Reminder to self: bring non-decaf tea to the US or buy some non-decaf tea as soon as I get there

Posted by jpluimers on 2011/09/10

Most places in the US only get you decaf tea or herbal tea (which is almost entirely unlike tea), but there Aint_Nothing_Like_the_Real_Thing.

I’m not sure why they do that so much, but I don’t drink coffee and hardly any sodas, and still want to fit into the ‘caffeine’ slice of society :)

Besides it is silly to pay the same or extra to get less (like low-fat diary products where you pay to remove fat, but add water and you need to watch the homogenization of the food emulsion).

So I will either bring a bunch of regular Earl Grey tea (almost all tea here in Europe is non-decaf), or quickly find a supermarket that sells some non-decaf Earl Grey tea.


PS:  I do understand that some people can’t handle the caffeine, but only having decaf feels silly to me.
