I agree with this. Even at work, I have a teaball for when I have looseleaf teas. The price of buying the tea + the 100ct. box of bags (which adds only .03 to the cost of a cup) or + teaball, or + infuser... I'll do it myself. Unfortunately, I'm cheap. Wherever I can skimp on the cost of "extras," I will, and tea prepackaged in bags is a cost I will very willingly cut, even if only so that I can purchase a better quality tea.
Ex: I travel sometimes for work. Last time was a 6-week stint, where I was staying in someone else's house. Since I was driving there, I took my IngenuiTEA and a couple tins of tea. But even when flying, I'll pack a tin of tea and a teaball with no problem.
