YOU ARE NOT THE BOSS OF ME!

Would it help if I said I appreciated the business ethic of the Lipton corporation for using tea remnants that would otherwise be thrown away, and producing an affordable product for the masses that ultimately acts as a means of introducing people to the world of tea, even if I'm not a personal fan of their products?

Well, he's not entirely wrong, he's just, like, misleading.

He's basically bombarding the place with a buncha "no duh" statements, like it's a bomb-diggity revelation, yo. Anyone who's actually had tea knows it makes you pee, and anyone who doesn't realize that drinking (or eating) too much of most things (or even "too much" in general) is bad for you isn't very perceptive.

Look: coffee, booze, soda, and even daggum water will have similarly negative (yet different) effects in excessive consumption. The ultimate truth? Just be moderate, man. But that's just, like, my opinion.

Couldn't have said it better myself, although probably more long-winded and with a superiority complex judging the inferior palate of a reptile that doesn't understand or respect the second most consumed beverage in the world after water.

But as I said, I was watching a movie with my wife. It turns out The Wedding Ringer was a lot funnier than I expected, although the chase scene after the bachelor party was a bit out of place with the theme.

I need to upgrade my Sinensis supply, for I'm almost out of all but Ceylon black, which while delicious is a bit mundane.

My wife brought some Cinnamon Peppermint herbal that is ridiculously strong that I may have to claim via eminent domain.

So, I've just come back from the store where I saw two weird Lipton abominations: blueberry cupcake tea and strawberry cupcake green tea.

Wrong as it sounds, I was somewhat curious as to what they were like, but being sort of reluctant to buy bagged tea as it is* I reminded myself not to buy random stuff that I don't even expect to like.

Seriously though, cupcake flavoured tea? Is this really an actual thing that's a thing, or is it just Lipton being weird?

Meanwhile, this Pickwick vanilla chai is pretty nice.

*I'm thinking of switching to buying more quality loose leaf teas and move most of the bagged ones that I've already amassed at home over to my tiny stash here at the boyfriend's.


I think the point is that it's the same blueberry flavor you get in blueberry cupcakes, with the other additions you get in the cupcakes, rather than just blueberry flavor.

Currently drinking a Goji-Acai green tea. Because I like the fruit flavors, not for any super-fruit health reasons. :)


I do tend to wonder if mere infusions of said superfruits would even be sufficient concentration to be of benefit, anyways.

Cupcake tea does sound pretty gross. I had friends grab cheesecake flavored Italian ice from a Rita's once and I nearly gave a spit take at the audacity. Tea seems even more out of place...

On the other hand, tea WITH cupcakes sounds wonderful. I prefer ginger snaps, but really most deserts go well with a not-to-sweetened tea.

The Winn Dixie in my neighborhood is advertising they're giving away a 24 pack of coke with any sheet cake purchased, and all I could think was "Who drinks coke with dessert?! That's like instant diabetes!"

Tea is made for desserts.

Bro! I could totally go for some f%*#ing sheet cake right about now!!

In Australia we go for Yum Cha loosely translated from the Cantonese is Drink tea. I think you call it Dim Sum in the U.S. which is the food you eat while you are drinking the tea.

Nothing better than crispy duck and green tea.


According to the package there were actual berries in there, and then they used aromas to emulate the cupcake flavour. I'm not even kidding.

I found a thread about it on reddit.

someone on reddit wrote:
I've actually tried that! My friend and I bought it as a joke because we thought it sounded really rather gross. It wasn't really gross as such, but it's not good either. It has a weird buttery kind of aftertaste but otherwise tastes just like normal strawberry tea.


Red Bull - Dude, she's totally askin' for it bro. Look at her, sittin' there, just covered with icing. It literally says "Eat Me" in the frosting.

8th Dwarf - I'm a vegetarian, so I would probably go with something besides duck. Fortunately, most Chinese food has great veggie alternatives. I never had duck before I quit eating meat, but I heard it was like really greasy chicken. (Don't worry. I'm not a converter vegetarian. I did it for personal health reasons, and still remember just how delicious meat is, so I do not judge others who throw down on the flesh.) Oddly enough, I've never actually had Dim Sum.

Sencha - Seeing as how it's Lipton, I think we'll have to ask our friend Sweet Tea to try it and tell us how it compares to regular blends, as he already likes Lipton, and would be the best judge of how it compares.

