I hate to ask this here, but I’m not sure where else to ask: I’ve got a question or three involving a purchase, and there’s no easy to locate ‘email this address’ on the store pages, and I have had no luck with the ‘live chat’ button. Where can I send an email to check on some stuff/possibly change a shipping address?

Hi @Mikasi! I responded to your message through our chat system on August 3rd, did you not receive it? In it, I updated you with info, that we wouldn’t have access to the pins until we were back in the office this month. The merch is being sent to my new address here in Oregon and I’ll be able to fulfill the order when it arrives. I’m happy to refund you the cost of the pin as well, in appreciation for your patience. Again, apologies for the delay, but we haven’t had access to the office in the city since March. We sent out emails regarding outstanding merchandise orders in May, including your pin order.

Ah, probably didn’t get it then. I think I had left that message via my phone, and my email has been stupid recently. Thanks for responding to my post. I really didn’t want to drag anything up ^^;;;

Anyone else having trouble accessing the main AGP shop and the store page? It doesn’t seem to want to load for me.

Trying to get into the main page and other non-forum pages was taking forever/doing the 504 time out at one point last night.

@AG_Catherine do you know anything about this?

edit: It did finally load for me once but as soon as I tried to click on another page it wouldn’t load again.

I do not, but I’ll look into it! Might need an update on our end.

So my tablet broke during the most eventful forum week ever. I was thinking of all of you the whole time, I really miss this world when I can’t be a part of it.
Good news is I have a new tablet. Bad news is its too old to run Discord. So I guess I’m going to be a forum only person from now on.

Hey wonderfuls - sorry I’ve been out of the loop for a while. September kind of raked me over the coals - lost my job and subsequently apartment. Ouch. I don’t say that to whine because good things are afoot, but I haven’t abandoned the Mounties - I might just be MIA for a couple more weeks before I get things situated again. :heart::heart:

Take care of yourself Fox, we’re (theoretically) not going anywhere (can’t always trust magic :wink:).

So I hear y’all like tea. My roommates have a stash of so many tea bags so I have been trying out different flavors. But my problem is that it’s just so watery? I made chai one morning and added milk with the water but then it just tasted like milk… Anyone have any tips? Or good things to add to tea? Also @Fox sent me a glazed lemon loaf tea bag that was soooo good

Hm…if you’re using a big mug, maybe try just filling it less (or use two tea bags at once)? Pre-bagged tea should say how much water to use, and it’s probably less than the capacity of your mug. I think steeping longer would still oversteep the tea and make it bitter, rather than make it stronger.

Hm I explained wrong… not like the tea isn’t strong enough, I just don’t like that its not thick? Like thick like coffee or lattes? Tea is thinner, its too watery. Do people add milk to tea? Is that a thing?

Ohhhh like physically watery. I guess I don’t really have an answer to that…I drink my tea without anything added, for the most part (with the exception of sweetener for some particular teas) and it is pretty much just leaf-y water :joy: Adding milk is definitely a thing though, and that’s maybe where brewing it stronger would help keep the milk from becoming overpowering…like brewing your coffee extra-strong if you’re pouring it over ice for iced coffee!

It’s probably a bit of tea blasphemy (or evil genius :steve:), but I recall adding some liquid coffee creamer to some bagged chai once upon a time. Italian Sweet Cream was best, but French Vanilla works, too. Still pretty watery if you don’t put too much in, but… :ascendershrug:

Also works great to give packet cocoa more body.

Also! I think some more traditional chais are brewed directly into milk! So you could try that too! I’ve never tried it myself, but my instinct says that the steeping time and amount of liquid needed would change, so that might be something to look into further.

I almost always add cream (usually half and half or light cream) to my tea, I find it makes it feel richer than milk! I used to make my tea with milk but then I went to college and for no reason whatsoever, it was easier to get cream than milk and now there’s no going back because it’s maybe the one thing college has done to improve my quality of life.
