Loose leaf tea inventory

A friend recently asked us how much tea we drink each day.  I replied, "Two cups," while Rotea said "one."  I used to drink several cups a tea per day but with a youngster it is hard to find to the time to properly steep and to drink several infusions or even a few cups of tea. We told ourselves that we should do what we used to - steep loose leaf tea in the morning and for me, in the afternoon, tea. We were tempted to purchase new tea but when we inventoried our tea cupboard we realized that would be foolish.  We have a lot of tea at home.  Here is our loose leaf tea inventory by type:
