I got two swap packages in the mail today, both stuffed full of pure awesomeness. One from Eva and one from Allie. Thank you so much ladies!

My gaiwan arrived, and some sample sizes I ordered from Adagio —23g of Pu-erh Poe, 23g of Earl Grey Moonlight, and 11g of Dancong Aria. Also, a swap package from Tea Junkie! Republic of Tea’s Earl Greyer – the zip smelled fantastic when I opened it.

1oz White Chocolate Raspberry from Della Terra I won on Facebook. If you don’t already, go like them on Facebook, they do giveaways all the time! All I did to win this was click “like”.

Wow, Stephanie, congratulations! I haven’t won anything yet myself, but I do participate pretty regularly :D

Some people have the tea contest luck. Congrats to you!

My Zojirushi tumbler! I’m so excited! I have so many tumblers but, none of them are leak-proof. This is going to be a life-changer! :)

OMG, OMG OMG -I am so glad I was at home today to save my packages from going to Canada Post jail. AWESOME mail day!!!!

I got a swap package from VariaTEALOL I too got some of the really cute mustache tape. Thank you so much.

I got a swap package from TheTeaFairy – Bright yellow box with fun green tape. I need to up my game and make my packages prettier. Fantastic – thank you!!!

I also got my order from RiverTea – I ordered it 9 days ago and got my package today from Germany. That is really good delivery time from Europe.

I’m off to open my packages!!! So Excited!!! Just for the record my cupboard is at 288 before opening theses – will see how bad the explosion is. :))

Wow, that really is an awesome mail day! Enjoy!!

VariaTEA said

I am glad it arrived! And I think most people got some of the mustach tape but it is gone now :(.

Also, you had a pretty amazing mail day it seems. Enjoy!!

le sigh no mustache tape for me… i feel so deprived…unloved giggling

VariaTEA said

I will find more and then I will send you am envelope MADE of mustache tape!! (Probably not though because I don’t have those skills)

OMG – RiverTea seriously knows how to package tea!! This is one of (if not the best) packaged order I’ve received. The little canisters are so cute, and individually wrapped in foam. On the canisters is ingredient list, steep instructions, best before date. I also like that not only the names but the type of tea – for example it is Sweet Helen but under that is says Pear Fruit Tea – don’t have to open or guess what Sweet Helen is.

I didn’t ask for specific samples – in fact I didn’t mention them at all, but I still got three of them, plus a little bonus that I won’t tell anyone about. All in all, for a new company – they have it together. Great Job guys – now if the tea is half this good….

Cavocorax said

That sounds really amazing! When did you order? Did you order the same day I did (umm.. the day they announced they were open and we all jumped on board)? Because I want mine to arrive today and I’m in Toronto so why not?

I CAN HAZ TEA?

Sil select said

you are making me stupidly excited to get my tea from River Tea dexter…especially since i wasn’t supposed to spend anymore money but ordered anyway haha

Yay, so happy it’s a good tea day on your special day off, you deserve that :-)
(On a selfish note, I’m really hopping to receive my Rivertea today as well!!!)

Dexter said

My confirmation emails say I ordered on the 17th, my Steepster comments say 9 days ago… It was right when they opened.
I hope you guys get yours soon too. :))

Sil select said

haha my confirmation says the 18th…. taps her foot impatiently you’d think i hadn’t just bought MORE tea…

Dexter said

Sil but you are in GTA – that’s at least a day closer to Germany than I am – hope you get it today too…

Dexter said

cough…..356….cough

Sil select said

dexter…9 more and you’ll have one for every day of the year!

Dexter said

I’m drinking one right now – 4 are going out in the mail today…maybe 350 by end of day.
I have to stop buying and Steepster generosity is OUT OF CONTROL – I love you guys but OUT OF CONTROL. :))

I ordered the 10 pack sampler from tea setter (he only sells his 10 favorite teas) and it was $10 with free shipping. Crazy good deal. Too bad I’m all stuffed up so no use trying anything new today. But I’m looking forward to these!

Rachel said

Thanks for sharing, I just snatched one up.

I got my really tiny 52teas order (Napalm Ferret, the last one – couldn’t resist!) and a free sampler from Den’s Tea (I only paid $3 shipping for it) – it’s really awesome and it’s much more than you’d expect to get for free.

I will have to order something from Den’s Tea one day, so I don’t feel like a cheapskate :D

Turned out to be an extraordinary mail day!!!

I got my Rivertea order, which is incomplete, bummer! But I think there might be a box #2 to come so I’ll be waiting another day before contacting them. I am super impressed with what I got though, awesome packaging and all the teas smell sooooo gooood!!!

But my favourite package of the day was from Dexter3657! Wow, I am so grateful for all the care that was put into it, THANK YOU SO MUCH, can’t wait to expand my horizons with all the wonderful teas you have sent :-)

Dexter said

Fantastic – we both got each others boxes and RiverTea on the same day. I hope you get the rest of your order soon. :))

Yay for awesome mail days!!!!
