Types of Tea

While traveling over the past two days I was forced to buy tea in various airports in Chicago and Syracuse. I was very disappointed that most of the tea available was flavored with what was called "natural flavor." In actuality "natural flavor" is a code word for MSG. The addition of MSG serves two purposes: it makes the tea taste good and it causes addictive behavior, causing customers to feel the need for that particular brand of tea. The fact that you have to search for plain tea is a sad comment on our manipulative economy. Oh, for the fourteenth century again! When tea was tea and corn was corn and pigs were pigs . . .
