So...the tea is this season's barf-o-rama.

Seems a bit odd in view of the sponsor. ???

no...but a tea challenge that turns into a barf fest is a bit odd when the episodes are sponsored by Snapple (who we all LOVE for their sponsorship of course!!). But maybe the sponsor came after the filming, lol.

Or maybe we don't get to see :barf   ...fine by me.

I think this will be China Tea vs Indian Tea. Remember that cup of tea you had in China??  :snicker:

We've also heard that Snapple's sponsorship of one of BevReview's favorite reality shows, The Amazing Race, will be used to introduce new flavors Papaya Mango Tea and Diet Papaya Mango Tea later this month.

Snapple has been doing the Reality Moments, and is a commited sponsor doing a LOT to help TAR. So love them for that...I am just sorry about the tea. :funny:

Now it makes sense - Mallory is carrying a mango and a papaya. And on the tables its all mangos and papayas - the room probably reeks of mango so the racers can't "sniff out" the cup they're looking for. :groan:

Why is Mallory carrying an armload of fruit?
Is the task to find the cups of tea that matches the fruits you've been given?

I hope none of the Racers are allergic to Mango tree sap.

(Mangos grow on trees, we had one in our back yard growing up in Miami, but none of us could touch the fruit when it fell off the tree; we were all allergic to the tree sap.

I would be surprised to see barfing from tea. Maybe a waterlogged feeling or a Kisha and Jen style bathroom break.  :lol3:

And you have to list allergies in the Race application so hopefully they are covered.

Trust me, there is :barf

Serious barf. :eww


Of course...we may or may not see it, out of respect to Snapple.  :lol:

And yes, given tea's natural diuretic qualities, I am very thankful to NOT see Jen doing this RB!!

Unfortunately, the promo doesn't show anything except several teams riding in cabs at night. The Cowboys' cabbie passes everyone. The Globetrotters' cabbie is slow. Ron and Chris are the ones who nearly have a traffic accident.

It's probably the cab ride from the airport to the first Route Info Marker in Kolkata.

I guess Prophet doesn't remember Mary/Peach from TAR2 and that horrid tea.

These are routemarker caps for the GE guys to use to hopefully plot out our location...There are >2000 caps, so if anyone thinks I may have missed a goodie, tell me where to look and I'll see what we have.

There's a Sundari Saree Emporium on Chittaranjan Ave (#27). If they're coming from the airport I'd guess the cabs are pointed south.

Just a guess...they're going here (wherever that gate is) for a route info stop, get hit with hoo, and have to come back the next morning.

I totally agree. This should be our first route info...and we should be able to find this. We have a gate, a fence beyond...a pathway, stone columns...

There aren't THAT many historic places to search...this is driving me crazy.

Could it be the Alipore Zoological Garden, Kolkata?

Also, while Luke is there by himself, there are many cups of tea gone from the table.

Here's a comparison to those same windows:





Are we seeing the same picture? I don't see many cups "gone from the table"? :duno:
