I have to tell you that I was quite hesitant to try adding one of these little pixies to a glass of water (or bottle of water if you’re on the go!) – so I stashed it away and forgot about it. But now that I’m trying it I wish I would have tried it way back when I first received it from my SororiTEA Sister!
It’s actually very tasty – not to mention very good for you!
This particular packet is Orange Cream flavored and is very true to the flavor. It tastes like a creamsicle. My first impression of it was “Tang” – you know, the breakfast drink mix? But it has a creamy backdrop to it that is much more like a liquefied dessert confection!
I don’t taste a lot of green tea to this… and my thinking is that this was made more for the person who “doesn’t like green tea but still wants the health benefits from it” than the tea enthusiast.
That being said, I still am quite enjoying this – it has a delicious, refreshing taste to it. It does have a bit of that “diet drink” kind of taste, and I don’t usually like diet drinks… but, if they tasted like this I’d be more inclined to like them!
And this doesn’t have aspartame in it – which is a big bonus in my book because I can’t consume aspartame. It has sweetener in it (Sucralose… which is basically splenda), so you don’t need to add anything else to it, and really, it is very sweet and strongly flavored – so I recommend using at least 12 ounces (or even a little more – it’s got a real strong flavor at 12 ounces!)
I also recommend giving it a really good stir (or shake, if you’re adding it to your water bottle) and continue to stir or shake as you drink it, because I did experience some settling of the powder at the bottom of my glass. I used my frother and it gave it a foamy froth on top.
