Well - I guess my postcards were in a mailbag that got shoved onto a plane pretty quickly. They should start to arrive in other parts of Canada and the US soon..... Thanks for the comments, all.
Rachelle, ask for a care package with Red Rose tea in it, or at least try a few different brands. I tried and tried to tone with tea and kept getting MUD. I was using a cheap no name brand as I'd heard that cheap tea had more tannin. Then I did a test with a few different teas and Red Rose was the best of the ones I tried. It beat out the high-priced specialty teas and the no name brand and the one with Sanskrit on the box.
