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.

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.

Ice Cool Aloe Vera Peach Juice With Pulp

Ice Cool Aloe Vera Peach Juice With Pulp

Alright, we’re going out into the desert Three Amigos’ style, except we want to be prepared. There will be no empty canteens and certainly none that are filled with sand. I mean the desert I speak of is actually just a local beach, but I want everything absolutely perfect for my YouTube recreation. Okay, everyone give me your canteens. My mom said I’m not allowed to come in the house wearing this “ridiculous” outfit as she put it. So I’ll be filling them up with the hose. Does she not realize that this is the costume of my craft? Does she not know that I was born to reenact every movie Martin Short has ever starred in? Just wait until I’m internet famous, then she’ll let me in the house to fill up my canteens! Well until then, hose water it is! Sorry they look old, they were my grandfathers from The War, I don’t even know what war, so don’t ask. Oh crap, I forgot I had some peach drink in here from when I went camping last summer. It doesn’t smell spoiled, but that’s just weird.

Ugh guys, I don’t know if you want to actually use these. The combination of the hose water, the left over peach juice residue and the aloe I put on my sunburn I got from yesterday’s shoot, this is a weird not-to-great drink. I guess the more you drink the better it gets, but it never really loses it’s metallic hose water taste. Jimmy, that’s racist saying that this taste like an Asian drink! Oh you mean it tastes exactly like an aloe drink you had on your trip to Singapore, except this doesn’t have the chunks that that one had? Well I guess that’s not racist, but I feel sorry that you paid for such a beverage.

Well everyone it looks like Little Neddy is not going to talk about how he filmed a movie about going to war, or mail planes. Let’s move on to Innerspace. I have a cool little capsule I’ve been building in my shed.

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.

Elisha Aerated Water Orange

Elisha Aerated Water Orange

I usually don't care about flavored water, but the unique packaging of this bottle drew me in. It's clear plastic and has a footed bottom like most bottles. But then it is shaped like, and has a top like a can. Weird.

Unlike the packaging, this drink is pretty straightforward. It has very light carbonation and sweetness, which lets the orange flavor really stand out. It's a really light drink, and pretty refreshing. I keep wanting this to be a soda with more carbonation, but sadly it's not. This is precisely why I can't get into flavored water. It doesn't want to be water, but it doesn't want to commit to being a soda. Pick a side!
