According to my tracking info, my package is out for delivery today. I’ll let you know when I get it (usually in the late afternoon) and if everything looks good inside. I already know I won’t be getting one of the teas since I already got a partial refund :(

Just got my package! They sent my order in two of the Priority mail bag things (which I was hoping they would be mailed in a box, since I don’t want to know how crushed the teas are now.) So each priority mail package is $4.90. So shipping totaled 9.80 for them. I paid $12 something so the difference in shipping was only $3. I don’t mind. The discount on teas was worth it. The packaging of the teas are in foil zip bags (some of them have a papery outer cover though). All the teas I ordered were in stock AND they sent two samples of other teas. I’m sipping the Creme Earl Grey tea right now, which was the one tea I was worried I wouldn’t like and it’s good! So I’m very pleased with this order. And thanks for all you steepsterers for posting all these great deals all the time!

I think sometimes the cost of packaging is tacked onto the shipping cost, which makes sense and could be why there’s a bit of a discrepancy.

Got my box today, and everything was in order! Shipping was $4.90 and I paid $6, so about $1 for the ‘handling’ part of it—not bad at all!

Got my package as well (how funny we got them all on the same day). Since they were out of the original tea I wanted, they refunded my money, but gave me extra samples. Thanks guys :)

Darn, they deleted all their teas on their site so now I don’t have pictures (or better descriptions) for the teas that are not yet on steepster! Oh well.

You could take your own pics and post them.
