As a Teavana employee, you here some wacky stuff, including:
  1. β€’
    Pickup lines
    Me: Try some tea? Customer: Hot tea? Me: Well yes, it is hot. Customer: Hot tea from a hottie Me: (quietly sinks into the wall)πŸ˜“
  2. β€’
    "Is this marijuana tea?"
    To which I always respond: "No. It's maharaja. Big difference. One is delicious, and legal in Ohio. The other is not."
  3. β€’
    "I hate tea"
    That's great. But I don't walk downstairs to an employee at The Buckeye Corner and announce that I hate football and Ohio State. Respect the tea.
  4. β€’
    "Is it really picked by monkeys?"
    People always ask this when they try the Monkey Picked Oolong Tea. To which I really want to say: "What do you think? Do you honestly believe we sell tea leaves that have been touched by the feet of well-trained primates...?"

    -Silence-
    This happens when someone comes back for a sample for a third- or even fourth time- in the same day. And then they see us approach and avert their eyes at all costs as they sip the tea. Silence.

    "Will it make me any younger?"
    Oh Youthberry. How we hate your name.
  7. β€’
    More creepy pickup lines:
    Customer: Do you drink a lot of tea here? Me: Yes, definitely! Customer: That must be what makes you so beautiful. Me: Uh...eerr...thanks. Um....bye (slinks away to the back room)

    "Oh! I get this tea from Starbucks all the time!"
    You just put a knife through my heart.
  9. β€’
    "Do you sell coffee here?"
    The knife just went deeper. Here comes the blood.

    "I can't wait to get home and try it!"
    I truly love what I do as a Teavana employee, and I am overjoyed when a customer comes in and finds a tea they love or discovers a new one. This is the best comment of all!

    "I loved that peppermint one!"
    😍😍😍😍Me too! That tea is called White Chocolate Peppermint. It's seasonal, but it should be coming back soon enough!!!
