We Drink Tea! (Profanity Warning)

Some boys from the UK made a video response to Chris Parnell and Andy Samburg's 'Lazy Sunday' Saturday Night Live short (AKA 'Narnia Rap'). Though the original made me titter--a rarity for SNL these days--I find the parody a smarter, edgier experience.

Or could it just be the assertiveness with which they extol the virtues of weekend tea?

Look out, Tazo - INTI ZEN Teas

I'm feeling loved with Argentinean tea brand Inti Zen's 8-blend sampler; everything from green tea with chamomile flowers and orange peel to a tropical fruit-filled version of Assam Black to, yes, good ol' chai, all in a cute little black box that fits in my shoulder bag. Each artistically-named tea (come on, you have to love a company that calls English Breakfast Illumine) has a distinctive, delicious aroma you can smell even before you open the bag! My favorite so far is the Tea for Tango, a jasmine-infused yerba mate; one of the simpler blends and very refreshing. This is the brand for people who think tea is bland, bitter, or boring--Tazo, watch your back!
