Following up last week’s show, Erica takes on the foodiness-ification of one of her favorite beverages- tea! Tune into this episode to hear how companies like Arizona have bastardized the drink so it no longer resembles the flavor of tea! Hear how varieties of tea like oolong and earl gray are related, and why tea flavors vary. Arizona Iced Tea and Snapple are not healthier than soda! If Dunkin Donuts sells it, it can’t be healthy. Make your own tea; listen to Let’s Get Real! This program has been brought to you by Cain Vineyard & Winery. Today’s break music has been provided by SNOWMINE.

“Tea is actually really good for you! It’s filled with lots of antioxidants… but not when it has twenty five grams of sugar and not any actual tea in it.” [11:45]
