Thankfully, since I don't get into the higher priced Oolongs, greens, Darjeelings, etc. it's of minor consideration to me when buying tea. I do like to find unique and somewhat odd teas, though, and when I find them, I do consider the price. If I can buy a pound of my regular tea for the price of an ounce of the "special" tea, I normally don't buy the special tea.
Of course all that can change when my birthday is around the corner or I get an economic stimulus check.
Brewing up some Adagio Apricot Green this morning at work. I think once all my greens are gone, I'm going to finally splurge and buy an electric kettle for the office and go back to blacks full time. Right now, they just taste crummy with microwave water or coffee maker water.
