Fun with foreign product packaging

I recently purchased some Black Black caffeinated chewing gum. Their product slogan, as it appears on the package, is "HI-TECHNICAL EXCELLENT TASTE AND FLAVOR." Each stick of gum has a paper sleeve emblazoned with the words "YES, CHEWING!"

Then I bought some Jasmine Tea, a product of China. The external packaging is not nearly as entertaining as the gum's packaging. However, each teabag comes in a paper envelope with the following inscription: "FRAGRANT AROMA MELLOW TASTE HOMELY REFRESHER VALUABL GIFT"

I say God bless 'em -- English is a very, very difficult language.
