Interesting how this came in the Amoda box last winter, and is here again this winter. Hm…

It is however minty and refreshing, although there’s only a mild amount of chocolate flavoring for me, I’m still really enjoying it.

You got your Amoda box?!

Dexter

Ugggg a mint tea – I’d kind of forgotten about the Amoda box – no hope of getting under 300 this week….

OMGsrsly

I totally didn’t even register the mint. :/

The Amoda box is only 3, Dexter! You can do it! :)

Dexter

LOL yeah those 3 plus the swap box due to be delivered on Friday, plus the GCTTB that I HOPE is about to arrive…yeah no chance…

MissB

Of the three, one I have to pass on right from the start. Yep, I received it this afternoon…

I just got mine TODAY. #pitypartybegins
Are you guys happy you stuck with it? So far, yes. Although if you think of it as $4 a sample, that’s pretty steep, but OTOH, if it inspires you to buy from a vendor you’ve never heard of before, then yay?

OMGsrsly

I think I’m gonna cancel after next month. Depending on what we get. :)

Dexter

I think I’m too fussy, too many things I don’t like. I started in December, opened the box, looked in, went ewwwwww, and sent the whole thing to Sil. This month, I opened the box and thought 2 out of 3 not bad. When you look at it, I’ve now paid 24.00 for 2 samples that I’m interested in – that’s really steep. I’m going to give it another month or so – see what happens when we get past the Christmas flavors….

Cavocorax

Dexter – ouch!

Yeah, I guess I’ll go month by month for a little longer. Until I feel foolish for paying so much.

Dexter

That’s the chance you take with these types of subscription programs. It’s fine, just the way it worked out – passed some tea on to a friend – earned some tea Karma – it’s all good, just hoping for a couple of months that I like everything and find a new supplier. I’ll give it a couple more months.

… also very unimpressed that they’re using the same tea twice. I think I may complain about it.

Bio

A few years ago, the obsession with tea started. The cupboard got bigger and bigger, more swaps occurred, group buys, secret rendezvous with local teapassionistas… and that’s how you end up with 500+ different kinds of tea in your home. At one time.

Now, it’s purge time. Time to gather what’s needed and let go of the rest. Almost all of the tea was given away, sold, or otherwise shared. A few relics still remain. It’s still a challenge to avoid the chipmunk-like hoarding of The Teas, yet, the lightness of being from having so little compels me more. And so, I’m happy to share (anytime!) and will occasionally desire small amounts of tea for swaps, just to try.

As for the day-to-day stuff, I’m focused almost entirely on Love, (yes, with a capital L), Spirit/Self, transformation, and work (dating columnist and consultant).

No-can-do: lavender, overly floral (French florals, or florals that are creamy rather than, well, floral work well!), sugar, Splenda, all grains.

Love: fruity, dessert, chai, spicy, all types of tea.
