Sipdown, 248. I put all my single-serving-left teas in one box this morning, so I can finish them off quickly and feel extra good about stash reduction. As it is, this quantification is making me feel pretty good. More than 10 teas in less than a week, yay!

I am extra tired this morning and could really use a boost. This tea seemed like just the ticket! And it is extra delicious today. Citrusy and sweet and very creamy. Sometime after I have stash-reduced more, I will certainly make an order for more of this tea. It is nice to have something besides strong blacks in the morning that I know will wake me up.

I’ll have to change my stash reduction accounting method (based on quantities) to yours: it’s easier to make a difference and feel good about it…

Yes, I had a quantity-reduction plan before, but it never felt like I was making any progress. This has been great!

I have estimated to have about 26 months consumption stocked in my pantry and I have not included the samples and lone tea-bags that stand in a little (uhm medium) box on my kitchen counter.
My next decision should be to finally throw away some teas I do not like and will obviously never finish or maybe never drink again. This would make the biggest improvement ever in my stash.
I’ll add a basic number reduction plan to my quantity one to be able to include some good progress when necessary!

Bio

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: I’m in LOVE with these teas.
89-85: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
84-80: Tasty teas that I enjoy, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but wouldn’t seek out. They don’t quite do it for me in one aspect or another; often just not quite my style
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
