Is it Christmas? I received packages from Deliriums Frogs and Marzipan and the Butiki TTB in the last 2 days. Where to start, what to do… basically I have to do the Butiki box in the morning (no caffeine later in the day) so, darn it, I guess I’ll have to drink lots and lots of tea.
Thank you Deliriums Frogs and Marzipan. A special thanks to Stacy/ Butiki teas for sharing the box.

Enjoy! I sent some things from your wish list.

Wow.. I wouldn’t know where to start either… Have fun with it all !

The Butiki box sounds like so much fun!! Happy tea time!

Hope you enjoy sampling the teas! :)

Got a mystery pack from MissB today! There’s like 17 different things in there.. haha although I’m so excited that I may have miscounted. I’m new to Steepster (and kind of to tea in general) so I’m super excited to try a bunch of teas :P

Dexter said

Welcome to Steepster. MissB is awesome!! Enjoy your tea. :))

MissB said

Oh, yay! Glad you got it safely and that it’s been fun so far to explore.

Marzipan sent me some tea, and I’m beyond excited….
Butiki Pumpkin Milkshake and Ruby Pie, Della Terra’s Birthday Cupcake, 52Teas Hindbaersnitter, and Harney’s decaf vanilla comoro….

Let me know what you think!

My very first order from came in! I’m very excited to try all of the ones I received. However, it appears that 2 of the free samples I requested weren’t included, and they gave me a sample of a tea that I didn’t order. Weird.

EDIT: I emailed about this, and they responded very quickly. The ones I requested and didn’t receive were actually free samples that I added onto my order. They told me they have limited supplies of the samples that they give out for free, and they had run out of those ones, so they added a different sample in as a replacement. So I’m not too upset. Mainly I’m just happy that they responded so quickly.

Good to know when places have good customer service :)

My order came today. I got Sakura tea (which sounded good), and Sencha Lime (maybe they ran out of what I ordered, but it looks interesting. I’ve never had a lime green tea before.)

I was hoping to get a large box in from BC, but came home to my Whispering Pines order. I’m not really disappointed – this order was amazing. I also love the handwritten note, and the fact that each bag was obviously packaged just for me, with fancy hand-writing on each bag.

This was my first order, and I KNOW there will be more. #thumbsup

tiger assam and spring keemun from Andrews & dunham….. trendy packaging, 2 badges that say “The time for tea is NOW”….can’t wait to try them!

The tiger is nice, I think I like the Butuki morning ones a little more though.

marzipan, I agree… for the times when I don’t want a higher-end up (aka just a cup to gulp down) and just want something “simple”, it’s good to have middle-end teas around. But Butiki has pretty much refined my palate to the point where if I want a “great cup to savor” I won’t reach for anything else (well, except for maybe Laoshan Black….but even that isn’t quite as refined!)
