A recommendation. A product plug, if you please.
Normally I despise green tea. I just can't get past the taste of it. I liken it to chewing on grass - which I would never do - so why would I drink tea that tastes like what I think grass would taste like?
I went to a party recently and the only non-soda, non-lemonade (because citrus fruit sucks and citrus drinks suck even more. Well. Except for margaritas. But that's different and entirely its own post.), non-water drink they had was Cranberry Pomegranate Green Tea iced tea by Lipton.
And can I just say here that it is ICED TEA. NOT ice tea. People forget the "d" all the time and it drives me nuts. Especially on menus.
The Lipton CPGT was quite yummy. The cranberry and pomegranate disguised the yucky green tea taste quite nicely - I can taste hints of it, but it is not over-powering. I've already gone through a box and it's on my grocery list - but I may make a special trip because it is that good.
There is just enough summer left for you to try this tea!
I can't imagine drinking it hot, though. Eew.
(Also, filming scenes from Whip It! in Ypsilanti today. I can't wait to see how they make Ypsilanti, MI, look like Austin, TX. We have no Bell Tower - just a spectacular water tower.)
