Just got my A and D order in the mail: Spring and Chinese New Year teas. Spring came with a button which says tea lover. Awesome. But Chinese New Year comes with a horse, yes a horse, finger puppet. Tea time has never been more fun :D
I just received the most amazing kyusu that I have ever seen…
I had double joy today cause I got swaps from Stephanie and CharlotteZero. The generosity of these Steepsteres is just insane. Thank you so much. I’m very touched. I feel like a kid with Pokemon cards, keep staring at them;-)
I got an unexpected package from Jude with a bunch of teas, a bar of chocolate and a beautiful card! :O THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!
Jumping up in down in shorts (it’s finally shorts weather!) this afternoon when I saw it on the stoop. As soon as I opened the mailing box I was hit with a flood of sunny lemon sugar and fresh fruit aroma, heaven. It’d been a little while so I’d forgotten how special it is when something from Stacy arrives. Also, she was so generous with the free samples I feel embarrassed, think I’m going to stop mentioning specific ones I’m interested in because then she sends ALL of them. :O
This morning was hectic and I was running on too little sleep doing everything, didn’t even get a chance to sit for a cup of tea until right around when I checked the mail at 3pm. Now I’m sipping Lemon French Macaron and the world is a pretty place.
I aaaaaaalso got my Red Leaf order today (couldn’t resist that Caramel sale), which I’m super excited about even though matcha and I have a relationship that seems to run rather hot and cold ‘cause I got some flavors I’m way intrigued by—Panettone, Pistachio, Peanut Butter Pie, and Butternut Pie. It’s finally warm enough to make cold matcha lattes a viable breakfast, mm!
Glad your order arrived safely and that you are happy with the sample selection, hahaa. :)
“Almost a surprise” tea package from Dexter! woot woot! Stupid Canada Post decided to take EXTRA long in delivering this one to me. But it arrived! YIPPEE!!!
i got my Upton tea order of samples of Assam and Keemun. Cant wait to try.
v. curious to see what you think of them. it’s been so long since i’ve drank any upton, i should revisit sometime. they’re just so overwhelming sometimes, how it feels like they have 20 of every tea type.
I only tried Nahorhabi and while it was good its not the same. Maybe I should play with temps and time
yeah, my recollection with upton is quite a few of the ones i’ve tried can be good, but they’re finicky re: steep parameters, not as forgiving if you don’t do ’em just so.
