Review: Meditteranean Tea

Mediterranean Tea is an upstart line of herbal teas that are made with the leaves of the sideritis plant, also known as “Mountain Tea” or ironwort. This ingredient is popular in Eastern and Central Europe as it is believed to have both digestive and immunity benefits.

Review: KonaRed Cold Brew

KonaRed has created a line of cold brew coffees, launching with three flavor varieties: Original, Espresso, and Hawaiian Vanilla. Each one includes Kona and Colombian coffee as well as coffee fruit extract.

Review: Coco Community

Coco Community is a new “craft” coconut water from All Market, Inc., which is better known as the company behind Vita Coco. The USDA Organic, Non-GMO Project verified, and Fair for Life Certified product is a not-from-concentrate coconut water that is pasteurized and packaged in a PET bottle.

Review: Califia Farms – Three New Products

In this review, we’re taking a look at Califia Farms’ three most recent non-coffee offerings: Cali Coco, Ginger Almond Milk, and Matcha Almond Milk. Launched at Expo West 2016, these products are hands down the company's best flavors yet.

Review: WellWell

WellWell is an entry into the cold-pressed and high pressure processed (HPP) beverage space that is attempting a less traditional approach to branding and marketing.

Review: BluePrint Organic

BluePrint, which was a pioneer of the cold-pressed juice category, has launched its first significant line extension since the brand’s inception. Like much of BluePrint’s high pressure processed competition, this is an offering that’s geared towards conventional channels rather than natural.

Review: Hiblisscus Blends

Hiblisscus Blends is a line of naturally flavored hibiscus-based beverages whose premise is the health benefits of the hibiscus flower: the bottle notes that hibiscus has “been used for centuries to promote a healthy lifestyle.”

Review: Ginger Shots

We really like the idea of a USDA Organic line of high pressure processed ginger shots. But Ginger Shots seems more like a proof of concept than something that’s really ready to put its foot on the gas.

Review: Steaz Cactus Water

On the surface, venturing into cactus water seems like something that might make sense for a brand like Steaz. The company has done a good job of establishing itself as a purveyor of organic tea-based beverages and there’s certainly a trend out there with plant-based beverages such as cactus water.

Review: Saratoga Cold-Pressed Juices

Saratoga Juice Bar is a line of cold-pressed and high-pressure processed juices that currently features four varieties. The products come from Saratoga Springs, New York, which the company describes (via its web site) as a center for wellness.

Review: Juice Served Here Lemonade

For a company that has established itself by selling high-end, premium-priced raw juices in glass bottles, we think expansion into more mainstream offerings makes sense. And, really, what's more mainstream than a line of lemonades?

Review: Steamm Espresso

Made with water, coffee, cacao and stevia, Steamm’s Organic Raw Cacao shot is a simple, yet intense tasting, product. Steamm is certainly not the first to do a bottled coffee shot, but it is the first that we’ve seen focus on quality ingredients.

Review: La Colombe Draft Latte

As far as packaged iced coffee beverages go, La Colombe has definitely succeeded in creating something that’s unique and innovative with its Draft Latte.

Review: Red Ace Organics

Red Ace, a maker of organic beet-based liquid supplements, has introduced two new varieties: a turmeric-enhanced product and another blended with kale and spinach.
