Official *What did you get in the mail today?* Thread!!!
An abolute record for Reserve Club package – slightly less than a month in transit. Usually it’s close to 2.
Also – some very expensive Puer from JK. I hope it’s worth it :)
My GINORMOUS (25 frickin’ teas!) Butiki order from Stacy’s birthday sale came! Yayayayayay! I love that it maps a turning point with my tea tastes, too—something like 80% of the order was unflavored greens and oolongs, two categories I knew nearly nothing about pre-Steepster (and for the longest time figured I didn’t care for—Verdant and Den’s taught me otherwise, whee). I’ve been pretty good too about drinking my bajillion older samples too—cold steeping has saved me all summer long—so I’m totally jazzed about doing the more meditative thing with unflavored goodies soon. Woo hoo!
YESSS my Butiki Teas order arrived! OOOH YEAH! DROOOOL!
With Open Eyes, Birthday Cake, Caramel Vanilla Assam, Peppermint Patty, 1991 Da Ye Aged Oolong, Foxy Roxy’s Banana Walnut Treat, Ruby Pie, Pineapple Cilantro Cream, Rose Violet Calendual Oolong and some pu’er tuochas.
It came in such a small box too, but Stacy managed to pack the teas in perfectly.
My first box from the Teavivre sale! Today was Premium Jasmine Dragon Pearl (on sale) and Organic White Peony! There were also three samples in the box, too! I can’t wait to start brewing!
My Butiki order came in while I was on vacation. It was a welcome surprise after my 12+ hour drive back home and a week with hardly any tea to drink.
Da Yu Ling Oolong, 2003 Reserve Four Season Oolong, Gui Fei Oolong, Rose Violet Calendula Oolong, Mi Xian Black, and Creamy Eggnog.
I can’t wait to crack these open and start sampling :)
I just got my Persimmon Tree samples today – I love that all of this was $15 and included shipping!
My 9 tea tealux order came today :) oolongs: charcoal fire roasted tung ting, Ali shan , hong shui, jade, tky, nai xiang, jin xuan. Silver needle: bai hao yin zhen, imperial yunnan
I got my second DAVIDsTEA order! I was surprised when I came home to this ENOURMOUS plain brown box, and I thought there was no way it could be my DAVIDs order because it was a rather small one and I was expecting the white and teal box. But low and behold it was my DAVIDs order with a TON of brown packing paper. Any ways, I ended up with:
- 50g Redberry Tonic
- A tin for that
- Lychee Blooming Tea
- Peach Blooming Tea
and my oh so cute sample were:
- Salted Caramel
- Bai Hao Yin Zen
Can’t wait to try them all.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE DAVIDs. Probably my favorite so far.
