#1 You thought it was gross at the very first sip.
Yeah, it doesn't exactly taste that good when you first try it. You were so excited to test out this awesome drink everyone has been raving about, but as soon as you poured it from your loose leaf tea pot and took that first sip, you went EWWW!
#2 So you swamped it with milk and sugar.
Maybe it will taste better if you can't taste it at all? The typical milk and sugar dose happened to all of us novice drinkers as we tried to forget the flavour we just ingested. Luckily, over time, you begin to actually like
the strong, rich brew.

Your cupboard becomes a treasure trove of Earl Greys, Lemon and Gingers, Passion Fruits and Peach Apricots. You can't stop and you won't stop! You're a total green tea snob!
