Are Tea Drinkers Readers?

See these tea boxes? They’re from my cupboard, which has many more boxes than this. I was having a cup of the Roasted Dandelion Spice DeTox (yellow box pictured) recently and it dawned on me that there is a lot to read on tea boxes. A lot.

Not only do the boxes show the ingredients, there’s typically a story about the company or the tea bags or tips about doing yoga or fun facts. Even the tags on the tea bags are opportunities for tea companies to share words. The Roasted Dandelion Spice DeTox tea bags have inspirational sayings on the tags.

It’s almost as though tea companies have figured out that tea drinkers are readers or something.
