The ultimate in “meh”, Kroger doesn’t even bother to name its tea. Its official title, emblazoned in flowery script on the box, is “Tea Bags”, but that seemed an inappropriate label for Steepster. Fittingly, this nameless tea is also odorless and tasteless. If you steep it to death, stare at it long enough, and concentrate real hard, it’s possible to believe that the beverage in front of you is in fact something other than hot water. I guess I should give it credit for testing my imagination?
Why did I drink this when my tea cabinet is full of other, much more alluring things? I think I had some sort of masochistic drive to see just “how bad” generic tea is. Or maybe I was actually hopeful that this humble-looking tea box might be disguising some exquisite surprise, like in fairytales?
Agh. What a disappointing experience…After that, I think I need a cup of tea.
