Back when I worked at teavana,
I saw lots of people for fall for lots of lies.
"This tea pot gets better over time and it makes the tea taste better"
-Hit and miss but, usually works on those looking to buy.
"Oh and you definitely need this Australian honey to go with your sencha. You just aren't drinking Sencha without this honey nobody drinking Sencha without honey. Not even the Ch-Ko-uhh... Japanese drink it without honey ya know."
-The couple bought it and bought a bunch bunch more.
"Not trying to force you to buy anything here but, you do know that you are going to want to buy this lovely gaiwan for that splendid rooibos you'll be drinking."
-He later got lied to more and bought two!
"We're the cheapest in town"
-the lady walked away.
"You like spicy? well you should ignore that low price spiced oolong and try this rare white tea oh its so heavenly and uh... pomegranately spicy!"
-The person agreed and bought it.
"Oh yes ma'am there is no difference between Earl Grey and this Earl Grey Splender with the blue pines in it. The blue pines are just for show and they cost the same.. Uh,, the canister is just.... mislabeled. yeah"
-The lady smiled and bought it.
"Opening the doors to health, happiness and wisdom"
-I don't want to even guess at how many people fall for this!
"I'm not one to screw anyone out of their money"
-That lie didn't work on me very well and it sure didn't work for the labor board either.
but, that last was a bit of digression.
