His reason for disliking tangiers is a legitimate one, and he's not saying he hates it based on the fact that it takes too long or it's tingly.
I guess no one remembers my posts about disliking Tangiers for the same reason Sambooka listed. I dislike Tangiers becase 3 of the 5 flavors I tried smelled like Bar b que and no matter how much acclimation was given nothing changed. The other 2 didn't stink of Bar b que but they smelled off. When they were acclimated they smelled like the flavors were supposed to I guess. I packed and foiled them in a funnel bowl per instructional tutorials and the flavors were lacking. I don't like it because if 5 different flavors weren't good. In fact they sucked.
It was mentioned that Tangiers doesn't advertise and is sold by word of mouth. I honestly believe that's true. Why else would there be so many cheerleaders?
