Couple of weeks ago [sometime in the summer, I started writing this entry in the summer and just got back to it, but they still sell this stuff; I just seen it yesterday at Stop & Shop] I stopped by at the Walgreens and noticed that they have this new Canada Dry ginger ale up for sale. I never seen it before and idea of tea-flavored soda intrigued me, and the price was $1.00 on sale, so I knew that I had to give it a try. The label was pretty interesting as well with the green tea theme of leaves and the header of "antioxidants" at the front.
The drink itself is overally pleasant, well carbonated and not as sharp like the original ginger ale due to the green tea. The green tea part tasted very much like Lipton green tea from a gallon jug, so it was pretty good. To tell the truth, I am not a big fan of ginger ale but I do not hate it; I just drink it once in a while [like a bottle or 2 every 3 months or so]. Carbonation was pretty good as you can see on the photo and it pretty much charged-up the green tea flavor into a pleasant sipperious beverage that many people would be curious to try out. I think that they will discontinue this flavor of ginger ale in the nearby future: either before the upcoming holidays to give way to cranberry-flavored Canada Dry or right after new year timeperiod in January of 2013, so grab a bottle if you can and let me know your opinion. I rate this green tea ginger ale at 4.1/5.0 with a value rating of 4.4/5.0 on $1.00 sale.
