How many days...

… worth of tea do you have?:) I just did a rough estimate and it seems I am set for ~380. Kinda scary actually. Only sample sizes for me from now on.

P.S. Ooops, 410 forgot a bag, lol :)

I have about $150 worth of tea at my home and work that will last me about 3 years.

oh gawd! If you’re going based on 1 cup per day I’d say enough for about 1000 days, but I drink anywhere between 2 & 4 cups per day. So realistically 500 days.

I should probably start using more leaves per day too :)

hmmmm whats the best way to calculate this?

Zeks said

What I did is – open every bag, compare the amount of leaves to the usual you use in a cup then do a division :) I did say that the estimate is rough :)

That’s too left brained of an activity for me! LOL

In spite of being an English literature major I like doing math, so I had to go figure this out for fun! I drink about 4oz of tea a month, so by my calculations I have roughly 40 days worth of tea on hand.

take a look at my cupboard on the cupboard pictures link, i don’t want to even try to guess or calculate on this one.

Well this is a rough estimate since I am not crazy about math, but including the bagged tea: I have probably close to a year’s worth…at least. And I just did a purge of the Teavana teas that I no longer wanted.

I don’t even know how to make myself part with anything >_

It wasn’t easy, even with the teas that I just couldn’t stand regardless of what I paired it with. (Like Aztec Fire.)

Several years, and that’s if I don’t re-steep. I way overbought in the past and will never catch up!

Since most of my teas can be resteeped all day, I probably have enough for about 2 years if I actually use all my leaves to their fullest potential. That’s what a love for oolong does for you. :) You’d only need 1-2 tsps of leaves a day with a good oolong. But I do like variety so I probably go through 2 -3 different teas a day, not using my tea to the fullest potential. So maybe only enough tea for 1.5 years. If I could manage to stop buying tea that is. I usually manage to hold back for 1 month of so before breaking down and ordering something. :)
