LaCroix might be the face of America’s sparkling water infatuation, but it’s not the only carbonated beverage worth obsessing over right now. In fact, boasting double-digit growth, the sparkling water market is ripe for innovation. From fizzy tea to seltzer infused with traditional Asian flavors, brands are getting creative with bubbles. Here are six carbonated drinks we love to help you stay cool in the summer heat.

Dubbed the first Asian-inspired sparkling water, Sanzo offers flavors beyond the ubiquitous lemon and cherry. Made with real Indian alphonso mangoes, Thai lychee and calamansi, a type of citrus from the Philippines, each variety is a fun way to try (and fall in love with) fruit that’s not always easy to find in the U.S.

For sparkling water with more floral-focused flavors, try Aura Bora. Real herbal extracts, fruits and flowers are used to create unexpected combinations like Lavender Cucumber and Cactus Rose.

While many sparkling teas are overly syrupy, Minna’s lightly brewed recipe doesn’t use sugars or sweeteners. There are fruit-forward flavors for both black and green tea lovers. The popular Citrus Black Tea has notes of mango and orange peel, while the Tropical Green Tea tastes like pineapple and passionfruit.

Kombucha is naturally bubbly due to fermentation, but Revive Sparkling Kombucha adds even more carbonation with a proprietary pasteurization process. Despite being shelf-stable, the kombucha still contains five billion live probiotics at the time of manufacture to supposedly support digestive health.

Longstanding San Pellegrino is now entering the flavored seltzer game – previously, it sold its iconic unflavored sparkling bottles or super-sweet sparkling fruit drinks – with Essenza, a flavored mineral water line with zero calories or sweeteners. The line includes three flavors that will have you feeling dapper, like all its drinks do: Lemon & Lemon Zest, Tangerine & Wild Strawberry and Dark Morello Cherry & Pomegranate.

A blend of Kombucha Town’s raw kombucha cultures, water from the North Cascade Mountains and yes, lots of bubbles, Kombucha Town’s Live Seltzer carries all the purported health benefits of kombucha in convenient cans. All ingredients are fresh-pressed, including cucumbers, Jasmine tea, ginger and grapefruit.

Spindrift sparkling waters are unsweetened and lightly carbonated, and they're made with real squeezed fruit. All of the flavors are delicious, so don't limit yourself to just one: Opt for the variety pack so you can enjoy lemon, grapefruit, raspberry lime and orange mango.

Carbonated water, organic lime flavor and organic ginger flavor — that's all there is to these amazing Nixie sparkling waters. Prepare yourself for a clean and refreshing taste you won't be able to resist.
