Allo! I’m just here with an update. I’m hoping to have this on its way by mid next week. My schedule has been kind of erratic, but I’m trying to get through as fast as I can! Thanks!

Hey, I’m a bit confused about the order, and what happened here. Can anyone maybe explain it to me?

As far as I can tell this is the order for the remaining people on the list:

moraiwe (currently has it), Shadowfall, Fiddling, Shelley_Lorraine, BrewTEAlly Sweet, AureliaFish, Wheezybee, Emilie, Chelle, Chuckieroy.

Edit – My bad. I was just taking Dr. Jim’s list off of two pages ago. I’ve updated and taken TastyBrew out.

Dr Jim said

Shadowfall has the order right except that TastyBrew asked to drop out:

“TastyBrew said 24 days ago
I just did a massive tea clean out and finally have my stash under control. I think I have to pass on this box for now. Thanks!”

Bear in mind that there is a second box circulating (box C). It is currently at BrewTEAlly Sweet, following the same order.

The box went out priority last night and has a scheduled delivery date of 11/1. :) I sent tracking to Shadowfall, so hopefully she has it before the weekend!

I got the box already! Crazy fast shipping. I wasn’t expecting it until at least tomorrow. I hadn’t actually planned on leaving my apartment today, but then my Mom called and told me ‘a giant box arrived for you…..and it smells like tea’ I just had to go get it. My Mom had me open it there so she could go through it with me before I could take it home. Lol. Lots of awesome looking stuff in there this time. So excited.
Though by the time I got home it’s really too late for me to actually start drinking any of it, so I’ll be taking pictures of everything in the box and then start sampling tomorrow, or Saturday which I have off.

Yeowza! This is alot of tea. – http://tinyurl.com/AnothTravBox
How long can I keep this box? XD I think with everything I picked out, I’m probly gonna be trying about half the box, maybe more. (All the stuff to the left I want to try, with the middle pile being if I can get to it.) Lol! Good thing I’m off work tomorrow. /rubs hands together/

Offhand, does anyone know who added the Della Terra Oatmeal Raisin Cookie? I can’t find it on any of the lists or the few pages I went back here, unless I overlooked it. So I wanted to add it to the lists (which are getting long and messy….I’m considering retyping everything up. Or should I just leave it?)

Oh, and here’s a few bonus pictures of the box with my cat. I walked away to check on dinner and came back to her checking everything out. – http://tinyurl.com/AnothTravBox2
She wasn’t impressed there was nothing in the box for her though. – http://tinyurl.com/AnothTravBox3

I believe the oatmeal raisin was put in by Chuckieroy.

Alright. So an update on the box. This box was alot of fun. While I haven’t tried everything that I wanted to /eyes the pile of ‘maybe’ teas/, I’ve just about kept it as long as I should. Haven’t decided if I want to keep anything from it, but I’ve definitely given quite a few a try. I’ll decide for sure tomorrow and post a final update before sealing it up for the trip onward.
I’m hoping to get this sent out to Fiddling on Monday, but I got some overtime I desperately need from work, so my schedule is going to be a bit stupid in the upcoming week. Which is also part of the reason I haven’t tried near as many teas as I wanted to from this box. By the time I got home, it was too late for me to have tea and be able to sleep. Lol.
If I can’t get to the post office Monday, I’ll see if my Mom can drop the box off for me instead. I appreciate everyone’s patience.

Dr Jim said

Remember Veteran’s day. The Post office won’t be open until Tuesday, so get your overtime and an extra day with the tea

Whoops. I totally forgot about that. Lol.
Well, I won’t complain about an extra day with the tea.
