Alright, mail’s actually going out today because I was feeling meh yesterday.

btw try to give the tracking numbers you’ll get to the person you’re sending to. I’m pretty sure they are useless 9 out of 10 times but it’s worth a shot.

does anyone have opinions either way on how to get addresses? would you rather I send you each the address of the next person now or wait until you’re sending it out? you can either ask me or the person you’re sending to.

I prefer to get the address ahead of time just in case. I am also going to message the next person to confirm his/her address. :)

I cannot believe how much tea is in this box! I don’t really have that much time to look through these teas today since I have work in an hour, but I am post call tomorrow so I will have time then. (last night shift! woo!). I should have these teas sent out to the next person by Thursday or Friday!

Ellyn – I am not sure if you checked your inbox, but I sent you a message! I don’t want to send it off yet until I hear from you :)

momo said

No worries about not naming everything, a little element of surprise is good here!

Ellyn select said

I replied to the email this monring. Sorry I have been MIA its been a little crazy here… i’m excited to back to normal life. :)

The box is on it’s way to Ellyn! I am glad you are doing okay!

Ellyn select said

We have hit a snag! The post office says that the box has been received at my house – but I don’t see it! I checked ALLL the places the post-lady could hide it. I left her a note this morning and HOPEFULLY she will be able to help….

Oh no :( I hope the post-lady can help figure out what went wrong! I def sent it to the right address too.

momo said

I hope it turns up! I had something they claimed to deliver on Saturday but it was nowhere to be found…today I actually got a notice for it being at the office.

Shmiracles said

i’m figuring that no news is bad news…?
i’m almost afraid to ask about the TTBb, so sad…
it barely had a chance to live!

Did you happen to check with the post office? Maybe it is there instead?

hello Traveling Tea Box: Group B!!!
i am back from holiday and have several wonderful new teas to add to the box! i can’t wait to taste and share!!

Shmiracles said

also i will inevitably take lots of pictures of the TTB and post them on instagram because i am obsessed with both tea and instagram.

Shmiracles said

ALSO
someone posted on TTBa for requests of teas to add…
so yes, if you wanna look at my cupboard and request that anything be added to TTBb just let me know! request away!

momo said

Yes pictures! I always forget to do starting ones because I’m so involved in my tetris skills of fitting as many teas as I can in the box.

UPDATE!!!! My husband just called me as I was driving to work and said A PACKAGE from the RIGHT PLACE at the RIGHT TIME just arrived! IT IS THE TEA BOX! It was left on our front steps sometime between 11PM and 8AM this morning.

I AM SO EXCITED! I had just started making a new package. I will go through the box, enjoy it, and send it on its way.

Thank you all for bearing with me!!!!!!!!! I can’t believe it just showed up!

Shmiracles said

HOLY CRAP!! it’s a TTBb miracle! a beautiful brilliant tea miracle.
so glad to hear the news! Yay!

Kittenna said

Yay! That sounds kind of like it was delivered to the wrong house and someone found it and hand-delivered it?? Either way, great news :)

Awesome to hear. At least it didn’t get there after you made up a completely new tea box!

YAY! A tea miracle for sure!

OH MY GOODNESS!!! I am so happy! :) It definitely sounds like a tea miracle.
