I used to drink a ton of soda pop when I was in high school and college. Then sometime in my twenties I made a complete switch to water when I realized how much sugar was in them. And of course with all the concerns about high fructose corn syrup, well it just isn't something I drink much these days. Every once in awhile though, I love to drink something sweet and carbonated though. I decided to give Steaz Sparkling Green Tea a try.
It is billed as a being organic and fair trade and made with decaffeinatedCeylon green tea leaves. I'm a huge fan of fair trade, as there is some assurance that workers are treated fairly and paid a good wage for their work. I tried the orange flavored version last night and I really loved it. There is also a root beer and a lemon version readily available too. According to the package it has sparkling filtered water, organic evaporated cane juice, citric acid, natural orange flavor, sodium citrate, organic Ceylon green tea, beta carotene (Vitamin A), vegetable juice for color and ascorbic acid (Vitamin C). Compare that to your favorite soda pop.
The flavors are nice and light and not too overpowering. It is also not oversweet. Definitely a bonus for me as I usually drink my tea unsweetened. I will definitely be keeping this in my fridge on a regular basis. How about you? Have you tried Steaz? What do you think of it? What are your favorite flavors? Is there anything else like it that you recommend?
