hey all!! im sorry for the avoidance, i’ve been dealing with a recent death in the family. the box came back to me as a return to sender, which was an error on my part. I’m sending the box back out again tomorrow, with extra tea in it because of all of the hassle involved from me! sorry again guys!

Another bump to see if perhaps anyone knows where this box currently is or what’s going on now?

What a great exploration that was. Totally worth the wait. I have put the box I the mail and it is on its way to Short Sorceress.

It came in yesterday, but I haven’t had a chance to crack it open yet. Hopefully I’ll be able to start posting tasting notes tomorrow morning.

awesome looks good. My doctor has asked me to pretty much stop flying so this will be perfect timing.

I made sure most of what I added was caffeine free so you’ll have plenty of tea to choose from :)

So excited for the progress of the box! As an update on myself, I was recently diagnosed with ADHD and was asked to go without caffeine for a while and see how that affects me. So, the more caffeine-free tea that comes to me, the better. But it’s not a big deal at all.

Thank you to everyone for your continued work to make this a great experience for everyone that’s still waiting.

If you see anything in my cupboard that you would like me to add Artp let me know. I’ll be sure to put some caffine free stuff in for you

I’ve received the box! Was downstairs doing my pregnancy yoga and thought I heard the door ring. My husband ran up the stairs to go check and there it was! Christmas in April! I’m so excited!