Cinco De Mayo at Moe's right now. Blending their unsweetened green and sweet black tea gives a pretty decent blend of sweetness. It's no fresh made cup, but I come here every year for Cinco to add to my t-shirt collection and the size of my belly with a ridiculously disproportionately large tofu burrito. I do like they have non soda options, and actually carry more than one type of unsweetened tea.

Mmmmeh. I've been pretty clear, I think, but just in case: I get Lipton for the bagged stuff to make glorious, glorious southern-style sweet tea.

I don't do no fancy-schmancy other teas. No need.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

You don't make sweet teas out of the flavored blends? Even my southern culture buddies throw down on some sweet green, or sweet herbal...And what Sencha was describing was just a flavored black tea, so not so far from your original fare.

Southern style?

Is that like Sun tea?

G!~&~~n regional slang, Smurfs me every time!


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I think sun tea is a brewing method, which can, but doesn't have to encompass southern sweet tea.

Southern Style Sweet Tea is when you make your tea with a supersaturation of sugar to water ratio. Usually you have to add the sugar to the pitcher while it's still hot to get all the sugar to absorb. We're talking dang near syrup tea. It's extremely popular in the south of the USA, especially in the belt from Georgia-Louisiana to as far north as Tennessee. When someone says "sweet tea" in that area, it's usually what they mean, as opposed to most other regions where sweetened tea usually means enough to cut the bitter and maybe give it a little sweetness.

Usually it's consumed in large quantities, made by the pitcher full, and because the primary flavor is the sweetness and not the tea, usually using cheaper teas. Lipton and Luzinane are both popular for it.

It isn't my particular cup of tea (pun intended), but admittedly it was all I drank as a kid in the category of tea, unless I was sick and my mom made me drink hot tea with lemon and honey for a sore throat. So while categorically I do feel it's a lower quality, it's kind of like training wheels for burgeoning tea drinkers IMO.

But yes, Sweet Tea Gamer, there's nothing wrong with enjoying it as an adult. You get cultural relevatism on your side. I do sometimes have a homemade pitcher to replace soda when I am in a mega sweet mood, or with pizza or something of the like. Usually I use whatever I happen to have lying around the house that I haven't drank in forever. My last batch was a blend of blueberry, peppermint and black tea. Surprisingly not as bad as you'd think.

Interestingly, I've noticed that Arizona iced tea and sweet tea contain the same amount of calories from sugar.

I believe of all their non-diet blends that the black and white has the least (and is one of the tastier blends).

So let me just ask this straight up...

Did anyone else first get into drinking tea by ordering "Tea, Earl Grey, hot"? Or was that just me?

I didn't get into tea because of Picard, but it is one of the reasons he's better than Kirk.

I got into it because I had an eastern phase in high school, long long ago. Also used to do a bit of yoga and meditation, but the tea was all that stuck. That was back when all the info about antioxidants and tea preventing cancer and stuff was just becoming common knowledge in the 90s.

Well, the yoga did for quite a while, but a lack of practice leads to a considerable drop in abilities in a very short time, which leads to a lack of desire to continue. My overall fitness declined quite a bit in 2013-2014, but it's been on a slow upturn of late. I'll get back into it again. (Intense exercise is difficult due to asthma, so yoga actually was a blessing when I learned about it a bit more than a decade ago).

Terry Pratchett cemented my love of tea, as he gave me a healthy respect for the Brits, who in turn are fans of the darker teas. RIP Sir Terry.

Are we talking histearies now? eh... ok that was pretty terrible. I came into tea as a result of needing to change my lifestyle and partly because of my upbringing.

In my twenties I pretty much drank coffee all day, alcohol all night, and smoked from sun up to sun down. Bad diet on top of all that began to catch up to me eventually as I aged. I developed some pretty bad acid reflux as you can imagine, so the first thing that went was coffee, followed shortly by cigarettes. Then I cleaned up my diet mostly and so now I just enjoy massive amounts of alcohol and seem to be doing swell. I eventually gave up soda too. I was getting tired of drinking only water all the time. That is when I decided to try and dive into tea.

