Steepster doesn’t like me posting…
YAY! that worked! suprise present from my dearest swedish chef!
I GOT SO MUCH TEA WOWY WOW WOW THIS IS GREAT.
My tea from Adagio came in! I got my Jack Frost, chai sampler (it was free because of a thing) and Bruce Banner! Shmiracles came up with a fantastic idea where she’d buy Loki and I’d buy Bruce and we’ll give each other the other half the pack since 3oz. of tea is a bit much. I also got Fruit Sangria wrapped sachets but.. I didn’t order that. I ordered the Gourmet Sips instead and I’ve already emailed Adagio about the mix-up.
I also received my samples from Tea at Sea! Can’t wait to try them! It’s so cutely packed and it came with a wee little sailboat :)
And theeen THE MASSIVE SWAP FROM SHMIRACLES NEARLY HAD ME FAINT.
SO. MUCH. TEA.
There’s like 20 PLUS half the Loki bag in there and oh my gosh I’m going to be having SO much fun this week trying all these different teas out!
My cupboard shot up at least 30 teas because… oh my gosh what is this I broke 100. This is a weird feeling.
Now all I’m doing is waiting for my David’s order to come so I’m very excited for that! Finally getting my Timolino so I can bring my teas with me to class :)
I got 2 Ink ’n Drink markers for review .. Hopefully it will help my son take his tea a little warmer :). Thanks Ink ’n Drink!
Got a win from Della Terra .. 1 ounce of Pomiscus. Not one I would have probably picked on my own, but excited to try it.
OMG you guys. This has been the GREATEST day for tea that I’ve ever had.
I received 5 tea packages!
1) Box from Shadowfall containing 5 Butiki teas that I bought from her, and my MASSIVE Adagio purchase that she was kind enough to forward to me! (thank you so much again!) http://oi60.tinypic.com/2wmf8zd.jpg The Adagio teas are a treat I allowed myself to celebrate getting a job after being off work for 4 months!
3) My Devotea Order! http://i60.tinypic.com/wrmg68.jpg
4) My sample from Blue Chai
5) A few little samples from VariaTEA! (Thank you)
That’s 30 new teas/samples in one day!!! Woooo! (And this is why I was so happy to get down to 125 this weekend!)
Wow. That is alot of tea. But it would be awesome to get all that in the mail at once.
Glad to hear my package finally arrived.
technically i got it last night.
1- American Tea Room
Romanoff was a free sample and hand written note. Thank you so much American Tea Room
10 year Aged Tieguanyin is a free sample. I really like handwritten note. Thank you so much Verdant Tea.
oooh that looks a lot like my first ever order from ATR, makes me all nostalgic and happy to see, ha. everything sounds really good!
Thank you Lily. I’m enjoying Tian Di Ren Yiwu 2008 Shu Puer now. I’m on my 8th steep. It’s truly amazing.
@ ifjuly. i have outrageous cravings of dessert teas at night. Can’t you see ifjuly I’m influenced by you and middle eastern cuisine;)
haha, middle eastern food yummmm! btw, in case you end up underwhelmed/less than impressed with any of the ATR blends, i would recommend trying them coldsteeped for a few days in the fridge once the weather warms up. if i recall correctly, Tangier in particular was really tasty that way.
Well, it didn’t come in the mail, but it was given to me today! Our teenager’s mom (I’m the stepmom) runs a small shop selling a variety of goods from Nepal and went on a purchasing trip a few weeks back. Because she seriously is the best possible ex you can imagine, she came back with a variety of teas from Nepal for me to try. And they all come in these fabric bags that look similar to this:
I’ve never seen those before and I’m stoked to reuse them in a variety of ways!
Tealux came today! Very fast, I’m impressed.
I received my World Market order of a bunch of tea tins. Spent the evening filling them with my loose teas :-)
Samples from Rosehips and VariaTEA showed up yesterday, but I didn’t have computer access at the time.
