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.
