Yet another food review
It must seem like all I do is eat.
But most days, I really do get things accomplished. Productive things. Things that escape my memory for the moment, but I'm sure they're there somewhere.
Time for another installment of Melissa's Product Reviews. In the past, I've talked about Van's Egg Rolls, and Diet A&W Root Beer, and Boca.
This time, it's green tea.
Lipton Green Tea with Mandarin Oranges. In a cute little pyramid-shaped bag!
I was in Wal-Mart this morning to pick up something for lunch (I have a book club meeting at noon) and I remembered that we also needed bread at home. And on the bread aisle is the tea. And in the tea section is this stuff. And I was in need of some green tea. So I left the store with some.
After paying, of course. I'm tempted to say too much ($3.14 for 20 bags) but this is good stuff.
Really, really good stuff. Especially for someone who lives in a sort of good-stuff-free parallel universe.
With whole leaves of tea, and bits of dried citrus fruit. When you put the tea bag in hot water, what was a sad little collection of floatsam and jetsam at the bottom springs forth into life, and suddenly the whole bag is filled with lovely tea leaves.
I'm trying to drink more green tea. For one, I like it. For two, it's supposed to have all sorts of good-for-you properties, not the least among them is an increase in metabolism.
And we can all use a bit of that, can't we?
So, I give it, um, what kind of rating system can I use?
How about snaps, as in Pea Snap, Anna Marie's nickname?
Ok, on a scale of one to five, I give these tea bags five snaps!
