I know this is everything a serious tea person is supposed to dislike – a bag of green fannings, and not much of them, and (shudder) its Lipton. I know, but I had one bag of this left, and dog gone it this is an enjoyable cup. I don’t have to think. I don’t have to look for subtleties. All I have to do is set back and enjoy my Jolly Rancher Watermelon Stix in a cup. Happy times.

Good for you! Isn’t that the point?!

Yep. As I gain more experience, I hope I never lose the appreciation for the simple pleasures. I want to enjoy each tea for just what it is.

LOL sometimes simple is nice.

I’ll never forget being with the wine maker at Mondavi and us talking about wine snobs…he said he had a favorite wine at home made by Ernest and Julio Gallo. His opinion was “Drink what you like no matter what other people say!”

Azzrian

Exactly!

Tea snobbery really can be taken too far. Sometimes there is just more enjoyment to be found in a cheap bag than in a perfectly brewed cup of super premium grade. It’s all about the circumstances and the associations connected with it. :) Be not ashamed.

I had a Lipton green tea recently that I felt the same about. It was Jasmine and Citrus, I think. I’m too much of a newbie to behave like a snob, but I didn’t have good memories of childhood Lipton orange pekoe oversteeped and iced, so I was really surprised when I liked the newer stuff.
