Last of this. I got my email notice the other day that my Verdant Tea monthly-club shipment was on its way, along with another ~$50 order I made because I have absolutely no patience or self-control when it comes to tea that I want to try. I was hoping that joining a subscription-based tea club would curb my desire to make these massive tea orders… nope. Instead I spent weeks wondering what teas would arrive, browsing the site again and again, hoping that month’s subscription would include something or other. I figured I would wait until my subscription package came before making an order, in hopes that it would tide me over, but … no, I just couldn’t wait. Oh well; at least I will have a ton of tea to look forward to… to sip alongside my 10cent instant noodle dinners that will be all I can afford to eat, hah.

Anyway, since I have so much Verdant tea on the way, I don’t feel so bad sipping through what’s left of my stash. Though my sense of smell is not functioning at its best right now, I can still really enjoy this. It’s making me ever-so-slightly tea-drunk; I feel a bit hyper-sensitive to touch, I think. It really is at its best full, savory, brothy flavor when brewed super-hot though. Sigh, I will miss this, but I am really looking forward to all that will take its place.

Aiko, I’m relieved to know that I’m not the only one loitering on the Verdant site, planning new orders, etc. I have actually managed to make it through a few weeks without placing an order there, but only because I wasn’t sure what would come in our tea of the month package. I’ve actually filled out an order form twice in the last week, left it sitting on an open tab on my laptop for a few days, & then it was gone. I do need to place a new order there, but the word ‘need’ is no doubt an exaggeration, which should be replace by something like ‘jones-ing for’, or some similar addict-like phraseology.

Haha! It’s good to know I’m not alone. I feel like such an addict sometimes; I’ve done the same thing, filling out wishful orders that I really can’t afford. And now my eyes are going to be just glued to the site throughout their trip to China, watching for any must-haves to pop up. I keep telling myself “just this one last order, then I really need to stop buying tea.” It’s never true. But I have yet to regret a single purchase!
