I got my teavivre order in the mail yesterday. Nothing elaborate, just a few of the sample bags. I bought the flavored Oolong, the Black tea, and the Green tea, but I’ve only tried two so far. I do have 250 tea points, though, so I will be saving those to buy whichever tea I like best. :)

Plus you’ll have even more points once you post reviews of all of those teas! Hooray! :)

How do you get points for that?

All you have to do is log in to your account and post a review for the tea. They’re 50 points each. :)

Thanks. :)

My yixing and tea pet arrived!!

I’m saving the teapot for Christmas. I was going to wait to buy it until around that time but the sale happened. Wooooooo discount! As for my piggy I’m not going to wait to bathe him in love. I’m naming him Georgie Pie because he looks like it x3

Nice :D

yay!

sounds good! have you tried Bailin Gongfu? How does it compare to Tan Yang?

A TeaVivre order is a good mail day indeed. :)

Great haul!I requested the Dan Cong sample too!

apt, the Bailin tastes more like raw grains to me, while the Tan Yang is more sweet potato. I love both though! :)

KiwiDelight, I realized afterward that I already have a sample of it. Womp womp…

The second sample I got (one that I didn’t choose) was Milk Oolong… Ah well.

I got my Teavivre order. Finally, I was worried because we are going to mini trip. The mail lady left the package on a top of mail box. Anyone driving a car could pick it up. So disappointed I probably will call to PO to complain. But then I’m afraid of revenge:(((

And here it’s raining today!
