drank Santa's Secret by DAVIDsTEA
1195 tasting notes

I am so upset because my new order from Davidstea should be here but the tracking has not updated since yesterday afternoon. IT’S RIGHT HERE. Stupid UPS. I can’t win. I avoid the postal service after this woman at my office was beyond rude and now UPS can’t even do things right in the city in which they are headquartered.
I know where you live, UPS.

So for now while I cry, I am drinking a cup of Santa’s Secret. There’s also this random pop-up thunderstorm right now and it sounds like someone is shooting a cannon outside. Oh and it’s also sunny. Happy March in Georgia indeed. So I really need something comforting and this is doing the trick.

I love how creamy this tastes without adding anything, and the peppermint adds this nice comforting smoothness. I love this tea. It seems so simple, and yet it’s so so good.

And now I’m going to go find out if maybe UPS decided to completely bypass my door, tracking, and everything logical and leave the box at the office, so then I can be angry and sad all over again and need more of this…except it needs to make it till this is available again because it’s a keeper.

I recently had UPS lose a package. It went “out for delivery”… and then it never was delivered, just out for delivery forever. Of course they never admitted that the package was lost. :P

It arrived at 10am yesterday, then at 1:14pm, it went “in transit” again…and then again at 1:17. So apparently it’s separated into two rogue shipments out on the prowl. And no, they will never admit they lost it. My friend ordered a new transmission for her car and they managed to drop it, which broke something that couldn’t be fixed, and they refused to pay for it despite her having insurance on it through them. They’re great. But they’re better than being given attitude when you’re just trying to send an envelope.

UPS is horrible, they left one of my tea packages out on the steps while it was pouring rain outside, needless to say it was ruined and i was mad, called and complained and now they wont deliver here anymore i have to drive to the hub to pick up my packages :(

momo

The package just showed up actually, I thought I heard their truck out a couple hours ago but now it’s here..I looked out my window and saw it. Then I was just standing there and I hear THUD on my door. He just threw it there. So kind. Needless to say I surprised him when I immediately open the door hahaha

Well ya’ll (especially Amanda since I sent to you today) I bag in plastic and then bag again in another plastic bag the whole thing and send in a plastic mailer so if it rains your tea does not get ruined. Everyone should mail the swaps that way!

Tommy: My door is covered, but at my parents’ house up in Tennessee they are generally really good about putting boxes in plastic bags if it’s going to rain. That’s sad and a really poor response on their part >:[

Generally my mail should stay dry, although there was one time I went out to the mail center and found my box open because the delivery person somehow managed to put the lock on my door in a 180 degree position.

I guess I’m just lucky being in smaller town USA. My UPS is always the same guy and when I had a dog he always had a dog cookie for Charlie. We even have milk delivery here…Who has that anymore! Not in California! Someone would kill um…(sorry but true or rob at least). People…I feel like I went back to 1961 and I can go to the store without locking the door. People ask to help you all the time and say hello. It took me 6 months to get used to it. (I do like it though especially the free coffee and tea at the stores and bank and ice for your groceries when it’s hot weather). If this post sounds wierd I took vicodin for a pulled tooth! OUCH!

My UPS guy is great but I do have everything delivered to the office…

UPS has also left my husbands medicine outside with no knock on the door to let us know it got too hot and had to be sent back, we had many complaints in to them about that so they probably just got tired of dealing with us lol

momo

well at least it would take some serious failure for them to mess up now haha
