You Cannot Be Serious!

Some very kind friends sent me a variety of tea bags from America and amongst them was the most yummy tea I have ever tasted.

Chocolate mint oolong tea by Stash.  Yum.  I thoroughly recommend.  If After Eight’s were a tea, this would be it.

Having finished my tea selection, I decided to buy myself a box as a reward for my “lifestyle change” – 18 whole tea bags instead of alcohol, butter, refined sugar and reduced carbs.

Relatively easy you would think….

….. until I saw the postage.  Holy cow!  So I phoned them up to ask if they could perhaps reduce the charge and use Royal Mail who just charge a blanket rate no matter where in the UK.

I mean does a tea bag seriously need a courier and yes, I did ask this question.

Apparently it does.  Well, surprisingly this internet company lost the order and probably many more.

To get over my abject disappointment, I popped over to Bergli Stud to take some photos of their gorgeous Shetland ponies.  I did the posh stuff and then enjoyed watching the little curries bounce about!

I love it when I capture them flying too.  This little lady moved beautifully.

So I am still ranting about the postal charge.

    Blimey…I had a look too and it is £6.99 inland…truly awful…I was going to offer to bring some up next time we came, but at that price postage just to get it to my door I don’t think so, sorry!

    Did you try Amazon or even ebay? You might get better shipping costs…or you could google the tea, and see if any local shops mights have it.
