Hi all. I just noticed this was posted over on VF, but not here yet. This will probably piss you off!

Their tea tastes horrible so I never bought it, now I never will. Thanks for the heads up

It's pretty ridiculous that they would do that to try to come up with something to sell tea.

This is exactly like when POM was found to be conducting animal testing with their juices in order to be able to make health claims about the "greatness" of their product. Sad, but this isn't the first time and won't be the last that some company tries to play the system via animal testing just so it can make some boasts about what "good" their product can do for you health-wise.

I just don't get animal testing. Its not like the animal being tested on audibly tells the stupid researcher that its working. We are not mice, rats, etc! How can this ever work???????? We do not have the same animal system, but in the end we are the animals!
