This truly American mixture is a by-product of the space-race era, when everything became “instant” including our beverages.

While very tasty and suitable as an inexpensive gift you give that cousin you’re not fond of four months late for her fiftieth birthday, it’s not the best for making a good cuppa tea of an afternoon.

Still, in a pinch, its speed and flavor will launch you into orbit as it does have a nice and very unique flavor.
