In the Spirit of Holidays - Added info
Azzrian, What a thoughtful gesture. Has anyone sent you a package of tea recently? If not, is there some way you can send me a PM with your address (and can someone tell me how to know when I get a PM and how to retrieve it)?
I may not get this done before Christmas since it’s sort of a mad rush now, but I’d love to send you some surprise tea just for being so thoughtful as to do this for everyone.
You are so sweet to say this and make this offer. Perhaps after the holidays we can do an exchange with each other but trust me I really do not need more tea – its just fun to get boxes in the mail lol.
Thank you so much for the offer but yes actually I have received some very unexpected thank you’s in return. :)
Also so sorry for the very late reply but I had no email for 3 days so my notifications are just now rolling in.
No problem. I’m following you now, so if you get a chance, send me a message (I’m sure I’ll figure that out soon too!) with an address I can use to send a package. Even if you don’t need more tea, it’s always fun to get a surprise! One warning, I drink a lot of flavored black tea, so my samples probably aren’t as sophisticated as you’re used to, but a surprise can be fun anyway. I like the willingness to share that is evidenced by so many people here, and am happy to participate even if only in a small way. :)
Argh, it drives me batty when I don’t have email or access to the internet or the connection is wonky.
I think to try for some samples if not too late. I purchase my own teas when I can but truly I have no income for doing this. I snag money from husband and i swear the collection folks and banks have it in for me (watching every penny i spend) I mean they do things in revealing my life; I see this in all aspect of my life and it is sad to say.
Let me know if you are still sending teas…oolong and green teas; tea bags are best; but a beggars can’t be choosey.
Thank you, have a happy holiday!
I will be getting back to sending out boxes after the New Year. I think I am finally catching my breath. :) I will PM you when I have your box ready to send out! :)
ah, im always the last to know! if you have any more teas you are wanting to give away, pls send it my way. if not, it’s ok. i just had to try :)
i can’t see a button for messaging you, Azzrian. maybe you have to follow me first so the option will appear?
Another package has been mailed out … I have PMd the recipient. Next box locked and loaded on my desk to be filled as I work through my stash! Look for update in the hopefully near future :)
Are there any more teas to be sent out? I’m up for trying some new and different ones.
I still have 7 people on the wait list – mostly in Canada – once I send those out I will update the thread for more people. Right now I am just playing catch up on those who have been waiting since before Christmas lol I am a little behind :)
Keep an eye out on the thread though as once I have caught up on those already listed I will most likely be reopening the list OR starting a new one which I would let you know about.
Another Package going out tomorrow. Lynxiegrl has been sent her tracking #
More coming as I have funds to pay for shipping. :)
Azz – given the majorly sucky inscrease in postal rates to canada, if it’s extremem to send something my way, please don’t feel you must. I’m still in awe of how much it increased. :(
Ouch is it really that bad?? Honestly I have not sent a package to Canada in so long I have no idea what the increase is.
usps seems to have doubled the cost, at least from what red leaf and butiki have seen. Might be different if you can get it into an envelope or something but it might be pretty bad even for swaps
Well now I feel even worse it has taken me so long to get all of these out!
Well a lot of the Canadian’s live close to each other. Maybe I can send one larger box to someone who can give everyone else or most of everyone else their teas. I would label what was for who etc.
Well, Sil and I are in pretty regular contact, for one, but I’m not sure who else might be around? I don’t know who is on your list, haha.
I’m not sure were everyone else is but im close to ottawa on. But no worries if its too expensive. Its crazy how much the prices went up!
Haha, no worries – what people have written in their sidebar is not always accurate. I had just gotten the impression that she lived in the States :)
oh Azz, you are cool whether you send out packages or not (hugs)
and im really based in the Philippines ^^ just visiting my family in California til the end of March
Awee thanks! :) I am actually working on a box right now so since your box is being shipped here in the US I will get this one out to you before you leave! I will be sure to send in plenty of time for you to get it.
oh, oh, oh! i didnt say that like it’s a deadline – my family does want to send me a box or 2 of stuff annually so no rush. i used to discourage them from doing so but now that i have tea… ^^
but it is a relief to know that you are delighted to share your tea and the load so it is not a burden :)
