TeaZazz Hybrid Soft Drink

TeaZazz offers a line of sparkling tea beverages in four flavors: Original, Green Tea Lemon, Peach and Green Tea Mint.

“Many soda drinkers struggle to find a healthy alternative that can satisfy the taste requirements provided by their favorite soft drink,” said TeaZazz co-founder Delicia Soliman. “Today’s ready-to-drink tea options range from overly- sweetened national brands to organic options lacking in flavor, and diet soft drinks loaded with saccharin or aspartame, artificial flavors and preservatives are not exactly the picture of health. TeaZazz offers a healthy new way to drink tea, that is also a carbonated replacement for high sugar content soft drinks, with only 20-25 calories per serving.”

TeaZazz, invented in 2006 by Tamara Saretsky and Delicia Soliman is a combination of tea and sparkling soda. TeaZazz delivers the health benefits associated with the antioxidants in tea, and taste that does not rely on the high fructose corn syrup found in soft drinks.
