Another freebie from the tea fest bag.

This is the same concept as Emergen-C but contains green (closer to brown) tea powder. I prepared it with room temp water and had to stir it a bit to get the clumps to break up, no big deal. It looks unappealing with a brownish-green murky tint – my mind went to algae-infested pondwater. That, combined with the very sour taste from the acerola cherry powder, made me down this as quick as possible. The warming ginger comes through in the aftertaste.

Meh. It tastes ok, but I prefer tea in a traditional way and wouldn’t purchase this because I think products like this are frivolous. If you’re a fan of Emergen-C packets and want some green tea, give it a try.

Huh. I think I have this one in my Tea Fes bag as well. Doesn’t sound like the sort of thing I’d keep around either, but since I’ve been coming down with a cold, I think I’ll try this…

Always open to gifting or swapping teas. I do send international when feasible. Please follow and send a message if you see a tea in my notes or cupboard that piques your interest.

Tea became a hobby and my daily drink of choice some time late in the last decade. My introduction to loose leaf came in the form of dumpster-dived Wuyi oolong packets that somebody left upon moving out of an apartment building. From there, my palate expanded to teas from across China and the world. I used to focus more on taste and still harbor the habit, but after trying sheng puer, I tend to focus more on how a tea feels in my body. Does it complement my constitution? Does it change my mood or does it enhance my current mindstate? Flavored teas are not a favorite but I do drink them intermittently.

In terms of who I am, you could consider me a jill of all trades. Specialty is not my strength, as can be seen in the spread of my tea notes. I might have attention issues. One thing I will always love is riding a bicycle.
