Official *What did you get in the mail today?* Thread!!!
I received my Just Organic Tea samples also! AND a package from MissB! I did a little dance at the mailbox. Luckily my neighbors weren’t around.
I got my Wild Monk sheng cake from Mandala today, and a box to store it in that has some room to spare! Anything wrong with storing other puerhs in there with it since there is room?
OMG! I got the Just Organic Tea samples! They include all their teas! They gave me twelve teas as well as an organic sugar sample. The only problem I have is that I have the Butiki TTB. I have to get it in the mail by Wednesday! So much tea, so little time. :D Happy girl!
As others have mentioned the Just Organic Tea samples arrived today and they spoiled me rotten with all the samples!
I also got my Just Organic Tea samples. Totally unexpected and awesome. And not to look a gift horse in the mouth, but while it’s incredibly nice that they sent me samples of all their teas, I rather wish they hadn’t since I was really only interested in the ones I had asked about. Lol. Not to mention the two spice teas made everything else smell and are so strong smelling I actually feel ill from them. x.x I’m hoping that the smell didn’t permeate into the rest of the teas….And I’ll probly end up tossing these into the TTBC that will be coming in the near future since I have no interest in the rest of them. Lol.
I put divided up the packets by smelly ones, not smelly, and plain, put the packets in containers with a little baking soda and covered them for about 2 hours. It seemed to help. (I didn’t put the packets touching the baking soda) I left the smelly ones in with the baking soda a little longer.
Huh. Never thought of doing that. I just dumped the ones I wanted out onto a little foil and folded them up into little packets.
So far the assam that I made didn’t have any sort of spice taste to it, so I think they’ll be alright. ^^
I was surprised to get the number of samples they sent as well. I was happy to get so many as there are several I’ve not had anything like. I too was worried about the strong smelling ones affecting the others too.. I separated them from the rest of the bunch and hope they haven’t change their flavor. I haven’t tried any of them yet so time will tell.
I received my Lupicia order today. Yay new tea!!!
Giant swap box from the forever lovely VariaTEA today: some things I knew I was getting, like Camellia Sinensis goodies, but most were lovely surprises :)
I received my awesome swap from jump62359 and if i ever get a moment to breathe i will SO be enjoying the teas she sent!
Got my RiverTea order only six days after placing it!
-strawberry orange black tea
-assam beast of the east
and (generous!) samples of: spring tea, tea of kings, and tropical dream.
So excited to bust this open! I’m especially excited to try the strawberry orange tea and the creamy vanilla. If I think it’ll work, I might even try them together after trying them separately.
Hooray for RiverTea! Spring Tea, Mulberry White, and Tea of Kings all rock! :)
I can’t wait to try them!! I remember you tried rivertea like a million years ago and your reviews got me excited!
Oooh does it? I’m going to have to try that after I try it hot. I’m kind of disappointed that you can only order 50 g and no other quantity (says the girl who hasn’t tried a single one of them yet!)
