Oh yea, now that sounds good...especially with the HOT weather we're having. And William LOVES anything with soy sauce!

Okay, now one more question! Is there a difference in green tea and green tea powder? Are they interchangeable? Or could I process the green tea and use it the same way? The Asian market had had numerous cans of green tea when I looked today, but I wanted to make sure I had the right thing.

Green Tea powder and leaves are 2 different things.
If you use leaves, you won't get the same effect.
the leaves are cheaper, often use as weak tea without cream or sugar.
