I received my first package ever from China today, Fujian, to be precise.

A bunch of beautiful samples from Teavivre. I am so excited finally to have the opportunity to experience excellent tea from China!

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!!!

The box from my Dad arrived today with my Black Friday orders from 52 teas, American Tea Room, Red Leaf Tea, Butiki, Harney & Sons, and a bunch of holiday teas from Celestial Seasonings. I also got a sample of Bolder Breakfast from the Tea Spot.

In addition, he also threw in a perfect teaspoon, Harry Potter stamps, The Tea Enthusiasts Handbook, and the Season 3 Limited Edition of the Walking Dead that I bought for my brother.

I am in tea heaven!!

Dexter said

Wow that sounds like a great box – nice “care package” additions too. Enjoy your new teas. :))

My cupboard just exploded from 177 to 212 teas. Between the box and my trip to Nina’s Paris yesterday, my tea boredom is officially cured!!

(Excited for some swaps once we both have returned home from out vacations)

Got my Davids Tea Boxer sale with teawear. I tried to take off brewing basket of my new Timolino, but couldn’t:( Maybe its just too cold.

Finally got my swap from Kat that’s been lurking in the mail for about two and a half weeks. Unfortunately I think it got run over by a truck because the tea is all smashed up inside (and it looks like it has a tire track on it). Oo
I need to go see if there’s anything salvageable of it still though.
