I think stress makes people buy more products be it tea or other things. I tend to make lists of what I want and wait and then wait some more before buying. Then I have for myself the rule of 3. How many new teas would I be able to enjoy in a same time span there again 3.

I count tea as a food, so I bought a lot this year. Now I have less money. So I can’t really buy anymore. But I still find ones that sound good.

I find drinking some old favorites helps. Reminds me what I have already is wonderful.

When I find “deals” and “coupons” I am always tempted to buy tea! I always think back to the last time I bought something that I didn’t need. If it was recent (within the past week), then no tea buying. Right now I keep thinking that Christmas is coming up and there will certainly be tea gifts, so I am just holding out. I have a feeling that after the new year, I will go on a tea buying frenzy.

I have a lot of tea… my husband knows I have a lot of tea. But we both realize this is a better addiction then cigs, or drugs or plenty of other things. Plus now that I know of steepster I can trad a lot with people!
