A Tea Party to Protest Against my Own Spending

Day 169

Happy Patriots' Day!

What was one of the earliest acts of patriotism in America?

Yesterday, I had a tea party of my own, of sorts. It was the ritual of buying green tea at a price that would not make my wallet feel violated.

I find that Stop & Shop is the best place to do this and made my first stop in the health food section where I found some Nature’s Promise green tea for $2.69 a box. Not bad but I had a feeling I could do better.

I then proceeded to the coffee/tea aisle proper and did indeed much better prices there:

I ended up getting one box of herbal wellness green tea at $1.99 and four boxes of Salada green tea at $2.00 a box. Much better than the Nature’s Promise price.

All in all I paid a total of $9.99 for five boxes (100 individual teabags) which averages out to .09 cents per serving. I love that something that is tasty and good for you (think antioxidants people) is just under 10 cents a cup. That is much cheaper than buying coffee pods for my single serve coffee maker and I can make a box of tea last much longer than a bag of those pods too.

Talk to you soon!
