drank Green Tea Ginger Ale by Canada Dry
1962 tasting notes

When I first saw this bottle in the store I thought it was just a bottled green tea produced by Canada Dry, and I wasn’t very interested. But then I looked closer today at the airport and saw that it was actually green tea ginger ale. Well, that changes everything! I like ginger ale, and I like green tea, and I’ve never heard of them together before. Plus, this would be like a tea soda, which was also intriguing.

I continued to be pleasantly surprised, as this is actually a very tasty bottle of soda. The green tea and ginger notes are well balanced, nice and light, neither is overpowering or artificial tasting. It’s also not super super sweet, which is suprising for a soda. I mean, it’s sweet, definitely, but not cloyingly so. I’m really enjoying this and wish I could find it in the states, where it almost certainly not available.

Where did you find this? In Canada? It sounds good!

Not exactly the same, but Harney & Sons carries a jasmine green tea ginger ale. A restaurant near my school has the bottles, so I tried it there and it was pretty amazing: http://www.harney.com/results.cfm?secondary=1050

I’ve found this in the grocery store in the US.

I actually had that jasmine green tea ginger ale at a local food truck not too long ago. It was… decent, but disturbing? There was like an inch thick layer of sediment on the bottom. Presumably the one I got wasn’t so fresh.

Well I’ll have to keep my eye out for both this and the Harney version, though I’ve never seen Harney bottled teas anywhere around me (besides if I make a trip to the Harney Soho store). I’m also wondering if the version of the Canada Dry in the states is a US version (ie, with HFCS), or if it’s sugar sweetened like the Canadian one.

This is available seasonally (Christmastime) in the US, I get about 10 bottles every year and drink them way too fast. It is so refreshing!

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: Mind-blowingly good, just right for my palate, and teas that just take me to a happy place.
89-85: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
84-80: Pretty tasty teas that I enjoy well enough, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but only if there were no preferrable options.
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
Unrated: Usually I feel unqualified to rate these teas because they are types of teas that I tend to not like in general. Sometimes user error or tea brewed under poor conditions.
