Look, up to a point, there is no problem with dumb people choosing to dunk chemically enhanced potpourri in hot water and call it "tea," so long as those beverage products do not crowd out the availability of actual tea for people who want to drink tea. But this is way past that point. This is not mere bad taste, but a crime against the very ideas of tea and food and human civilization. It is a set of gustatory pretensions related only by the fact of their pretentiousness—"gourmet" salted caramel, "ethnically authentic" mate, "sophisticated" tea—dehydrated and blended together for suckers. It is to "drinking tea" as wringing out a bar towel into a glass is to "having a cocktail," only it is proud of itself for existing. If you desire this product you are sick and dangerous.
