Newtown, PA – Steaz Organic Green Tea Soda, the world’s first carbonated green tea, will be available in four pack carriers beginning March, 2006.

Featuring graphics from the company’s award winning design team, Steaz four pack carriers are made from a specially designed cardboard that resists tearing – even when wet. Available in Raspberry, Key Lime, Root Beer, Orange, Ginger Ale, Lemon Dew, Grape, Cola and Diet Black Cherry, the launch of the four packs coincides with the beginning of the 2006 beverage season.
“In 2005, we spent a lot of time talking and listening to both consumers and retailers” says Steaz co-founder Steven Kessler. “Consumers are looking for ways to make the shopping experience easier, and these four pack carriers offer maximum convenience.

“Retailers were looking for an effective way to prominently show the features and benefits of Steaz. With fresh clean images and product copy, these carriers immediately convey what sets Steaz apart from the current soda crowd. Their beauty will take over the entire shelf and provide great end cap and case stack opportunities!”

According to Steaz co-founder Eric Schnell, “Initially, we were going to launch the four packs with only our three most popular flavors. But when we reviewed the flavor sales in 2005, all of the flavors showed strong growth. It quickly became apparent that we had to create four packs for the entire Steaz collection.”

“We know that when it comes to soft drinks, people are passionate about their favorite flavors,” says Schnell. “Our company was founded on the premise of providing a healthy, new spin on soda. With the four pack carrier, it’s even easier for people to experience green tea’s benefits.

Rich in antioxidants and vitamins, each refreshing Steaz has the flavor of soda -without the artificial flavors, colors and preservatives generally found in typical soft drinks, and. Each bottle is hand-crafted and micro-brewed fresh, combining certified organic and 100% natural ingredients that are sourced from around the world. Steaz was the first soft drink to be stamped with the USDA Organic Seal and is Kosher too.
