When you get bummed because someone tossed the tea you were saving for a resteep (or sometimes you do it yourself not thinking)!

When you see the tea consumed per capita in the UK or Ireland and realize, “holy crap I drink way more tea than that every day”

You start cooking with matcha

You drink hot tea even on a 101 degree F day

You decide to start a tea business

You join Steepster

I think joining/actively using steepster is a definite sign of ultimate tea nerd-dom

When you’re sitting at work, waiting very impatiently for the last customer to leave and you keep staring at the clock hoping they will come out soon so you can go home and have a LARGE cup of hot tea, even though I’m sure it’s about a million degrees outside.

You’re more mad that you’re cousin improperly brewed white tea than the fact that she snuck some of your new tea you had yet to receive.
