I was trying a new iced tea today (Tetley Peach and Orange, very nice) and noted that it contained even more sugar than the Lipton tea I normally drink. After consuming an entire 1.25 litre bottle of it, of course.*
And then I wondered just how sweet they could make it.
The answer is roughly ten times as sweet.
I don't think that even I could drink that. It would be like drinking honey, something I hardly ever do.
And you know how honey never spoils?** Plasmolysis. Makes sense; I was wondering where this magical natural antibiotic effect came from. It's nothing fancy, it just dehydrates the little buggers.
* A 1.25 litre bottle of this from the minimart downstairs from the food court I usually go to costs only slightly more than a 500ml bottle bought in the food court. The only problem is that I then tend to drink the whole thing over the course of the afternoon.

Is somebody's spam engine broken? Or is your own machine filling your comment database with junk?
