Official *What did you get in the mail today?* Thread!!!
Got two packages of samples from MissB, a ridiculous amount of yummy-sounding teas to experiment with so I can start off on the right foot on my tea journey and not end up buying tons of tea that I won’t like.
Thanks again, MissB!
I got my order from Doehi Tea. They had a sale at the time I ordered and for some reason the code didn’t work on my order. I knew it when I ordered, but I wasn’t worried since it wasn’t that much money and I wanted the tea. When my order came there was a nice note saying they realized the code hadn’t worked right and they sent 2 extra ounces of one of the teas I ordered (which was worth much more than the discount) in addition to a free sample. Very thoughtful!
While I was out of town I got lovely holiday cards from Sil & Stephanie! You guys are the best. :D
My newest caddy from James Lin (http://www.aliexpress.com/store/526436)
Next one will be another shape and size. This one holds between 50-100g depending on the tea.
Holy moly packages!
1 – Day 3 of the 12 Days of Christmas swap from CelebriTEA
2 – A lovely swap package from Sil
3 – A Christmas card and four tea samples from KittyLovesTea
4 – A sample package from CelebriTEA
5 – A HUGE holiday gift box, also from CelebriTEA, sporting US-only candy (Spree, Gingerbread M&Ms, etc), pot holders, a knitting magazine and paraphernalia, and a gorgeous teapot, cup and spoon wind chime!
woot! my tea from CHAroma arrived! and this weekend i was finally able to recsue my package from MissB from mail jail. cupboard haz esploded!
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
well i am supposed to get a gaiwan and tea tray. hurry up usps!!!!!
