Stainless Steel/Metal Straws

Hi, trying to use less plastic in my life, looking to pick up some metal straws. Does anyone have any recommendations for ones without a metal taste?

Not sure if it makes a difference being made in China versus made in USA, but any suggestions would be helpful :)

I too was recently looking for some and ended up getting these. They didn't have any taste or smell to them.

I bought these same straws off of Amazon and I can also vouch that they do not have a smell or taste to them. They are quite wide, however. I use them for bubble tea! For thinner straws, I actually bought reusable plastic straws at IKEA for really cheap a while ago - maybe consider something similar since they are so portable. I use the brush that came with those Amazon straws to clean them!

Or if you are really worried about a taste/smell, think about glass straws as well.

If you use it an aluminum can, it may have a metallic taste due to electrolysis of dissimilar metals, Al is more active while (stainless) steel is more noble.
Especially in an acidic environment..such as carbonated beverages.

But the can interior is coated with a plastic layer to prevent the soda from corroding the can.
