Let me fill you in on the preface of this story.
On my Friday night bowling league, I FINALLY bowled my first 200 (a 203 to be exact). Along with that I earned other awards for my high game, like 50 pins over my average (because my average is only 144) and also a cute little award, a banana split, for picking up two splits in one game.
My boyfriend bowls at the same house at the same time but just on a different league, so he was able to witness my milestone. He and I already had plans to see a movie that night but he promised me that the next day he would take me out to lunch to celebrate.
Now for the heart of the story.
We ended up going to Chili's for lunch the next day as promised. We were so close to the mall that we decided to do some christmas shopping, but before we headed to the mall he wanted to stop by Starbucks to get his coffee fix. While at Starbucks he insisted on buying me something. I refused, but thanks to the long line at Starbucks he had plenty of time to convince me... which he did.
Heh, I ended up getting some "hot green tea." I had never had Tazo tea before so I wasn't sure what to expect. Eventually, I was handed my tea with two little strings hanging out of the side. -le sigh- tea bags. Heh, but the good thing was I was able to note from the tags on the tea bags the exact kind of tea. The tea that I recieved was Zen.
By the time it was cool enough to drink, which seemed like forever, we had already bought a couple of items for christmas exchanges. Nonetheless, when I took a drink... I was amazed!
I had read on one of the boxes of Tazo's Zen that it was a green tea infused with lemon grass and spearmint. I could definitely taste the lemon and the spearmint left a slightly cool after taste in my mouth. I am more of a spearmint fan than a peppermint fan, so I loved it! I loved it so much that the day after that, he and I wanted to do more shopping so I, yes I, insisted we go to Starbucks so I could have some more of the tea. While there I picked up my own box of Zen (yeah, it's bagged but I can deal with it for now).
Don't get me wrong, though, Adagio's loose green tea is still awesome in my book... but this Zen stuff rocks my socks!!
