Official *What did you get in the mail today?* Thread!!!
I received and I like the Iceland village (Lake of moss) sheng puerh tea which I originally got on ebay at http://www.ebay.com/itm/Yunnan-Iceland-Village-Puer-Tea-Old-Tree-Spring-Tea-P073-3-5oz-100g-2011-Raw-/170873575884?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_2&hash=item27c8dbd9cc. I purchased this 100 gr pressing to save for a few years as I finish off the previous one I bought.
My Yunnan Sourcing order! FINALLY! With LOTS of stamps covering the box!
2 pu’er cakes and a really really cool gaiwan. Omg I love the gaiwan!
I should also be getting the Here’s Hoping Teabox – it’s out for delivery, but my mailman likes doing priority packages really late, like 7pm late while I’m out.
Could you do a review of the Qiu Yun cake? I have the same one on its way from china too, how long did the slow shipping take? I’m 4 weeks into the painful wait.
checking.. Oh my, I ordered those cakes on July 18th, so about 4 weeks. I paid for 3 to 5 week shipping (over the 40 to 70 day shipping option from hell). You should get yours pretty soon!

oh, ok, I got the cheapest shipping option, china post surface (40-70 days), it would have been like double the shipping cost for even the next one up for my order, though mine was larger than yours and they scale based on weight.
Ah I see. Yeah I just squeaked by the China small parcel option! Man, wish their shipping was better, but the tea is cheap so I guess it evens out.
I wonder if your box will have more stamps than mine? LOL (on that note, I’m tempted to count the stamps and cost to see how much shipping costed)
Two Lupicia lucky packs plus a few extras. This is between two people, but we are set for a while (I hope, hah.)
Shared butiki order with Cavocorax, Indigobloom and Kittenna!
My David’s Tea order arrived. I broke the lid of my Steeper last week and it’s been driving me crazy, so I decided to replace it. Well, I got a new Steeper AND one of the tiny Q Teapots David’s has on sale right now. I just used it, and it’s so cute!
I didn’t realize how stained my old Steeper was until I put the new one beside it. They’re like night and day.
Oh, I got a bit of tea, too.
I got my package from Teavivre today! Apparently they tried to deliver it yesterday, but the people who live upstairs will NEVER answer the door, and I was in the basement suite watching the baby when the doorbell rang, and didn’t think twice. Even if I had rushed outside, I probably wouldn’t have made it in time.
Doesn’t matter though! Now I am getting a respectable amount of unflavoured teas, especially blacks! And I’m still under 120 teas… Not too shabby! (I am, however, starting to order 2oz – 4oz’s at a time again! /0\)
Oh and my samples from Nina’s Paris came in too. It was an excellent day. I’m sipping on Taurus now.
WOOHOO! I got my swap from BrewTEAlly Sweet today, AND my free 1.75oz sencha from Yunomi.us (just signed up for their newsletter and randomly won!) AND I got some perfume samples I ordered from etsy. TWO of them are tea scented- Iced Mint Green Tea and Earl Grey Chamomile. I’ll let you know if they’re awesome or not! https://www.etsy.com/shop/ripeshop
DAVIDsTEA tin of red velvet, fresh off the 40% off sale. Only ordered it yesterday so I’m a happy addict!
