Best Caffeine Fix

Dunkin' Donuts brewed ice tea is the best. If you drink iced tea, trust me - a lifelong tea drinker - on this one.

Seasonal fruits/vegetables make sense, but in Maine certain drinks are declared "seasonal" and not available for months; significant dread that will happen. With 8 Dunkin' Donuts in my town (pop. 18,000) -- hope at least one knows there's dedicated customer who doesn't want to be "seasoned" out of iced tea.

I wonder if association activities offered only certain times of the year may have interst other times too? Do we limit timing for no particular reason?

Top 6 Reasons Not to Drink Tea

1- The chemicals used to remove caffeine from tea are carcinogenic as there is no swiss water method as with coffee.

2- The caffeine in tea takes twice as long to eliminate from the body.

3- Depletes the adrenal glands just like coffee

4- Decreases melatonin production = sleep disorders like insomnia

5- Caffeine acts as a diuretic (by the way, caffeine is a strong diuretic, which depletes the body of certain vitamins and minerals, such as “C”, folic acid, calcium, magnesium, and potassium

6- All teas contain flouride. Flouride is accumulative toxin. Only 50% of this poison is excreted from the body per day. The other half stays and accumulates, particualry in the brain & bones. Water contains lead & aluminium. Flouride attaches to lead & aluminum ions and heightens accumulation and increases these toxins metals to the brain. Aluminum flouride showed capacity to damage brain and kidneys in lab rats

Mr. Anonymous has no idea how healthy tea is. The only reason I ever drink coffee is when I'm sick and don't feel like sleeping or I have a lot of studying to do and my mind's foggy.

Personally, I never heard of a drink being "seasonal". Even lemonade can be year-round on account of the soft-drink forms.

Try not to worry. Just drink up and enjoy your tea. If it gets branded as seasonal, just send a letter to your politicians with an enclosed tea bag and ask them why its seasonal when all it takes is dunking a bag of dried and crumbled leaves into a cup of hot water.
