Camellia Sinensis Tea House order! The teaware I’ve considered for a long time, plus a gift sample of one of their winter oolong (perfect hit, with me).

I imagined the package passing through cities in which Canadian Steepsters are sipping tea! haha (’u’*) ♪

I tried to find the scent of Montreal in there but just found bubble wrap.

this is a really cute gaiwan!

Agreed. :) It’s just the right amount of décor. Looks beautiful. Not plain, not gaudy either. That’s the exact sort of thing I like. (In fact, this design is a lot like my duvet cover haha)

My swap from Dexter cam yesterday.
I’m supposed to be received a package today from toys r us for my daughters. The debate is do I give it to them now or hoard it until the end of August for my youngest’s Birthday.

My shared order with terriharplady arrived today from taiwan tea crafts! Some really pretty packaging as far as teas go and i love the hand written note AND the fact they added another sample to the package and made sure it was a black tea as that was all we ordered heh

Woo! My first Verdant order came in!

http://oi41.tinypic.com/62py.jpg – This is what $50 of tea looks like, and I’m so excited to try all of it!

I think the red package is the Anxi Fo Shou sample, by process of elimination.

Also, I think I might have gotten 2 samples? The Golden Fleece and the Five Year Aged Tieguanyin? Thank you! :O I used points to get $10 off, and I’m slowly working my way back up. I have to say that I really appreciate that Verdant offers free shipping to Canada with a minimum order!

Sil select said

you’re right on the anxi fo shou… lesigh

Cavocorax said

Awww… Hopefully in the fall?

So glad it all arrived safely! :) and yes- you and Sil are absolutely right: the red package is the Anxi Fo Shou Black Tea

I got my Harney & Sons order yesterday! New adorable cherry blossom teapot and cups, and 5 tea samples (4 oolongs and Soho). Turns out the teapot even has one of those built in strainers at the outlet…nice!! :D
