Official *What did you get in the mail today?* Thread!!!
The Just Organic Tea samples came. They sent me all the flavours!
My Just Organic Tea samples arrived today as well! SO over the moon at the variety they sent! I can’t wait to try them all.
The tracking number from my package from QueenofTarts said that it was out for delivery, so I was stalking the mailbox all day (I have the kind of mail where all the mail for the street is in one stand alone box). Finally, after coming home from grocery shopping, the mail arrived. And I was super excited to see not only my purchase from QueenofTarts’ stash sale, but also the Just Organic Tea samples that I requested (and then some, they sent me every flavor) came today. I’m endlessly amazed at how quick they both got here! Having never tried loose leaf tea before, its exciting to now have so many options to chose from! I’m supposed to be studying for my final in an hour, but instead I’ve spent the majority of the last 3 hours in the kitchen steeping and resteeping and sampling all my goodies!
I received my Just Organic Tea samples also! AND a package from MissB! I did a little dance at the mailbox. Luckily my neighbors weren’t around.
I got my Wild Monk sheng cake from Mandala today, and a box to store it in that has some room to spare! Anything wrong with storing other puerhs in there with it since there is room?
OMG! I got the Just Organic Tea samples! They include all their teas! They gave me twelve teas as well as an organic sugar sample. The only problem I have is that I have the Butiki TTB. I have to get it in the mail by Wednesday! So much tea, so little time. :D Happy girl!
As others have mentioned the Just Organic Tea samples arrived today and they spoiled me rotten with all the samples!
I also got my Just Organic Tea samples. Totally unexpected and awesome. And not to look a gift horse in the mouth, but while it’s incredibly nice that they sent me samples of all their teas, I rather wish they hadn’t since I was really only interested in the ones I had asked about. Lol. Not to mention the two spice teas made everything else smell and are so strong smelling I actually feel ill from them. x.x I’m hoping that the smell didn’t permeate into the rest of the teas….And I’ll probly end up tossing these into the TTBC that will be coming in the near future since I have no interest in the rest of them. Lol.
I put divided up the packets by smelly ones, not smelly, and plain, put the packets in containers with a little baking soda and covered them for about 2 hours. It seemed to help. (I didn’t put the packets touching the baking soda) I left the smelly ones in with the baking soda a little longer.
Huh. Never thought of doing that. I just dumped the ones I wanted out onto a little foil and folded them up into little packets.
So far the assam that I made didn’t have any sort of spice taste to it, so I think they’ll be alright. ^^
I was surprised to get the number of samples they sent as well. I was happy to get so many as there are several I’ve not had anything like. I too was worried about the strong smelling ones affecting the others too.. I separated them from the rest of the bunch and hope they haven’t change their flavor. I haven’t tried any of them yet so time will tell.
