Yay! I love it when coworkers bribe me with tea! \o/ Sure, it reminds me a bit more of a iced Chinese green than iced sencha and, like with most bottled teas, you can taste the ascorbic acid, but all in all, it pretty much works. Am I going to buy a pack and take it home with me so I can have it whenever I want? No. It’s a really good bottled tea but it is still a bottled tea. But if I’m out and about, I’d totally pick up a bottle to sip on while running around.
And speaking of bottles, can I just say I have an absurd but undeniable affinity toward Japanese plastic bottles? Their weight, design, caps, labels, everything – they just make me smile. Unlike Japan’s steel coke cans that always tricked me into thinking I had another swallow or two in the bottom when I did not. Mean coke cans. Nice tea bottles. Pardon me while I pet the empty bottle for a moment, k?
