Cooking TTB - Looking for more cooks (and tea drinkers of course) box on the moveDo you love tea and do you love to cook? Well, I’m sure you can answer heck yes to the first one but not everyone likes to cook. You don’t have to be a top grade chef in order to join this box; just like cooking enough to submit a recipe. The recipe can contain tea ingredients, be a recipe that pairs well with a certain tea (in the box or not), and/ or it can be a recipe you just really want to share with us.
Listed below are rules and what have you. Let me know if you think I should add anything
~ Must be active on Steepster and post notes fairly often.
~ Every body likes to read the tasting notes from others who have sampled what they have in the TTB so please make sure to write a note for your samples even if it’s a quick I love/hate this tea.
~ This is for cooks so don’t join this box unless you are willing to submit at least one recipe.
~ The tea list, recipe list, and comments will all be kept in a google doc
~ Try to keep the box evenly packed. Don’t let the sides stick out but likewise make sure it’s filled to the same amount as when you received it.
~ To keep the weight of the box down I would like to keep the list online. If people wish to print out the list they are welcome to.
~ Replace the box if it’s broke. It’s not nice to send on a beat up box.
~ If a tea has a strong smell like lapsang souchong make sure to double bag or put in foil… something to keep it from ‘leaking’ into other teas
~ All teas must list the name, brand and steeping time (though it’s ok if it doesn’t because I know most of us here like to have our own steep times
~ Keep no longer then a week and if you need it longer please let us know.
~ When you are sending and receiving please update thread
~ Follow the people before and after you
~ Always confirm with them that you are ready for box and to send box when the time comes
~ If you for see a busy time where you will get the box and not be able to send it out please let us know so that we can send it to others first (I lost my first box this way =[ )

I want so badly to be a part of this box! Yes yes yes! I’m in California and can receive/send the box anytime :)
Huzzah. Between our boxs and all the others just starting up, I think we will quench our box thirst for a lil bit. hehe
I certainly hope so! I’m sort of hoping this will keep me from going too nuts during the Black Friday/Cyber Monday and after Christmas sales. Probably not….hahaha :)
Most of us will probably have that problem =D haha. Whenever we walk by a tea store I try not to go in and my husband is like, “You want to go in?” And I always give him this look and say, “Well duh… but… I really shouldn’t buy more tea…. but its so tempting… and your not helping.” haha
At least your husband asks if you want to….my boyfriend, on the other hand, does everything in his power to distract me and/or physically pull me away from those stores. He’s no fun. ;)
Me too please please please! This sounds amazing!! I’m in California and can’t do Thanksgiving and Christmas but am good other than that :)
Cute idea. I can’t participate but I’m looking forward to reading the notes & recipes!
For the record, I’m totally going to format all of our recipes into an actual cookbook at the end of all this….it’s going to go on my shelf with my most prized cookbooks :) Maybe one of our more artistic participants would be willing to draw up an awesome cover??
I would love to join!
I would like to join, if it’s open to Canada.
I would love to join! I might not be too good about mail around Thanksgiving and Christmastime through New Years though. If you think the box will still be making its way around in January that would be great.
Well, what would you guys think of getting the box going now and just letting people join as it goes along?
That should work great for me! The only upcoming travel I have planned is a 3-day business trip January 12-14.
I have a couple of teas on their way to me that I want to include in this box, so as long as I’m not the very first to get the box I should be good.
