Review: Jones GABA Grapefruit Tea Juice

We’ve previously looked at other flavors in Jones Soda’s GABA lineup, including Jones GABA Fuji Apple Tea Juice and Jones GABA Nectarine Tea Juice. If you are interested in the history and background on this series of drinks, see our Jones GABA overview. Today we look at Jones GABA Grapefruit Tea Juice.

This drink comes packaged in a tall 12 oz. call with an attractive package design, emphasized by a white and red color scheme. As with the others in this GABA line, I’m impressed by the look. There’s quite a bit of text on the package, but it portrays the look/feel of a nutrient-oriented beverage.

The drink itself is light yellow in color, similar to a light tea or ginger ale. There’s a faint grapefruit scent that emanates from the beverage. Overall, the feeling is airy and fresh.

As for the taste, it’s watered-down in overall experience, and doesn’t really taste like grapefruit. It’s sweet and based in tea, but with a hint of citrus. Definitely would lean more on the juice side of the “tea/juice” tasting experience here. It’s somewhat hard to describe, but it’s pleasant. The flavors aren’t overpowering and provide a nice compliment to food.
