Let me tell you...it takes a long time to go through a pound of tea and when you like a wide variety of teas, one pound of each one will last a REALLY long time. So I happened to send an email to Harney's to see what they would say to offering smaller quantities of loose tea without the tins. Surprisingly, they said they are easily willing to do that...it just takes a little longer for the order to be filled. I'm fine with that! The only thing you need to do is either be REALLY specific when ordering online...or just call them on the phone and order that way. I think I found a new way to fulfill my tea fetish. :-)
I definitely plan to sift through all my empty tins and make a list of what I need to fill them back up. I just have to make sure its not too expensive a shopping trip. ;-) On that note though, R confessed earlier this week that it seems like his "pain threshold" for spending money is about $500. Hmmm...$500 buys a lot of tea. If he's not bothered by a purchase under $500......
Just kidding...as I said...$500 of tea is A LOT OF TEA! I don't think I could drink that much tea in the next decade. I'll be floating if I tried to drink that much.
That's my little random thought for the day...one of many of course. :-)
