Ballet Recital Fundraiser!

Well, my daughter’s ballet recital is coming up, and so I decided to put up a few tea samplers in my tea shop to sell to help raise funds for this cause!

Mocha.07I currently have four different samplers available.  There’s the Steepster Select sampler which offers a sample of all five teas that came in last month’s (December’s) Steepster Select Box, plus a bonus of six random samples from my stash.  There are FOUR of the Love with Food sampler boxes available, which offers a minimum of 20 samples for just $17.50.

Then there is one of the Knoshbox Samplers that offers a minimum of 40 samples for $30. and the Extra Large Knoshbox Sampler that offers a minimum of 60 samples for $45.

You can check out all of these samplers here.

These samplers not only help me clear out my excess stash, but, also will go to a good cause!  Thanks for stopping by!

The All-New End of Year Clearance!

Greetings Everyone!

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything on this blog!

But, it’s time for me to clear out some teas!  I’ve recently updated my “Products” and added two Knoshbox Sampler Boxes (big boxes!) and one Love with Food box (small box).

If you’re looking for a great way to get your hands on some tea samples from various vendors, check out my shop!  Want an idea of the types of teas you’ll get?  Check out my recent reviews on SororiTea Sisters … or you can check out my cupboard on Steepster (although, I must admit that it’s been a while since I’ve updated it!)  And I do take requests!  I want the boxes to be something you’ll enjoy, so you can let me know some of the teas that you’d like to receive in your sampler and if I have them, I’ll include them in the box.  No guarantees on what’s available, but if I’ve got ‘em, I’ll share some with you!


End of the Year Clearance!

Hello Everyone!

I recently posted two new sampler boxes in my shop.  One is a smaller box – the Love with Food box – which holds a minimum of 20 teas (probably closer to 25 … or more!), and one about double the size – the Knoshbox sampler – which holds a minimum of 40 teas (probably closer to 50).

If you’re looking for a great way to get your hands on some tea samples from various vendors, check out my shop!  But better hurry, I only have one each of these boxes right now!

A New Sampler Box is available!

Introducing my Knoshbox sampler … which is about the same size as the sampler box formerly known as the Foodzie Box Sampler of Teas.  So, it will hold about the same number of samples – which is a minimum of 30 … more like 40 or more!  Right now, I only have one Knoshbox Sampler available … but, it’s not the only sampler I have available!

Looking for something a little smaller?  Say hello to my Little Sampler!  This box is a 6x4x4 box that is loaded with an assortment of samples.  How many samples?  Well, a minimum of about 15 samples fit in this box, with the actual number closer to about 20 samples.  I currently have two of these boxes available.

More sampler boxes will be announced as they become available, but for now, I only have these three.  I will probably have a couple more in a month or so!


More Samplers

Well, for the moment, just one more sampler.  I have a box that is sort of like the foodzie box, but a bit smaller than that was… but only by a little bit.  This box will hold at least 20 samples in it, probably more.  And you can order this sampler here.

I will be adding a couple more samplers in the next week or two, but for now, this one is it.  I have been BUSY busy BUSY doing stuff for my daughter’s wedding, which is in just a few weeks, so I need to keep my time management in check, which is the primary reason for the limit on the samplers.

Lots of different teas – black, white, green, herbal, Oolong, maybe even some pu-erh and yellow teas might be in there – all for one low price.  It’s a great bargain, but it won’t last!


ONE Foodzie Box of Samplers available!

Hello Everyone!

I’ve added one Foodzie Box of samplers to my shop, and that’s all I have at the moment – just one!  So, if you’ve been waiting to get one of these, you better hurry!

The samples in this box are all teas that I’ve reviewed (either on Steepster, SororiTea Sisters, or The Tea Review blog, or a combination of these).  As these are samplers and limited to the teas that I have on hand, I cannot guarantee what teas you’ll receive, but I CAN guarantee that you’ll receive at least 30 different teas – black teas, green teas, white teas, Oolong teas, flavored teas, pure teas, tisanes, maybe even some Yellow and Pu-erh teas too!   It will be a really good selection.

