I have had this a couple of times, once while camping and once for choir. The convenience of the pour-a-packet-in-a-water-bottle beverages cannot be overemphasized here, because lord knows I didn’t drink this for the taste. Basically, when dissolved in a bottle of water, the water’s texture thickens slightly and you get a little tiny vegetal green tea taste that you almost feel you might be imagining. The water turns sickening green and murky, but the taste is quiet enough to be almost unnoticeable. Quite frankly, the price ($9.99 for ten packets; the Matcha packets are twice as much) combined with the lack of flavor puts this out of the realm of re-buying possibility. I love Rishi and I think they have some of the most forward-thinking teas and tea products out there today (AND they’re a Wisconsin company). But this particular idea? Fail. I’m giving it the points I am because it doesn’t actually taste BAD per se.

(And I’m bringing a few packets with me to Turkey just because they’re interesting, and maybe I can bond with some fellow tour members by giving them a packet for their water bottles!)

So wait, is this actual powdered tea, like Matcha, or is it dehydrated powder ala Nestea?

It’s powdered tea, which is why it costs so much, I assume.

Hi, I’m a librarian, SCA member, and tea lover from Madison, WI. I’ve been drinking tea all my life, but have recently become more of a fanatic about it. Single, straight, and looking. Would love to take a date to one of the great tea places here in Madison!
