    I'm a sucker for buying flavoured teas yet I don't really ever get in the mood to drink any.

    Would I be better off selling them at a loss or keep them because I most likely will use them up over the next year or so.

    They are taking up a whole shelf.

    I'm in the same situation! I have a huge basket full!

    What I've started doing is making one cup of tea a day - mid-afternoon.

    Definitely keep them and try them! I've discovered flavours I like - and others, not so much!

    If you know you won't use them, you can always include them in trades as an extra, or maybe trade for them??

    offering them to guests, or maybe in the summer make some nice flavoured iced tea would be refreshing! don't throw them out!

    It's winter. Make a habit of having at least one cup of tea per day-use the good tea setting for your cup after lunch or dinner. I like chai-type teas for a change and some spice. Fruit flavoured herbal teas are light and go well on their own or with dessert.

    At night or when it's really chilly/damp, I want a fragrant tea to hold in my hands!

    I've used Earl Grey tea in the poaching liquid for dried fruit compote and an old Victoria magazine recipe for Earl Grey Tea Bread.

    Great post, this is soooo me. I have no resolutions for you. But was just happy to see I am not the only one.
    I figure they keep forever, one day I will just feel like a tea and I will have a really hard time deciding which one.

    I had a afternoon tea party with my friends recently. It was great to use up come tea bags and it's a great way to get together and chat. Just buy or make some cookies/biscuits as well and use a nice tiered tray and pull out your fancy cups and tea cozies!

    When I get to the point of too many tea in my house. I start making ice tea (even in winter) and leaving it in the fridge. Because you use double the tea, it goes away fast.

    Since it's supposed to be mild on the weekend, that iced tea will come in handy.

    You can keep tea leaves for at least 2 years in airtight tins. Even after 2 years, they don't really go bad, the flavor just isn't as good. They are safe to consume.

    I always have too much tea as well! But that's because people keep buying me disgusting tea. Coffee drinkers are terrible at buying tea for tea drinkers. They buy FUN flavors like "pina colada coconut" It was the most disgusting ever. Things like "Santa's helper" is also bad... Don't get me started with useless teaware like Miranda Kerr Tea for One Teapot. Who makes one cup of tea in a freaking pot?

    I felt obligated to keep them for years until I started doing the KonMari purge. I just donated all the tea I don't like to the food bank. Since you bought the tea yourself. I assume you like them? Keep them.
