Disappointing tea

Today’s White Ginger Peach Tea is brought to you by The Republic of Tea, some atas tea label I picked up at Whole Foods (possibly my most favourite supermarket) in New York.

Verdict: The fragrance of the peach is natural and subtle enough but the taste is overall synthetic because of the processed flavourings and I can barely taste the white tea.

Sigh, their packaging looked so promising.

    Wait til you go to Trader Joe’s it absolutely ROCKS! It proves you don’t have to be rich to be organic/environmentally-friendly! I acty detest Whole Foods now cos’ it’s become just another brand (along with VW Jetta, lululemon) for yuppie-types to latch onto to make themselves look cool.

    Trader Joe’s huh? Ok will check that out next time I’m there. Not familiar with the supermarket scene – guess was just way too easily impressed with robot voice that tells you which counter to go to 😛

    Hee hee well I used to LOVE Whole Foods when it was my only choice. Their whole image packaging just sucks you in and their bite-sized brownies are blardy yumz though the last time I had them they weren’t as good. Anyway, yea it’s a nice supermarket but just wayyy overpriced and a lot of their stuff isn’t too yummy either.
