Official *What did you get in the mail today?* Thread!!!
My swap from VariaTEA came and my 52Teas order. Yay!
Got my Verdant $5 for 5 box today, as well as Tiramisu Oolong and Turtle Cheesecake black tea from 52Teas! Having a cup of the oolong right now and it’s delicious.
Also got notifs that my Lupicia order and my Fauchon teas from Vente Privee were put in the mail today, the anticipation!! Only took Lupicia five days to get it shipped out, yeesh…
Horaido’s Miyako-no-mukashi matcha came in the mail the same week as Marukyu-Koyamaen autumn matcha Tsubokiri. Very very excited about the matcha from Horaido, I have not opened it as of yet but I have been hearing this tea shop is very popular.
Horaido, my first time ordering from this tea shop in Japan, I really liked the service very much!
Seasonal matcha for the autumn, I ordered again from Marukyu-Koyamaen!
I received a lovely (not so) surprise package in the mail from dexter yesterday! I may have to explain to her what a few looks like though since i’m not sure she understands that definition LOL cupboard is up another 10 teas! hahaha thanks dexter!
woohoo! even though i SOOOO don’t need more tea, the BBB Box arrived today! complete with extra surprises from Terri and Tastybrew :)
Got two packages today! One from Lupicia, with seven teas, and one from Spices and Tease, with three. Thrilled with the first and a bit disappointed with the second – there was no free tea sample as prominently advertised on the website, and the tins were pretty little for being seven bucks each. But we’ll see how the tea itself is. So far all the Lupicia ones are great!
I was super excited to come home and find my swap from Courtney had arrived!! She sent me some samples from Tealish and surprised me with some Butiki teas which I have been wanting to try FOREVER!! Now I finally get to see what all the fuss is about!!
Package day! I got my Lupicia order as well as my Fauchon teas from the Vente-Privee sale. And a few other non-tea related packages as well, haha.
Jealous you got your Vente-Privee order already! I’ve been eyeing the tracking number hoping it’ll come soon but it looks like I’ll be waiting until Tuesday. :’( Enjoy!
Mine did a weird thing where it showed up at the post office without any previous tracking information, and the tracking is still showing that it’s at the post office even though it’s been delivered.
Some of my parcels from China finally got released by customs! They left China on the 1 and 4th respectively.
I got another Rizhao black from Tokai Verdant ( I have to open it to see if it is what I am expecting, last time I got it sent directly from the tea factory and they sent me a higher grade which was nice)
A Laoshan Black
Two different Lapsang Souchong
and a Xinyang Hong cha
The seller sent me about 50g of samples, a Rizhao green, several teas from Tan Yang and it looks like a dian hong nice.
This was from an aliexpress dealer http://www.aliexpress.com/store/730431
I got them on sale ( like close to 65% of what the current prices are and what was nice is they were in 50g lots)
I also got another Tan Yang and a sample of Moli Hua Cha from http://www.aliexpress.com/store/320842
