Official *What did you get in the mail today?* Thread!!!
My Zen Tea order arrived. Ten wonderful ‘sample’ sizes to indulge on.
Finally got my Whispering Pines order. So excited. It came in a big plastic silver pouch like an oversized tea pouch. I got it just before I had to leave for work but I couldn’t resist opening it. Only the first thing I smelled was catnip (to me at least) which wasn’t what I was expecting. LOL! I still have high hopes for how they’ll taste though.
A lot of tea.
My Pure Aroma order along with 3 samples. What’s nice is that if you order in multiples of 10g they send you your order in separate 10g bags instead of combining them into one. ( Great for keeping things fresh or for trading if you find you don’t like the tea.)
2 Rooibos Teas from LuxBerry. They’re in Winnepeg and offer free shipping of tea within Canada.
Samples of bagged tea and a catalogue from Basilur who are setting up an e-store in Canada which they are hoping to have online in about a month.
A new adaptor for my computer which is good because my old one just died.
My first Golden Moon tea order! Coconut Pouchong with samples of white Persian melon,sugar caramel oolong and peach oolong :D
My pound of Jaclyns Cocomint Tea from Simpson and Vail, I had an amazingly delicious pot of it as soon as I opened it.
I received an AWESOME swap from Courtney! She was super generous and I’m preparing a cup of Bamboozled (Davids). She also sent Tung Ting Vietnam (Butiki) and Peach Oolong (Davids). Thank you, Courtney!
Again not related to tea, the second part of my mom’s Mother’s Day gift. Her shark adoption certificate.
OMG you have to share more on this. One of my dear friends would freak if i did that for him
Dude! How would one go about adopting a shark? I’d love to adopt a shark…or get one for a gift for my boss who loves sharks…and is alternately terrified of them. Lol!
There are a few places online, but a lot seemed sketchy. So I checked out some links on the sharkwater website. I ended up going with Shark Trust, they’re based in the UK. With shipping it was about $60. She got a certificate which you can personalize. A car sticker, tons of info, an 8×10 picture of a great white (they have a few different types of sharks to choose from), & some post cards.
It took about a week to get here.
I also got her a copy of the Sharkwater documentary. It’s a Canadian documentary, same guy who did Revolution, which just came out. I got it on Amazon for $8
I got to see a prescreening of Revolution – it’s a real eye opener, just like Sharkwater was in 2007!
Shared order from puraroma – hello 20+ teas lol best thing? only took 6 business days to arrive here in canada AND the sample packages are reseable! Just made my life so much easier :)
Nothing since Monday. * pout * (Anxiously awaiting the new Della Terra order.)
