Sooo much packing tape!!! It was bubble wrapped and taped like one of those mean xmas gifts. Box – super tape. Everything inside box wrapped with a huge piece of bubble wrapped coated entirely with packing tape. After that – each item was individually wrapped in bubble wrap + packing tape. Then each box was super packing taped shut. Inside each box was the teaware, wrapped in bubble wrap + more tape. WOW.

Though boooo.. still no Bluebird Tea Co order. Must be sitting in customs or something /cry

That gaiwan is so cute! Though that does seem like a lot of packaging.

I was considering ordering that gaiwan off ebay. I love the colors. It’s so pretty.

That’s what happens when you combine 15% off and gift cards! Luckily, I have plenty of help to drink through it all. :)

I got my first ever marshmallow treat genmaicha from 52teas…about to drink some.

I also got my order from Butiki!!! Stacy included 4 samples! Thank you, Stacy!! The box smelled like the 4 oz. of maple pecan oolong I bought! Haha! I did a little happy dance when I opened it!!

I think I have way too much tea now….better try to drink up some of this!!! :)

You’re welcome! :) Mmmm, Maple Pecan Oolong smell. If only I could make it into a perfume.

Oh Stacy, I would totally buy that perfume. Heck yeah!

I hope my marshmallow treat genmaicha is waiting for me when I get home from work too, Tealizzy! :D

Tealizzy said

Stacy – I’d buy that perfume too!!! Yum!!

Ha! I got 4oz of that in the mail today too and it smelled soooooooo wonderful!
