Official *What did you get in the mail today?* Thread!!!
My swap from Lindsey! Jelly Bean Dream <3
I got packages from both Della Terra and Butiki! Got samplers from both places so now I have over 25 teas to try! happy dance
My NMTC order. And my sample was pretty generous. :)
Ok, this should be the end of my four day streak of daily deliveries. Pretty good end – sampler from Della Terra and Lemon Sorbetti from Tea Forte. And a shiny Kati so I can drink loose leaf tea at work at last! Whee!
Yesterday I received my first Harney and Sons order (yay!). I ordered a bunch of samples plus a 4 oz. tin of Paris tea.
Well, they sent ALL sample sizes and no tin. First thing this morning they shipped out my Paris tin. I’m so impressed with how quickly they went about correcting my order. Now I’m waiting on my sinus infection to clear up so I can actually try the teas.
Nothing! #cries #waitsfornextweek
Day 5 in a row of tea deliveries (definitely getting the raised eyebrow from my partner!). Swap/giveaway from Shelley_Lorraine, who was even thoughtful enough to notice that I am on the hunt for a good bedtime tea and send along a surprise sample.
I need to make a dent in the supply… guess my weekend plans are set!
Did I mention that I love the way Steepster enables this obsession?
Got my swap from Rebecca R. and my Butiki order from winning her contest. Still need to open them both though. I will tonight since I’m at my parents now. /so excited/ XD
Got my 52Teas order: 2 pouches of Blueberry Cream Cheese Danish and one pouch of Weeping Angel.
The Weeping Angel has that dreaded “wine” like smell that some people have been getting from them lately, but the blueberry seems to smell normal. Only one way to find out though :)
Got my order from java tea co. Comes in a long poster tube. Kinda cool, but seems like it’d be unnecessarily expensive to ship (I got free shipping for ordering 3). I’ll be keeping the poster tube though!
I got their 3 main ones, a caramel one, vanilla one, and a chocolate one. I didnt realize they are all rooibos blends when I ordered. Doh.
Poster tube? Are the individual teas just shoved in there? Or are they in round containers too?
Interesting that a coffee-inspired tea company would use a rooibos base rather than black tea…
Hope it’s tasty!
mmmmm i really wanted to try these out but tooo worried i wouldn’t like them and have soo much tea left over. If you end up not liking them, happy to do a mini trade to try them out :)
I know, right? I think that’s why I just assumed they were black tea based. I’m thinking they’re maybe trying to make caffeine free healthy coffee-ish drinks. I’m hoping I can doctor them with some black tea. That rooibos kills me though. The aftertaste. I wonder if there’s a way to tame it.
@Sil – If I hadn’t just sent out your package I would have included some. I’m always happy to share. I tried the caramel one. It’s good. I think I can work with it.
