I really never thought I would love a floral tea so much. It’s nice pick-me-up for this afternoon. I have just about enough for two more cups. I may have to make a 3rd Butiki order. Steepster is getting to me! :-)

Also… I’m thinking of starting to swap, but what kind of packaging can I use to swap swap tea? Just regular plastic baggies? Is there something better I can get so I can parcel out samples of larger amounts of tea that I have?

I use the snack size ziplock baggies. Sometimes I double bag them if they’re strongly flavored and might contaminate other teas in the swap package.

Butiki is a hard one to stay away from. I’m always wanting to order more right after I place an order. The free samples keep me coming back too. I’m sending you a pm about swapping :)

Thanks, Stephanie and Shelley!

Dollar stores and craft stores have great small sized bags as well…and later if you’re really keen you can get the heat sealed ones….

Why didn’t I think of the dollar store?! The ones by me have some crazy stuff, so they just might have something that I could use for swaps. Thanks, Sil!

NP. It where I get my bags and bubble envelopes and where I found little plastic containers for matcha

I run, I sing, I drink tea. That’s the best description I have of me.

I’ve always enjoyed tea, but have just started trying out a lot more loose teas and varied brands. I’m really excited about a site like steepster so I can read about what people think about different teas.

Oh and I really hate Lipton tea. There’s something just awful about it and I can’t understand why nearly every local diner only has Lipton.

Also I’m on the search for a full-bodied, fruity blackberry tea. So if you have any suggestions feel free to throw them my way! :-)
