Steeped it for 4 minutes this time and the cinnamon is less overwhelming. I still don’t care for this tea though…

Once I figure out how I would ship tea to people (baggies in a padded envelope?), I’ll likely put this on my trade list. There has to be someone who will like it, right? But for now I just have a lot of other teas to enjoy and life is too short!

I actually shipped some tea in a washed and dried out pill bottle awhile back and that worked nicely!

Oh that’s not a bad idea! I guess an empty altoids tin would work as well because they’re flat (so cheaper to ship?), so long as I can get the smell out first. With the Mamma Mia, at least it’d be easy to ship because it’s in the original foil bag.

Yes, baggies in padded envelopes or boxes works well! Depends where you’re shipping to/from, etc. etc. And double-bag strongly scented teas (but the foil bag for this one is more than adequate).

Bio

Tea: I just started drinking loose tea in the fall of 2012, and once I started I had to get more and more and try ALL THE TEAS. Joining Steepster made this worse/easier.

So far it seems that I prefer unflavoured black teas, although I still drink a few that are flavoured each day too. Oolongs, greens, puerhs and white teas are all very good, but I just don’t crave them as often.

Yet.

Me: Ok. Random things. I like animals, I have a baby girl and a devoted bf, and … I’m a geek. I like Lord of the Rings, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, pen&paper RPG’s, online RPG’s, video games, silly internet memes, puzzles and a bunch of others things! I taught myself to knit and I’m considering crochet but I need to make time for all these things!

Ratings:
1-50: Bleh.

76-85: It’s very good. (Buy 1oz+)
86-100: Amazing. (ALWAYS re-stock)
