GTS Watermelon Kombucha



Earl Grey is checking out my new flavor.


It was a hot day when I was in the grocery store and saw Watermelon Kombucha.  I thought I would give it a try.  I have to say I really liked it.  It was refreshing and had some notes of cherry and lime in it.

It was unique and I have to say I enjoyed it.  Not a flavor I would want on a regular basis, but on a hot day it hit the spot!

BOH, teh tarik Ginger





I discovered BOH when I was in Malaysia last year.  I love the pre-made/instant tea that you just add to hot water.  This one has ginger in it and I love that taste. It also has powered milk so there is a creaminess to it that I really enjoy.  The only draw back to this particular kind is there is stevia in it and I can taste it.  It's not as strong as in some tea, so I am still enjoying it.

When I ordered this it came right from Malaysia.  I enjoyed getting it direct from them.  I am not sure if you can buy it anywhere in the states or not.  I have not seen it anyway.

This package was actually lost in the mail and I was refunded for my order.  It took over 2 months to arrive, but getting it for free was worth it.  It was a nice surprise when it did show up - since I was not expecting it at all.


"By combining Malaysia´s favourite national drink “teh tarik” with the warming effects of ginger, BOH has created a unique, spicy instant tea. This BOH instant tea is named “kurang manis”, which means “less sweet”, as traditional Teh Tarik can be very sweet. Instructions: Just empty the contents of one sachet into a mug.

Fun TEA items at World Market



I love going to World Market.  I can always find the funniest new things there.  I enjoy looking for unique tea items.



I found this fun chocolate with tea in it.  It is really good and I really enjoyed that it was on sale too.  There is green tea in this chocolate, but I was not able to taste it.  But, it felt healthier knowing it was in there.  They say dark chocolate is good for you.  I know I enjoy it!!





I also picked up at bottle of kombucha.  I like Wonder Drink, it is from the Portland OR area.  I first had it while visiting my sister out in the Portland area.

This Asian Pear kombucha has really nice flavors.



okay, I tried these and they were not good.  I ended up just eating one and throwing the rest away.  It was like eating rubber. 






I was excited to find these.  Normally $3 something, on sale for $1.99 with 55% off, it made them.62!!!  The Guava one is really sweet for me. But, I enjoy the Pineapple Mint one.  I did a blog about this tea, that you can read more about this tea there.
