Teatulia’s Tea Sodas Are the Warm-Weather Drink You Didn’t Know You Needed

These refreshing beverages even come in outdoor-recreation-friendly cans.


Warm-weather après is forever changed—and improved—now that Denver-based Teatulia is canning its popular black, green, lemongrass, and mint tea sodas. No, the four sippers don’t contain alcohol; instead, they’re built around ethically sourced, organic teas (which, if we’re being honest, are a much better way to rehydrate after a grueling hike or trail run) grown in Teatulia’s garden in northern Bangladesh. Fruit purées, dried herbs, and organic cane sugar (16 to 20 grams per 12-ounce can) go into the mixes too, but the sodas aren’t cloying, due to the tannins in the teas. You can take home a can ($1.99) or two to throw in your pack from Teatulia’s airy LoHi Tea Bar, but the sodas can also be found across the state, from Marczyk Fine Foods to Whole Foods (which will start stocking the colorful cans sometime this summer) to restaurants like Biju’s Little Curry Shop—in case you après with vindaloo. Just look for the vibrant can designs, appropriately inspired by India’s Holi festival, a Hindu celebration marking the arrival of spring.
