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!

Gotta love the postal service. I got my second TTC order first, and my first TTC order is in customs limbo…

DAVIDsTea – Ice Blue Carry Mug, The Chai Collection, and Apple Pie Perfect Match

Taiwan Tea Crafts – Pumice Clay Large Tulip Tea Cup, Craquelure Rose Small Trivet, Satin Blue Gaiwan, Satin Blue Tulip Tea Cup, Mei Xue Small Tea Caddie in Blue, Red Jade Black Tea Lot 268, and Bag Sealing Pins (blue, bright yellow, orange, green, red)

I got the new fall DAVIDsTea menu, but no fall samples yet.

boychik said

I went to TTC site. They have beautiful teaware. Enjoy!!!

yyz said

Second boychik, they have some beautiful pieces. Enjoy them.

I adore my blue gaiwan and will probably get the rest of the set when I get paid. The pumice clay teaware is pretty nice too. I love the texture and the glaze is so beautiful.

I received two small orders today, one from Mandala Tea and the other from Teavivre. From Mandala I got the Gaba Black and 2009 Mengku Jade Dew. I read a really good review of this second tea from Sarsonator and decided to buy it. Found space for it in my small pumidor. From Teavivre I received the Bailin Gongfu Black, Da Hong Pao Wuyi Rock Oolong, and Rose Dian Hong Black Tea. I received two free samples with each order.

The photo is a little blurry, but my cell phone flash won’t work right with instagram, drives me nuts, it works with the phone.

Nice!

I’ve been away/busy/tired for the past week and a half. Today I finally had a chance to open my Teavivre packages! One was full of review samples, and the other had my awesome new teapot set. So tiny and cute! And they included a pretty tea mat! Squee!
