Got my swap package from Dexter3657. Wow! That box was crammed! I am a SWAP convert! Smells delicious. Too many teas to list. Now where do I start?
Yay!!! Glad you got it, hope you like what I sent!!!
And on that note….
I came home to a fantastic swap package for Ubacat. Tons more in here than what I was expecting. Thank you so much!!! :))
I got this gaiwan set today that you guys helped me pick out.
It came with some metal tweezer/tong things. What are those for?
I think the tongs are for holding slash moving around the pieces when you steralize/ rinse them with tea or water.
Yay! It has been fun expeirmenting with it. Enjoy. So what will be the first tea grace the gwaiwan?
I got my second swap from Roswell Strange!!! With bonus stickers!!!
I am a happy camper!!!
I received my Mandala order today! So excited.
Eeeeeee! I got my Bonavita Gooseneck Electric Kettle! I am so excited to try this so I can program exact temperatures. It will be a huge improvement over my current methods, which are to either boil and cool, or try to guess the temp as the kettle heats on the stove.
Me: So yeah, my woman’s intuition is telling me that this water is around 183 degrees. Perfect!
I would be inside testing it out, but
1. It’s gorgeous outside and
2. I just ate salsa chips and it will be a little while before any tea I would make stops tasting like a fiesta!
Wish me luck!
Sounds like a great investment. I love my Hamilton Beach w/variable temps. Makes it so easy!
I’m in love. It heats so quickly! It’s easy to use! It looks fab sitting out on the counter top!
I will miss my old stove top kettle, though.
I got my Mandala order AND my pu-erh Ebay order! Unfortunately , I am unable to try them this evening because of the caffeine but look forward to trying them soon.
