Flavored Black Tea

by Space Samurai » Dec 12th, '07, 02:23

I find this stuff to be the most booring thing possible. Mango peach blueberry acai super pomegranate spice tea = "no thanks" for me. I'm curious what others think.

I barely drink black tea, so flavored is a definite no-no.

If you want fruit flavor that bad, just eat a fruit– don't spoil tea with "natural" flavorings! :twisted:

Oh oh, I remember a poll over a year ago about sweeteners and tea, that got pretty fired up.

Like what you drink and drink what you like, but you won't find flavors in my cuppa.

Ah yes, I didn't mean to sound offensive, my previous comment was made only in jest. Never take what I say too seriously. :)

No offense taken, Scruff!:D

For me flavored teas are a fun occasional indulgence but they have to be a decent tea base to start with and then the flavor should be true to its name.

Aside from the fun factor, they are approachable for tea newbies and a great stepping stone for people trying to get away from coffee and soda as their regular beverages. Helping us draw in new recruits! Muhahahaha! :twisted:

So, what you're saying is that flavored teas are our marijuana? :twisted:
