Teem is brand of lemon-lime-flavored soft drink produced by The Pepsi-Cola Company. It was introduced in 1960 as Pepsi's answer to 7 Up and Coca-Cola's Sprite.[2]

Overview

Teem was sold in the United States and Canada until it was discontinued in 1984 due to declining sales. Lemon-Lime Slice was introduced to replace Teem,[3] though it was still available at some soda fountains into the 1990s. Sierra Mist has since taken over the Teem role in the US.

Teem remained on sale today in Brazil, Uruguay, Honduras, Nepal, and South Africa; it survived into the 1990s in other markets too, before Pepsi authorized vendors to replace it with 7 Up. It was available in India & Pakistan as well.[1]
