I’ve posted in this thread http://steepster.com/discuss/10885-herbal-ttb-round-2-sign-ups-open. But it appears that most of those involved in the discussion months ago have not posted on the site in a while. Is there any interest out there for this or another type of TTB?
Sure I would be interested as well.
Roiboos and Yerba mate going to be included?
I imagine both rooibos and mate/guyesha could be included. I myself avoid mate (due to caffeine level), but I don’t see why it couldn’t be included since it is a herbal. If Kayla/OP is no longer active, perhaps we could put this together ourselves? I have quite a few teas to put into the box.
It seems we have 5 people interested. Who wants to take the lead to be the first one and how do we decide the order?
Well the boxes tend to grow a bit. So you need someone with alot of herbals to start the box and seed it. Then that person would decide the order from the starting location.
I have a load of teavana roiboos but not much else in the way of herbals, so Im not a good person to start it.
The variety starts once the box has made a few trips around the group. For example, I have a half a pound of teavana coconut roiboos, which is actually really good, btw.
If I sampled 4 teas at a total 40 grams. But finished none of them, then replaced it with 40 grams of T/R.. then over time and visiting people the variety would grow. Even though I only replaced with one tea. This is my understandings of how the boxes grow.
There was previously an Herbal TTB that made the rounds. I have fewer herbals now than I did then, at least fewer that haven’t gone stale by now.
