Got my swap package from Dexter3657. Wow! That box was crammed! I am a SWAP convert! Smells delicious. Too many teas to list. Now where do I start?

And on that note….
I came home to a fantastic swap package for Ubacat. Tons more in here than what I was expecting. Thank you so much!!! :))
I got this gaiwan set today that you guys helped me pick out.
It came with some metal tweezer/tong things. What are those for?
I think the tongs are for holding slash moving around the pieces when you steralize/ rinse them with tea or water.
Yay! It has been fun expeirmenting with it. Enjoy. So what will be the first tea grace the gwaiwan?
I got my second swap from Roswell Strange!!! With bonus stickers!!!
I am a happy camper!!!
