We went on a road trip this last week, and it was very tiring. It was worth it just to see my son play with the sandy little rocks at the beach, but we are all absolutely exhausted now. The best day of the the trip was nearly done in by some Guava juice that had more in common with Tang than Guavas. I don't know why I drank it, it gave me a terrible headache due to the citric acid that it was no-doubt loaded with. I always make stupid food choices on trips.
This morning I tried Itaru's Green Tea for the first time. It is very green, and that impressed me, most green tea turns yellow after just 10 seconds in hot water. It smelled a little funny, but the taste is incredible. After a cup of that, I felt good as new, and fully recovered from the trip. It has a greater depth of flavor, similar to coffee in it's depth, though nothing like it in flavor. It put me instantly back in Japan, I have never found a tea in America that compared to the everyday green tea in Japan, but this is better. This is even better than the wonderful Green Tea Ice Cream. It's so good for my stress levels and heart palpitations. I'm not doing to well at reducing my stress, but I'm sure I'll work into some strategies and routines soon.
Here's to a week at home! It's good to be home.
