When you get a new tea shipment and can’t help but drink it even though its already evening, knowing you’re gonna wake up every two hours overnight to go to the bathroom.

When you order tea and then track its progress on a postal service app as the order travels across the globe to your mailbox. Every postal update is met with anticipation and calculations of how much longer you’ll be waiting for that package!

You sacrifice sleep for that third steep of Li shan, late in the evening.

Netflix becomes your buddy addiction for tea. Can’t sleep? There is always a movie to watch…

Your partner becomes your enabler, signing for those boxes from Taiwan and China when you’re away.

when you’re mixing up a box of brownies and it calls for 3 Tablespoons of water, and you think to yourself “what do I have in the teapot right now? Kusmi Caramel? oh, that should go with walnut brownies just fine” and so 3 Tbsp of water suddenly becomes 3 Tbsp of tea and they turn out delicious

When you drive on a road called “Formosa” and get excited because it’s related to tea.

When your partner texts to ask how to make a cup of chai, and after you provide the instructions replies with “Thank you, Tea Mistress”.

Hahaha, that’s cute. :)

I’ve been called “Tea Guru”/“Tea Master” a few times. “Iced Tea Master” is another one, since apparently I make a better cup of iced tea than my other tea-drinking friends, haha!

When the owner of a tea store calls out your name and comes running up to you on only your second trip there, introducing herself and thanking you for reviewing their teas on their website.

When your doctors tell you you have to stop drinking tea and you tell them they’ll have to come up with a different solution!

The second one is hard core! I hope your second solution works out for you!

When you go to the supermarket and even if you don’t need tea,you’ll still buy a new brand or buy another box of your favourite tea even if you already have 10 boxes at home!

…you find yourself arguing on Steepster with someone in regard to the best tea mulches.
