My Della Terra order from Black Friday made it today – nearly 4 weeks after they sent the email saying it had shipped. Also, when I opened everything up, one of the foil packages had split at the bottom and nearly all the tea was loose (a lot fell on my floor)…

I’ve emailed them though about replacing it. Relatively bummed out though; it was the blend I was hoping to take on my vacation in four days.

Awwww, bummer. Shipping is super unreliable this time of year with all the holiday madness. I had some tea get held up for many days once shipped for no apparent reason recently too. Hopefully there is enough tea that didn’t spill to give you some to take on vacation. DT is pretty good with customer service. I’d be surprised if they didn’t help you out with the open bag. Unfortunately once it ships they are at the mercy of the shipping gods as much as we are on the receiving end. :(

I’m not really upset about the shipping time; it makes sense because of the time of year, plus Canada post had that thing with thousands of parcels being delayed.

I do think the package splitting is not from the shipping though, and more from a defect with the foil bag. It split right on the seem of the bag. At the very least, even though opening my package resulted in a large mess on the kitchen floor to clean up it smelled really really good! So, that was some consolation ;P

I received a delivery notification card in the mail on NYE. Post Office of course has been closed since then, so on my way home from today was the first chance I’ve had to rescue my package.

This is an AMAZING package from ifjuly. WOW so generous, all packaged up nice and organized. Little notes in the bags. I’m so excited to paw through it and see what’s all in here. THANK YOU!!!!

YAAAAAY!!!

Awww, I’m glad it reached you safely. It took the same bizarre tour through Florida and customs first. o_O It was a pleasure to put together (and I owed you big for your last swap box!) and I hope you find something you dig or at least that it helps you check stuff off your “to try” list!

Dexter said

LOL and the post office wonders why they are loosing money…. packages going 1000 miles out of their way.
I think I’m going to “dig” lots of the teas in this box. Great choices. Thank you!!!
