“It’s light, but that may have been due to my water / tea leaves ratio”… could very well be, I would have personally used approx 4oz. I love samples and am VERY greatful for free ones, but it frustrates me when they are so small that they don’t even make a full cuppa. On one hand that would be less tea for me to waste should I hate it, but on the other it makes me do math!

Yeah, I couldn’t gestimate 4oz of water since I had an infusing basket in my cup and I figured the tea leaves would absorb some of the water. I think I might just make it with my ingenuiTea next time. I marked off 4oz on it. I’m glad the samplers are tiny. I mean I would have preferred it closer to a cup, but I can sample several of them in one sitting now. I wish more companies would sell tiny samplers like this. Like four samplers for $1 or something like that.

Liking that idea, Ricky! That is the one way to really try a diverse amount of tea from the company and find the one that strikes your fancy – but at a minimal cost/cupboard space/waste – as long as the correct steeping parameters are also included for those not inclined to do math or are new to this whole loose tea business. Mount a campaign – I’ll sign a petition!

Hmm. My samples haven’t arrived yet and I’m told they were mailed week before last. I should probably give up on them…

Ricky

Haha, technically couldn’t we all just purchase all the teas (the smallest or second smallest size) from a company and split little samplers among ourselves? Take The Simple Leaf. It’s like $85 to get all their tea 1oz samplers. If we do a .1oz per serving… that’s like $8.50 per person to try all their teas. o.O Something like that. It’d still be easier if companies did this for us. Petition!!! Tea Party Strike!!!

Sometimes the mail has hiccups especially when it comes to international stuff. I received a package from china once two-three months after I placed the order.
