Yesterday I got my Harney & Sons order. I just had Queen Catherine this morning and I am really glad I got a tin of this! All the other teas I got were samples.

Also, my husband received a package yesterday and he decided to give the contents to me – my early birthday present! – it was a variable temperature BonaVita kettle. I love it so much, I just want to make tea all the time. I am prediting the renaissance of greens and whites in my daily tea plans already :)

That’s exciting! I really love my variable kettle. It’s made tea much easier, especially greens.

Cavo’s & my joint Adagio order came in. Two boxes worth and So. Much. Tea. XD My Mom was like ‘you got /two/ boxes today. /dissaproving tone of voice/’ XD My only save was that most of it was for Cavo and what was mine, I techincally didn’t pay for. Lol! I’m dying to start trying all the teas, but I’m at my parent’s house washing clothes and won’t be able to until later tonight. ;.;

Two boxes of tea is so exciting. However, if my mom saw that she would probably have a similar reaction to what your mom had. Good thing I don’t live at home :P

WoooohooooO!!!!
I’m so excited! :D
And yeah… yikes. Most of that was mine. /0\ Shipping will be a little nutty but I can’t wait to log that tracking number into my app. (When you get a chance – I’m not expecting you to reship it for a few days).

Varia – I don’t live at home either (hence the washing clothes at their house). But I get all my packages sent there because I don’t trust the mail at my apartment.
Cavo – Lol! I should take a pic for you of all it. It’s a pretty impressive spread. XD

Cavocorax said

Oh! You should! I’m certain others would like to see it too!

VariaTEA said

Haha. I used to take my clothes home too and then realized it was more work to take my dirty laundry from Montreal to Toronto. If I sent packages there, it would not be good. I think my mother would not be impressed.

Oh.. be glad she isn’t an avid tea drinker or you might find yourself missing some when you get there to pick it up!

Just got two pounds of Warming Crimson Berry by Frontier National Products Co-op. I had only a sample and wanted to make sure I got plenty in case it was considered seasonal. Bright red color, berry and hibiscus (Not a hibiscus fan, but this is OK with sweetener)) and chili. It is so awesome to drink today, since it is 12 degrees below zero. I know that this is not a tasting note but it is so fun and warming.

I love when I get to post to this thread :)

Got my Della Terra order today. Ordered a bit more than I expected to.. but hey, they had a sale and I couldn’t resist. They also through in a sample of Honey & Spice.. not sure if it’s one I would have picked out myself, but it might be the first one I try :)
