I am under a lot of stress these days for various reasons resulting in my pacing more than is necessary and consuming massive amounts of chocolate. Today as the evening progressed I found that I couldn’t sleep and couldn’t study so I decided to clean the kitchen. As I putter about I see a free sample of tazo chamomile tea. Tazo and its attempt to be all “new age” despite the fact that it and I both know that it is infact nothing but a big heartless corporation posing annoys me. As a tea aficiando I do not smile fondly upon people who attempt silly slogans to pimp tea.
Case in point: As I debate whether I should try it I read the back which promises me that a single cup of Tazo has been known to have the same effect as sitting for 45 minutes in a mountain meadow on a sunny day with your shoes off. You know you’ve been in law school too long when before you even shudder at the cheesiness of it all you search for fine print disclaiming such a stupid sentence or at least providing citations towards quantitative proof verifying their bold assertion. Still, it was free tea, and though somewhat of a tea snob, I am desi and free chai is free chai no matter how silly the producers of said chai may be.
Alas I wish I had not brewed as long as I had for as I waited I had the misforune of seeing the very bottom lines on the bag:
Yes, you read correctly, it encourages you to contact them if you have comments, observations or simply want a bit of human contact. I will not even address the fact that they ask you to allow two weeks of this lifetime for a response. Do people actually write for simply a bit of human contact?
Wassup? N2M here! Its totally cool to get some human contact. I like cats, chips, and coco puffs. I also like bubble gum but only if its extra bubblilicious. Anywayz, write back soon!
Love ya lots!!
Seriously Tazo, it’s not as cute as you think. Though grudgingly I admit their chamomile tea is pretty good. But am I willing to give up my self respect to drink more? Jury’s out on this one.
