GreenTeaHP is a proprietary blend of highly concentrated green tea antioxidants that are specific to green tea. It also contains extracts and other ingredients such as açaí, noni juice, pomegranate extract, l-theanine, resveratrol, and bioperine.
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.
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
