2018: How much will you spend on tea this year?
Last year was the first year I spent a considerable amount on tea, with one order from Yunnan Sourcing (170 CAD), Taiwan Sourcing (140 CAD) and Yunomi (50 CAD) each. Together with several other purchases from Distinctly Tea and David’s Tea, the total would be around 600 CAD.
This year I have placed one big order from YS, which hopefully will also be the only one. I am already above last year’s spendings, but I hope to keep it below 1000 CAD in the end.
Yunomi – 50 CAD
Tao Tea Leaf – 125 CAD
Distinctly Tea – 50 CAD
Yunnan Sourcing – 500 CAD
Stan Teahub – 25 CAD
Čajový dom – 90 EUR
What-Cha – 105 CAD
Yunnan Sourcing – 400 CAD
World Tea House – 20 CAD
beTeas – 35 CAD
Tao Tea Leaf – 50 CAD
Green Tea Guru – 130 CAD
Running total for 2018: 1630 CAD
I’m doing really well this year (so far). I’ve spent maybe $120 total ($20 DT small purchases, $30 paying for shipping on samples, $35 to 52Teas, $30 for amoda sampler sizes.
Have to pat myself on the back for holding steady at $100 total so far this year. No tea purchases since January. I’ve been busy drinking down my stash in order to clear room in my cabinet for spring teas. Should be able to easily go another month without needing to order anything.
This year has been unusual for me as I have only spent maybe $400 on tea for myself, but I spent $1000 in one order from Taobao for my ebay store and was rewarded with some good tea. I couldn’t be certain they would be good but they all tasted as good as they looked in the pictures. I have an even bigger purchase planned for my EBay store but don’t know if it will happen this year. First I need to sell some of the stuff I bought in my last order. If you are interested in having a look here is the link.
It was only a matter of time…I just hit $300 for the year with my Tillerman’s order. As usual, there’s been a flurry of orders since the spring harvests began rolling out a couple of months ago.
