When I have more tea than I can store and drink, but shopping for tea and reading reviews for new teas on this site is what I do with my break.

When I start selling my old books to place another order on even though the one I ordered last week hasn’t come in yet..

When I go to sleep at night, I lie in bed thinking about which tea I’ll have in the morning, and then waking up earlier than my alarm to have my first cup because I’m so excited.

I’ve sold off games I don’t play anymore for Della Terra samples.

When I find myself just going to tea-related websites in my free time, be they Steepster or vendors or whatever, and just hanging around, not buying anything or doing anything productive.

When I find myself looking up YouTube videos about tea to unwind after a long day.

When I find myself just thinking about tea when I’m stressed out, feeling negative, or whatever – or even when I’m in a good mood and it’s what’s on my mind – because its existence makes me happy and it helps keep me grounded.

When the first thing I do after a 25-hour fast is make myself some tea…

Getting new tea makes your day, and being frustrated when tea packages you’re waiting for take a while.

When you stress about the large number of teas that are in your cupboard, but you still continue to buy more tea.

But I need new teas for the Winter season.

I totally had this thought the other night. I was feeling so overwhelmed and almost worried about how much I have and how some of it is going to be getting really old… and yet, I have four new 100g bags of tea headed my way in the next two weeks or so… oops…

When you hide any parcels that come through the post!

… when any cup of milk WITHOUT matcha just feels like a waste.

Looking at when you go on holiday can I bring some tea home and where from

I know I’m addicted to tea when I just won Butiki Tea’s art contest and am having a hard time narrowing the order down to $50!

haha, i so feel you. once or twice i’ve made a huge order to get free shipping and i’m like “i actually knocked some stuff off to keep it reasonable, and i had a $75 minimum? REALLY? o_O” sooooo many teas!

Totally! I’m for sure taking this opportunity to try some of the unusual/expensive ones I’ve had my eye on- Japanese puerh, 1991 aged oolong, Da Yu Ling oolong…and I’m totally getting a gaiwan, since I don’t own one and have been wanting one for a while now! :D

ifjuly said

oooh, if i recall the ‘91 aged oolong is really unique and pretty awesome tasting, super complex (and japanese pu erh?! didn’t even know about that!). and squee at a first gaiwan! yay!
