I totally agree with the original post. Some of the blends sound interesting and would be interesting to try, but I'm not willing to pay for four ounces and possibly get stuck with a lot of tea that I don't really like. I think I can understand how it's not efficient for the company to provide samplers of custom blends, but I think it would be nice to allow the creator of a blend to buy one sample tin of it. This would help the creator find out if it's what he/she wanted it to taste like, and go back and adjust the blend if not. Is there any chance of this being done? Personally, I'd probably be more inclined to try making my own blends if I could buy a sample of it when I made it, and I suspect I'm not the only one.
