Official *What did you get in the mail today?* Thread!!!
My Yanabah Navajo Tea and Red Leaf (with some fun extras) orders! I’m super excited to try out the Navajo Tea & Mint, and the Caramel Matchaccino! But I don’t want to open any of my new teas until I’ve made a little more of a dent in my old teas… The Navajo Tea & Green Tea is definitely coming to work with me, though. I’m running out of teabags there. :)
My order of Tiger Assam from Andrews & Dunham arrived, and I got a surprise package from Whispering Pines that my husband ordered for me. I thought it was a Christmas gift, but he said I could add it to my “happy tea” stash. Yay!!!
Verdant tea comes through with a brick of Master Han’s 2013 Sheng pu’er and a bunch of Master Han’s looseleaf 2004 shu pu’er from their 25% off sale last week. Yummy! They also sent a sampler of traditional tieguanyin (my favorite oolong), and a $10 off coupon code for my next order. I like Verdant teas, and I like the tea company.
A replacement for a MIA package from an aliexpress dealer.
They were really good about it and resent the new package immediately and by express when they realized it was lost.
A Milan Xiang dancong. They included a 1 Yuan note, which I’m adding to my international currency collection.
aliexpress store 214732. Chinese Shopping mall. They sell as kungfu tea on Amazon as week, though I don’t see the tea I bought there.
I got my Della Terra teas! Excited to try these more popular blends, especially the Pineapple Upside Down Cake.
My Verdant box arrived! Muahahaha, Golden Fleece, you are mine all mine! They threw in some Phoenix Mountain Dancong too, so nice!
Much to my surprise, my Teavivre order came too—surprising because it was crazy fast considering it was free shipping from China (my Harney BF order hasn’t even arrived yet and well, that’s much closer geographically) aaand my usual problems of automatically having to go to the post office to pick it up weren’t an issue this time, weirdly (great!). I have to admit, I find orders for restocks just as exciting as new-to-me sample-a-thons—like seeing an old friend. I have been jonesing for more of their milk oolong and Golden Monkey for quite some time.
My Design a Tea custom sampler came too, which is exciting—tea flavor combos I came up with myself! Most looking forward to the Pumpkin Pecan Rooibos and Maple Irish Cream Black.
Last but not least, more appropriately sized baggies for swaps—5×3, 4mil thickness. I’m so ready to send some tea off!
Needless to say it was a great mail day!
What a great mail day! So happy to hear everything arrived safely, and that the Golden Fleece is back in it’s proper home in your cupboard (and tea cup!). Happy sipping
I have really missed it! Gonna have to grab some stroopwafel cookies to go with it. Thank you!
you can make your own tea blends here:
And I picked those two flavors with a rooibos base. I love the idea of this, had only just heard of the company last week from Dexter3657. Hoping the execution is good because the idea is fun. You can also double up on one flavor instead of mixing two. They also have signature blends.
Thank you for telling me about it! Either way it’s super reasonable to try out, that’s for sure—$5 to ship 5 samples that come with a $2 back coupon code on the next order, can’t really argue with that!
Two packages today, neither of which I was expecting. Turns out it was my Verdant blends — all of which sound absolutely amazing this month! — and anniversary chocolates from my boyfriend.
Both tea and chocolate in the mail? Definitely a good day.
Got my Amoda box full of butiki holiday teas. Look soooooo good!!!!
I missed out on the deadline to sign up, sadly – but I’m excited to read about the different blends regardless! Hope you enjoy them all ^^
ooooh! i’ve been wondering what they’ll be. this is my first foray into tea subscription so i’m double excited.
Hmmmm… so the west coast has got theres! Here’s hoping it’ll only be 3 more days before they arrive in Ontario!
I got my Sugar Caramel Oolong that was missing from my initial Golden Moon shipment, and also my Verdant Black Friday order, yay! Although unfortunately the Laoshan Roasted Oolong sample that I ordered was completely unsealed along the bottom of the pouch and emptied its contents completely into the shipping box. I managed to get a good deal of it out of the box, but it always sucks when things come unsealed!
I got my first Della Terra order. I got the custom sample order I got for my Dad and the holiday surprise box that I am determined to not open it until xmas. Its my present to myself since no one gets me tea for the holiday. I swear I can give out the exact websites I order tea from or ones I would love to try and they still don’t get the hint :-(
