Do you remember lying in bed With your covers pulled up over your head? Radio playin' so no one can see We need change, we need it fast Before rock's just part of the past 'Cause lately it all sounds the same to me Oh oh oh oh, oh oh
When the temperatures go past 90 degrees and there isn't a pool, ocean or lake in sight. There is nothing more refreshing and cooling to me than drinking Japanese, cold green tea.
I can't remember if it was a trip to Hawaii or Japan that I tried this brand of unsweetened, iced green tea. But instantly, I became a convert and ever since have had difficulty finding it on the mainland.
Then I found this version by ITO EN on the mainland. These are very good but not the same.
The moment I arrive in Kauai, my first stop is Costco, where I buy a case of this wonderful beverage. If I am truly lucky, there will be this seasonal version.
I have been known to pack the last few bottles in my suitcase to take home. Where they live in my pantry, for those first scorching hot days of summer. After drinking the last drop of tea in the last bottle, I start counting the days until our next trip to the Garden Island (Kauai).
