+ ROUND TWO USA 'Here's Hoping' teabox - SIGNUPS now CLOSED for round two! USA only

168 Replies

I have faith that Veronica & the post office will be able to get this teabox back here (but PLEASE keep tasting as long as you want to, Veronica! No rush!) and it looks like yappychappy isn’t responding to messages right now, so…

Signups for round three have started in this thread:

Anyone who has already participated in rounds one or two are welcome to sign up again, but if you don’t sign up in that thread, I will assume you aren’t interested in round three. I’m not sending messages to people asking if they are interested in another round this time. It’s fine if anyone wants to skip this round, you’re more than welcome to join next time!

It might still be a while before round three is ready to go, but I wanted to start the signups process now. thank you everyone who has kept the teabox going! I’m impressed this has survived so well for two rounds!

My plan is to have the box ready to mail to Teasipper on Friday. I haven’t heard from yappychappy either, so I’m assuming he’s passing this time.

I’m having a great time with the box. It’s great getting to try so many new-to-me teas.

Sounds good :D

The White Shizandra came from Zhi Tea and the Green Blue Mist came from Simpson & Vail. I think BrewTEAllySweet put them in, but I had traded them to her before, so I recognize those

oh thanks Moraiwe – I’ll write that on the bags.

No problem! I figured it’d help whomever when logging :)
