Aerosol 'tea in a can' ruins the experience for tea-baggers everywhere
The aptly titled ‘No More Tea Bags’ has been introduced to the shelves of supermarkets and tea lovers on Twitter can’t handle it.
This is just wrong. Same ban should be placed on this as the so-called 'legal high'. It has no place in civilisation https://t.co/1zAfrvVWz8— Jim Bond (@thebestbond) September 8, 2016
According to the founding company Yum Cha Drinks, the product is “properly brewed better tasting tea” despite coming in a squirty spray form.
Launched at a trade fair in England during the summer, the aerosol tea is more “convenient,” according to manufacturer Guy Woodall who told Scottish Grocer magazine the new “technology” would produce a better taste.
“The convenience of not having to sit around and wait for your tea to brew is a major USP, but the technology we’ve used enables us to produce a tea with what we believe is a far superior taste,” Woodall said.
However much Yum Cha have tried to promote the bagless tea, other Twitter users took it really badly.

It’s fair to say people aren’t ready for such advanced technology just yet.
