Taster’s Review: I’m not big on alcoholic drinks.  In fact, I can’t tell you when the last time was that I last had a drink but if I were to guess, I’d say it’s been several months and that would have been one drink and I probably didn’t even finish it.  I’m just not big on alcohol, I much prefer tea.  I’m drunk on tea.
