My last sachet of this (for now?). I am trying to decide what to do. I love this, but I am not sure I love it 16 ounces worth. It is kind of funny, because the tins sort of work out to be around 36 cents for a double cup (the sachets make 12 oz) and the loose does make it a little cheaper.

If I were to buy the pound, is there anyone who would want part of it? It works out to be about $1.50 per ounce, and I might ask that you pay around a dollar for shipping. I am just looking at my options right now….I am not sure I will go this route. I can always buy the sachets for a while.

Update: It sounds like they will be able to get it at the Millerton Shop!

Another option, though it wouldn’t happen for a bit, is I could pick you some up loose at the soho store next time I’m there. Last time I saw they had a bin of it loose on the shelf. So if Millerton doesn’t work out, let me know!

Work something up, I would be interested in syndicating on this…

KeenTeaThyme

I would definitely love to try this – please let me know how much I’ll owe you; I could easily do at least a 1/4 of a pound or more.

and now, there are three players, 3rds anyone?

I should have known there would be takers… Turns out I am ordering some from the Millerton Shop (unless that does not work out.) I would be happy to send some to teawing and KiTT to try since I did not get my edit done in time. Then the next time we need some, we can definitely split a pound.

KeenTeaThyme

that works for me. I’ll send anything you’d like your way as well. Just let me know. :) :)

Bio

Tea enthusiast, trying to keep up my cardio for the zombie apocalypse. I have come to accept that I am a western brewing black tea drinker as that is where my ‘tea heart’ lies. I started on loose leaf as a way to have my dessert and not suffer the caloric issues. Once I tried it, I was hooked.

I drink what I like, which is mostly China blacks, a few traditionally scented blacks and Earl Greys, plus a flavored tea here and there. I don’t mind spending a bit on premium varieties on occasion, but an expensive tea has to deliver. My favorite places to order are Harney & Sons and Upton Tea Imports. TeaVivre is great for Chinese tea.

My ratings are pretty subjective. If it falls under 70, I may not take the time to post about it unless I had something specific to say. If it is 70-80 I like it, but I will probably not rebuy. Favorites are over 80 and up, but sometimes the less expensive or more easily obtainable version of a similar taste will win out for my cupboard space.

Usual teapot steeping method: 24 oz teapot, 3 perfect scoops of tea (4 1/2 actual tsp), freshly boiled water, 4 minutes. Lightly sweetened.

Usual mug steeping method: 15 oz mug, 1.5 perfect scoops of tea (just over 2 actual tsp), freshly boiled water, 4 minutes. Lightly sweetened.

Usual pan method: 1 1/2 cups water, 2 perfect tsp chai (3 actual tsp). Simmer for 3 minutes. Add 2/3 cup skim milk. Simmer for 2 more minutes. Strain and sweeten.

Usual pitcher method:
5 or 6 Perfect Spoons of tea (this means about 7-9 actual tsp), freshly boiled water, brewed essentially double-strong in my 24 oz teapot for 4 minutes. Fill my Fiestaware Disc pitcher (about 60 oz.) halfway with ice. Add brewed double-strong tea to the pitcher. Stir it a little and enjoy. No additions.

(*SRP is my Sample/Stash Reduction Plan starting on April 12, 2012. I got so far, but just decided it was too fussy to keep track.)
