Santa Cruz Organic launches refreshing TeaZer organic sparkling teas


CHICO, Calif. (May 7, 2009) – To tease and please the palate, Santa Cruz Organic®, introduces its new TeaZer™ organic sparkling teas. Blended with fair trade certified tea from Choice Organic Tea and Santa Cruz Organic fruit juice, each TeaZer offers just the right mix of fresh tea and real fruit taste. Lightly sweetened and conscious of calories to please any discerning drinkers, TeaZers utilize a blend of green, white and black tea for a trinity of taste.

Each of the four new flavors includes a splash of juice to add subtle flavor and character to the carbonated tea blend:

• Lemon – a touch of crisp lemon

• Raspberry – neither sweet nor tart, just a hint of ripe raspberry

• Pear – the nuance of a fresh piece of fruit

• Passion fruit – a reminder of tropical flavors

Santa Cruz Organic found the perfect partner in Choice Organic Teas.
