So I looked in my cupboard, and there’s a jar of black tea labeled “regular tea.” 

And I started thinking, what defines black tea as “regular?” Who says that that tea is “normal?” Maybe in other places, a different kind of tea would be considered to be the “regular” tea. What advantages does black tea hold because it is labeled as “regular?” What invisible priviledges are we giving black tea at the expense of other teas, such as green tea or chai tea or earl grey?

It would appear, my friends, that this is a case of normativi-tea.
