Clearing out my personal stash!

Hey guys!

I need to clear out my own personal stash and make money for classes. I’m selling “Tea sampler boxes” on Etsy, here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/104341844/tea-sampler-box

It’s similar to the recent sale from iHeartTeas (thanks for the idea!). Please let me know if you have any questions :)

How sad to have to sell tea! You should start a “nobody should have to sell their tea” donation site. I would donate to that cause! In fact, I’ll go buy some tea to help you out! :)

Emilie said

Thanks! :) Maybe we could start a charity to give tea to those in need of it! Haha.

Sorry that you have to sell your tea. You really should have used Tea Trade, because it’s more economical (it doesn’t cost so much in the long run to sell things there!)

Oh, never mind… I just noticed that you’re a seller on Etsy too! Cute little piggies!!!

Emilie said

Thanks, I love the little piggies. I have a ton of them haha

You should set up a GoFundMe.com and we can donate!
Heck if every steepster gave five bucks you could maybe keep your teas! :)

I haven’t even heard of that before! I’d feel kinda bad just taking people’s money, at least this way they get something in return.

Oh man, so tempted. Why is everyone putting tea boxes to tempt me???

Can we select a flavor/tea type preference? Is what you have in your cupboard representative of what to expect?

Emilie said

If you put a preference, I will try to match it as much as I can. It will include things from my cupboard, but there is a lot of other stuff that I haven’t added to my cupboard yet that can be in there as well

Babble said

Okay, I ask because I saw a lot of Davidstea in your cupboard, which I am interesting in trying since they don’t do samples. Do you think you would include a lot of those in a package or are you holding onto those?

Emilie said

I am trying to hold on to those a bit more, but I have big enough portions of them that I can include some samples if you’re interested.

I got my tea yesterday! Sorry I didn’t let you know sooner, we had some ant issues that needed to be dealt with (both my puppies got bit with red ants in the backyard so we had to get organic pet-friendly sprayers out here ASAP). I just posted a review on the Vanilla Chai and am looking forward to tasting some of the other flavors you included! Thanks so much :)

Emilie said

Oh no worries, I’m just glad that you’re enjoying it. Poor puppies, red ants are no fun at all :(

Are you shipping to Canada? It doesn’t say, although it does show the conversion in Canadian dollars.

Emilie said

I actually didn’t have it shipping to Canada. It costs $13 to ship those flat rate boxes to Canada and I figured people wouldn’t want to pay that for shipping alone

$13 isn’t too bad for shipping. Roughly how many teas can you fit in a box?

Emilie said

Eh, it depends. On the other two, I mostly sent larger nearly full bags and I could get around four of those in, with lots of little samples. But I could get lots and lots in if I put in all or mostly smaller samples. It depends if you want lots of each type to try, or lots of small amounts of different teas. If you’re interested, I can edit it to ship to Canada.

I’m definetly interested, I’d have to wait till pay day (tomorrow) to do it, but yea if you’re willing to change it for me, that would be great. I think I would prefer slightly more tea & fewer varieties.

Emilie said

No problem! Make sure to mention that in the note, since I might not be able to tell who you are on Etsy

Got mine on Monday and totally forgot to mention it here—that has to be the fastest I’ve ever received a package (paid on Sat, got her Monday!). Great selection, I’ve already tried a few and am looking forward to the rest.

Emilie said

Wow! I sent them out the day you paid I think, but for it getting there fast, the post office must have been working some magic that weekend! I hope you like, or at least enjoy trying, all the teas :)
