Wang Corn Silk

Wang Corn Silk

You know Max, right? He's been a real jerk lately. Let's pull a prank on him. Yeah, he has been a jerk, Charlie. He put all those thumbtacks on your chair last week. Who does that? Hasn't he heard of tetanus? I don't want that. We've got to get back at him, but with what? Oh, I've got it. Go grab that tea over there, I've got a great idea. There isn't enough to fill this bottle. This prank is going to rule. Now, take those Fritos, crush them up and put them in this washcloth. I'll show you. I've got this water. I'm going to pour water on the corn chips to kind of give the tea an "essence" of corn chip but with none of the grit so he can't tell. Oh man, it smells like corn chips but you'd never know what we did just by looking at it. Quick, put one pinch of sugar in there so it keeps him coming back.

This will teach him. He'll never play another practical joke on us again.

Yeo's Chrtsanthemum Tea Drink

Yeo's Chrtsanthemum Tea Drink

This is surprisingly good, like "would buy again" good. If I had to describe the taste, it would just be a black tea with a lot of cane sugar. I didn't get much chrysanthemum, which was honestly a bummer. I kind of wanted a nice, light flowery drink. There was an element of "something" which I'm assuming was chrysanthemum, but the sugar was a bit overpowering. Not too overpowering, but enough to beat the race to the finish line with the pre-desired flower taste.

Still it wasn't bad. I was hoping for a little dirty, garden flower taste, but, alas, it was not delivered.

Yeo's Ice Green Tea Brewed With Jasmine

Yeo's Ice Green Tea Brewed With Jasmine

Remember that time when you had an undying need to get a poncho? You thought they were just the coolest and you needed one to live, well at least to live with the kids who ditched class and snuck across the street to smoke cigarettes. It was the early 90's and it was a different world than it is now. It was a world where poncho's, or drug rugs, were a sign of stature.

You begged and pleaded with your mom to take you to get one. She wouldn't give in said that you would look stupid wearing one, especially since you hated the Grateful Dead. So you waited and ended up going with the older kids in your shop class that wore leather jackets, even in the summer. Those guys must be touch. They said they were going to the "head shop" anyways, but you had to pay gas, and ride in the trunk. Whatever, anything for that sweet, sweet poncho. As you walked into the shop, still a bit woozy from the exhaust that spilled in through the holes in the trunk, you were blasted with the smell of hippies and incense. It's a smell that you would become familiar with over the next few years at parties in dimly lit basements.

When you graduated high school you thought, and hoped that smell would never be apart of your life again. It didn't until you cracked open a can of Yeo's green tea. The smell was kind of there, but Christ did it taste the way that head shop smelled. One would think that something like that should never hit your taste buds, but it's actually a little bit of alright. This is supposed to be jasmine green tea, but I've had jasmine tea before and it tastes nothing like this. The only way to describe it is to say it tastes like ill lit basements, black-light posters, and incense. It will also fill you with shame for once owning a drug rug, even if you only wore it twice. Really, what was I thinking?

Drinho Chrysanthemum Tea Drink

Drinho Chrysanthemum Tea Drink

If my grandmother saw me drinking this she would probably yell something along the lines of, “You’re drinking mums. Why are you drinking mums? Why are you drinking flowers?” I knew a chrysanthemum was a flower, but I never would have thought “oh yeah those are mums like in my grandmother’s garden.” Yes I now realize that “mum”
is in chrysanthemum, but whenever I said the name before I always thought it was “chrysanthium.” I am certainly not a botanist.

To answer my grandmother’s question I would have to respond with “I am contractually obligated to try every drink that is in my path that is not alcoholic.” I basically signed the Hippocratic Oath of beverages. Did this drink look appetizing when I saw it in the store? Nope, but I bought it anyways out of obligation. I admit that I have grown to appreciate some flowery drinks over the past two years or so, but a flower that looks like the one on this can is not screaming flavor. I know exactly how that flower smells and I don’t want to taste it. I really don’t, but I must. Fine I’ll get it over with quick. Hmmm that was an unexpected turn of events. This drink is overloaded with the taste of licorice root. I expected Easter floral hell, but what I got was only ever so slightly floral and mostly licorice. Sometimes I wish that licorice root tasted like red licorice, but that’s really not licorice at all. I actually absolutely despise black licorice “licorice,” but I love things flavored with licorice root, specifically root beers. I’m actually a bit bummed that Mike isn’t here to enjoy this with me, because I know he would absolutely love it. To recreate this beverage, get yourself a bottle of sweet tea and while you’re drinking it chew on a stick from a licorice tree (yeah we’ve done it, but it doesn’t make us hippies). Swallow and repeat.

C2 Cool & Clean Green Tea Apple Flavor

C2 Cool & Clean Green Tea Apple Flavor

"...and then we harvest our patented green tea apples."

Wait, what? Can you repeat that? I have to admit I wasn't really paying attention to your three-hour dissertation of your apple crop. I love apples, there's no disputing that, but I don't think I have the patience to listen to anyone talk about any food for that long. I mean even if I could ask Jesus anything and he would answer truthfully, I still don't think I would do it if I had to listen to him talk about wine or fish for three hours. It's just not worth the boredom. Sorry, but you were saying something about "tea apples?"

