The BBB Box arrived from terriharplady today. along with a SMALL verdant order that i placed. However…i foresee my cupboard being up close to 300 again now thanks to the “extras” terri tossed into my box. Imma kill that woman! lol

Nice!

Sil select said

nooooo i was almost under 200! Now i’m staring at mountains of tea on my dining room table…with plans to be stealing more from Kittenna tomorrow as well lol fml. talk about first world problems lol

Zeks said

Send her something back… :) perhaps twice as much samples … :)

Ha ha. Well at least they’re probably mostly only a cup or two each. I found myself with an insane amount of each tea and like 300 of them. The purge felt good. Now I will only buy small amounts of each tea. Crazy how much I used to buy of one flavor of tea, even before trying it! Ugh. Live and learn.

Sil select said

Zeks… oh she will be getting a box all for herself back…plus whatever i put into our BBB box for the group lol

TB – sad part is, my cupboard IS purged…and i have only been buying .5oz or 1oz things lately… only thing that might save me is that i’m putting together a sample box of black for omgsrsly’s brother and for genushumanusalice down under.

Boxermama is getting a brand new box all to herself with things from the BBB box and our shared orders lol

My swap from Courtney came in! Yay! A few Harney&Sons teas I haven’t tried, as well as some chocolatey ones.

I’m a bit jealous. She managed to ship it at the letter rate, while I always end up having to pay for a package when I ship things. I’m not so good at this, I guess. :P (need more practice?)

Thanks for the swap though! I’m very excited!

Sil select said

I’ll teach you silly…

Cavocorax said

Sounds good!
I imagine it’d help if I used larger bags that would squish out flatter, and didn’t double bag them (bc that adds air pockets…)

OMGsrsly said

Suck air out with a straw?

Courtney said

I have perfected it haha. And the ladies at my post office are awesome! I do push as much air out as a can, and sometimes just use a bigger than necessary envelope to have more room for flatness.

And, perfectly, my swap from Sil arrived today too! Excellent timing – I’m settling in for a looong night of depressing work.

Sil select said

that’s pretty funny :) If there’s ever anything else you want to try just toss a note my way – not opposed to sending random teas places heh

Thanks!
