The teabox has arrived. Thanks everyone. I will say though… I might be switching to a slightly bigger box because I was already planning which teas I wanted to add. I guess a teabox has to be a good balance of a) a nice variety of teas b) the right weight to mail it… so the teabox isn’t too big or too small. Just explaining the science of the teabox… don’t mind me. :D

Also, I can’t find info anywhere for the Special Tea or Murchie’s teas? Hmm

This Murchie’s? I have some of their maple teas.

Yeah that one. Okay… maybe it wasn’t Murchie’s I couldn’t find? I don’t know.. it was late last night. haha

I just saw the rule to stick to a week with the box. I’m sorry it will be a bit longer than that. I will try to get a chance to get to the post office within a week or two.

Since I don’t have a lot of time around my work schedule for these things and this is my (longer) weekend, I have gone through the teabox. I removed single serving samplers from most things that interested me (2 to 2.5g depending on the tea type) leaving that tea in the box if there was still ample leaf left. I removed the teas that only had a single serving left (I’ll sip them down to clear up space) or that didn’t have at least a 2g serving remaining after taking one serving from them to free space. I removed perhaps three other things for some collection cycling/space.

I can only go to the PO on Mondays I have off from the library, and those days only come in three week cycles. Since today is one of those days, I’m going to try to get the box out today so I won’t hold it up all the way until the 31st, which would be my next Monday off in my work cycle. I just have my little 2g samplers stashed so as to not hold up the flow, hehehehe.

Thank you so much, guys!
