With premium brewed tea as its main ingredient, the all-natural flavors of AriZona are the best-tasting and best-selling tea beverages on the market, without any artificial flavors, colors or preservatives. AriZona tea was founded by longtime partners John Ferolito and Don Vultaggio, who had been in the beer business since 1971. In 1990, inspired by the popularity of another commercial tea beverage, they decided to get into the tea business. With a name and design inspired by their Southwest lifestyle, and a focus on providing beneficial antioxidant properties and all-natural ingredients, AriZona Tea soon became the number one seller in the United States, and popular around the world. The AriZona Tea brand now encompasses a wide variety of products, including sports drinks, chocolate fudge floats, coconut water, diet teas, energy drinks, lemonade and other juice blends, ginseng tea, Skinnygirl sparklers, tea bags, mixes, waters, water enhancers and more.
