Give untill it hurts, they say...  
This is connected to no small amount of heartbreak on my part. I never thought it would come to this.

But as of the moment I have in my possession far too much tea. I can never ever drink that much tea in this or the next lifetime, and a lot of it is just standing around getting old. A lot of it is, in fact, already pretty old. And more importantly, I have found myself incapable of aquiring new tea without feeling guilty about it, and that's about the worst thing that could happen to a hoarder like me.

With a bleeding heart I will unhand some of it.

So, if you're interested in getting some, go look at my inventory here and see what I've got.

Some guidelines:

Send me an email at moreteadk@gmail.com with your request and your address and I'll see what I can do for you. I will only accept requests sent to this email, because if you comment to the post I might not even notice it. So please, if you're interested, send me an email.

Now, a vast amount of the teas listed, I only have samples or small amounts of, so if I get requests from more people than there's tea for, first person to ask for it will get it. There are also some where I'm unwilling to depart with all of it, in which case the same rule applies.

Some of this, especially the bagged tea, is very old and might have lost some considerable amount of quality over time. I'll let you know, if you request any of it, if it's old, so you'll know what to expect.

Please don't request more than five different teas. If you request more, I'll only send you the first five listed, unless in special circumstances. Special circumstances includes running out (due to the sample-sized ones) or if I only have less than a sample-sized amount of the tea. If special circumstances should occur, I'll let you know and we can talk about whether you want something in addition to it or not.

Finally, I'm sorry, but I won't send to Australia. Australia has some really tough rules as to what can and cannot be sent there in the mail, and while I have heard of some getting through, tea is on the list of things not allowed. It would simply be too much of a shame to have it confiscated, so I don't want to take that chance.

ETA: There's no need to offer me payment in the form of shipping costs or otherwise. This round is on me. However, if you still want to compensate me in some way, I wouldn't say no to an interesting trade. :)

And I'm very sorry, but this is cross-posted just about... everywhere.

ETA II: Six requests more is all I can handle presently, and I'll have to say stop. This has been a huge success and my thanks to those who are 'adopting' some of my tea. :)
