I only have 16 to 20 countries of coffee on hand. Reminds me, I need to order Sumatra again. That gets ordered as often as Ethiopia

Impressive voting so far!

Tea is something little that goes a long way. Many demand a variety, but many are so pleasantly surprised they may have "fun" picking a diff tea.

I just looked. We have 24 different teas, some are the same flavor but decaffinated. We use Stash tea because it's from Oregon. On the beverage table at all times, we have a tea box with about 12 varieties.

About 18 to 21 different teas. I have to actually keep some in tins because the company that I buy from doesn't have "regular" local tea. And I change which ones I carry from time to time. We notice that chamomile disappears more in the winter than the summer. And we see a lot who love chai. We also have a few holiday selections that only come out for holidays.

I am having an iced chai right now. An actual Thai Chai...you can add things to snazzy it up like canned cream etc, but I am having it as is. I am not fond of chai, as I am not fond of the spices in chai, but I will have it in iced.

One place I work at has a tea box with slots for different kinds.  the box is about a foot wide with a cover.  when someone is gifted (or buys) a tea they don't like, we add it to the collection.

I love those tea caddies. Too big for the counter, but love them! It always looks so posh when someone brings that to the table at a restaurant!

With the tins of loose teas and the various sealed in foil plus the Yorkshire and Freshpak (rooisbos from South Africa) - the last 2 courtesy of innmates in both places - I have about 100 varieties. I am down a few since I passed some on to someone who could actually USE it.

People who have made a reservation saying they are looking forward to the tea just stand there looking as they say, "OMG!!!" and then choose something ordinary. Even though they have been told, "If you try one you do not like, we just toss it out, rinse the cup, and start over."

Adding - we have green, black, rooibos, white, and fruit/herbal teas in our selections.

Maddie: Stash Tea has a small tea caddy. Got one long ago and use that exclusively for the decaf foil packaged teas.

Four different teas provided in-room; nine different teas in the dining room. All individually foil wrapped (mostly Stash).

Individually wrapped tea bags with a choice of regular black teas, green teas, herbal teas and decaf.  Some varieties are organic.  All in all a choice of about 25 different teas.  Our English guests bring us great tea from Herrods!

NICE !!!!  But I'm hoping you mean Harrods wink

Next time ask if you can try some tea from Fortnum and Mason - it's their specialty.

Reg & decaf in about 10 different flavors each. Tea bags, not loose tea.

Had a cute decorative box sitting on the counter, not near the tea at all, just for decoration, and a teenager actually took the sealing tape off it, ripped open the inner cellophane and pulled out the tea bags, looked at them and stuffed them all back in and opened the real tea box. I was annoyed as all get out at her. But that's neither here nor there. Eye-wink
