    I have just been made aware of the existence of 'No More Tea Bags', or tea in a spray can. As something of a tea connoisseur, I'm still trying to process this information. :indiff:

    The proof of the tea is in the drinking, I guess, and I'll try anything once. But has anyone else seen/tried this stuff? Or if not, what are your immediate reactions? Innovation, or a step too far?

    But why though? Why are they making it like we live in Wall-E times? These Air Pods and spray can tea...we are going backwards people!

    Their main selling point seems to be 'less messy tea bags', but from an environmental point of view, surely the cans produce more waste than a few biodegradable bags (even less if it's loose leaf)?

    Greater control over strength might be good, but I've gotten that down to a fine art over the years anyway.

    So you spray it into boiling water? Honestly, it seems pretty strange, like a rejected Dragon's Den pitch...

    That being said, I'm a coffee person...maybe spray can coffee :curious:

    Seen it but it was like five quid so I didn't bother buying it lol. It's going to need to taste really good or else it'll fall flat on it's face for making a solution to a problem that doesn't exist. Quite a large percentage of the tea market tend to have an absolute firm favourite brand of tea bags and I don't see those customers moving to aerosol tea, especially with the £5 price tag.

    The price is the main turnoff for me as well. I'm curious enough to try it once, but I could get some really great tea from Adagio for £5 that would almost certainly give me more than 20 cups.