I figured that as big a thing as tea was (outside of yankee country anyway) there had to be something I was missing. Growing up my parents always reached for the most convenient, cheapest, rubbish of food and drink you can imagine. (God I am thinking seriously about throwing up right now thinking about Velveeta or kraft singles and how my mother used them constantly....) My family just didn't have a taste for the finer things which was kind of what propelled me into, not just enjoying, but demanding quality. Anyways as a child my Gran would have celestial seasons "throat coat" (God it was like drinking potpourri)or lipton so I just assumed tea sucked.

Eventually I got out and found the few best kept tea secrets of the twin cities. I learned there was a whole world of delectable loose leaf tea out there. The best part is there is no effect on my reflux. In fact, since switching from coffee and soda to tea and water, I feel ten years younger. Though I have been down south for travel and find sweet tea to be pretty gross because it is loaded with sugar. Most store bought iced teas are the same. I prefer black tea over most other varieties because it does well alone without needing supplements. Though when I do add to my tea, I prefer to keep it real with lemon and/or honey.

That is my teastory. double eh.... still terrible.

Mine's pretty simple - my family used to have a big saturday-breakfast together with heated-in-the-oven homemade bread from grandma, and to drink: tea (or cocoa, which is almost as good). One day I tried tea, and I liked it.

I'm from Silicon Valley and grew up with oriental food, so I've never been a stranger to tea (I also got to be first exposed to pearl tea at the 2001 San Jose Tet Festival, years before the altogether-too-hip "boba" chains became a thing). I've always been a voracious consumer of whatever bottled teas were available to me (starting with Sobe, and now Honest Tea and the Ito En teas). More recently, I have, as mentioned before, discovered a fantastic British high tea outfit near where I live now (which otherwise can't hold a candle to the Bay Area by any stretch of the imagination), and go there pretty much every month now.

I order most of my tea from Upton (free plug!). Their catalog has long included a series on tea history, which is currently in a long digression on the America's Cup races, since Sir Thomas Lipton made a number of challenges for the Cup, at least partly as a PR move for his tea.

Currently drinking Gen-mai cha, which is a Japanese green tea with toasted rice in it to give it something of a nutty flavor.

I am a Britlandshirer, so tea is a fundamental part of my culture & upbringing. Not drinking the stuff would mark me as a) weird and b) probably foreign. I am weird, of course, but tea-drinking helps to camouflage that.

Gen-mai cha is nice. Must try to get hold of some. There's the roasted stuff as well - can't remember what that's called, though...

Actually, the gen mai cha might be roasted, not toasted.

My wife has family in Manchester and roundabout that area. I look forward to visiting one day, and not just because I want to see if my British accent is passable in native lands (I have literally fooled customers at various jobs with it many a time), but also for the distinct purpose of visiting many a British tea spot.

Although I do hear tea as a British habit is only a little older than my homeland's existence (read - that time we whooped you folks like it wasn't even fair with like two hemped out farmers for every nine soldiers you brought - 'MURICA!). The real place to see the homeland of tea is China.

(I think that tangent deserves my FPM alias. He doesn't get to play often enough.)

(Please read my earlier comment about respecting the UK, but as an American it is a little known law that we must, by threat of imprisonment, bring up the revolutionary war and the absurd beating you received any time we speak to a Brit. Sorry. Policy. Otherwise I like you folks, even though your monarchy is a glorified biologically inherited party planning committee that serves no actual purpose and wastes a monumental amount of taxpayer money considering you have a prime minister and parliament and all. But who am I to talk? We have a government that thinks charging people who can't afford insurance a yearly fee for not having insurance is a good idea.)

I, on the other hand, should go to Japan. And also be terrible, even though I'd try my best. 'Cause: YATTA!

You mean houjicha? (I should totally know this, but I forgot and couldn't for the life of me recall its name, so I had to resort to google to find the name...)

I bought a package once, but I wasn't much impressed. I'd rather just have sencha, its non-roasted cousin.

I haven't tried genmaicha yet, but maybe I should. If it turns out I'm not a fan, then at least it was cheap. And if I do like it, then as an added bonus it's still cheap. Win-win, really.

Evidence buried. Evidence of what? Never you mind.

I have to say, two of my minions are on the fast track to promotion. Sweet Tea and Sencha, your frequency of post and response to the call to action are admirable. As well, your rebelliousness embodying our people's chaotic ways, Sweet Tea, and your decisive knowledge and snobbery of the holy plant, Sencha, are both bringing pride to me. My first recruit, black tea, is catching up now that he found the site, and loose leaf isn't doing shabby at all, but you two are falling behind on the others' activity level.