"Why yes, since you're a jerk and didn't listen to me, I will give you a brief summary of it. We grow our apple trees in a semi hydroponic environment. Every three days we replace the water they grow in for green tea. The result is a very plump, juicy apple that has a green tea flavor to it. You see the apple soaks up the essence of the...."

That's enough, friend. I understand what you're saying and I have to say that it's pretty ingenious. It's just too bad that the apples cost $10 each. No one is going to buy those. What's going to happen when no one buys them and you're left with bushels of semi rotten fruit?

"Actually that is a problem that we have already experienced. We decided the best course of action was to juice those tea apples and bottle it. You can buy bottles of it in the gift shop. They are only $2 each."

Well that's nice. I would definitely pay that. Let me go grab one. Wow this is good. It tastes exactly like what you described. You guys definitely added some sugar though. Wait a minute this says it was made in the Philippines. Last time I check we were in Akron, NY! Also it doesn't say anything about actual apples in the ingredients list. You're a liar!

"Yeah, well you're a jerk for not listening to me. Do you think it would actually be possible to make tea apples? I was just making stuff up to see how long it would take you to actually pay attention. This isn't even an apple orchard. It's a pumpkin patch. You're a jerk and idiot!"

Purpose Purple Super Tea

Purpose Purple Super Tea

Grimace somehow broke free from the confines of McDonald land in order to create chaos on our world, you can be damn sure that the exhalted Purple One would make Purpose the official drink of his regime. A purple tea for a purple world, created in his image. Of course Grimace’s favorite musical artist is Prince, I mean who else could it be? In such a perfect world how could he not pass up the chance for the ultimate pun of naming the tea Purple Reign?

Before the big purple guy came to do what he does best in our world most people were unaware that purple tea even existed. Now that it is the only beverage that they are allowed to consume, they are grateful for just how delicious it actually is. It tastes like something in-between a black and a green tea. It has a nice tea bitterness to it. Nestea drinkers would probably hate that, but to me it is that which makes it taste like actual tea. Purpose lightly sweetens it with cane sugar, without going overboard. If a delicious taste wasn’t enough it is also ripe with antioxidants, specifically anthocyanins. You know, you have to keep the Purple leader in tip top health. All jokes aside this is just great. It’s a nice mellow tea that I could enjoy at any time, under any dictatorship.

Pokka Oolong Tea

Pokka Oolong Tea

I drink a lot of unsweetened tea. I mean A LOT of unsweetened tea. I brew it myself and let it chill in the fridge before I enjoy it. The thing is that all of the tea I have thus far brewed has been either black or green tea. It’s been so long since I’ve drank an unsweetened iced oolong tea that I have forgotten exactly how delicious it can be. Oolong has a much earthier taste to it than black and green tea. It’s not the kind of tea that you would drink when you needed instant refreshment, but it is the type you would sip slowly and mull over the flavor as you relax. I will definitely be getting some tea bags to brew some myself.

Pokka Peach Tea

Pokka Peach Tea

This is made from brewed black tea, peach juice and real sugar. It should be great, but unfortunately something has gone wrong. I’m going to guess that it’s too much sugar. Even though it’s flavored with real juice, the peach tastes fake. It tastes like a slightly better version of something you would buy in a gallon jug at the corner store. That’s not good news for anyone.

Pokka Japanese Green Tea

Pokka Japanese Green Tea

Question, tell me what you think about me? I buy my own diamonds and I buy my own rings… wait, that’s not right. Those are Destiny’s Child lyrics. What I meant to say was, exactly how fresh can “Freshly brewed green tea” actually be when it comes in a can? I assume they meant that they put it in a can as soon as they brewed it, but does that really make any difference to anyone? It’s not like this is some special can that brews the tea for you as soon as you crack it open. That would be awesome though. Picture it, the insides of the can instantly boil and then cool down to a nice iced temperature. That’s the kind of stuff you’ll be seeing in the future if I have any say in it.

This tea? Well, it’s green tea alright. Just plain old (well freshly brewed before canning) unsweetened green tea. There’s not much that could change in this if another company put it out. It’s exactly what you would expect, except it wasn’t instantaneously brewed in your hand.

T2U (Tea to You) Green Tea Pomegranate

T2U (Tea to You) Green Tea Pomegranate

A couple things. First, we were all very busy this weekend. Jay has been on tour with Cheap Girls and hanging with some other friends in and around, Baltimore, Philly, New York, and beyond. I spent all weekend riding a motorcycle in a basic riding course. Derek has opened a store and is dealing with that. We were very busy. From Jay and I, we're sorry that we didn't get to do any reviews.

Second, and this is a doozy: buy this tea. I'm telling you. I saw it at some small Asian market with my dogg (note the double "G") Jay. I think Jay was looking around for carp juice or shark drink or something to hopefully make me throw up. Notice a pattern? He's always trying to make me throw up. We'll get there, buddy. We'll get there. This tea, which came out of nowhere, is way too good to be stuck in such limited quantities on a dusty shelf in some suburban Asian market. This trumps most big brand iced tea by far. Good natural tea taste and a good natural pomegranate taste. These guys nailed it.

South Korea, you've given me years of Tae-Kwon-Do and now you've given me this. I hope that this review can bring you the income needed to build that new bridge or skyscraper you've always wanted.
