Official *What did you get in the mail today?* Thread!!!
Finally got my last DavidsTea order, after a bit of a confusing mess of shipping updates. Yay, so much herbal tea!
EDIT: They remembered to include my free tins this time! I haven’t gotten my last three free tins, so that was exciting.
My Rabbit Hole Organic Tea Bar samples came in today! forgot to add gunpowder, but If I am able to reorder, will include that next.
Milk Oolong (Jin Xuan)
Rabbit Hole Chai
oh! they’ll ship oustide the country now? (maybe they always did but i dind’t think they so)
this was a special request, due to misunderstanding about their website. I have no idea if they will do it again, but had no trouble other then some confusion and very frank, but polite comments about how unusual it it.
I’d email them with your interest…they set me up through paypal. can’t loose anything by the email, and if we show interest, perhaps they will consider more overseas orders.
What did me in entirely was the lavender cream. All the other teas I can find the types elsewhere, but I HAD to try a lavender flavored milk oolong!
Oh, they were matter of fact about the cost of shipping, which is outrageous, but once I ok’d that, set me up.
Hurrah! I can finally say something on this thread. :) Two of my four orders have arrived today and I received:
Cream of Earl Grey (replenishing my cupboard)
Pumpkin Chai (first time trying this. My first cup is steeping right now)
From Butiki Teas (first time I’ve ordered, super excited!!)
Premium Taiwanese Assam
And of course, samples with both orders. :) One from David’s I’ve already tried before (Exotica, but I don’t mind drinking another!) but the rest are all new, and I’m very excited for everything.
It was actually surprisingly good. :) It genuinely tasted like pumpkin with cinnamon and cloves. The base was a bit weak, but if you’re in it for the pumpkin it definitely hits the spot! :)
Sounds like my experience with other David’s teas…super good flavoring and weak on the base tea. Well, actually sometimes the flavoring aren’t that great. But occasionally they’re wonderful!
Sounds like we have the exact same feelings about David’s. :) Still I felt compelled to try this one, and while it wasn’t perfect, I will happily finish the pouch.
My Steep City Tea order arrived yesterday!
and today, my Della Terra Order came!
came in a cute blue patterned bubble mailer!
I’ve only sampled Ginger Zinger so far – it was surprisingly really good!
looking forward to my steep city order that is waiting patiently for me at home.
