Real sugar and tropical flavors give Mexican sodas their refreshing powers
Jamaica soda, widely available in both glass and plastic bottles from Jarritos, is made from hibiscus flower; the deep red pigment comes from anthocyanin, a flavor molecule that contributes to the slightly astringent flavor and faint notes of over-steeped black tea. This flavor is notable for being one of the closest to a traditional agua de jamaica, which is tart, slightly syrupy, and sure to stain your white T-shirt if you dare to spill it. The carbonated version rounds off some of the mouth-puckering effect with effervescence and the magic of artificial flavoring. - - Gateways To Drinkery

Tamarindo sin gas, will cool a chili-enflamed mouth quickly. Same for jamaica, but not as quickly.