These are not 100% customizable, however, I do want to put together a box that you’ll enjoy so if you tell me the kinds of teas that you like best, I’ll do my best to focus on that.  Also, if there are teas that I have in my tea cupboard on Steepster that you’re interested in trying, please let me know and I’ll do my best to include those (I can’t guarantee that my cupboard is 100% up to date).  Also, please let me know if you have any allergies to any possible ingredients, so that I do my best to avoid those … and if there are certain ingredients that you dislike, let me know that as well, and I’ll do my best to avoid those too.  Again, I can’t make any absolute guarantees that certain teas will or will not be in the box, but I will do my best to create a box that fits within your specifications.  It’s my goal that you are HAPPY with the box you receive!

Again… I just have ONE box available right now, and I don’t know when I’ll have more.  So, if you want it, better grab it now!

A Quick Update …


I just wanted to compose a quick post to let you know that my Foodzie Box of Tea Samples is not available at this time.  When I brought it back on the 18th of May, it was with an inventory of three boxes and those are now all sold. 

I will probably open up sales on the boxes again at the end of July, with an inventory of just two boxes, so if you are really chomping at the bit for one of these, watch for when they come available again and grab one while they’re here!

Thanks to everyone for your continued support and help with keeping my inventory under control!  I appreciate it greatly!


Back in the Saddle Again …

Forgive me, Aerosmith, for using the title to one of your amazing songs.

I am back to offering my Foodzie Box of Tea Samples.  But, I only have three boxes available at the moment, so if you want one, better not hesitate!  It probably will be at least another month before I get another box.

These are going to be the only samplers that I offer for the time being, but I want to be able to reuse these boxes rather than utilize a new box from the postal service.  The whole idea behind my selling the samplers is to help rid my storage of the boxes (and of course, the extra tea I have!)

These boxes hold a minimum of 30 samples (sample sizes vary, but there is generally enough tea from each sample to make at least one pot of tea), and usually the number is closer to 40 samples or more.  If there are particular teas you’d like to try, please check my Steepster cupboard, and convo me to let me know what you’d like to try.  I’m in the process of updating my cupboard now, so I can’t guarantee that everything you find in my cupboard will be available, but if I have it, I’m happy to share it with you.

These listings have been set up for US shipping only, however, if you’re an international customer interested in one of my sampler boxes, please convo me and let me know.  I can set up a special listing for you after I’ve calculated postage.

Thanks to all for your support!


Temporarily Suspended …

Greetings everyone!

Well, normally when you hear the word “suspended” … you probably think something bad.  You know, like, suspended from school or work.  But, in this case, suspended is good!

I am temporarily suspending all of my sampler boxes.  Why?  Well, because I’ve had a pretty good run of sales and swaps lately, so, I’m running LOW on tea!  Can you believe that?

Don’t get me wrong, I still have PLENTY of tea to keep me busily doing reviews, but most of these are small samples with not enough to comprise another sample to include in a sampler box.

And the key word in “temporarily suspending all my sampler boxes” is temporarily.  Trust me, I’ll be back, probably within a month or less, with an updated tea cupboard on Steepster, and more sampler boxes.  I hope to reinstate the big box of samples at that time … only instead of using the flat rate box, I am going to look into the regional boxes.

Thank you all for your business and your support.  I can’t tell you what it’s meant to me … and how it has helped me to get my tea stash under some semblance of control!

*happy dance!*

A Quick Update…

Greetings Everyone:

Just a quick update to let my customers know… I’m temporarily suspending the “Big Box of Samples” aka the Flat Rate Box of Samples.

The main reason for this is that since I closed my tea blending/flavoring business, I no longer stock boxes, and I just used the very last of my Flat Rate boxes that I had in storage.  I can, of course, pick up one or two of these boxes at my post office very easily the next time I visit, however, I have an abundance of the Foodzie boxes in my storage at the moment.  And I’d much rather fill these up with tea samples and send them out to new homes than to get a new, unused box from the post office and fill it up.  In other words, I’d rather be recycling/upcycling than using a new box.

And you know what?  The Foodzie Boxes full of samples are quite a bargain … a steal really!

I do hope that I’ve not inconvenienced anyone with this decision.  As soon as I’ve managed to sell a few of the Foodzie Box of Tea Samples, I will reinstate the Big Box, but for now, I do hope that if you came here looking for the big box, that you’ll consider ordering the Foodzie box instead!
