Official *What did you get in the mail today?* Thread!!!
This was actually yesterday’s mail, but I got my Compass Teas order! So much new tea – they included an extra 12 hugely generous samples that I wasn’t expecting at all!
And I’m pretty proud of myself – I tried to hold out on ordering until the 26th of February but I made it within 2 weeks – that’s more than I expected of myself if I’m honest, haha!
Unexpected samples are awesome!
My Zen Tea Life order and my giant swap box from Yssah!!!
Yesterday my new batch of Red Leaf matcha arrived! Caramel was the only re-purchase, and the other three are Black Cherry, Banana and English Toffee. Matcha saturday!
My Red Leaf samples came! Yay! It is snowing and I was almost out of plain matcha, so now I have a great excuse to drink lots of matcha today!
My Red Leaf Tea order came today! Now I get to try out some flavored matcha! But first, work. =(
My Ovation order arrived Thursday night. Along with a pound of Raspberry Lemon Black tea, I got one Yoyo Bodum mug and a milk frother. :) I’ve been frothing everything even if it’s not for a latte. weeee!

52Teas-Strawberry Ru\hubarb Pie
Della Terra- Captivating Crimson Orange
The Strawberry Rhubarb is to die for, so tasty, and the Walter Bishop is really growing on me!
Oatmeal Raisin Cookie
Lemon Lime Tart (enjoying now, pretty delicious)
the lemon chiffon is delightful- I was wondering if the lemon chiffon and lime chiffon are very different, and which of the three is best?
PS: If you haven’t tried it yet, I think lemon chiffon is best with a splash of milk to enhance the creaminess.
The Lemon Chiffon is delightful, Artp! In my opinion the Lemon and the Lime are very close in taste, but the respective lemon/lime does distinguish them from each other. They are both soooo yummy that I’m not sure I would place one above the other. YES, that is exactly the way I enjoy them and they taste just like a very caloric and tasty dessert!
Is the Lemon lime tart very different?
The jury is out on my first cup. It was really good, but the flavor seems lighter to me. It may have been in my preparation though.