Rb&c, I don't even know what you're up to. Seriously. You confuse me...but you make me laugh.

theblackcoffeegamer is our new sworn enemy, for he has rejected the fold. Treat him as you would one who pours out the holy drink while it is yet fresh and without the bag having been left in too long.

Corporate?! Those tie wearing douchebags with insistence on shaved faces and short hair in an anachronistic throwback to a red scare 50s culture that is made debunk through the fall of the Soviet Union as well as our socialist shift in economic policy?!

Ha. That's funny. I'm actually quite outspoken IRL about the evils of corporate America...and it's not even the money related stuff.

Also, ties are symbolic leashes, pure and simple. They serve no actual purpose (as if covering buttons is any sign of professionalism), but do very adequately convey the symbolism I mentioned.

Just once I want someone to explain to me how "professional appearance" beyond hygiene in any way improves product quality, customer service, or any other real reflection of professionalism beyond a fear of deviation from established social norms that aren't even accurate for the last twenty years.

I appreciate your kind comments about our little fraternal disagreement and am glad to have been of service. Winning all the time gets boring, it's always nice to have an excuse to make war on the French and we only really wanted Canada and Belize anyway.

Besides, most of the troops were German, as was the monarch, so they were easily distracted by the promise of extra gherkins and shiny boots and didn't give the job their full attention.

Bigelow vanilla black for now, and I'm almost out, dangit.

I like Bigelow. Definitely one of the better bag blends, and actually an American company, which suprised me. My wife told me the other day that she wanted to tour the factory on our next vacation, to which I had to respond by ravishing her in an immediate and graphic way. I need not have shared that with you, but I think you get the point that I was proud of her. She certainly did. *eye waggle double entendre* (Leave me alone. I'm still channeling Americanisms. You don't just switch that off.)

I'm spending so much time goofing off with avatars of late, especially over on Tacticslion's thread as Strategytiger. I may be contributing to the overcoming of my own thread. It's been fun, though.

Geeze, I remember when I used to talk about Pathfinder on these boards, or make eloeloquent arguments about moral issues...now I talk about tea, minions, and goof off.

This thread may be the death of my credibility... Yet, I wouldn't trade anything. Off to brew my last mug of vanilla black Bigelow.

Ahh, tomorrow is the day where I shall meet an old friend of mine that I haven't seen for two years, and to celebrate we're going to Perch's Tea Room in Copenhagen, a place where you get to pay 85 kr. (~$13) for one pot of tea. And so, I am currently looking at their website, wondering which amazing teas I should buy from their shop downstairs while we are there.
I'm thinking raspberry oolong, dark chocolate, bailey cream, maybe some coconut tea... Well, this looks awfully sweet all of it, doesn't it? Ohh, almond tea, that looks nice as well. And maybe I should take this opportunity to actually try the aforementioned genmaicha...

The McDonald's nearby here would have good sweet tea but they're always out.


There are two nearby McD's. One is always well stocked, good service, and great tea.
One is always out of things (but often enough doesn't tell you until after you've paid), and has, when its present, mediocre tea (not bad - definitely enjoyable - but not good either).

Something seems wrong with this.


Hey. Hey, bo- - erg, that kobold's annoying speech mannerisms are, like, catchy - guy who's thread this is.

Don't you hate kobolds or summat? They seem to be multiplying or something. Just thought you'd want to know, or whatever.

Appreciate the bump, Sweet Tea. Yes, it seems like there's an annoying goblin giving him lots of activity. Both inferior sets of creatures (although at least goblins make excellent mascots).

Seriously, the little SCALED bugger isn't even responding - it seems to be automatically progressing!

So, you two like McDonald's sweet tea? See, that's just too sweet for me. It just tastes like so much sugar I can't even taste the tea flavor. I could take that and give it a 50/50 blend with unsweetened.

Now Publix, otoh, has some boss tea in their deli that is very sweet but strong enough where you can taste the tea itself. Sweet is great, their green is awesome, and their flavored ones have a good kick of fruit to them, especially raspberry (but the peach one is nice, too). They started doing a limited edition fruit green I need to grab a half gallon of and give a shot. I don't like their diet blends, but that's because I hate splenda.
