Official *What did you get in the mail today?* Thread!!!
Got my swap from Sandy’sCuppa today. So much good stuff, and a lot of tea I have never tried before.
Walnut Brittle – Della Terra
Organic blooming tea – Numi
French Vanilla Matcha – Red Leaf Teas
2 Pu-erh mini cakes – Red Leaf Teas
Buckingham Palace – The English Tea Store
Oooo Walnut Brittle is so good.
This is not tea related but I was expecting gourmet caramels in the mail today. Said out for delivery on the tracking – when my mailman came I didn’t even think about it. Now I am imagining my wonderful caramels – Sweet Cherry Pie, Cinnamon Roll, Sicilian Salted, and Sleigh Ride – all alone on that mail truck. That bastard better not have eaten them!!!
Uh-oh! If he did, I think he’s in for some trouble! Those sound delicious!
Haha indeed he will be – I won’t make him hot chocolate anymore when he delivers my mail! Haha I’m badass like that :P
Thanks they do, my daughter and I had some of their Lavender Caramels and they were SO SO SO SO SO SO Good!!!! :)
You make your mailman hot chocolate!? He should be bringing your mail to your door on a satin pillow with that kind of treatment! ;)
oh wow, that sounds so mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!
My mom’s a letter carrier, so people meet her at the door with water or lemonade on really hot days. Trust me, It’s much appreciated.
Haha yes I always offer him water, or a gatorade, or capri sun on hot days, hot cocoa, or coffee on winter days – that is when he stops to drop off packages. Oh and he does bring things to my door often. Sometimes I meet him out at the mailbox, sometimes he just puts things in the box and goes off. haha it sounds like I have an intimate relationship with my mail guy.
Hey, nothing wrong with that! =)
That’s very kind of you. I never see my mailman… I live up in the country, so my mailbox is on top of a long, steep driveway.
I always wanted a house with a really long driveway – except in the winter maybe :)
Yeah, the winter is kinda a crappy time to have a long driveway. But any other time it’s nice. It means your house is further from the road! haha
And usually more secluded :)
It’s nice for quiet time, that’s for sure! =)
My caramels came today Wooo Hooo – AND my mailman even brought up the fact he had forgotten it yesterday :) Nice guy.
Yay! Glad you got them and you won’t have to take away his coco privileges. Sounds like a good guy!
Yeah I may even give him a caramel :)
I got my Mandala Tea order today, and they were nice enough to send me some samples based on what I bought! Gotta love that! Tried the Golden Gong Ting – 2005 earlier and will be trying it again tomorrow to write up a nice review! Can’t wait to try the Yunnan Beauty! After reading Azzrian’s review, I had to buy it. =)
I hope you love it as much as I did!
I’m sure I will! I think a person would have to try really hard to give me an oolong I didn’t enjoy!
haha I hear you on that! Although some are just a decent oolong and nothing more I would take a decent oolong any day! I love the stuff!
I’ve gotten several lovely packages lately, & I’m back tracking because I don’t think I’ve logged any of them here:
First I got book club trades a week or so ago from Alpha Kitty & Three whales, and today I got one from Lariel!
On Friday I got my order from Verdant:
Fujian white jasmine
master Han’s wild picked yunnan black
Anxi fo Shou black.
Also on Friday my verdant TOTM club package came:
Five year aged Tieguanyin
Light roast taiwanese Dong Ding Oolong
Schisandra juniper five flavor blend
AND last but not least, I’m very excited because my trade with Ysaurella arrived today!
She sent me so many wonderful things, which I want to try RIGHT NOW! But it’s almost 9:30pm, so I’m going with a cup of vanilla comoro. Tomorrow…so many teas…
My Adagio order arrived today after booking it for re delivery and waiting the extra few days (which felt like forever). I got a £10 voucher from collecting points and treated myself to the following:
Earl Grey Lavender sample
personaliTEA teapot in grasshopper green
Sunlit Blooms set of three tins
Should have been £32.50 but I got it for £22.50 :D
I got some Samples from Daoli yesterday, I was very happy because I had only asked for a sample of Black Trip and they sent samples of all 8 trips :) Yay!!!
I FINALLY got my swap from T.C. today. Too cute, my daughter calls me at work, “You know that package you were waiting for, well it was in the mailbox.”
LOL, good ol’ international shipping (it’s not the fastest!)
Usually it’s pretty quick, but every so often you get one that lags.
your daughter knows your heart sooo well! and sweet enough to brighten up your day at work too :D
So many packages!
Swaps with JosieJade, Starfevre, T.C, and my book club swap with Terri HarpLady (which all smells amaaazing)!
Verdant order (2 oz chai spice, a bunch of samples)
Steep City order (Moroccan Berry Mint, Lychee Burst, a very very generous sample of Nutty Love and Lady Melody for my dad)
