Official *What did you get in the mail today?* Thread!!!
Small sample package from VariaTEA – two Nina’s Paris samples, and more of Camellia Sinensis’ des Roses et des Bonbons! Yay!
Tea exchange from cavocorax and swap in the mail from VariaTEA yay for more tea with still enough time to drink it all down before the end of the month!
My roommate came home and handed me an AMAZING swap package from NayLynn, complete with a whole package of Strawberry Marshmallow Treat Genmaicha and a bunch of tasty looking samples. Thank you!!
Imperial Dark Bulang Gong Ting
Simpson & Vail:
A LOT of Kashmir Rose(!)
Victorian Earl Grey
My swap from Courtney arrived today, and my Amoda box came in yesterday!
Oh, and Sil gave me 72 teas today when we did a quick swap downtown.
I am drowning in teas. It’s amazing. I’m at 253, but a lot of it is really small samples and I expect to get that number down quickly. I’m not allowed to buy more until I hit 150. /newrule/
Drowning, shmowning….as key change would say, I only gave you a small suitcase ;)
I just realized I have 48 different Adagio samples now, between you, MissB, Shmiracles and the ones I grabbed. I hope Shmiracles’ box to you bumps you up A LOT. :P
(lurking in the corner enjoying this exchange – makes me happy to know that I’m not alone with my cupboard issues…)
hahahaha yes… but that’s because we regularly share teas…so i just toss it in her box until i gets full. Similarly with a few other ppl.. :)
Well, I noticed that in your tasting notes you very often mention that you put the rest of such and such a tea for this or that person… So I shouldn’t have been surprised that it eventually amounts to something like 72! :D
if it makes you feel better, terri’s box to me was about 60 the other day hahahah
Lol, if that’s a “quick swap” I’m afraid to imagine what a “slow swap” would look like!!
(Oh, and +1 with Dexter)
I received a generous package of samples from Teavivre. Thanks! Looking forward to trying them. I’ve been looking after an injured relative recently, but I look forward to spending some quality time with my teas shortly.
My mystery package from MissB arrived today!!! Thank you!
My Butiki order arrived in the mail today and then I found my Red Leaf order sitting at my door. I’m excited to try the Butiki samples! This will also be my first time trying a flavored matcha… Caramel MATCHAccino. :)
I just finished trying it blended with almond milk and ice and it’s delicious! Now I understand…
Hahaha! Yes. It is so delicious. Especially the MATCHAccinos. The Coconut MATCHAccino is also a great choice hint, hint. :P
Great tea day! I got my Butiki order and the mystery package from MissB. Getting ready to have Maple Pecan Oolong right now :)
