Truly Lemon Iced TeaTruly Lemon Tea Hard Seltzer Tastes Like an Arnold Palmer

The Arnold Palmer drink got its name in the 1960s when a woman overheard the famous golfer of the same name ordering a lemonade mixed with Iced Tea. The woman had called over to the waiter and asked for an Arnold Palmer, and thus, summer’s favorite beverage was born. Arnold Palmer had been drinking the mixture for years, enjoying the sweet, refreshing citrus with a light kick of caffeine. Fast forward to the present. Now on the market is Truly Lemon Tea Hard Seltzer which captures some of that 60’s era carefree fun in its flavor and delivery. With one of these Truly beverages, you can enjoy the familiar taste of summer. It is a beverage package that is sure to delight.

Enticing Aroma

True to its name, when you open a can of Truly Lemon Tea Hard Seltzer you are blessed with the scent of citrus and the subtle aroma of iced tea. It is a very enticing aroma to say the least. In truth, the beverage has a very powerful lemon scent, but not overly so. The fragrance is extremely inviting. The beverage has 5% alcohol by volume (ABV) and comes in at only 100 calories per serving (one can). It has an alcoholic kick, but not too much of one. As Truly brews this beverage with real tea, it has a very small amount of caffeine, coming in at about 9 mg per 12 oz can. The lemon tea drink has only 2 grams of total carbs and 0 grams of total sugars. In fact, Truly uses honey and stevia to provide the necessary sweetness to the beverage.

Fresh Brewed Tea Taste

The flavor of Truly Lemon Tea Hard Seltzer is a very positive and inviting one. Despite the 5% ABV, there is no overwhelming boozy taste. Rather, Truly treats you to a drink that tastes just like the brewed iced tea with lemon that you might make on a hot summer day. Because of the combination of tea and lemon flavors, the Truly offering is highly reminiscent of an Arnold Palmer. Arnold Palmers are a mixture of half tea and half lemonade. Truly makes this beverage with black tea, which is generally stronger in flavor than yellow, white, or green teas. Black tea is known for its antioxidants. It also contains L-theanine and a small amount of caffeine.

Evokes Memories

When you chose a hard seltzer, you are looking for a flavor that moves you. Often times, a modern hard seltzer can evoke memories of sunny days. Truly Lemon Tea Hard Seltzer is just such a beverage. As the lemon and iced tea flavor mix in your mouth and bathe your tongue in delight, you will be reminded of summer days celebrating with friends. Although it has an alcoholic kick, this drink is free of any heavy boozy flavors. You can enjoy one, or a couple. Either way, it will be a delightful flavor experience for you.
