I just got my box today :) Yay! So excited!!! Now comes the wait for December 14.

Dustin said

Wait?! Pshhhhh! I got mine today and was so excited to try 52teas for the first time that I opened a pouch. Drinking a cup right now and it’s delicious! I’m totally cheating, but there is a reason for it. I can only drink one cup of caffeinated tea a day and I also got David’s advent calender so if there is a day when I don’t have caffeine with one, I know I can fill in with the other. Same with decaf. It makes more sense in my head than it does typed out.

Cheater! =)

On a more serious note, I wouldn’t advise divulging the contents of the pouches before their date—I know one or two folks here on Steepster who might hunt you down and harm you for posting such spoilers. LOL.

I hope mine comes soon!

Unfortunately, my roommate and I will have to open it up early too, as we won’t be together for most of the holidays (I think she leaves town on the 16th?) However, I plan to write offline tasting notes and post them on the appropriate day :D

Last year there was a big discussion about when it was appropriate to post the tasting notes. Kind of tickled me.

Kittenna said

LOL perhaps I should look that up! My assumption would have been, don’t read your dashboard on the day a packet is supposed to be opened prior to opening your own unless you’re looking for spoilers :D

Em said

Yes, please no spoilers. I like the idea of the surprise on the day. I will be avoiding steepster for those 12 days unless I’ve had that day’s tea :) This is so fun!

So you guys don’t want to hear about Wet Concrete for day 13? The tea tribute to all the blue collar workers out there? It’s a little gritty for my taste, sits kinda heavy in your stomach and leaves your mouth a little dry. If you leave it in your cup to cool it will solidify, but you can make your own keepsake ornament if you leave an impression of your hand in it as it dries. I’m giving mine to my mom for Christmas.

Kidding! I’d have to open all the packets to know if Wet Concrete was in there or not. :P

I’m not going to spoil anything! I’ll just sit here in my cheater’s corner happily MMMMMMMing it up before y’all!

I think you should message me the flavors so I can decide if I actually want to buy the box or not ;)

Also LOL about Wet Concrete! That’s actually a flavor my boyfriend might enjoy, though, as he is the superintendant in charge of concrete at his job site hahahaha ;)

Dustin said

I will say that I have opened 7 packets which all smelled incredible and have tried two teas so far. One I liked alright, one I really liked and I’m super excited to try the rest. I think if you like flavored teas, it’s a good purchase.

I bet your boyfriend could blend some of that tea himself at work!

This is quite exciting!

We aren’t fans of flavored teas—but we greatly respect your work 52. And it’s obvious that many others respect it as well. :-)

I received my package a couple of days ago. Like all Yule gifts, you are allowed to shake them and sniff at them — but you can’t open them until the proper time. I can wait… I think.

At last check there were still a few left! I hope this is still true when I get paid Friday!!! It sucks only getting paid once a month!!!!

I don’t get paid until Friday…will you have more or are there really just 3 left??

I thought I would order some other teas on Black Friday and cyber Monday to make up for the fact that I didn’t order this. I ordered wayyy too many other teas and I still want this. I’ve not tried any of 52 Teas’ blends but have wanted to for awhile. That justifies the purchase, right!?

Em said

YES! I think you should order it right now :) Join in the fun!

Josie Jade said

I broke down and ordered it. And some of the doggy tea to put in my pup’s Christmas stocking. :)

Em said

:) Yay! I’m really looking forward to the Steepster talk those 12 days :)

Josie Jade said

Me too! So excited to finally be trying some 52 Teas’ tea!

Uniquity said

I don’t even have one and I’m excited for the hubbub! It’s so cool to think of Steepsters across the globe sipping on the same tea. : )

Only 2 people can order before Friday so that I can still get one! A $2,000 property tax bill has sent my finances into a tail spin but I finally get paid again!!!

Dustin said

That is lame. The government keeping you from filling your tea drinking dreams! I’m sure there is a metric ass ton of tea party jokes in there somewhere.

Lame is a tame word to describe it! ;) It’s because we bought new construction so it’s some sort of loophole to get us to pay extra taxes or something. Who knows. I’m just grateful we can pay $900+ now and 900+ in April or I’d really be weeping! Maybe if that was the case Frank would send me a complimentary Weeping Angel tea… or would that be rude?

SOLD OUT! Womp womp! Better luck next time, I guess! :(

My 12 days of Christmas box made it’s journey across the pond and arrived this morning, thankfully it escaped customs :D I will find it hard to wait 11 more days before I can open them but I know it will be worth the wait. :) Thanks for speedy shipping Frank.
