drank Sencha Honeydew/Lemon by ESP Emporium
1196 tasting notes

Ugh why don’t teas stay added to your cupboard? I added this not even a day ago! I just got back from getting my growler filled up and I am not going back outside again until it’s under 100. So gross.

Before I start drinking that, since hardly walking causes profuse sweating (and you can’t even breathe because it is most definitely a ozone code purple day just like yesterday, it’s terrible). I cold steeped this last night and am now drinking it.

SO much better than I expected! It comes on strong with the lemon though upon taking a sip, almost like a more natural tasting green tea lemonade. It quickly mellows out with the honeydew mixing in. It’s a very refreshing combination. This is well done, I might give it a try hot if I don’t run out of it for iced tea this summer.

Neither fruit flavor tastes very artificial, which I also appreciate. As usual, I could do with a bit more of a green tea flavor but it did end up steeping a pretty long time, almost 17 hours.

What’s a growler?? Also, I feel like I didn’t see this in your cupboard yesterday and therefore didn’t put it on my list, which I totally would have because there’s honeydew in it!

And, what is ozone code purple?? I’m from Sask where air quality is pretty darn good unless there’s a nearby forest fire, and am only just getting used to smog advisories here in Ontario, but I haven’t heard of code purple.

A growler is a refillable glass bottle for beer (or apparently iced coffee concentrate) so you can get it filled and bring it back, which is probably what I love most about them.
Code purple is basically the air sucks for everyone so don’t exert yourself outside. They said it was only going to be red yesterday which is bad enough, but I can seriously tell the air is bad. Here’s the little chart: http://www.air.dnr.state.ga.us/information/aqi.html
And it’s gross because you can just see it in the air, and the sky is this ugly grey. It’s actually clear outside but you’d have no idea.

And I will add this to your list. I thought it was on there because I thought it was in my cupboard!

Ewww, yuck. That code purple looks like no fun! Stay inside!

The growler sounds interesting, although I wouldn’t purchase either of those things :D Refillable tea bottle, anyone?

And thanks for adding it! :D

OMG!!! I’m afraid to go to Georgia now!!! Holy crap! Why is the air so bad there?!

Atlanta and all the cars/traffic in combination with gas prices going down. A city about 60 miles or so south of Atlanta is only code orange which has been most of the days here. When we went out, I was amazed at how many people were out and about, they aren’t helping whatsoever. Of course neither were we, but we were desperate to get this beer since it’s seasonal haha.

I am tempted to use it as a tea bottle since it’s far cheaper than a pitcher at $4, and Whole Foods always swaps it out for a new one when I go so they can I guess clean it even better.

Wow, I suppose that makes sense but it’s still scary. I’m glad I never looked up the air quality levels when I lived in LA. *Shiver.
