Hmmm.... Like Oolong Box? Now, that's an idea :idea: !


Ok, in response <ouch> to the gentle <ouch> nudging of Tenuki and Russian Soul, and the hoards of other people hounding me to sign up (4), I am announcing the first OOLONG BOX PASS! Thank you to Eastree for his idea and for all his work in laying down the initial guidelines.

-DISCLAIMER-
This box is made up of a collective of different people’s teas and therefore is not in anyway affiliated with Adagio, TeaChat or its representatives. Nor does Adagio, TeaChat or its representatives accept any liability for its contents, or the loss there of. By signing up and agreeing to participate, you are in agreement and understand this disclaimer.

How it works:
I will start the box pass and send to the first person on the list. You will try some of the teas, add to it your own contribution (not required but encouraged), then mail to the next person on the list. You do not have to put a tea in for each one you take, but please be fair and considerate of others. Please don’t take all of one tea, unless there is only enough left for a single brew.

At the end the last person will send back to me. At that time we may begin another pass, or have a contest for the remaining tea.

Rules and Guidelines:

Who can Participate:
USA residents only please.
Established members

Deadline:
The deadline is Friday, June 13th.

Shipping:
Ship by any means you would like to the next member but I would advise a tracking number.
Please PM the person you are shipping to and let them know the package is on the way.

Packaging:
Please handle the tea carefully.
Teas that are scented or flavored should be double bagged.
Please make sure to carefully label your tea.
Include brewing instructions if you wish.

May I be last? I am very new to oolong, TKY is pretty much it (although it is one of my favorite teas!). I would not have much to contrubute to such a box (except for the afore mentioned TKY, from Adagio, which I am sure everyone already had).

I hate to be a mooch, but I want to explore oolongs more and I am sure that you guys who are such huge fans will be able to add a great deal of wonderful tea to dive into!!

Sure, not problem. That's the whole idea, to share and for people to try oolongs they are not accquainted with.
