WOOHOO!!! Finally another black Friday order arrived…My verdant order in all it’s glory (i totally forgot i ordered 4oz of a few things…oopsy) though one of the samples split open – i think their heat sealer was getting a beating with all the orders heh.

Now to hope i get my other orders soooon!

Nice tea day! Enjoy.

Cavocorax said

That’s awesome! Also. I’m jealous you get your mail so early! I’m used to the mail coming before 11, but at this new place it usually doesn’t until 3:30.

Sil select said

so it’s holiday season…so packages come between 10-12 then then our ACTUAL mail delivery isn’t until 3-4?

Dinosara said

Yay! Yeah verdant’s heat sealer must have been under the weather on packing day… it happened a couple of years ago with the puriTea on black friday.

So is your cupboard back up to 150 yet? :D

Sil select said

funnily enough.. NO! totally didn’t expect as many teas from omgsrsly but i’m still just under 150…though i do have 27 more teas on their way + a swap lol

Oh no! My apologies on the heat sealer. We’ll be keeping a careful eye on it to make sure it does not happen again.

Sil select said

not to worry lily – these things happen :) i saved most of the tea!

My package from MissB for the 12 Days swap arrived today! :)

MissB said

Yay! Did you open it? I’m so anxious to start opening them, but will wait until the ‘right’ day.

CelebriTEA said

Miss B,
Are you tryna trick her?
I am so excited, I can barely stand it…lol…

Didn’t open it – just in case it’s not double enveloped.

My (first) Teavivre package came today, yay!

Dinosara said

First as in first of two orders from the same weekend, not first teas from Teavivre, hahaha.

CelebriTEA said

I was only able to manage a kinda small order from Butiki that weekend, so I am jealous…but not TOO jealous…I love Butiki :-)

Dinosara said

Aaand the second order came in. Way faster than the first!

MissB said

Heh. That picture is from Janelle, however I’m thrilled you hear you got the package!! Yay. :) Or, wait… did you get the box I sent you with a large amount of tea/samples, or the order direct from another company?

CelebriTEA said

Oops…I fixed it…hahahaha…
I’ve made a few mistakes on here the last couple of days.
Now might be the time to admit that I am a natural blonde.
So0o, I have to try a lot harder to get it right…lol..

MissB said

Yay! If it helps, I mix up images all the time. :)

CelebriTEA said

Thanks Miss B,

Glad to know I am not the only one :-)

I received my Teavivre order today, it was only a small one to spend the $10 voucher during the Black Friday run up give away. So I got a Mengku Arbor Tree Ripened Puerh Cake ZhenMu LingYa 2007 cake (357g) and 100g of Yun Nan Dian Hong Black Tea. For my free gift I got Christmas Tree Flower Tea :) Very festive.

Also I unfortunately had to say goodbye to my beloved glass Gongfu teapot due to a large crack on the side from causes unknown. She was well loved and as my first Gongfu she shall never be forgotten. So I bought a replacement online from a local source to make sure it was here in time for Christmas. It’s a different shape but same size and the company also gave me a 10g pouch of Pouchong for free. :)

ifjuly said

aw, sorry to hear about your gongfu pot. if you mean the one from teavivre, it’s my first gongfu pot (and first glass one) too and i ADORE it so i feel your pain. free pouchong with your new one sounds great though!

CelebriTEA said

Sorry to hear you lost your gongfu pot…
You gonna show us the new one?

@ifjuly Yes the one from Teavivre was the one I had. So simple in design yet so effective. I got it in a set with the small glasses last Christmas and it has been used very well in the space of a year.

@CelebriTEA Here is a picture of my new Gongfu.

I checked the mail at 4:30 hoping that, on top of the letter mail I had received today, some of the larger parcels from Black Friday would have shown up. No such luck, so I figured I was done with mail for the day.

However, as I was leaving for work at 5:30 I saw that my landlord had collected two parcels for me and left them on the stairs to my suite! So, I got my 52Teas BF order and some stuff from Red Leaf Tea as well! Woot!

VariaTEA said

Red Leaf Tea!! That must be so exciting. I have loved all the matchas I have tried so far.

It’s just the samples from November and December (I’m assuming I’m one of the couple people that actually had theirs shipped out since I was part of the group that helped him out with his email request) – but I’m excited to explore more without making the commitment to purchase a large amount. I’ve only tried two other kinds (plain matchaccino and black cherry matcha) but I really didn’t like either, so more exploring to do!

VariaTEA said

I want to try Black Cherry really badly. Mostly because I love Black Cherry soda. And hopefully you will have better luck with other matchas. I still have to check on the amounts I have – I plan on doing that tonight.

The black cherry tasted kinda like cherry nibs. I’m sure some people would love that, though I’m not a fan of nibs or other ‘red’ licorice – so wasn’t really for me.

VariaTEA said

Aww that is upsetting
