Caffeinated Perfection

A brief moment to rave about what become my favorite drink: Whole Foods (nee Bread and Circus) is now carrying a brand of iced tea called "Teas' Tea". They specialize in oriental teas, mainly green tea, served properly: brewed strong and without any sweetener. Indeed, the drink is basically just water, tea and (for no discernable reason, but it doesn't seem to interfere with the flavor) Vitamin C.

It's relatively expensive (almost 2 bucks for 16 ounces), but quite yummy if you appreciate tea. They have a number of varieties: pure green; roasted green; green with barley; oolong; probably one or two others I'm not remembering. All are more genuinely tea-flavored than most American iced teas, and don't have a ton of corn syrup masking the real flavor.

I may well go look for a wholesaler -- this stuff is worth buying in Costco quantities, especially if I can get it cheaper. Having proven that coffee is hard on my stomach, this is a very pleasant way to get just a little caffeine into my day...
