    TEAVANA purchase

    Anyone ever been into a Teavana before? I had my first experience there last weekend at the mall. It went something like this:
    OMG it smells so good in here...try samples, the ratio of workers to shopper 6/1. They have samples of teas everywhere (hot and cold)....smells wonderful....ask for a sample and the workers seem put off almost (weird). OK, i got to the counter, I like two teas I've sampled....they pick up the large container-"you have one of these?"-no, how much is the tea?-oh no, you must have a container ($7.50) but, for the one tea, you must have the ($8.50) container, cuz the other one won't work....ok, again, how much is the tea? It's by the ounce and separate. OK-she begins to fill BOTH containers. Ring me up----that will be $148.00-and welcome to your new LIFESTYLE of tea.....Um, yeah-for that price it's a new lifestyle alright (or weekly grocery bill for family of 4). So seriously, I justify $150 on tea, when there are people around the world starving. Why don't you cut some staff and reduce the tea price. I figure this is a great move for SBUX, cuz the margins must be OUTRAGEOUS. Now they have to find enough people stupid enough to buy their overpriced tea.....
