A bottle of tea like the one pictured to the left costs about 200 yen at the grocery store. If you drink tea in buckets like I do (especially in the summer), that bottle doesn’t last very long. I used to buy several bottles of tea a week. It was expensive. It doesn’t have to be though. Buying tea in the big bottles is the most expensive way to do it. Check the boxed tea aisle instead.
My grocery store sells this package of mugi-cha for 200 yen. It contains 54 tea bags, each of which make several liters of tea for my overzealous consumption. Instead of paying 200 yen a few times a week, now I pay it a few times a year. Big improvement!
Avoiding the refrigerated bottle tea aisle and going to the boxed tea aisle can save you lots of yen. Even if you are loyal to a specific kind of tea, like お～いお茶 (Oi Ocha), you might be able to find a powdered form for cheaper.
Or you could just drink water ;)Like this post? Give me the Thumbs Up!
