Goldenstar Tea

You can drink Golden Star straight and alcohol-free, or mix it with spirits for sparkling tea cocktails. Photography courtesy Golden Star Tea.

WHAT IT IS: An all-natural brewed and fermented sparkling tea.
WHY IT’S DIFFERENT: There’s nothing on the market like it, and it’s terrific. We wish we could spend every day reading books on the patio, sipping Golden Star Tea.
WHY WE LOVE IT: Complex and wonderful flavors, natural effervescence, sophisticated, elegant and fun. The packaging is beautiful, elegant for serving to guests or to give as gifts. At $12.95/730ml bottle, give one to everyone you know for the holidays (teens can drink it, and will love it), and buy a case for parties.
