Official *What did you get in the mail today?* Thread!!!
nothing today. kinda motivates me to order several samples^^’
Do you order interesting things to get something in the post? I used to do that. It’s how I got a lot of my favourite books.
i used to write letters addressed from my school so that they will write my name in the announcement board ^^
I got my first Della Terra Teas order! I’m ecstatic! 7 new teas to try!!! I got:
Oatmeal Raisin Cookie
Chili Chocolate Truffle
The Perfect Pear
Pineapple Upside Down Cake
And they gave me a free sample of Strawberries and Cream!
Oh, so many good ones! I am in love with the Pineapple Upside Down Cake.
Can’t wait to try them! I just had to open them all and smell them! Since they’re black teas though, they’ll have to wait until morning. Looks like Friday will be a busy tea day!!
Oatmeal Raisin Cookie is one of my favorites
Pineapple Upside Down Cake is amazing. make sure to resteep it. It resteeps VERY well
Thanks for the resteeping advice!
Oatmeal raisin is amazing.
Make sure you resteep the pineapple upside down cake. it resteeps 3 times.
Thanks for the advice on resteeping!
yappychappy – you were so right about pineapple upside down cake! I love it!
My Adagio order FINALLY got here! Only took a week, used to be less than 24 hours ;~;
Nothing … my mail has not and may not come due to snow storm. :(
=( That’s always sad.
Yesterday I received my swap from kittylovestea. It was super fast.
Just got my swap package from T.C. YAY!!! Can’t wait to open it on my lunch break.
What the ???? I got coffee in the mail today lol
Nescafe Memento instant coffee beverage,
Cappuccino and Caramel Latte. I think I’m gonna drink this crap too :)
Wednesday night about 11:00 PM I ordered another Finum basket and two bags of Tea and Herb, for my wife, from Empire Tea Services. Granted it is only 60 miles away, but that almost overnight service!
Today I got my two sample orders from Upton and The Whistling Kettle.
Got a bunch of Oolong samples (and a black tea) from Upton, including:
TDD1S – 10g sample: Arya Estate Topaz Second Flush (EX-45) Organic

ZO10S – 12g sample: China Oolong Se Chung
ZO25S – 7g sample: Organic Da Hong Pao Oolong
ZO78S – 15g sample: Tie-Guan-Yin Oolong 2nd Grade
From the Whistling, I got 6 random samples for 2 bucks. I also got an Orange Ginger Oolong sample.
Super excited to try all these out!
Holy crap! I got a ton of tea today!
Swaps in from Stephanie, Jessi(finally, damned customs!), and Elizabeth (thank you all!)
Orders in from Silver Tips Tea and thePuriTea
I’d list them all but yikes would take to long so heres a pic!
Yay awesome photo! :)
Nice! Looks like you’re going to have a productive tea weekend! =)
somewhere in the mess i got some black dragon pearls i can’t wait to try (even though im not normally a black guy…hope they are good).
As someone who also normally doesn’t like black teas, I’d be interested to see what you think of them. I’ve always been curious, but too afraid to buy them. Hope you like them!
looks like tao canisters :)
actually those 8 are slightly bigger containers from Silver Tips. $3 :) I’ll post a pick some day got rows of copper containers filled with tea lol
