Peppermint Tea

Oh man. Remind me never to get Peppermint tea again. I got reeled in by the beautifulness of its box and the reputation of the brand (yeah, I've had it before, yeah, I didn't much like it). I should know better! Gahhh!

Has it ever happened to you? You just love the advertising/packaging/overall design so much, you just buy the product?! Even though you don't need it?

For those of you not studying Graphic Design, Marketing, or anything related to this, you might want to read how stores use science to make you buy things you don't need. (It's a link to Cracked.com, and I must warn you that it is a super addictive website!)

Yep. I've had below mediocre tea and whatnot that reeled me in 'cos of the packaging. Whoops..

Peppermint tea's not my favourite, but I like it a bit more when it's got honey in it...

I like peppermint tea. Put in honey and lemon juice to spice it up. Yum. If you still don't like it, just send it my way! ;)
