I know people who routinely spend $50 on a bottle of wine at dinner, I for one would much rather spend that money on Tea! (and tea goes way further!))
Taste is very subjective and there is no guarantee. You might think the $46 tea is the absolute best and I may try it and gag. Then I'd be mad for throwing away $46 bucks on a gagger. I'm thinking .25 lb would barely last my husband & I a month with the rest of the stash (4-5 infusions?). I have only ordered Oolong from Adagio, Red Blossom & Rishi so maybe I need to broaden my tea stash.
I also bought soda for the first time in MONTHS last week. Got me thinking I probably used to spend as much on Diet Coke as I spend on tea now. Especially at work. I think I am also more alert on less caffeine.
Other problem is Pu Ehr is starting to grow on me and I am thinking about toddling out of the baby pool and jumping into the deep end and ordering a Pu Ehr cake on Friday. There's another whole set of choices to make.
$50 bucks on a bottle of wine makes me half crazy! If I had $50 extra bucks/month the high I would get from socking it away into my mutual fund would seriously surpass anything I'd get from the wine!
