"All this is, is hot water with a leaf in it"

My brother and i went to Peru on vacation. Due to the altitude, they offered coca tea to help with altitude sickness. I enjoy tea and had no problem drinking it. My brother on the other hand, hates tea and refused to drink the "hot water with a dried leaf". He suffered from a head and general malaise. After a few days of this illness, he began to get very grouchy and agitated. I finally ended up using reverse psychology on him. The tea did not taste good, so i finally told him that it was, "so gross, I didn't think he could handle it". Challenge accepted, tea drank, end of altitude sickness.
