I am generally of the opinion that two great tastes can taste great together. I’ve put many individual things I like together, much to my friends’ chagrin, their disapproval apparent in their “Eewwww” response. Most of the time, the result is pretty fantastic. On rare occasions, not so much. Friends, I’m sad to report that the moon was distinctly blue on the evening I tried this beverage.

I love green tea. I love root beer. I love coming back from the supermarket with at least one beverage I’ve never tried before. After weeks of passing this one by, I took a chance and gambled on Steaz green tea root beer. I lost. Made with Ceylon green tea, sparkling filtered water and organic evaporated cane juice, Steaz green tea root beer tastes like both green tea and root beer; if you pause and savour a sip, you can taste each separately. Unfortunately, I did not want to savour a sip. While fizzy and cold go a long way toward making a drink refreshing, good flavour is needed to take it the rest of the way. Sadly, these two great tastes do not taste great together.

2012.10.07: I hear people like to understand other people’s ratings, so here’s a loose guide:

01-29: Dear God, why.
30-49: I’ll finish this cup, I guess, but no more.
50-59: Meh.
60-69: Decent. Maybe I can blend it with something else and make it better.
70-79: Heeey, this is quite good!
80-89: I love it, but I’m not in love with it.
90-100: Permanently resident in my Happy Place.


Update: I have steeped, and it was good. =] Still a tea-ophyte, though.


This is a tea site, so I feel like “well, I’m Indian” should be enough of an introduction. Because, I mean, it’s kind of in my genes, right? But the fact of the matter is that I’m an absolute tea-ophyte.

I’ve just discovered a world beyond Celestial Seasonings. I’ve just discovered “sachets” instead of “normal” tea bags and bought my first loose tea sampler. I don’t get the whole water temperature and steep time thing yet, nor that if I want to get a yixiang tea pot, I’d need one for each type of tea. I have this infuser ball thing, but I haven’t used it yet.

Don’t cringe, but right now I’m still just boiling water and pouring it over a teabag, adding some sugar, and drinking a nice, hot cuppa. I’d like to learn more, I think, and I’d like to train my palate. I figure participating in this community is the best way to do that.

So ya. Hi!
