Official *What did you get in the mail today?* Thread!!!
Good mail day today. I got my Red Leaf Tea order. A two large bags of MATCHAccino mix. One Tiramsu and one Pumpkin Pie both with Robust flavor. Can’t wait to try it.
AND……..I got the most amazing swap box from JackieT. I love it. Tons of great samples to try. It’s at my new address waiting for me to be done moving and settle in with a cup of tea. Thank you so much.
Yesterday I got my order from Mandala. 4oz of Special Dark pu’er and samples of Big Red Robe Dark Roast and Yunnan Beauty.
After fretting for 2 days about my Nina’s order potentially being lost in the mail, it’s HERE! Thank goodness! I’ve been waiting to order Grand Amour for awhile and now I have a beautiful 100g tin of it! Nina’s also sent me samples of Magicienne and Jasmin! Yay! (And Phew!!)
Big package day today. I got my variable temperature kettle, which I am very excited to use. I also got a takeya flash chill iced tea maker; however, it arrived with its lid broken! And, Amazon won’t replace it…I can only get a refund. Have to take it to UPS store to ship back. What a hassle! I really wanted to make iced tea too! Guess I’ll just pick a new one up at DavidsTea.
Bummer that the ice tea maker came broke. That’s never fun. Though it’s strange that Amazon won’t replace it. Usually they’re pretty easy going with stuff like that.
Ya, it’s from one of their sellers. It is a bummer, especially since it was the reason I even started to think about an order. At least the kettle and the tea are awesome!!
Verdant Reserve Club May shipment! Gotta find time to have some tomorrow before I leave town on Sunday!
Happy Mother’s Day fellow Steepsters!
I got my order from Butiki and one from Steven Smith – amid all the excitement, I was amused at the huge contrast between the two. The Butiki order was all in those beautifully decorated bags, there were SO MANY SAMPLES (huge thank you to Stacy, if you’re reading!), and it smelled unbelievably good, while the SS order contained 3 rather severely smart silver packages of unflavoured black teas. Different styles indeed. :)
Oooh, I’m sorry sil. Two of your very favourites too! But awesome Stacy gave me a sample of gluten-free Ruby Pie, which I’ll drink in your honour!
haha no i’m super glad that you received your order! I hope you love at least a few of them :) i just have to hold out and not order…sooo many teas to go through!
Looking forward to seeing your reviews on stacy’s teas but also the SS teas that i haven’t yet tried :)
sil & Stacy – already in love with the Caramel Vanilla Assam – SO GOOD. (Usual amounts of chaos ramped up here, so may not get to the tasting notes as quickly as I’d like.)
TastyBrew I got the Brahmin, the Assam (*sil*’s doing!), and the Ceylon Dimbulla.
Now, if only I could stay home and drink tea all day…
Apparently my tealux order arrived, but I have to wait till 8:30, before I can get it in my hands.
I got a crazy amazing swap in the mail today from Dexter3657 and I’ve been on a tea excitement high since I got it (appx 4:45pm ET)
