After some discussions of the logistics and such, I've decided to organize and launch a new Pass Box for the flavored tea lovers out there (yes, the red-haired stepchildren of the tea world
As the host of the box, I will be contributing several blends to get the party started... but, I'd love to offer the largest variety of blends possible to the participants. Several other Signature Blend creators have been contacted privately and are interested in helping me "seed" a box with a variety of blends. Blenders who have signature blends they'd like to promote will now have the chance to "show off" their star blends... and participants will finally have a chance to sample some blends before buying a larger tin.
In addition to our own contributions, Adagio has generously offered to contribute a big variety of Signature Blend samples for inclusion in the box... thank you Adagio! And thanks also to Chip and Xine for helping me orchestrate the whole thing.
If others of you who have blends would like to include a sample or a full-sized tin in the box, please PM me and let me know what you want to contribute. I must receive all blends for inclusion in the box no later than April 4th... if your blend arrives to me after that time, it can't be included in the box as I am hoping to put the box out on Monday, April 6th to the first participant. If your blend arrives late and misses the box, you can Paypal me the postage and I can return it to you if you like... but the moral of the story is... have it to me by April 4th! Contributions can be sent to me directly from you, or you can order a blend from Adagio and have it sent to me (handy if you have extra Adagio points to use for purchase).
Questions... Feedback... all welcome. When I know the final details from Adagio, I will post another thread to sign up participants, subject to the usual pass box rules... more to come.
