The Healthy Beverage Co. is launching what it claims to be the first organic and Fair Trade-certified energy drink in the US.

The Pennsylvania-based company said yesterday (3 January) that Steaz Energy Drink is available nationwide. The company, which already sells Steaz Green Tea Soda, said the berry-flavoured carbonated drink is sourced from organic, Fair-Trade certified green tea from Sri Lanka.

Steaz Energy Drink also contains organic Guayaki yerba mate, which comes from a native tree found in the Brazilian rainforests. Mate contains three times the caffeine content of green tea. The drink also contains acai, a Brazilian fruit high in anthocyanin, and guarana.

Steaz Energy will be available in 12 oz. cans at US$1.99.
