Official *What did you get in the mail today?* Thread!!!
My swap from Martine arrived yesterday~
I got my swap from Courtney today! Thanks Courtney! I can’t wait to try them :D
Super awesome surprise samples from Sil!
Big mail day! My 52teas order and my verdant order with the spring laoshan black and others. Plus I ordered that test tube steeper and I’m absolutely in love. I wish there was a 16oz size as well.
My awesome tea swap from JustJames!!! Thank you…. :D
I got my first verdant order and my 52Teas order today.
And my cotton candy iced tea from 52Teas.
Thank you! The tea canister is so lovely and delicately painted. I cleaned it and placed the Laoshan black in it already. This tea truly smells like chocolate. Going to try it tomorrow.
Congrats! :) I got my yellow leaves jar too the other day! :D I love it even more in person than I did the picture when I bought it. xD Super beautiful, and it closes super tight! :)
My swap from Jessiwrites came in today! I have so many packages coming in (mostly from swaps), so it’s nice that this came in while I was home sick. The rest will be picked up by my boyfriend who might wonder what’s up when the rest show up. :D
Got my 52teas order! Woohoo! Too bad I can’t drink the French toast tea until morning!!
I got my 5 for 5$ verdant sampler! Really excited to try everything. I didn’t like the laoshan black as much as i thought i would (though i did enjoy it)
It’s tough when a tea has so much public love because you get this inflated idea of what it will taste like and then if it is anything less than manna from heaven you feel disappointed. At least I do. I have this with books and movies too.
Oh man i know :( it happens so much with me i often just avoid really popular things even if i had an interest in them to begin with. I mean, the laoshan was yummy but it didn’t suit me very well despite having some of my favorite flavors in it. Oh well! I’m in love with verdant’s yu lu yan cha black so i’ve at least found something i can love :)
I think people get confused by all the reviews talking about chocolate/brownie/cocoa flavors. There is a difference better chocolate FLAVORED teas and a roasty tea with some chocolate notes, you know?
Oh yeah one time my friend told me to try a tea cuz it had chocolate flavors in it and little did i know it had actual chocolate in it… Blegh. I’m not a fan of anything other than straight tea :((
