In tonight’s episode – Snapple Is To Tea What BP Is To The Gulf – I get real about what foodiness has done to tea; how, like liquor and coffee, tea was once an acquired taste for adults, and how, also like booze and coffee, tea has been candified and flavorized and diet-ized and infantilized and turned into tea-flavored Kool-Aid; how adding 10 thousand grams of sugar and artificial flavors, colors and sweeteners to tea and packaging it as healthier than soda is like polluting the Gulf with 10 billion tons of oil and then claiming its gone just because you can’t see it anymore; and how, if you’re going to drink real tea buy tea leaves or tea bags and boil it at home like an adult, otherwise go ahead and drink Kool-Aid. You can always say you’re being ironic.

So if you don’t want to drink sh*t and you don’t want to be the kind of person who doesn’t know the difference between real tea and Kool-Aid flavored “tea”, tune in!
