rant time!

I have some exciting news to post about sometime soon, but first, I need to rant a bit.

Thing the first: Why must the cheapy tea companies use hibiscus and rosehips as a base for darn near everything??? I mean, ok, they don't put it in their green teas, or their peppermint or chamomile, but in any fruity type herbal tisanes, they're right there at the top of the ingredients list. And anytime I buy an herbal blend with them in there, it's ALL I can taste. If I wanted rosehip tea, I would BUY rosehip tea, dammit! I want my tangerine orange tisane to taste like tangerines and oranges, not rosehips. I guess from now on I am going to have to buy all my herbal teas from slightly more upscale online places.

Thing the second: Is it just me, or are most cell phones and cell phone batteries pieces of crap these days? My cell phone isn't even a year and a half old yet, and it won't freaking hold a charge anymore. And I'm not ordering my iPhone until sometime this summer, when the new model comes out, so it's rather frustrating to have my phone go dead at the worst freaking times. Argh!

Thing the third: I placed a tiny (seriously...it's a ring and a 1" pocket goddess figurine) order with gryphonsmoon.com the other day. My order came to $26. So why the HELL is it going to cost $18 to ship it to me in Canada??? What the heck is wrong with the US postal service? Put it in a bubble mailer and toss it in the mail, that'll cost you like $3. Grr!
ravnsdaughter: (tea)
I am looking to order a sampler pack of tea from somewhere online. I've ordered from Republic of Tea before, and while they're great, I want to order from somewhere different this time. Can anyone recommend their favorite online tea retailer please?
