When you find it on sale......

I'm very.very.very picky about tea. Especially green teas. Most of them taste like flowers to me. Potent, overbearing, sickeningly perfume-y flowers. ICK! So when a friend of mine recommended Good Earth Green Tea with Lemongrass, I was skeptical. I forgot about them, actually, for awhile until one day I was in the Discount Grocery. I saw a box of these tea bags that I *thought* sounded familiar. I promptly called my friend, but he didn't answer. $1.89. No huge loss if they were the wrong ones, I suppose. I could use them for a green tea bath (which is where my other green tea bags have been going).

I brought them home & later was able to catch him on IM. Indeed the bags were the right ones. I remained skeptical & they sat for a few weeks before I grew the cajones to try them. I boiled up my water, added a little honey & waited for the steep.... Then I tasted the most magnificent & glorious green tea WITHOUT the taste of
potent, overbearing, sickeningly perfume-y flowers. YUM!!!! Alas, I had gotten the very last box from the Discount Grocery & City Market doesn't carry them. I found them on amazon. For some reason I held off ordering. I have many teas in my house, plus I still had quite a few in my box.

So while in Casper, Monday, we had to fill a prescription. Rather than go to Chinamart, we went to Safeway. While waiting, we perused the store. Those 4 boxes in the picture above? 2/$4. OH YUM!!! Now I know why I was holding off on ordering them from Amazon.

Try them. You'll like them!!!

I'm not much of a tea drinker (I'm a coffee girl, myself) and I've never tried green tea, but if you recommend it, I might just give it a try. :-)

I'll let you know what I think...
