Today Jason and I went to Whole Foods to pick up lunch and dinner. While grabbing my drink of choice other than tea, Poland Spring Raspberry-Lime Sparkling Water, I bumped into a sample table full of Steaz Green Tea Sodas. I was intrigued by the concept, so I decided to give one a try. There were three options to choose from: root beer, raspberry, and orange. Upon careful consideration, I thought raspberry would match well with a green tea flavor, so that is what I opted for. According to a review site of beverages, I think I chose poorly. I could not taste any hint of green tea, but this did not make the beverage any less pleasurable. I did enjoy the drink, despite it taking like cough medicine (think Robitussin). The carbonation added to my enjoyment. And it’s organic.

A description of the sodas offered by Steaz:
One sip of Steaz Green Tea Soda (formerly Steap), and it will be obvious that this revolutionary beverage is going to change the way you feel about soda forever. Each bottle is micro-brewed fresh from the finest Ceylon green tea, grown high in the fog-shrouded, mystical mountains of Sri Lanka. We have miraculously blended the smooth, mellow taste of green tea with the highest quality organic sugar on Earth — the result is tantalizing.
