Teas' Tea addiction
I'm totally addicted these days to a cold, bottled beverage that's nothing but purified water, high quality tea leaves and vitamin C. It's called Teas' Tea. This unsweetened (but somewhat sweet tasting), calorie free drink is a perfect complement to just about anything I eat at lunch. At $3 a pop, it really blows my budget but I rationalize by foregoing my regular Starbucks, non-fat, no-foam, chai tea latte in the afternoons!
Don't know if it's the antioxidants or my mind at play, but I do feel a sense of rejuvenation and a burst of energy after finishing a bottle of my favourite Green White, one of the many flavours available. On days when I'm not very hungry, I opt for a light sandwich and the Green Hoji, a roasted green tea whose toasty and smokey flavour just fills me up.
Teas' Tea is owned by the Japanese company Ito En, whose flagship tea store was voted by Zagat as the number one tea destination in the city. The company also owns Kai restaurant, which was voted Best Japanese by Citysearch in 2003.
