Masq founder, Brad Parkes, enjoyed having a few drinks on a Friday or Saturday night but was also striving to make healthier choices and feel better consistently. On a mission to find a better way to drink, he encountered “less bad” options but didn’t see many with ingredients that could make them better, like nutrients and antioxidants.
Brad’s desire for a better-for-you alcoholic beverage initiated the journey that resulted in the creation of Masq Fusions, a line of healthful hard teas. Masq Fusion combines organic Yerba Mate (green-tea base) with fruit juice, herbal extract, monk fruit, blue agave nectar, and a proprietary adaptogen blend. The formula packs in a lot of healthful ingredients but is designed to sell on taste.
Masq Fusions come in brightly colored 12oz sleek cans packaged in convenient 4-packs.
We had the opportunity to sample all three Masq flavors: Dragon Fruit Acai, Lemon Ginger, and Blueberry Lavender.
Dragonfruit Acai – Masq Fusions Dragonfruit Acai opens with a sweet flowery aroma and pours to a soft yellow color. With a smooth, almost creamy texture and light carbonation, the beverage is crisp and just the right amount of sweet. The combination of tropical fruits creates an exotic taste that is enjoyably unique. We love the clean, light texture that is not at all syrupy or heavy.
Lemon Ginger – Masq Fusions Lemon Ginger has a light ginger scent with just a touch of lemon. We enjoyed the well-crafted balance between the bright, sweet citrus taste and the ginger’s warm spice.
Blueberry Lavender – Masq Fusions Blueberry Lavender is a dessert-like beverage with just the right level of sweetness. The bright berry flavors blend with the floral hint of lavender, creating a sweetly mellow blueberry treat. The clean, refreshing finish makes this beverage easy to sip and enjoy.
Refreshingly bubbly and flavorful, Masq Fusions are just as light as a seltzer, but with a bigger punch of flavor. With only 110 calories, Masq Fusions pack in both taste and antioxidants and adaptogens, for a healthfully satisfying drinking experience.
