Brilliantly refreshing today!

I always wonder about this tea because I don’t really care for mint teas (I have to be in the mood for hot mint), but also because Snow Bunny is a slang term that has many meanings, mostly derogatory.

Peggy, same…I always get turned off when I see mildly sexist and racist things on tea websites…sigh. Their loss. The worst is if it’s a company who’s tea I enjoy.

I’m not put off by it as much as they should probably research the names first a little before they market it. Maybe they haven’t heard of Google? :-)

Haha, actually “Snow Bunny” didn’t ding my over-sensitive no-sense-of-humor feminist radar until you mentioned it. I was thinking more along the lines of a company that was using the words “yo” and “dawg” when describing a fruit tea that tastes like “red kool aid”, and another that was trying to be macho and funny, but just came off as offensive to me…>;[
