You know you're "addicted" to tea when ....
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 davidstea.com 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.
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.
When you’re planning your vacation in places that have tea rooms and tea shops.
When you find out you’re going on a two week holiday and the first thing you think of is what kinds of tea you’re going to bring for the road.
When you hide any parcels that come through the post!
… when any cup of milk WITHOUT matcha just feels like a waste.
