Damn you Terri! No orders until June! WANT! MOAR! NAO!

Holy hannibel, i had this in the morning and let me tell you, i have a single normal person cup’s worth left and it might just be hoarded. Because i am trying to commit to no tea orders until June. It’s going to be hard because i have been thinking about this tea most of today. This is a great assam! mmmmm i have no words beyond “now accepting donations to get me through the month of may” lol I kid! but seriously? This has me wanting to try many more Steven smith teas since this was my first taste of their teas.

Nicole

Augh! Not another tea vendor!

Sil

Nicole..yes…i know the sororiteasisters have mentioned steven smith before, or at least one of them has but this was my first time trying one. And this is a delicious assam! and reasonably priced imo 5.50 for 2oz?

Nicole

I looked at the site. Bookmarked for payday…

Sil

jealous! lol i now have to wait until june. must resist all tea sales. must go a whole month without ordering lol

TastyBrew

He has a shop here in Portland and i’m planning on making a run there pretty soon to grab a variety of flavors and then send some samples to Terri. I’ll put you on the list too Sil if you want. I have several bagged varieties already since they sell those in the grocery store here, but I want to hit the shop since there are several they don’t sell at the grocery store.

Sil

whimper you need to find teas in my cupboard you want lol I can’t even explain why this particular tea makes me so happy. Lol

Terri HarpLady

Yay TastyBrew! Definitely check out my cupboard too, I want to send you a fun-box! :D
Sil – it makes you happy because it is awesome!

Sil

Tasty….beware the fun boxes from Terri!

Hallieod

Seconding *Nicole*’s Augh! That website looks SO tempting, but it’s another that doesn’t
spell out its international shipping policies, so double augh. But your review…!!

Sil

Hallie – if I make a purchase (in June) remind me and I can send you some to try :)

Hallieod

Thanks! Or if I cave before June, I’ll send you a care package to keep you going. :)

Sil

You may also be able to poke someone who has this and see if they’d b killing to do a mini swap with you in case international shipping is a bust. I can’t even remember what it was when I was looking at it.

Hallieod

Hah, don’t think I need this tea enough to do any killing to get it. :)

Terri HarpLady

LOL! Hallie, I’d be glad to share…

Terri HarpLady

And you won’t have to ‘kill’ me to get me to do it :)

TastyBrew

I can share too. I’m a pushover, literally, if you just push me over I’ll share some. No killing necessary.

Hallieod

I’m so relieved, Terri & TastyBrew – I just find that killing doesn’t put one in the best frame of mind for enjoying a fine tea, y’know? :P

Seriously, thank you both! I got an amazingly quick response from Alex at Smith Teas and am going to play with the cart to see what shipping is like. If it’s too bad, I’ll see what I might have to offer in return for this Assam-of-Happiness!

Sil

Ugh auto correct killing = willing and that was totally a poke at Terri and tastybrew since I know they’re awesome for things like that :)

Hallieod

They were totally awesome, especially as neither of them knew me at all! But Alex was very helpful and I [blushes] placed an order. Small, really!

Sil

Awesome! Can’t wait to see your reviews :)

Terri HarpLady

Yeah! Makes me want to fall off the wagon & order something! :D

Cavocorax

Lol – I love the comments. :)

Also, I guess I’d better bookmark this tea for later…

TastyBrew

I’ll be hitting the shop soon, any special requests? Speak now or forever hold your peace… Or at least until next time I go. Or the next. Or the one after that.

Sil

no need for special purchases for me but would love to try “bonbon” (herbal) or no. 9 (black) if those happen to be ones you’re picking up. though i suspect that in june i may just try picking up the variety packs. TOO MANY CHOICES!

Terri HarpLady

All of those black teas look interesting to me :)
Of course, I’ll be willing to try anything! So far I’ve had #49 & #55. The Chai sounds interesting!

Hallieod

Aaah, I’m so weak! (Also so far behind in tasting notes it’s not funny.) But the force of tea-pushing is strong in you, Sil!

Bio

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
