This journal accompanies the tea bag exchange box.

1/9/09 - Wrote a few quotes in and sent it on its way! I hope everyone enjoys the exchange :)

1/13/09 - In response to sunfi's suggestion: I was actually thinking of having the box circulate twice, but I thought I'd let it go through all the participants once before before I made a decision about that. If enough people are interested, there's a good chance that that's what we'll do :)

1/24/11 - Box is ready to start on its second round. Please refer to the current list of participants to determine shipping order!

Journal Entry 3 by sunfi from Alexandria, Virginia USA on Monday, January 12, 2009
Just received in the mail today. I've already looked through it and taken and replaced. I'm planning on mailing it this weekend. Thanks for including me. My husband looked at me like I was nuts when I opened the box and found the tea.

Just a thought for Llednyl, what about having this circulate through the listing twice (two rounds) so that way those folks at the beginning and middle might get an opportunity to see what the later folks put in?

Wow - I was kind of astounded at how big this box is and how much tea there is in it! Have picked out some new & interesting flavors (to me) and put in about twice as many to replace. Thank you Llednyl, sunfi, oi-reader & WingedMan for so many awesome choices. This has been great fun. Now I will find something to write in the journal and maybe add some drawings/embellishments (tea-related of course). :=D

So this will be on its way to Bibliocrates in a few days hopefully - will post again when it's mailed.

Looks like we need a BC status that says "to be sipped"!

I found this box of tea waiting for me on my front porch yesterday evening. My mail is usually left on my back porch, so I'm not sure exactly when the box arrived. Anyway, thanks for posting it to me dancing-dog!

I have already helped myself to a handful of teas that I've never tried before. There were so many to choose from!

Twinings Black Currant Ginseng & Vanilla
Twinings Tastes of Summer Black Tea

WoW!! The tea box arrived safely on Monday and I've just gotten the chance to journal. My roomie, Katamat, jumped into the box before I could get my own hands on it. Now, my son, the tealover, is rummaging through and I'm hoping to sit down quietly with a cup this weekend and take my time making a few selections for myself. Thanks for allowing me to participate. I cannot believe ALL the choices!

Journal Entry 18 by wingdiscoveryloverwing from Wellington City, Wellington Province New Zealand on Wednesday, August 26, 2009
Wow, what an amazing collection of tea! I've been staying at Cafekat's place and have had the pleasure of drinking a few cups of tea from this box - got some nice ones, and one really interesting one! I'll write in the book before leaving tomorrow for New York :D

I hope that you don't mind that I still have the tea box in my possession. I have shared it with a couple other bookcossers just 'cause they happen to be sharing my space right now. I plan to go tea shopping to replace all the little treasures we have taken from this delicious little box.

So very sorry for the delay, but many people have enjoyed this tea box. While in my possession, several bookcrossers including, DiveAC, Discoverylover, katamat, CreativeMGE, and a few nonbookcrossers including my 15 year old son, have sampled and added a selection of new teas to the box. What a great idea and fun way to taste and enjoy tea that we may not have purchased on our own.
This treasure box of tea is now on its way to KarmelK.
Enjoy all!

Journal Entry 21 by KarmelK from Jerome, Michigan USA on Saturday, November 14, 2009
The lovely box of tea has made it's way to me
It came to my home, then took a trip to the dome
The grandson who's turning five caused us to take a drive
And now it's back home in the heart of lovely Jerome
I'll pick a few bags out, difficult no doubt
Then send it on it's way and enjoy a cup of Tae'

Journal Entry 22 by imawinn2 from Neenah, Wisconsin USA on Saturday, November 21, 2009
The Tea has arrived! WOW! Is all I can say. My youngest daughter has been picking out the ones she wants to try so now I'm next. I have a night to myself, so I will enjoy a little R&R and peruse the selection. I will send the box on its way ASAP although it may not go out until after Turkey Day.

Thanks Llednyl! This was such a cool (or hot) idea! ;-)

Journal Entry 23 by imawinn2 from Neenah, Wisconsin USA on Sunday, November 22, 2009
What an adventure in tea! My daughter and I picked out a bunch and I replaced it with a nice variety. Most of my personal stash of tea is loose leaf. I did, however, repackage the teas into individual tea bags, wrapped and labeled them. So whoever picks those out can just brew them like any other "tea bag" tea. I can usually get a couple cups of tea from one of those teabags. I also included a couple varieties that are very good for "ice tea". They are Blueberry Red Iced; Iced Antartica; and Lemon Myrtle.

