Any chance that I could be put right behind GeekGirl? Without knowing what my money situation looks like I'm a bit apprehensive about participating, but since she and I both live in Portland the shipping would be cheap and I'm thinking that the worse case scenario would be that we could meet somewhere in town for a hand off (if she doesn't object).

No objections from me, but for shipping purposes, wouldn't it be better to put you before me? since I don't mind shipping it on to the next person on the list. :)

Ok ABx, GeekGirl is right, I did a switcharoo for you!

That would be so cool if you could meet up!

That's indeed what I meant by 'behind', thanks :)

GeekGirl: I can PM you once it's here. If you want to meet up it could be fun.. maybe get GeoffK or another Portlander as well :)

I still need addresses!!

I think we need to close this box pass.

Therefore by the power vested in me (which is none)
I hereby declare this Box Pass Closed to new participants.

Guys, I haven't sent the box yet. The reason is I'm not satisfied with one of the oolongs I had planned to send so am roasting it. It's a Shan Lin Xi from Teahome, and has been open for a year, so is stale. But I know the tea quality is good and don't want to misrepresent Teahome with a stale tea so trying to resurrect it. Almost there.....

Pict tomorrow, then mail. (if this next roast cycle doesn't work I'll just not include the tea...)

Box Pass Photo #1

Postby tenuki » Jun 19th, '08, 16:40

Here's the seed, should be enough to get the box started.. packing/mailing as we speak.

This box pass is a godsend, my tea area was getting so I was stacking samples. lol.

I would like to propose we leave a gaiwan in the box at all times for people to play with. Obviously everyone has to agree to that. ;D

Funny sidenote - When I told Shuiwen what the tea was for she wouldn't sell me the Traditional Ali Shan I had been planning to send. She said 'Those people brew american style, they won't understand that tea. don't waste your money on them.' ROFLMAO. I took her advice and just got some for myself. ;)
