You know you're "addicted" to tea when ....
When you start ordering free catalogs just because. I received the Republic of Tea’s with a sample today, and my dad called me bananas.
When you have a new cup of good green tea (and one of your favorite companies!) in the car waiting while you have chinese and enjoy most of a pot of an unammed dark oolong with dinner…then go back to the cup of green as soon as you enter the car!
When your family members threaten to take away your credit card because they are concerned about how much tea you are purchasing.
When you cannot go in a travel or excursion without packing your favorite tea variety and tea pot.
When you see your neighbour get out of his vehicle carrying a large Davids Tea bag and you get super jealous.
Or when you see an empty DavidsTea cup lying in the middle of the drive thru you’re sweeping at work, and get super jealous. Then go in telling everyone sadly “… and they had Pom Tango. D: That’s from the new Spring collection.”
When you’re annoyed at tea bags in your cupboard not just because they are well, um… tea bags! but also that it’s more defined in serving size and you can’t cheat your tea spreadsheet and add more than there actually is so that it looks like you are drinking it down faster…
When you see an abandoned cup of water with a teabag sitting in it in the break room at work, and you feel bad for it because you know the tea is probably overstate.
When you look in your cupboard of 60+ teas, can’t seem to find one you “feel” like drinking and come to the conclusion you don’t have enough tea. You then buy more tea, even though you have nowhere to store it.
When you get a few new teas and insist everyone who walks in your house for the next two days smell the tea.
When you go in the kitchen to grab tea and your family suddenly disappears because they know you are going to make them smell some tea and give them an introductory course for that specific tea.
When you keep on checking the tracking status of your tea orders, even though you may have checked no less than a half hour ago.
When USPS’s site and Steepster are the top two most visited sites on your browser.
When you are moving your furniture around and accidentally find a hidden tea stash of dozens of sample bags; but no one says anything because they know you are basically a tea squirrel.
Oh my gosh, that would be the cutest plush! I’m saving for the winter! I vote Tea Squirrel as our mascot. :3
I second the vote for a Tea Squirrel mascot!
And I agree with Kasumi, especially about a button…I can’t help myself when it comes to buttons!
A tea squirrel would be cute….but a tea kitty (imo) would be even better. grins
“Tea squirrel” gets some interesting results on google, as does tea kitty…
Do I see a series of comics in my future to draw up? :P Lariel, I love that idea!
I’d love a comic. =P
Lariel – Tea kitty… I’m melting just thinking about it. Bit of a cat lady, here.
