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!

2) My Hugo Teas Order! http://i62.tinypic.com/35je7gi.jpg
The little messages under the caps are pretty cute: http://i62.tinypic.com/fk4hub.jpg

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.

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!

boychik said

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;)

ifjuly said

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!

Samples from Rosehips and VariaTEA showed up yesterday, but I didn’t have computer access at the time.

Courtney said

Woot! I’m getting antsy to send out your swap haha. Solely because I don’t like “unfinished business”. :P

In the package I received, my French Butter Cookie Matcha opened. Today I received another package to replaced the one that opened. There was also a sample of Eggnog Matcha that I am very excited to try :)

Also, my DAVIDs order is on the truck to be delivered today so I am just patiently waiting…

ETA: DAVIDs arrived! I am now officially part of the Mason Jar club!

MissB said

Yay for replacement tea! Excited to see what you think about the eggnog.

VariaTEA said

I am excited to try it. It just seems so popular. Perhaps I will go make another cup…
