Received my glass mug with infuser from Mandala. It’s the most adorable little mug on the planet. I just pray I don’t break the darn thing.
I admire your restraint if you were able to ONLY buy tea ware from Mandala. There is a yixing pot on their site that I just adore, but would not be strong enough to only buy a pot. Will have to wait until I drink some of the tea that I have.
Really happy that you love your new mug. :))
Haha. I wish it was that easy. The mug was a part of a bigger (much much bigger) order and was delayed. And I just ordered more…so really I’m a big, pu’er loving failure.
On Friday I got my very first DAVIDsTEA order!! And I already made some of it iced! I am a happy girl and will be a repeat customer with DAVIDs!!!
-I received 4oz of the Pink Lemonade which I love!!!
-as well as 2oz of Lime Gelato which I can’t wait to try!
And I got three free samples!!! Hooray!
-pink passion fruit
-rose congou green
Happy DAVIDsTEA girl.
The Pineapple Oolong is really nice. I had a cup of it yesterday. I freaking love the little sample sachets. I wish they sold a set of them.
That would be cool to have a sampler pack of the littles:) ill have to Ice the pineapple soon!
I had a surprise show up..
Yunomi.us’ Monthly Mystery tea samplers club!
Sweet! The light roast houjicha sounds fantastic!
I had three orders show up today: From Adagio, Mandala, and EnjoyingTea.com. And then I came home to find this month’s Conscious Box had arrived and it included tea samples. Um… I may have a problem.
Not pictured: the two boxes of bagged tea EnjoyingTea.com included in the package for free. I tried one of the bagged oolong and decided to leave it at the office for my coworkers. I also left the bagged Chinese Restaurant Tea at the office just in case it would meet a similar fate.
OMG!!! Tea heaven…looks like a family member was checking out the stash!
They are feline customs officers and must inspect all new things that come into the household.
Haha, so cute. My cat’s like that too. She always has to be a part of it when I open a new parcel. :)
We have a loooong (over a decade old) running joke in my family that if a new item isn’t Kitty Approved (this achievement granted to new objects the cats sit on, or nuzzle after sniffing) we aren’t allowed to keep it.
These both came in the last week and a half, but I just got back into town so I am just getting them! Verdant Reserve Club for July and some samples from Teavivre! Suddenly I have much more tea.
Did you manage to sort out your French teas? I knot you’d said they shipped late :(
Yeah they got delivered to my hotel the day I left paris, after I left of course. The hotel said they would ship the teas to me at home, but I haven’t heard anything further from them. Crossing my fingers!
