Canada Dry Ginger Ale With Green Tea

     If I had to rank my favorite ginger ale's, Vernors would be number 1, and Canada Dry number 2. I enjoy Vernors more because the barrel aged liquid gives it a richer, fuller taste. However, Canada Dry does out perform Vernors when it comes to flavors. Yes, flavors. Those pesky Canadians have added green tea to there delicious ale to give it a better flavor, and some health benefits (gasp!). The green tea adds an antioxidant called Epigallocatechin gallate, or better known as EGCG. EGCG is a potent antioxidant with numerous health benefits. So if there ever was a "healthy" soda, this would be it. But, how does it perform? Read on and find out.

     If your not familiar with regular ginger ale, I'm afraid there's not much I can do for you. Ginger ale is one of those sodas where the flavor is nearly impossible to describe. By adding green tea to the equation, I can tell you that the flavor is delicious ginger ale with a hint of green tea. It's actually a nice combination, but I do wish the green tea was more pronounced. It has an ample carbonation level, in case you were wondering. The addition of green tea to ginger ale won't win any awards, but I enjoyed it enough to give it a solid score.

     Verdict: 7.2 out of 10. Why? The green tea needs to be more pronounced, and the flavor didn't "wow" me. Other than that, it's a solid drink and I recommend getting some.
