The tea gods have smiled upon me today!

My box from BrewTEAlly Sweet! You are so kind and generous!! Thank you so much. I am excited to try all of these. Especially some of the samples that you included!

My box from Josie Jade! Thank you so very much for all of this! I’m so happy that I will get to share these with my parents when I see them.

My order from 52Teas: Sadly… missing one of the two Marshmallow Treat Genmaicha packages that I ordered, but, still containing Graveyward Mist. I’m… not sniffling… I’m not! >_<!

My ‘To heck with it! Let’s use up all of my Adagio points’ order:
8 oz tins (barn), 3 oz tins (daffodil), and some free samples

My order from Aroma Tea Shop!:
A gaiwan, a chahai, and the cutest tea strainer holder that I have ever seen!!

The set together:

I got my Golden Moon order, which is great except that instead of my Sugar Caramel Oolong I got Snow Sprout white tea. Have contacted Golden Moon so hopefully it can be fixed soon.

Dinosara said

A+ for customer service! I already got a reply and the sugar caramel will go in the mail tomorrow.

Oh good :) sugar caramel yay!

My Verdant order: Laoshan Village Chai, Qilan Wuyi Oolong, Da Hong Pao, and a free sample of Mi Lan Xiang Phoenix Mountain Dancong (yay!!).

Alright! So glad to hear your order arrived safely :)

It arrived a day early. Such a pleasant surprise to come home to!

Love getting Verdant packages – see that’s only 4 new ones – that’s under control. ;)

My samples from Adagio came into today. :) I bought Gunpowder green tea and Christmas and Irish Breakfast black teas. My dad thought I was nuts when I ran in dancing with the package and quickly opened it to take a peak (and a sniff).

Tea is beautiful.

-Dark Roast 10 Year Aged Tieguanyin
And refills of my fabulous
-Golden Fleece
And
-Laoshan Black Chocolate Genmaicha
And they threw in a sample of Qilan Wuyi Oolong ha ha. I drank that a couple days ago from the classic club box:)

I got my Zen Tea Black Friday order. Getting scared as they start to trickle in. I am so not allowed to buy any more.

I have two more packages on the way (in addition to the two I already received), and my stash has already sky-rocketed. It’s as if my Black Friday sipdowns were futile.

Dexter3657 said

LOL yeah I can relate to that. I didn’t do pre Black Friday sipdowns, and I initiated several swaps recently, and I kind of went insane over Black Friday weekend… I’m not even sure anymore but I’m thinking I have something like 70 teas still on the way to me. I’ll be back in the hiatus group. NO MORE BUYINGLOL
If you received two and have two on the way – I think you’ll be fine. Four orders is conservative – took advantage of the sales, but didn’t go insane. I’m saying good job, enjoy the tea, don’t feel the pressure of “how much you have”.

Sil select said

dexter…sooo i shouldn’t mail you the box i have for you?

Dexter3657 said

LOL sil – it really doesn’t matter, now or later – my cupboard is out of control what’s a “few” more. Just be warned though, because I have mountains of fun stuff coming, I’m sure lots of it will shared with all my wonderful swap buddies….

I got my Black Friday laoshan gift set from verdant! Unfortunately they forgot to put in the campfire blend I also purchased, but I have no doubt that will be rectified. I love the tins for the gift set!

Frolic select said

I’m jealous, looks like mine just got put into the postal system today but it should get here pretty soon.

Sil select said

jealous! i so wanted to get that set..

What? Oh no! My apologies, TastyBrew – we will get that out to you immediately. What else can I include for you to make up for the oversight? Please feel free to PM or write to support(AT)verdanttea.com so we ca resolve this ASAP.

No worries Lily – I already emailed Kelsey and I’m sure she’ll set me up! If you feel like throwing something extra in there, I’d love to try a sample of the Sichuan Caravan! Thanks!

You got it! Thank you, TastyBrew

Got my Black Friday/Cyber Monday orders from Della Terra and Harney& Sons! Looking forward to some tasting adventures. Unfortunately no samples in either box .. maybe next time :)

Got my box of tea bags from Josie Jade Thursday. Already enjoyed a couple of those (& to my surprise, Hubby has had 2 without my prompting)… and I thought he wasn’t interested ;)
