Drinking tea soothes stress?

Yes, in theory.

I had a hankering for a nice relaxing cup of tea recently. So I went to our kitchen area here at work, and selected a soothing green tea. I read the back of the package. "Gently soothing" it says. "Calm yourself" it says. Great, that's exactly what I'm looking for.

I tear into the package. It won't open. I grip it harder, trying to remove the plastic wrap. Still nothing. I try using my teeth, my fingernails, cursing. Damn you soothing green tea package!

I storm over to the paper cutter and in one swift motion I bring the guillotine of death down upon the tea package, daring it to laugh at me now!

Soothing my ass...
