'Samurai' Traveling Tea Box!!!

86 Replies

Tea sipper, one of the teas caught my attention and id love to swap something for the cinnamon apple french toast if you have any left?

Hey! Welcome to steepster. At this point, cinnamon apple french toast is on the older side and I really only like swapping fresher teas so anyone is actually tasting the tea that they should be tasting. But I definitely would suggest ordering some over on svtea.com. I’m guessing you will love this blend and would love to have more that a sample anyway. Simpson and Vail has a ton of lovely teas, I’m usually not disappointed. And we will see what happens with a round two of this teabox.

I am working on my cupboard – I have about 50 teas, but I would love to get involved in the next round of teas traveling. I live in Wilmington, NC, USA.

That’s sad to hear :( I didn’t even open or try the Hawaiian herbal one and it arrived to me without spilling. Was there any evidence of customs inspection? It is also weird that the mystery tea spilled because it was 100% sealed when I shipped it off (I double checked because I didn’t have a thick baggy to send it in-I ran out). Maybe I should have double bagged it.

The box did have a cut in it, so perhaps not inspected, but definitely went through the ringer. It’s no biggie! Just wanted to be honest with everyone.

What the heck postal system? sigh.

Count me in for the next round (if there is one)! I’m in Austin, TX now.

We will see what SkySamurai wants to do about a second round. :D

If not, no biggie! There will be other TTBs, I’m sure. :D

P.S. – Edited my first post, it was meant to say “for the next round”. Oops

AHHHH! Awesome. haha I’m glad you tried and it’s good to see Steepster is actually improving.

Steepster has been much better for me over the past few days, I don’t know if anyone else has experienced that?
