Official *What did you get in the mail today?* Thread!!!
Got my Mandala order today (What a deal for what was in the box!!) and my extra samples I bought from Green Terrace Teas!
I got my Whispering Pines order (sleeping bear and some Golden Orchard, every day toucha and a sample) along with my tea at sea order I’m almost scared to have more of the mountain organic Indonesian green, the sample was soo good!
I got an awesome swap package from Sarsonator with both kinds of te=he Blue Chai blue flower tea!!!!!I’m going to play with it tomorrow and turn it purple :D
Well, technically, this came in yesterday, but I got my final free subscription box from Simple Loose Leaf (I got a 3-month package for free in exchange for the Sunday Tea and Books posts).
My box came with:
- 1 oz of Yin Gou Mei Green
- 1 oz of Kenilworth Ceylon Black
- 6 g sample of Jasmine Special Grade Green
However, I won’t be able to do anything about these teas for at least a week, since the absolutely ginormous GCTTB3 came in on Monday!
I got my samples from The Persimmon Tree! I bought them when they had free shipping and 20% off, so I only paid $1 for each one! You can’t beat that! I got:
Coconut Creme (white)
Mandarin Cream (oolong)
Thai Chai (black)
Rooibos Vanilla Chai
Banana Coconut (rooibos)
Unfortunately, I did not get my Whispering Pines order, which was supposed to come today. :(
Same here, I’m pretty depressed about it. They’ve been holding mine there since 4am yesterday. I just want to experience the magic that is WP danggit!
Clearly Wisconsin is trying to hoard all of the Whispering Pines goodness for itself… Conspiracy! >:(
I mean technically I still haven’t finished trying my Butiki or Mandala orders and I haven’t even started my Tea at Sea, but still, pouting.
Sounds like the Wisconsin mailmen are greedy no good tea thieves
You’d better hope it doesn’t have to come through Minnnesota or I will steal the whispering pines!! Just kidding (maybe)
Aww, I feel for you guys…but just be happy you don’t live in Canada!! I have two orders on their way, the one from july first is not even here yet, being held at customs.
(Watch it you guys…now that I know Wisconsin is the place to be, I might just move there. And a fairy near a WP order is a dangerous thing…)
My WP order has LEFT Wisconsin, been process through Chicago ("no further available from USPS- item has left the US) – excellent move over to Canada Post and they know it’s an inbound international package but it’s not in Canada yet – that means it’s in Customs…. :((
Mine out for delivery since 10am. If it won’t show up by 6pm my hubby will leave without it. He is coming for the weekend. Feeling frustrated :(
boychik, mine is the same way. The mail usually comes at like 1:30 and no package yet. Although it looks as if the mailman may not have come yet? Not sure. :(
3 days is nothing teafairy! Though perhaps a little long for a US parcel. My favourite is when they hold it at the sorting plant for over a week, or when the mis-direct it, ie. Chicago, Montreal, Toronto(finally).
Yay, I got it and will be reunited tonight …unless hubs will decide to come tomorrow. It could be a thunder tonight.
I forgot to mention it will be 2 packages. The other one is Mandala;)
Thank you yyz. It’s raining now. Lets hope no thunder. For some reason thunderstorm in mountains is scarier.
I could see that, one either you can’t see the storm and you just hear and feel it, or you see it and it just seems larger in the open. Then there is the risk of forest fire ( especially where I’ve worked). On the other hand watching sheet lightning from a distance in the air can be amazing and sometimes beautiful.
I live on Long woods rd where I have exceptionally tall cherrywood trees. They bent like crazy. And when there is thunder it feels like earthquake because its like right above and below my tiny house. I’m not scaredy cat but its kinda creepy. I hope no forest fire, it’s been rainy almost every night
It definitely is a case of nature putting us in our place. I could see how that could be creepy. Hopefully, your husband is able to join you tonight!
Golden Tips subscription!
15 10 gram tea samples because I ordered 3 chai samples on top of the 10 that come with the subscription, then they added two samples!
This isn’t a in the mail thing per say but the movers came and brought me the giant chest o’ teas that’s been in storage for over 2 months which is basically like getting a shipment of hundreds of teas.
I’m also expecting a water filter pitcher in the mail today so I can finally start brewing some decent tasting teas and not have to stick to only my heartiest ones.
I got a bunch of samples from The Persimmon Tree. Only two days from California to the East Coast. I was quite surprised when I found the package in the mail.
Got my samples from Yezi Tea.
(Since I got some free samples, I got some from there too.)
Mandala order 2 of 3 came in!!!
Four Leaves Ripe
I am super excited to try Imperial Dark and Four Leaves Ripe as they are new to me.
As usual, super professional and so nice to deal with, Mandala is just awesome.
And what an epic sale!
Ok lady, can you start from Four Leaves Ripe pleeease
I’m so curious, cause I didn’t get it and then couldn’t sleep at night blaming myself. Why oh why my brain was on pause mode
Oh nooo! Too late I’m already having Imperial dark and will post my review. Dang, I love it!!! At this rate, I’m on such a high, will probably won’t sleep tonight anyways, so I might do the Four Leaves as well :-)
Lol, you know you’ll get some eventually :-) I know we are waiting for september, but if you just want this one, PM me where you’re spending your summer, I’ll send you some…
You are so sweet but I will wait. I just don’t want it to get lost in PO then I have to drive I don’t know where. I’m in the woods. With deer and other wild animals including skunk
Tea from the lovely VariaTEA :)
