Secrets of Success

Byot - Bring Your Own Tea



I recently quit coffee and started drinking tea. At first I was buying chai tea lattes ($4.50 for tea and milk!) but now I take a box of tea with me in my backpack wherever I go. Even if I forget my mug, $.25 for a paper cup is much cheaper than $2 for tea -- which is only about $2 a box at the store!

  • I have tea in my desk at work -- a bunch of different kinds -- and usually take green, mint, and black tea with me if I go on vacation.

  • I love Starbucks green tea, but it's $2.20 per I bought some of their bags and I make my own pitcher every week and use that tea to fill the cups I have saved from going to Starbucks. Add some Simple Syrup from Trader Joe's and it's ust like the real thing...only cheaper:D - by HAPPY92003
  • I keep tea at work, I have an electric kettle (which has many uses). It saves a bunch of money, not to mention calories over the soft drinks I used to get from the vending machine. - by BAREADER
  • Tea is so refreshing and I am glad you figured out how to do that. I get Tea (Seniors) for .65 At McDonalds. Sometimes my Friend takes her own decaf tea bag. - by GRAMMAP1
