Trader Joe’s is always coming through with unique sparkling water choices that give your love for La Croix a run for its bubbles. In the past, the healthy grocer has released niche flavors like rhubarb and elderflower, but the latest mix might just be the most impressive yet: It does contain a hard-to-find Japanese superfood, after all.

According to a press release, you can now find Sparkling Coconut Water with Yuzu on store shelves, which features an exotic citrus fruit that’s essentially a combination of a lime, mandarin orange, and grapefruit. Mostly grown in East Asia, yuzu’s tart and bright flavor instantly makes you feel energized and refreshed when you taste it, which is why it’s often found in recipes for dressings and sauces. But this time, it’s combined with coconut water that’s free of any added sugars.

The new sparkling water features yuzu, an exotic citrus fruit that’s essentially a combination of a lime, mandarin orange, and grapefruit.

Aside from the drink’s hint of sour tang helping you feel a little more alert and awake, yuzu has some other notable benefits: Because of its super-high level of vitamin C, it could help boost your immune system and stave off illness and disease. And in a small study, the fruit was found to up mental health as well by lifting the moods of folks with PMS symptoms. Another study found the compound limonene—which is found in yuzu’s peel—could potentially help reduce inflammation.

Basically, if you’re going to sip on some sparkling water, it might as well be jam-packed with a rare superfood, right?
