It’s only sold in 12-packs, and there’s no returns. We’re not idiots. People ask, “Are you gonna have a return policy?” Folks, let me tell you something: You’re not gonna want to return this. You are gonna want to chug it, and you’re gonna regret you didn’t order more after you taste it — and then you’re gonna keep the bottles. We spared no expense. The labels are works of art. The shrink wrap is a work of art! You’re gonna take this shrink wrap off with great care to save it; you’re not gonna throw the bottles away. It’s the best label in the tea business. It’s the best shrink wrap to go along with the best tea. We have the best website; we got the best call center. We got the best of everything that’s associated with this — and, as a special bonus, shipping is free. We have included shipping in this. It’s el freebo. (…)
In this economy, I, ladies and gentlemen, wanted to show something. I’ve already said, “When they give recessions, I choose not to participate.” I wanted to demonstrate that even in this economy, with an oppressive regime like the one we have standing in the way of economic growth that it can still happen with ambition and with ingenuity and with desire.

But I’ve always told you, I love sharing my passions with people, and my life has been blessed. I wish everybody could learn at age eight what they want to do in their life like I did. I wish everybody could find that thing in life about which they’re most passionate and be paid for it rather than have it be their hobby. I’ve been very blessed, and at the same time it’s been fun to put actual political and economic policy beliefs into action, put them into play here, despite the obstacles. And those of you who are small businessmen, I’m not gonna bother you with all the regulation hoops we had to go through, all of this stuff. It was unreal the obstacles just to bring this to market. But we did it. We did it for the fun of it because we believed in it, and to see how it flies. (…)
CALLER: Yes. I just want to tell you, too, what I liked, your tea that is diet, zero calories, and that’s great, Rush, it is great.
RUSH: It is. Wait ’til you taste it. Wait ’til you taste it. People ask, “Are you embarrassed to talk about the tea?” No, I would be if it was bad, but it’s not. It is excellent. It is superb. I’m really proud. My parents, they would not believe my life. I wish they were still alive to see it.
This goes on for 15 minutes.