I look forward to sipping the ones I picked out and I hope you can enjoy the ones I put in. Thanks for such a simple pleasure!

I really enjoyed being a part of this Tea Bag Exchange. Thanks much for hosting this Llednyl; it was great fun! If you happen to do another one, I'd really love to join in again!

Journal Entry 30 by BigKat from Bremerton, Washington USA on Sunday, May 16, 2010
Profound apologies all. I received the Tea Box and Journal and distinctly recall making a journal entry when it arrived. I must say the timing was great. I was in the midst of writing the initial draft of a major grant application ($54K) a process that was well fueled by all the delicious teas. On the day I sent off the initial draft I packed up the tea box and got it ready to ship. I set it out of the way so it wouldn't get lost or damaged intending to look up the next recipient and PM them. Of course, in the midst of trying to get caught up on everything I'd neglected during the grant writing episode I completely spaced finding the next recipient of the tea box. In fact, I didn't remember until Llendyl's gentle reminder. Unfortunately, by that point I was in the midst of approving final edits for the grant app and didn't have a lot of time. I did try to look up the next recipient but the journal wasn't showing up in my reserved which is what I thought I'd marked it as. Next time I had a moment I looked in TBR but it wasn't there either. Finally I tried All Books and it still wasn't on my shelf. That's when I realized I'd have to undo my careful packing of the box and fish out the journal which had to wait until today (Grant Application is finally in and I'm actually home for more than a whirlwind visit. Now that I see my previous journal entry failed to post I understand why I couldn't find it on my bookshelf. Most sincere apologies to you all. I've been a bad, bad, bookcrosser.

I've had a lot of fun with the tea box though. The children were having a ton of fun selecting teas for me to try while I was in the midst of writing. I started out trying to keep a record of what I tried but that didn't last very long. I took the box with me to a luncheon with my sister for our annual birthday get together and while the younger three played (her two my one) the older three (her two my one) had a marvelous time exploring the box and deciding what to try. They actually dumped the whole box out on the dining room table. We all had so much fun that my sister felt obliged to add some Orange Blossom white tea from her stash to the box. The children have also enjoyed discovering how effective herbal teas are for some ailments, tummy aches, head aches, tiredness, etc. It's been a delight to be included and we've had a lot of fun. And most of all I promise to get this in the mail just as soon as is humanly possible. And I don't think I'll seal the box until I'm sure this journal entry has posted.

Final word. The Tea Journal was coming apart when it arrived. I've done my best to repair it. I hope you all enjoy it.

And if you take a sniff from different corners you get different scents. Amazing how they blend together to form something totally different and wonderful. Just like Bookcrossers!

My youngest daughter and my neighbor helped pick and choose teas while we sat at the table trying some new teas I had just picked up from the Fava Tea Co. My neighbor threw in several packets of Numi tea while I threw in an assortment of teas I bought at Fava. Again, I packaged up my new assortment of loose leaf teas (Blood Orange, Cho-conut, Spicy Pear and Spicy Ginger)and then added some sachets of Cinnamon Spice tea. Hope you all enjoy the wonderful flavors that have filled this box. :-)

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

This had so many great teas in it! I loved taste testing and adding some teas I hope everyone likes. I loved the idea of including a tea infuser for those that didn't have one, to use while they have the box, though I already had the exact same infuser.

I have a question though. I can't figure out the brand name of one of the teas. The teas are loose leaf but wrapped in foil and contain enough tea for a few steeps. One is called Ti Kwan Yin oolong and one is a green tea. To whomever added them to the box, can you PM me the brand name if you know it? I really loved the oolong and want to know what it is! thanks

Tried contacting 'allthesepieces' and never got an answer but their profile says they didn't want to be active with BC as much anyway. So I sent this out to 'moochew12' today with delivery confirmation. Hopefully Llednyl will switch them so moochew12 can try again with allthesepieces.

thanks again to everyone for keeping this going!
