I found this super-old-looking teabag at the hostel associated with Providence Alaska Medical Center in Anchorage and thought I’d try it just so I could rate it.
It just tasted like really old paper. I knew that, if I drank the whole cup, I’d either vomit or get heartburn. There really wasn’t even a reddish color to the bag contents. It looked like some kind of yellowish leaf, though, so I don’t know what exactly it consisted of. It just was like paper. Yes, I have eaten my fair share of paper — I also enjoy eating toothpicks. However, I couldn’t stomach this.
It really looked old, though. Like, from the 70’s old. I blame my youth for such a bad experience (but at least I’m not looking at it anymore and wondering).
