Zen Tea and Taiwan Tea Crafts came today. Sadly one of my tins from TTC is smashed.

Got my first ever tetsubin from ZT…my goodness, so heavy! I think I am in love with it, is that wrong? :D

We won’t judge you.

I’m in love with Goldie. We can wrongly love our teaware together! :)

TTC isn’t great with packaging. I got my teas thrown into a box with no packing. Some of them got pulverized in the process.

apt said

You should even pet it if it makes you happy, I pet mine with no guilt.

Thankfully the tea was inside said canister (and undamaged), but yah. I will email them about it. Sars – Goldie is a mighty fine cup! TTF – I keep taking the lid off to look inside. (giggles)

Are we gonna see this new beauty of yours?

I went with this one:

Though this was a close second:

Also picked up this travel mug in green:

Omg!! You got the one I’ve been lusting for over a year now!! So jelly!!! ;-)

Such a beauty!!

Omg, it is a beauty! I still want the goldfish one too though. I wish I could justify it.

I’m really curious about the travel mug you bought. I haven’t found a travel mug I love yet, but this one looks promising. After you give it a test spin please let me know what you think!

Will do :)

I got a whole bunch of mostly Tea Urchin (and one White2Tea) shengs from my darling Sarsonator. Thanks precious! Your box should be there by Monday.

SarsyPie said

White2Tea and Tea Urchin FTW!!!!! Can’t wait to try some of those Shengs you packed for me! <3

Myssy said

I got more sheng samples from YS today. I probably should have waited to send your box, but I forgot about them…

SarsyPie said

No worries! I still love ya!

Myssy said

Actually I got five samples of the same thing because they were out of the cakes.

I got my order from Verdant Tea in yesterday with Laoshan Black Chocolate Genmaicha.

I generally dislike genmaicha, but Laoshan Black Chocolate Genmaicha sounds so good.

Myssy said

LBCG is so far beyond good. Delectable!

My Camellia Sinensis order! Everything smells really good; but especially One Night In Rio!

yyz said

Enjoy them. What did you get?

I got La Tropicale and then two of the new blends: One Night in Rio! and Peking Opera. I tried La Tropicale today (very lemony) and One Night In Rio!. Rio is amazing! Like, mind blowing-ly good. I’m very excited to try Peking Opera next.

yyz said

I’m glad you love it. I look forward to your notes!

I thought I found them online but it was a company with only straight teas. Could you give me a link?

yyz said

You probably did find them. The majority of their teas are straight. Their flavoured teas are found under tea family scented.

Dexter said

Love Camellia!!!! Ombrelle de Papier is my favorite scented of theirs. Great to hear that you found some more that you are really enjoying. :))

My Single Origin Teas order arrived – Vietnam Black OP1 and Jun Chiyabari Second Flush. Yum!

Not familiar with either of those. Might have to check them out. :)

If you want to try them shoot me a pm and I’ll send you some samples!

Myssy said

I loved that Jun Chiyabari

MzPriss – The (M)UTTB introduced me to soooo many new teas that I need. These two are the start of a fairly long shopping list. Next month I’ll hopefully be able to make my Mandala order. I need my own supply of Special Dark. :)

Myssy said

Everyone needs their own supply of Special Dark.

HOLY CRAP!!! I got the Marco Polo box today and it is HUGE!!! It’s at least 3 times as big as most of our TTBs. It is filled with chock full of goodness. This is the box of samples from a variety of companies. It looks totally awesome.

It’s bigger on the inside? Pics, please.

Oooh… It’s difficult to get a box from a tea company with no tea! I ordered 2 glass mugs with steeping baskets in them for friends and got a single tea tin for myself…. My first order from David’s Tea. Ordered No tea. Got 3 herbal samples included for free, but I’ve learned my lesson!

I have one of those that is supposed to arrive on Tuesday – a package from a tea company with no tea, that is.
