Oh Thomas, your presence is getting scarcer yet my love for you grows with every pot…with every sip!!! You are PERFECT for me! I think I am going to put a little plea on Discussions to see if anyone does not love you as much as me- I am willing to trade Jackee Muntz or Caravan for you!!! (I’m serious! If you are reading this and are not so crazy for my darling, yet love Jackee or Caravan, let’s trade!!!

Boiling 4 min, 30 sec

♥ Thomas SO MUCH. So I’m with you on the fear of the bottom of the tin. Great idea on the trading – though I’d be collecting Caravan, too! :)

JacquelineM

I know – but I have to have my priorities for my most loved love L-U-V :) I figure these will be the most attractive trades since they come in sets and are limited edition too!! although believe me, I am not exactly happy to part with them!

I’m so hesitant to spend more money, but everyone keeps raving about A&D teas…! Guess you’ll just tell me it’s worth it, right? :P

JacquelineM

tease – let’s just say that in my eyes, they are the only company that can get away with all this no samples limited edition tomfoolery ;)

tease

Augh, that’s too tempting, Jacqueline.. Holy crap, $11 shipping? D:

Auggy

Gah! Only 14 left! I really am feeling the urge to order another S2 but I already have 1 unopened set! The fear of TS being no more is not cool!
Tease, S2 = awesomeness. For S3, I could take or leave the jasmine but the EG and Caravan are love (Caravan only if you like smoky teas). Also, if you order both sets the shipping is kind of high but (for some reason) they package them separately so it’s accurate. But weird. Why not combine? Oh well.

tease

…Whoops my finger slipped and I ordered S2 and S3?

JacquelineM

tease – You’re going to be in for a real treat!!! :)

Not a single person has responded that they are willing to part w Thomas so far – i think that says alot :) even tho it is terrible for me!

sophistre

I hate it when that happens. >.>

JacquelineM

Auggy – probably not combined b/c they have the special A + D awesomesauce boxes – 5 tins probably won’t fit.

I’ve not yet decided where I am going to put my patch!!! I kind of want to make a brooch out of it (put in on a backing which I can pin on) so that I can wear it as an accessory whenever I want.

Auggy

Yeah, I figured it was easier for them to just ship sets out individually – probably makes it easier. And they are so freaking good that I only had a momentary “huh?” with the shipping and subsequent two boxes. Though I still wish they sold giant tins of TS separately. Hehe!

I ♥ NewYorkCiTEA

Thomas is a very new love to me, but he was like at first sip and even better the second day.

Doulton

Because of your raves about him, I too am planning to date Thomas. I have ordered him: my very own mail-order groom is already on his way to my door and my open arms! True, he’s bringing Jackee with him and I don’t typically indulge in threesomes. But maybe he will have some transformative powers!

JacquelineM

Doulton – I hope he does not dissapoint!!!

One day I do plan to try one teaspoon Thomas and one teaspoon Jackee!!! Oh I feel dirty!!!

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
