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.

  1. Restaurants and cafes that pride themselves on coffee typically only carry tea for folks who a) don’t like coffee and/or b) don’t want caffeine. There’s plenty of caffeine tea here in the supermarket shelves. Just look for Earl Grey, or English Breakfast, or just plain old Liption black tea.

    And of course, there’s no shortage of caffeinated and herbal teas at our own Quail & Thistle Tea Room (http://quailandthistle.com)! Just don’t ask for coffee. ;>
