Backpacking friendly individual serving packs of instant green tea – what a concept. The buzz on green tea is that it’s “good for you.” It has antioxidants that are more potent than vitamin C. TeaTech suggests XtraGreen instant tea as an alternative to your daily serving of orange juice. I don’t know about that, but I loved the stuff. It is sweetened with sucralose (Splenda brand), and I just kept chugging it down throughout the OR show. Definitely better than any green tea I’ve ever had. TeaTech has a patent pending process they claim “is the most efficient way to extract the naturally-occurring health nutrients found in fresh green tea leaves.” The tea comes in single serving “sticks” that are added to 16 ounces of water.
