Jones Soda Co. to Launch New Organic Tea Line

SEATTLE--(CCNMatthews - Feb 24, 2005) -

Jones Soda Co. (the "Company" or "Jones") (OTC:JSDA) (TSX VENTURE:JSD)
today announced that it will launch a new line of organic teas in the
second quarter of 2005.

The new line will be called Jones Organics and will offer six tea
flavors: Strawberry White Tea, Cherry White Tea, Berry Green Tea,
Mandarin Green Tea, Tropical Red Tea and Peach Red Tea. All will be
featured in a proprietary 14-ounce glass bottle. This new offering will
allow Jones Soda to enter into the natural foods trade, which continues
to grow year over year.

Peter Van Stolk, President and C.E.O. stated, "Jones Organics will be a
valuable asset to our brand portfolio. The organic industry is no longer
a niche market but is now part of the mainstream. Ready-to-drink teas
were up seven percent last year and both the category and the trade are
growing. We are ready to make a meaningful impact with our new line."

Headquartered in Seattle, Washington, Jones Soda Co. manufactures its
Jones Soda, Jones Naturals, Jones Energy and Whoopass brands and sells
through its distribution network in select markets across North America
and through several large national retail accounts. A leader in the
premium soda category, Jones is known for its innovative labeling
technique that incorporates always-changing photos sent in from its
consumers. Jones Soda is sold through traditional beverage retailers and
everywhere you'd never expect to find a soda.
