Variety Tea Box Auction - Last day!

Update: Here’s the Ebay auction! On for 7 days :) http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=221216052215

Hey guys!

So I just laid out all of my tea on the couch to re-organize and there is some that I will never drink. I’m not talking old teabags, I mean maybe some Verdant tea from the tea club that I wasn’t keen on, a bunch of flavoured matcha that I’ve only tasted but isn’t my favourite, etc.

If I was to compile a package and post it on Ebay, would people be interested?
I wouldn’t want to make a set price, just get some bidding started so it would go to a good home. Of course I would also post a list of everything included so it wouldn’t be a mystery box.

Anywho, is it worth the effort? Would any of my Steepsterites be interested in this sort of thing? I’m crazy short on money so I don’t have enough to swap it all away, but I think this could work if you’re into it.

Thoughts? Thanks loves!! <3

Not sure, but would love to know. I’ve swapped a bunch but have extra I’d prefer to sell too to clear out some.

If you post a partial list it might help with interest. Judging by your pic on FB, there may be a bunch that I’d be interested in.

I’m curious about the flavored matcha, depending on the amount of tea your inclined to include and the price range your thinking of, I might be interested.

Mystery boxes: I think those could be fun and I could certainly stand to expand my horizons when it comes to tea.

Thanks ladies! Absolutely, I’m working on a list but am at work right now – I’ll post amounts of tea and what kinds will be in the box sometime before work tomorrow. All I know fo sho is that it won’t be samples, they will be nearly full bags, a lot of straight tea, some examples of companies are Zen tea, peony tea s, Verdant tea, Red leaf tea (ranging from60 g bags to 20g flavoured matcha), and 52teas! As for price, I would start the bidding super low and whatever people want to pay they can pay :-) even if it’s 20 bucks I’ll be happy they’re going to a good home!

I’ll definitely get an exact list tomorrow!

Would there be an option for a straight out buy?

I would love to buy any Red Leaf and 52 Teas you have!

I’m not too sure about a straight out buy – I will try to come up with a price and maybe have a “Buy it Now” option, but I would like the whole package to go to one (maaaybe two) person. people. haha grammar!

Anywho, the reason for this is the lack of money situation – aka paying for shipping to many people, so in a way it’s like buying a “mystery box” with teas from many companies, but instead of a mystery you know what’s in it! That said I will be throwing in tons of “mystery tea” samples but those are just on top and for fun because who doesn’t love mystery samples? Anyways I’m babbling now, I should probably go to bed – but I’ll be back tomorrow with an updated list and a better idea of what platform to sell with! Maybe something else instead of Ebay, but I like the Ebay idea just so everyone gets a chance at it rather than first come first serve. Still babbling now. Goodnight friends! Thanks for your questions!

Edit: also no pressure everyone! If it doesn’t end up selling it won’t be the end of the world <3

I asked about straight out buy, because like if it was 30-50, I’d willingly pay it. (Though I cannot remember if Paypal lets you pay with gift credit cards, I seem to remember that you can, though of course I could be wrong.)
Wow, pretty much all of that list I’d be interested in!

I think its an awesome box. Since I am new to tea something like this would be great. I am very interested. I couldnt figure out how to message you, but please post when you put it on ebay. You can message me as well. I see in your profile that you are located in Halifax(area) as am I so possible pick up to save on shipping.

Thanks
