Received mine today. At the moment I am quite content to leave them unopened and admire. I do like the boxes, although my ‘Gandalf the Grey’ box came crushed in one corner. I will however not get to admire the presentation or taste of ‘Bilbo Baggins Breakfast Blend’ as quarantine has it and the price to have it heat treated is far too excessive compared to its worth. :(

Did these teas come shrink-wrapped, or just taped at the sides?

I received my tea last week. I haven't tasted it yet, but the boxes look beautiful on my bookshelf! :)

Many thanks to Jeremy and the guys from Mint Brook Meadow Teas!

Michael Drout (here http://wormtalk.blogspot.com/2010/05/ ... -acceptance-our-huge.html) says this:

"I am in the very home stretches of the final proofing and indexing of the new edition of J.R.R. Tolkien's Beowulf and the Critics but I notice that the publisher has put 2011 as the copyright date, so I guess it will be out after Christmas. It will be printed primarily in paperback, but I'm trying to convince the publisher that there would be interest in a collector's edition if they can make it leather bound or otherwise really nice looking -- the last time I checked the out-of-print edition was selling for over $150.00 on Amazon (and what's really sad is that I have no extra copies to take advantage of this price).

The Tolkien book, The Tower and the Ruin, is moving along in parallel, and I'll be switching to a primary focus on that one soon. As part of the process of writing it, I'm going to be recording a new Tolkien audio course, significantly different from my Rings, Swords and Monsters (also sold as Of Sorcerers and Men) that I did for recorded books. The new course will be called something like Tolkien and the West and I expect to do the recording in the beginning of July. Then I'll teach Tolkien this fall, testing out the chapters of the new book in class, so that that book will probably go out for review in December (though it could go earlier).

And Tolkien Studies volume 7 is mostly at the printer and needs only final proofing of some sections. We had some snags this year and are a little late, but hopefully we will still be out in July as we usually are."
