Verdant packages for me, too! Yeah, I actually had two… One full of tea, and one containing a tea cup I preordered. Can’t wait to dig in!

Chizakura said

Did you happen to order one of the storage jars from them? I’m curious to know whether they’re air tight or not, as I’m looking into ordering one of the available ones.

Dinosara said

Nope, no jars for me. I only ended up getting a tea cup from the teaware this time.

I didn’t get it in the mail, but I got a tea cup (or is it a sake cup?) from Goodwill today for fifty cents. It has Japanese kanji on the bottom.

ooh, that’s pretty. I have a flea market near by that has a whole lot of tea sets and cups, but most aren’t Asian. I would love if I could find some japanese ones there!

I got my Butiki order today! Watermelon Xylophone and Silver Needle with some lovely samples I can’t wait to try. Just finishing up my Oolong from the work day before I dive into trying the new goodness!

Watermelon Xylophone is my favorite!

It’s good! Perfect for summer.
