Good Drink Organic Spritzer Wild Blackberry

Good Drink Organic Spritzer Wild Blackberry

Canada is the home to some pretty fantastic beverages. This may only be the second Good Drink product I’ve ever drunk, but I think it’s pretty safe to say that it is the cream of an already wonderful crop. This is carbonated water, blackberry juice and cane sugar. It’s simple. It’s tasty. These days I would expect myself to say that I would have liked it more with less or no sugar in it, but I’m pretty fond of it the way it is. I don’t know if I would change a thing. It only has 13% juice in it, but you would be extremely surprised to learn just how flavorful 13% can be. I wonder if the percentage was higher, if the whole thing would seem like too much. Perhaps I will have to buy an obscene amount of blackberries and juice them myself. Then use beakers and such to work out different ratios to carbonated water. How much do you think that little experiment will cost me? Probably about as much as a college education.

Good Drink Mango Tea Hibiscus & Vanilla

Good Drink Mango Tea Hibiscus & Vanilla

I will start this review off with a quote from Editor Dan, “Holy crap it tastes as good as it smells!” Let me tell you people this is one of the most nasal cavity pleasing I have ever took a sniff of. Well that doesn’t sound appealing at all. Seriously though the fruity vanilla aroma that emits from this bottle is what I imagine the perfect island paradise to smell like. It smells wonderful, but it’s not too strong like those candy perfumes that your younger sister wore in the 90s. This is a classy island smell.

It also tastes like it smells: classy. The secret here is that this is not your everyday black or green tea in this bottle. It is an “herbal extract” that is a combination of hibiscus, rosehips, vanilla beans, raspberry leaves and lemon peel. To be honest Good Drink could have stopped right there, and I would have a drink that I loved. The folks at the company had a larger vision though. Theirs was a vision of a national takeover of the teas of Canada (to be fair, not a large take over at all) and they did the unthinkable, they added mango to an already stellar drink. The result: magic in a bottle, well almost. Everything about this beverage would be absolutely perfect if they slightly changed but one thing. There is a tad too much vanilla in this tea. It smoothes it out more than a tea should be and it pushes it almost to the dangerous level of potpourri taste. Luckily it doesn’t reach that line and it still tastes delectable. This tea will easy run the tea empire of Canada, but if the vanilla were a little less, I’m thinking Good Drink could take on the world. Think about it George, you could be a global power. Doesn’t that sound appealing?
