Official *What did you get in the mail today?* Thread!!!
My tealux order came! And man, 2 oz. of the white tea I bought is so much bigger than the 2 oz. of black tea I bought! It didn’t even all fit in the cute tin I got for it! Not complaining though!! :) I’m so excited to try all the samples I got! Thought I was getting my persimmon tree order, but alas, it didn’t come. Stupid tracking.
My Verdant Reserve Club order came today… the last Reserve Club shipment! :( The club is being reimagined, but this is the last box of teas that will be a surprise.
I added all of the teas to the database but they don’t show up in the search, and they don’t show up under the Verdant (Special) company page. They do, however, show up in my cupboard! Hopefully they will show up soon elsewhere. FYI for anyone else who needs to add them to their cupboards, they’re already in the database!
To meet the $25 free shipping on Amazon, I added a Tea Forte Luci infuser to an order of Trekkie stuff for a friend’s upcoming baby shower. I can’t wait to see them open the Tribble package! Too cute! And the “cadet” onesie!
Anyway, the tea infuser prompted what is probably my most scathing review yet… http://wordsabouttea.blogspot.com/2013/09/luci-infuser-by-tea-forte.html
What do you think… too harsh?
Not at all. The critiques are very specific and well reasoned. A lousy product deserves a lousy review!
I agree. I think your review is just fine. Too bad about it being a dude. It looks like it could’ve been a neat little infuser.
My tea from Nicole’s stash reduction. Mad Tea Party blend.
I received tea from Nicole today from her stash reduction. So very nice of her to send it overseas to me. :)

I received teas from Cavocorax and OMGsrsly! While i’m excited for new teas, i was hoping to stay under 200 for longer than a whole day haha! Oh well…back up to 213!
Tea party, Sil! Throw a tea party- it’d be a great excuse to work through the stash :) Big cold-brews of iced tea, pots of different kinds of teas to finish off samples, everybody brings a dish cooked with tea or you do a cooking project together.. maybe even tea door prizes? You’d be down to 20 or so before you know it ;-)
Sadly, the friends of mine who would come, would likely bring me tea or just want to drink their own hahahah
Oh well, not like I didn’t expect it…especially with orders from verdant, butiki, American tea room on their way as well as two travelling tea boxes and a few swaps heh
Today was awesome! I got my persimmon tree order, turtle cheesecake from 52teas, and even the Lupicia newsletter with a sample of paradise green! Wheeeeee!!!
My Verdant order came in already, I only placed it three days ago.
I got my order from 52 Teas today, except that I wasn’t home when it arrived, so technically my husband got it. He had a cup of the tea I was most excited about, S’mores Chai, waiting for me when I got home! n_n He had made himself a cup of the other one, the Spiced Brandy Shou Mei, and we had a sampling session as the teas cooled. :D It’s always a good day when tea comes in the mail!
Wow! Sounds like a great afternoon! :) That’s so nice that he enjoys it along with you.
Yep! It was a bit of a tricky situation when we got married, because we each had our own tea stash that we then had to combine in some way and still have room to live in the apartment. XD He was working at Teavana at the time (not how we met, btw), which made the problem even worse.
