Thanks cameron, can’t wait to try their tea!! Any yes, the packaging is really nice :-)
Super cute! Love it!!! I’m one of those who thinks size matters. So happy for you. Enjoy!!!!!
Yay! Yours is so cute :-). Have you tried the heavily roasted oolong yet?
Yyz, yes, isn’t it nice to get something before week end?

Today we received: http://steepster.com/teaware/bonavita/39130-1-liter-variable-temperature-digital-electric-gooseneck-kettle. Wow, this is going to make brewing temperature-specific teas so much easier! Very pleased!

Many thanks to TeaVivre, Angel, & Mary!
Now when you equiped with such awesome teapot all the teas must taste 100% better. Teavivers teas are the best!
boychik, Easily achieving the appropriate brewing parameters has to help! Agreed – I’m a big TeaVivre fan too!
Sarsonator, I can see why – I’m enjoying ours already! Thanks for the recommendation!
TheTeaFairy, Yes we will! Thanks!
Nice! I just realized you ordered 10 times the amount I usually order (50g) per tea. That’s amazing! Enjoy the bonavita gooseneck! I absolutely love mine!!!

My care package from Dexter arrived – so excited to try out all the teas she sent me! YAY for new teas! :)
Happy that you received it – would be nicer if your work would allow you some time to actually sit and enjoy some of them. Yay tea!!! Boo work!!
I was gonig to try and get a couple in today but i’m getting distracted with things like expense claims; budgets; cleaning up emails; unpacking etc…blech…and it’s release time in a few hours. grrrrrrrrrr bringing tea to that though.
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:(((
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.
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.
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!
