I hope that the option to double up has not been depleting stock too quickly!

OK, no more participants. Thanks to everyone who has checked out this OTTI round.

If you did not get in, you can still see what members are saying about the teas from Thes du Japon.

Everyone should have received a confirmation/payment info email from me. If you did not, please let me know immediately! Thanks.

Good news, lots of participants this round ... bad news, not everyone who wanted a 2X will receive a "Double." However most will.

I am sending emails to those who will NOT receive the 2X in the next 15 minutes. If you do not receive this email, and you requested 2X, then please pay for the 2X ASAP.

Got it? :mrgreen:

Thanks!

I am still ... "accepting payments." :mrgreen:

Please let me know if you did not receive a confirmation along with payment directions.

I will begin sending out payment received confirmations ... tomorrow.

Thanks everyone!

I figured this was the easiest way ... for me. :mrgreen:

I have received everyone's payment except one who I already contacted. So, consider this a corporate confirmation of everyone's payment! Thank you for your prompt payments! So, we are moving along smoothly.

A few participants had indicated wanting to 2X, but paid for 1X (I think because "you" did not know if 2X was available to them?). I will be contacting you individually to see which you actually want.

I have decided to keep all the tea and use the moneys collected for a Tea/Teaware binge! :twisted:

:mrgreen: OK, maybe not. All teas are in the TeaFridge and will be pulled out a few hours prior to opening on the day of weighing/packaging/etc. This may be Wednesday or Thursday of this week. I endeavor to plan it so it can all be completed and shipped on the same day ... tough one to pull off however. :shock:

Hm, I thought I had posted this already.

Last week was particularly wet and humid around here, so I decided not to open up all the teas and expose them to that. Instead, the plan is to conquer this either Wednesday or Thursday of this week.

I will post here when the packages are shipped!

I will then also update the brewing suggestions post near the beginning of this topic.

Speaking of humidity, that was a whopper of a storm. I probably missed a post somewhere else where Chip describes his harrowing experience... hope you and the Mrs. made it through okay!

It wasn't too bad here, but I did lose power until today...!
