I am seriously in love with PG Tips tea, and I have a dilemma. I first purchased this tea from Amazon when they were having a ridiculous sale - and I purchased A LOT of it. I bought 4 boxes of 160 tea bags in September 2008 and I am halfway through my last box.
Here's the problem though: this tea is pretty pricey. The four boxes of tea that I purchased are about $45 on Amazon right now. However, Amazon occasionally has crazy sales that would bring the price much much lower.
I probably have enough tea for another month or so, and I am debating what I should do. It seems like the last crazy tea deal happened in March. Should I take my chances and hope for another deal, or should I just order the crazy expensive amazing tea?
I was curious to see how much I paid when I ordered it, so I looked it up in my account from Amazon. (Side note: It is kind of freaky/amazing that you can easily access any order you ever placed. Mine goes back to 1999! I think somewhere it will even tell you how many orders you have placed, but I pretty much blocked that number from my memory.) So anyway, remember this is $45 worth of tea, and I paid:
$3.68! Marked down from close to $40! For the best tea in the world!
At it's current price of $45, each tea bag will cost me 7 cents. I guess if another sale doesn't roll along that isn't bad. But just to make me feel sad, I originally bought this tea for .00575 cents a bag!
