Official *What did you get in the mail today?* Thread!!!
I got my big Lupicia order!
They shipped it with FedEx – the package was beaten up and then, apparently, taped-up. Fortunately nothing happened to the teas. It looked pretty bad, though, as if a dog had eaten it and then had retched it out.
I got two packages today.
I couldn’t resist the Red Leaf Tea Belgium chocolate matcha on sale this past weekend. It just arrived, along with some of their immortality tea.
I also got a small swap package from carol who that I’m really excited to start digging into. Everything smells delicious.
Mi Lan Xiang Phoenix Mountain Dancong Ooolong
I found a swap package from Janelle in my mail box! I’m so ready to try everything that it feels like my kettle is taking FOREVER to boil water…
I had tea from Verdant! I placed two orders one day apart a while back and asked if I could get them shipped together, but there was a mixup and the second order didn’t ship. So these last two teas arrived today and they threw in 1 oz of Yunnan White Jasmine to make up for delay, even though I felt it was sorta my fault anyway for asking to combine the orders and complicating things, and told them I didn’t need it. But they did it. Those guys!
Anyway, Verdant is amazing. They always go above and beyond and I highly recommend them.
I’m also 4 teas up! So, maybe I don’t need to hit my tea goal for the month. (4 delicious teas up…)
I came home to a surprise package from Dexter3657!! Thank you sooo much!! I am honored to be considered part of your steepster family :)
A really pretty gaiwan

Joseph Wesley Samples:

04 Dian Hong Congfu
05 Keemun Congfu
06 Bai Lin Congfu
And a non-tea package from my beloved Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab perfume oils
how did you get joseph wesley samples? I’ve really wanted to try their teas but 50g for something i’ve never tried is a bit much at this moment in time.
I had exactly the same issue. But someone, I think JenW showed me – if you go to this page:
On the far right is SA – Tea Samples. When you go to that page, you get them in multiples of three. You add the quantity and as you progress through checkout, they give you an opportunity to say which 3 you want. He threw in a fourth sample of Dian Hong Congfu.
thanks…totally didn’t see that, but now that you’ve pointed it out, it’s stupidly clear lol
Now i just need april to get here so i can order!
Don’t feel bad – I had to have them pointed out to me as well and April is ALMOST here!
I got some samples for Teavivre today, purchased with points. Super excited to try the tangerine ripe puerh! :)
Yay! My Yunomi order showed up today. I got a couple of samplers (Houjicha sampler and Sayamacha sampler), sencha flower blend, sencha summer citrus, and sakura tea.
Kusmi madness arrived at my doorstep today: the Afternoon Blends sampler tin set, the Green teas sampler tin set, and a big can of Violet tea.
I am really looking forward to testing everything, above all, the violet tea, as I love violet perfumes.
