Do we send single packets of tea or boxes?

user605 04/26/2006 #

Marga, We post boxes.

I totally read that wrong!! I just sent a whole envelope full of tea bags!!! I will send out the boxes... woops!

user992 05/ 1/2006 #

I just sent an envelope full of tea bags too! Ohman, I can't read!

Pushed wrong button - still need to see who I send to - can someone help me?

Were the requirements for this swap changed after they were initially posted? When I signed up, there was no mention of "whole boxes" and I was under the impression that we were only swapping 5 bags of tea each. It seems like several other people thought that too...

I think I know what happened! Did the original text say "packets" instead of boxes? I think the swap hostess (correct me if I'm wrong) lives in Finland ... and "packets" might mean something different there than here, or something like that. That's probably why the text was changed after ... right? :D Because "boxes" is what was meant originally even though it said "packets," which is ambiguous to some people?

(Just guessing...)

so, in the end, do we need to send out whole boxes? I too was under the impression we were sending packets....seems like sending 5 whole boxes can be quite costly, especially if sending to another country.

user1142 05/ 8/2006 #

so for the final say, do we send whole boxes of tea, or just individually wrapped tea bags?

I sent out 5 whole boxes, but I just had to send to the US from Canada (and I mailed mine from the states anyway.)

Thank you so much to my partner who went ahead and sent 5 WHOLE boxes of tea to me--they all look so yummy. Despite the question of how much we're supposed to send, I'll go ahead and mail out 5 boxes as well. Please forgive me for taking a while to do this though.

Oh, No! I guess I should have logged on more often. I just sent what I thought was a cute little tea time package, and saw all these posts when I came to say I finally sent me items 3 days late! I was thrown by the "packets" too! Sorry! Please let me know the final verdict! Kristin

I rec'd an awesome box of tea from Sara today. What a super surprise!!! Thanks for the great selection of tea, I am familiar with one of the brands (Tazo) and really like it. Thanks again.

user992 06/ 6/2006 #

I'm still waiting on getting ANYTHING. Anyone else in the same boat?

user624 06/18/2006 #

ae4me 07/ 4/2006 #
