So today Second Cup was having a special. If you came in and mentioned a “tea offer”, you could get two cups of their “new” “loose leaf” teas in “silken pyramid teabags”. I was facing a long day at work alone, so I picked up two larges for $2.00. Why not, eh?
Oh blegh. Terrible. Almost as bad as the chai I had from them later. I only let it steep for 2-3 minutes, it was somehow weak and overly bitter. I don’t even know. It tasted like cardboard. And today I really needed a good tea. I walked into the office at 9:45 and got a chance to finish my first cup at 2:30 o.O. Busy, busy day. But this was terrible. I will never return to Second Cup for tea. Even McDonald’s does it better, and that’s scary.
