So I got a surprise(ish) package from Butiki today. Not so much of a surprise because my Mom ordered it via me so I knew it was coming. But a surprise because she actually gave it to me instead of wrapping it for Christmas.
My Mom wanted to get me tea for Christmas but didn’t know what to get me, and she knew I wanted to take advantage of their black friday sale. So she just gave me the money to order for her. Lol!
So I got all sorts of wonderfulness today which was great because I was having a rotten day. Can’t have any of it because I’ve been feeling nauseous all day and don’t want to spoil the tea.
So I got Peach HoppiTea, Irish Cream Cheesecake, Doke Rolling Thunder, The Black Lotus, 2003 Reserve Four Season Oolong, Purple Sunset Oolong, & Irish Breakfast.
And I got these as the free tea – White Rhino, Dinjoye Estate Assam, Caramel Vanilla Assam.

You should be getting the package from me today. But I don’t think post delivers on Saturdays, so probably Monday, which means probably next week sometime later. I’m very anxious about the packaging, so I hope everything works out.

Dear USPS:

I realize that this is your busy season. But if you accept payment for 1-day delivery, you should hold up your end of the bargain. 3 days is most certainly not 1 day. Get it together.

Sincerely,
Kaylee

My Butiki Black Friday order finally came! Yay! Or, more precisely, my order of tea and my SO’s order of teaware for me both arrived today. So much pretty teaware! Awesome Hannukah present. Everything was even nicer than I was expecting from the website photo. The twist canister is huge. The earthen gaiwan (green) is lovely and seems easy to use. The Chinese gaiwan is f***ing gorgeous. Love love love. The lidded porcelain cup is slimmer than I expected but very pretty. I’m super happy with all the teaware!

and

So. Much. Tea. Bwahaha. I screwed up my order like a dummy and got some of the wrong teas, but it’s my own fault (not that that will stop me from pouting about not getting the tea I wanted/expected).

This marks the end of my Black Friday orders, I think, and puts me at exactly 170 teas. Oy. Don’t tell anyone.

my verdant tea cash order! :D i can finally try all the blends people’ve been talking about. and they were awesome as always—like a doofus i forgot to check the box to send it to a different address than billing, AND i messed up my actual order by deleting the wrong thing to add more of something else i didn’t intend to. i emailed them and they responded right away fixing it all before it went out, even though that meant making one of the teas an unorthodox amount to set it to the price i’d already paid. so great.

My Black Friday Butiki order showed up today! Thank you Canada Post for delivering on Sundays during the Christmas season!

The box was pretty crushed, but when I opened it up all the tea inside was perfectly fine! Whew…

I had an awesome tea day!
I received a missing in action package from China that had samples of a variety of Dancong and the seller included what I think is about 1 oz of a yet to be id’d black as a sample.

A tin of chai and a surprise card from JusTea. ( they weren’t sure that it was going to arrive before Christmas, so good job Canada Post!)

A wonderful package from CrowKettle including samples of Verdant’s Fujian white Jasmine, Utopia teas Berkshire Apple Fig, and Butiki Samples:
Vanilla Frosted Carrot Cake
Premium Taiwanese Assam
Ruby Pie
Potato Pancakes and Applesauce,
Caramel Vanilla Assam,
And Tawainese Wild Mountain Black

The last 5 were an awesome surprise! Thank you so much.

Very nice!
