Anyone that has set foot into a Teavana after being in a small independent tea shop has more than enough info. Yes, the employees (at the store near my house) are friendly, but I find it a bit ridiculous when not one single employee knows you and gives you the exact same sales pitch every time after buying stuff 30+ times.
Here is a list of sales pitches I get every time I walk into the store (often from the same person):
-1 pound discounts on tea
-Get a 1 pound tin instead of the 9 oz tin because it's only a dollar more
-Get some white tea mixed into whatever tea you order for cancer-fighting properties (note: this automatically makes your cup of tea cost $5 because they charge you the 'premium/rare' tea price)
-Same exact spiel about each tea when I ask to smell one
