Steepster Select #002 Discussion - October 2011 (SPOILERS)
The teas for this month’s box are as follows.
I received my box today! I wasn’t expecting it to arrive because last month I had first received my shipping notification with tracking information, this time, I didn’t receive any shipping notification.
I don’t know if I should divulge the theme or not… so I won’t yet get into details about the package, and I won’t be able to sit down and really enjoy these until Wednesday afternoon…
Thanks to Steepster! Another great box!
Mine arrived home yesterday, sadly I’m on campus until the 28th.
Uh hang on, don’t you mean September 2011?
I bet you are right.
Actually, we made a bit of a change to the naming of Steepster Select. Jason sent out a message, but I’m not sure if everyone got it:
“We also wanted to let you know we’re making a slight change in the way we name each monthly box. We’re numbering the boxes and switching over to magazine-style naming, meaning it’ll say “October” on the box you receive in mid-September. You’ll still get the same number of boxes you signed up for—only the name’s changed."
So this month’s box is #002 and would be our October issue, if we were a magazine. But you can’t drink a magazine. Sorry for the confusion!
Steepster Matt has spoken!
I was confused too :(
I’m not signed up, so I wouldn’t have got the message anyway. :)
Just out of curiosity, when is the deadline for signing up/paying for the next box (the “November” box that will be mailed mid-October)?
The deadline is at the end of each month, so if you sign up by Sept 30 you’ll receive the box shipped in mid-October.
Got it…very very pleased with the tea type. It is very favorite type of tea. I’m more pleased with this box then the last one. I was more happy about the strainer in the last box then the tea selection…lol.
Ooooo, then I should be getting mine soon.. Yay, I really liked one of the teas I got last box and ended up buying a bunch of it. Can’t wait to see what shows up this month.
What does everyone think of the teas? I thought the shade grown tie guan yin was delicious.
Yay, I just got my box this morning. I enjoyed the exposition on Oolongs and the descriptions of the teas… many happy days of tea acomin’.
