Another Traveling Teabox Tea!!!!

I can most assuredly say that Andrews and Dunham make no false claims. This is truly a Damn Fine Tea! Smooth and delicious! A classic ceylon taste only a million times better.

Sad story: My husband was really loving this tea, and he put it down for a moment and the remote control to our projector (we have a projector and a playstation to watch movies – no television – I hate television! But I digress) slipped and fell INTO HIS TEA!!!!! Now, not only is the remote not working and his cup of tea ruined, BUT I HAD TO SHARE!! Since I had such a clutchy reaction to this tea, I think I have to look into getting some more DFT :) I know series one is long gone, but series two looks pretty fantastic too…

Happy story: I just ordered series two :) My tea budget for the month is history (I also found and bought Marco Polo from Mariage Freres yesterday and ordered the GM sampler earlier in the week) and it’s only Feb 6th! What a spendthrift!

I think this site has made controlling the tea budget a very real problem for most of us. Sorry to hear about your remote! Any luck getting it to work now that it’s had time to dry out?

JacquelineM

No luck yet. We tried it this morning. It’s resting on a napkin and we’ll try it again tonight. And yeah – it’s rough! I wear my clothes for years, shoes til they have holes, I don’t go to expensive dinners or out on the town, but put a tin of tea in front of me and I lose all self control! Same with books and art supplies :)

Yeah Andrews & Dunham’s whole limited quantity thing and amazing tea labels really makes you want to grab a set before it’s all gone. I’m tempted to get series 2 even though I don’t even like black tea much. I guess I’ll see how the Yunann is when it arrives =P I’ve been monitoring series 2 for a while and it’s still at a steady 30-40 sets =P

Ricky

Don’t beat me to the last set!

I’m not the only one monitoring it, it seems. =) I got #15 of Series 5.

lol I was revising my comment. My bad.

I plan to order when it gets around 20-25.

Ricky

I’m gong to take a risk and decide if I want it when it drops under 20 =P I’m not so sure about series 3 though.

There’s still lots of Series 3 left though. So there is plenty of time to think about it.

Bio

I love to cook, bake, read, paint, knit, do needlework, and garden. I need my coffee, but I LOVE my tea. I work at an Art School, and attend a large public university doing post-bac work (my BA is in English). I’m interested in the liminal spaces between art and craft, the academic and the practical, the individual and community, and the old and the new. I’m currently exploring these ideas through the disciplines of education, literature, history, and psychology.

I enjoy writing tasting notes, but have decided not to numerically rate teas as of 9/14/10. For an explanation, see my looooong tasting note about Mountain Malt from the Simple Leaf.

My favorites:
Chinese black teas
A good “milk and sugar” English style black
Earl Grey (classic, and in all variations!)
Vanilla teas (classic, and in all variations!)
Jasmine, Rose, Violet and other froofy, flowery teas!
An Occasional Oolong
Flavored Rooibos
Herbal Tisanes
