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!!

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.

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.

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.

I got my first ever Steepster swap package from ashleyelizabeth, just in time for the weekend! SO EXCITED. Extra excited because customs didn’t even open the package, even though she clearly marked it tea. THANKS AUSTRALIAN CUSTOMS!
