Only women are equipped to cope with the sheer disappointment of herbal tea.

"Mmm, what a delicious-smelling beverage," says the brain. "I'll wager that makes for an unbelievably rich taste sensa—oh. Oh."

Men, at this point, will usually give up and try and wash away the taste with something more pleasant, like Dettol, but women plough doggedly on, slurping away at the stuff and protesting unconvincingly that a drink really only needs to SMELL great.

Allow me to refer you to the middle section of this post.

The exception being liquorice tea. Which is made with black pepper and tastes incredible.

> it never tastes as good as it smells

You are indeed a rarity, and I congratulate you on your rebellion against this weird olfactory conspiracy.

Hmm, let's see.

Drinks Guinness.
Won't drink fruit tea.

I am clearly a bloke.

It's true, with all the clever packaging, all covered in fruits - which are tasty - it's easy to assume that they taste of something. But the truth is far more sinister.

Kathy Burke ranted about herbal teas expertly on Room 101 a couple of years back, and I agreed with her entirely.
