My swap from Courtney arrived today, and my Amoda box came in yesterday!

Oh, and Sil gave me 72 teas today when we did a quick swap downtown.

I am drowning in teas. It’s amazing. I’m at 253, but a lot of it is really small samples and I expect to get that number down quickly. I’m not allowed to buy more until I hit 150. /newrule/

Sil select said

Drowning, shmowning….as key change would say, I only gave you a small suitcase ;)

Cavocorax said

I just realized I have 48 different Adagio samples now, between you, MissB, Shmiracles and the ones I grabbed. I hope Shmiracles’ box to you bumps you up A LOT. :P

(lurking in the corner enjoying this exchange – makes me happy to know that I’m not alone with my cupboard issues…)

72 teas?? :O

Sil select said

hahahaha yes… but that’s because we regularly share teas…so i just toss it in her box until i gets full. Similarly with a few other ppl.. :)

Well, I noticed that in your tasting notes you very often mention that you put the rest of such and such a tea for this or that person… So I shouldn’t have been surprised that it eventually amounts to something like 72! :D

Sil select said

if it makes you feel better, terri’s box to me was about 60 the other day hahahah

That is really sweet :D Keep up the tea craziness, guys!

Sil select said

heh it helps that we have similar tastes in tea i think :)

Lol, if that’s a “quick swap” I’m afraid to imagine what a “slow swap” would look like!!
(Oh, and +1 with Dexter)

I received a generous package of samples from Teavivre. Thanks! Looking forward to trying them. I’ve been looking after an injured relative recently, but I look forward to spending some quality time with my teas shortly.

Cheri select said

Enjoy your quality time!

Yyz, I understand what you’re going through, good quality time is much needed in your situation, enjoy :-)
(I also got my samples for reviews last week from teavivre, wow,wow,wow, right??)

My Butiki order arrived in the mail today and then I found my Red Leaf order sitting at my door. I’m excited to try the Butiki samples! This will also be my first time trying a flavored matcha… Caramel MATCHAccino. :)

Courtney said

Enjoy! It’s delicious.

I just finished trying it blended with almond milk and ice and it’s delicious! Now I understand…

Courtney said

Hahaha! Yes. It is so delicious. Especially the MATCHAccinos. The Coconut MATCHAccino is also a great choice hint, hint. :P

Hahaha, ok…twisting my arm here. ;)

Got my first sample of matcha from Red Leaf today… Cheesecake. Looking forward to trying it to see what the fuss is all about.

Oohhh, that sounds yummy… I look forward to your review!

Received my swap from SHMIRACLES! today…and um…there’s no way i’m making my sipdown goal for this month. Not a chance. BUT i haven’t purchased anything this month either, so i consider that a win! Especially since it won’t be far into April that i catch up…at least i don’t think so.

I also received a mini package in the mail from Keychange :)

Sil select said

(totally at 214 now….eep)

Cavocorax said

Woohoo! You’re still going to hit 200 a lot quicker than I will, but I brought my Tea Festival bag to work full of a bunch of easy sipdowns. :P

Sil select said

yeah but the abundance of adagio teas will slow me down. must break between them. :) i forsee under 200 by end of day tomorrow given that i’m ending tonight at 204? haha

Cavocorax said

Yeah, I hear you. I love the little black bags that Shmiracles sent her samples in. Those seem like they’ll seal really well so I can worry about sipping my ziplock samples first and leave those for when I can savour them (instead of now when I’m tea-panicked)

Sil select said

haha yeah..unflavoured samples into my white container since there’s no real smell contamination.
Flavoured samples in to the little orange tins like the ones i kept your matcha samples in…if those get full, some go into any other sort of tin that i have kicking around. Those get put into a larger orange tin.

sadly right now? All of that is taken up…so uh all shmiracles and half of yours are in a little box now, beside my kettle to make sure i drink 1/2 every night when i get home from work.

Cavocorax said

I’ll make sure to return those too, no worries. :P
At least hers shouldn’t get contaminated. I hope not at least, so I’m drinking the Adagio samples from you now!

I received my first order from Kusmi today: the Russian Blends set of mini tins plus three sample sachets of other teas. Looking forward to testing the Russian suite of Earl Greys!

To be honest, I did not realize when I placed this order that all five teas are black blends laced with bergamot! Fortunately, I happen to like Earl Grey…

I was eyeing this last night. I will have to follow you and see what you think of these. I had received the Russian Morning Tea in a swap and really liked it.

I had a tea windfall today. I received a box of teas from QueenOfTarts. I also received my package from Awkward Soul. Thanks. Finally, I received my order from The Republic of Tea. I am excited about that one, because I ordered the new Hi-caf teas.
