I tried it, very clever and similar to Ben & Jerry’s Ice cream graveyard. I cast my vote for a few revivals; have not tried their teas but seems likeable flavors.

Oops, vote once a day, just noted comment above. Will do!

very funny with individual listing; but one still must vote at graveyard. I cannot see how viewing individual link to cast vote. I went to original link above with the tombs.

Some of us need to get a life. Voting daily, let me know when stop.

I just linked to Steepster so people could find the tea descriptions quickly.

I wish they would list a little about each tea. But I voted for after midnight this time around.

Uniquity said

I don’t remember that one…I definitely wish they had a bio for each tea as I don’t remember what some of them were like.

edit: nevermind, updating the original topic.

Thanks so much!

Hey everyone! You can actually vote once per tea per day, so if you can’t choose just one, feel free to vote for more :)

I read as much at bottom of information with the little ghost like eons… All very nice, t’s fantastic. Thank you very much for this. I really do need to get a life, computer land is not real time living.

Voting ends on 10/31/2011.

Winners: Fantasy Island, Swampwater, Pink Flamingo, Cherry Blossom, and Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble. They will be returning sometime in January 2012 (see website).

If you’re curious to read their Steepster reviews, check the links I posted in the topic.

Herm. The only one there that excites me is Swampwater, but I actually still have a bit from last year. I do have a sample of Strawberry Rhubard Crumble somewhere – I shall have to give it a go and see if it’s worth getting more of! (Still very sad about Mojito not making the cut, though)

Tamm said

After looking at the descriptions I’m pretty sure that Swampwater would be the only one I’d really be interested in.

Agreed. That one is the only one I’d want to try. I was pulling for After Midnight because it sounded awesome and I’d never had it. Oh well.

Well, at least lots of people get their unique Pink Flamingo back!

Uniquity said

I liked Pink Flamingo (I think I even still have some!) but I still maintain it is simlar to Joy’s Teaspoon’s Wellness. Which I loved first. : )

Yeah, I have to say, I’m disappointed by the winners too. Seriously, Fantasy Island? Why not bring back a tea that was discontinued more than a few months ago? Ah well. Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble is awesome, though. We stocked up on a tin just before it was no longer available. Uniquity, if you don’t find your sample, let me know and I’ll send you some of mine!

Uniquity said

I’m guessing most of the voters were recent DT converts (though there were a few titles up there I didn’t recognize and I’ve loved DT for over a year and a half.) I’ll have to peek through my cupboard…if not, I’ll be in touch, Aisling! : )

Well I’m glad Swampwater is back and I’ve always wanted to try Fantasy Island. The rest though aren’t ones I’ll be running out to get, though. I found the Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble to be underwheming and the rest don’t really interest me that much. Oh well.
