tea for oobees?

now here's a bit of an odd request/proposition - does anyone in the US (or canada) want to trade some tazo tea for a custom oobee? i fell in love with berryblossom white tea while i was in canada and am down to my last three bags. when searching to find somewhere to order it from online, i discovered that tazo is also still producing my very favourite tea in the world, om, which i haven't been able to find for over 5 years! now i'm almost desperate to get my hands on some. i tried to order it from amazon but they won't send it to australia (it can be tricky getting tea through customs here but, according to the pamphlet i picked up at the post office, it should be fine if it doesn't contain any seeds or fruit pieces, which these ones don't) so i got to thinking that perhaps a bit of bartering might be in order... i have two custom oobees up for trades, at the barter of 4 boxes of tea each. one oobee for 4 boxes of berry blossom white, one oobee for 4 boxes of om - any taker?

and thank you all for your well wishes this week! now i'm relaxed and all warm and fuzzy feeling : ) to ruthie who asked whether baxy is coming on the trip, sadly no, although we did consider it! he's going to a lovely doggy bed and breakfast to hang out on their couch and play with their small dog. i'm so happy we found this home sitting service after his terrible experience spending three days at the kennel last year, it's going to make my trip so much more enjoyable to not have to worry about him. and to julie - the roses are pretty much getting by on their loveliness, they barely smell at all. i have some gorgeous, HUGE, yellow ones in the front yard though that more than make up for the peachy ones lack of odour!

  4. mmm, I love OM too! Let me know if you would like any extra tea. I think I need to commission another Oobee since Gabe's is pretty tattered after many washings and being dragged EVERYWHERE. I swear I could do one of those roaming gnome commercials with "oobee"!
    p.s. LOVE that your posting all the time now! (even though I might not be as good)

  11. I've not heard of the Berryblosson White Tea, but it sounds delish. I live in Portland, where Tazo is based, so if those above have a hard time finding it for you I would be happy to take a look. Just let me know!
