Hey DAVIDs, can you add gingerbread cookie since it’s already been released with the 24 days of tea?

DAVIDsTEA

Hey Kristal! We’ll be putting up the tasting notes soon :)

Fay

Besides, you should need to write a tasting note because there’s no peeking allowed ;)

Kristal

Thanks DAVIDs! You guys are my favourite :)

Fay, hehe, I know I shouldn’t peek but I’m very particular about making sure all the teas I have in my possession are in my cupboard here on steepster. That way even as I use up the small samples I can remove them-therefore “decreasing” my collection :). To be fair, I don’t remember what teas are for what days- I just quickly added each sample to my cupboard. So It’ll still be a surprise :).

Fay

Oh I completely understand. I went to do the same as soon as my calendar arrived!

Kristal

Hehe, I’m not the only one!
