Honey Citron Tea

After swap meet yesterday and after eating at Sam and Syd's me and my sisters dropped by Queen's Super Market in Kalihi just for a quick look.

This "Honey Citron Tea" caught my eye and I kept going back to it. It sure didn't look like tea. The directions said put 3 - 4 teaspoon into a glass of cold or hot water. Stir and serve.  It also said "Feel the exotic taste by serving with bread."  I was so curious, but was reluctant to buy it because it was $7.99!!  And what if it's junk??!

I finally couldn't take the suspense and just bought it.  I decided to try it as soon as I got home.IMG_5895

It's delicious cold . . .  kinda like made from Japanese yuzu mitsu.  Doesn't taste like tea at all.  In fact, there's no tea in the ingredients.  Wonder why they call it that.   I still have yet to "feel the exotic flavor on bread".

Here are just a few shots from inside of the store.

Sweetie didn't want the plant she bought at the swap meet to roast in the car so it came marketing with us.  It also went to lunch with us! Hahaha!!
