Official *What did you get in the mail today?* Thread!!!
The BBB Box arrived from terriharplady today. along with a SMALL verdant order that i placed. However…i foresee my cupboard being up close to 300 again now thanks to the “extras” terri tossed into my box. Imma kill that woman! lol
nooooo i was almost under 200! Now i’m staring at mountains of tea on my dining room table…with plans to be stealing more from Kittenna tomorrow as well lol fml. talk about first world problems lol
Ha ha. Well at least they’re probably mostly only a cup or two each. I found myself with an insane amount of each tea and like 300 of them. The purge felt good. Now I will only buy small amounts of each tea. Crazy how much I used to buy of one flavor of tea, even before trying it! Ugh. Live and learn.
Zeks… oh she will be getting a box all for herself back…plus whatever i put into our BBB box for the group lol
TB – sad part is, my cupboard IS purged…and i have only been buying .5oz or 1oz things lately… only thing that might save me is that i’m putting together a sample box of black for omgsrsly’s brother and for genushumanusalice down under.
Boxermama is getting a brand new box all to herself with things from the BBB box and our shared orders lol
It seems like forever ago that I received a tea package in the mail.. Ha ha. I received a sweet and generous package from Stephanie as a thank you for our recent swap. Love the steepster community. I’m feeling a lot more at home :) anyways.. It was full of matchas!!! Yay I can’t wait!!!!! Caramel matchachino I’m coming for you!!!

I got a wonderful swap package from teamore today! Perfect to come home to after a crummy Monday at work! :)
I got tea AGAIN today!!! Yay!!! My cupboard is exploding, but I like it.
I got a really nice swap package from Sil. Awesome little extras that I’m really excited about. Thank you so much!!! – yours will be in the mail soon (waiting on one order to come in).
I also got a really nice, sweet, generous, birthday package from Nxtdoor. Thank you!!! I got more Tao Tea Leaf – awesome!!!
I don’t think I can say often enough how much I love this community. The generosity just keeps amazing me….
Got my tea I won in Teavivre’s Autumn giveaway. Featured Taiwan Oolong tea sampler. Thanks Teavivre, you are awesome!
My swap from Courtney came in! Yay! A few Harney&Sons teas I haven’t tried, as well as some chocolatey ones.
I’m a bit jealous. She managed to ship it at the letter rate, while I always end up having to pay for a package when I ship things. I’m not so good at this, I guess. :P (need more practice?)
Thanks for the swap though! I’m very excited!
I imagine it’d help if I used larger bags that would squish out flatter, and didn’t double bag them (bc that adds air pockets…)
I have perfected it haha. And the ladies at my post office are awesome! I do push as much air out as a can, and sometimes just use a bigger than necessary envelope to have more room for flatness.
Today my 1st Package from IPPODO arrived ! It will be the first time trying Ippodo brand, it came very recommended.
Woohoo! My swap from Kaylee arrived! Excited to try the local (and not so local) teas she sent on to me :)
And, perfectly, my swap from Sil arrived today too! Excellent timing – I’m settling in for a looong night of depressing work.
