Punny Tea Names

Duane Reade has rebranded, it seems, and with that they've introduced a new line of products under the name "delish". I'm not crazy about that name, but their snack line isn't so bad (the maple leaf cookies are my favorite so far.)

Now they have a few kinds of iced teas. So far I've seen their Green Tea, White Tea (with pear juice, probably the best one), and Earl Grey. They're as good as any bottled iced tea I've had, and even better than some. But I'm not here to review these. I just need to remark on their need to tea-ize a few adjectives on their label:

What's going on with these people? Are they proud of their rhyming abilitea? Do they need to take every opportunitea? Isn't it just an exercise in futilitea? Or is my reaction due to my hypersensitivitea? No diggitea! (for all you 90's kids out there.)

I guess I've complained aplentea. I'm gonna finish the rest of my drink...because I'm thirstea.
