I have just under 30kg which took me about six years to obtain. Definitely slowing things down now.

My data base says I've purchased 33kg of puerh and 11kg of oolong so far in my tea-drinking career.

Almost 120kg (without the samples).

Approximatively:

15 kg before 80'
32 kg 80'
56 kg 90'
15 kg 2000-2013

Too much for one life, I began to give some to friends who start to drink some tea.

So if you have 100 cakes that will only last you ten years of every day consumption. so if you are planning on actually seeing any of your tea truly age. Than you need at least 200 cakes. That is assuming you buy new tea. These are the kinds of justifications I give my wife anyway.
I like your maths.

Now just adjust and tell her you typically brew 15g a session, BAM, you increased your need for reserves

about 20 kilos in storage, over the past 12 or 13 years.
now i buy only very little, just to replenish what i have used, to be ready to drink in 10 or 15 years, or more.

It would be funny to think that the 2 people who have >200kg are NOT the same 2 people who said they have enough for many lifetimes.
