Gotta love the postal service. I got my second TTC order first, and my first TTC order is in customs limbo…

DAVIDsTea – Ice Blue Carry Mug, The Chai Collection, and Apple Pie Perfect Match

Taiwan Tea Crafts – Pumice Clay Large Tulip Tea Cup, Craquelure Rose Small Trivet, Satin Blue Gaiwan, Satin Blue Tulip Tea Cup, Mei Xue Small Tea Caddie in Blue, Red Jade Black Tea Lot 268, and Bag Sealing Pins (blue, bright yellow, orange, green, red)

I got the new fall DAVIDsTea menu, but no fall samples yet.

Second boychik, they have some beautiful pieces. Enjoy them.

I adore my blue gaiwan and will probably get the rest of the set when I get paid. The pumice clay teaware is pretty nice too. I love the texture and the glaze is so beautiful.

I received two small orders today, one from Mandala Tea and the other from Teavivre. From Mandala I got the Gaba Black and 2009 Mengku Jade Dew. I read a really good review of this second tea from Sarsonator and decided to buy it. Found space for it in my small pumidor. From Teavivre I received the Bailin Gongfu Black, Da Hong Pao Wuyi Rock Oolong, and Rose Dian Hong Black Tea. I received two free samples with each order.

The photo is a little blurry, but my cell phone flash won’t work right with instagram, drives me nuts, it works with the phone.

Nice!

I’ve been away/busy/tired for the past week and a half. Today I finally had a chance to open my Teavivre packages! One was full of review samples, and the other had my awesome new teapot set. So tiny and cute! And they included a pretty tea mat! Squee!

My Whispering Pines sampler came. It has Golden Orchid, Fujian Black (aka Fujian S’mores), and North Winds.

Oh, so happy for you!

All the teas I picked are so good, I wish the samples were a little bigger.

SarsyPie said

Tealizzy said

Awwww!

That is extra wee!

Tealizzy, Thank you, Awwwww is right! It’s so hard to find them so small!!!

Lol, all my other yixing look HUGE beside it!!

Haha! Stephanie you’re so right :-)

Cheri select said

That is sooooo cute!

Very nice. Where did you get that?

And also… acorns!

SarsyPie said

Love it so much!!!

Lariel thanks! I was lucky, I met a collector online and got “private help” sort of speck :-)

Sarsy, it’s a good day for both of us today!! :-)

Lovely! It seems like you receive a new yixing every day lol. I wish I were in your shoes. Now that I have my very first I have the urge to buy so manyyyyy. siiiiiiiiiigh.

Lol, kiwidelight, that’s the problem…after your first pot, you want ALL THE YIXING!!!!

apt said

Fang Gu…. What are you dedicating that to?

Can I ask how many you have? Or is that a dangerous question? :3

Apt, haven’t quite decided yet…I want simething real special for it so might save it exclusively for Da Hong Pao. Will see :-)

Lol, Kiwidelight, I don’t have that many…yet! With the ones in transit, I will have a total of 12.

oh my gosh I want to see a pic of all of them together!! they must be like kittens or puppies – you just gotta have them.

apt said

That looks like an excellent pot for yancha, good choice. Test the pour time first though, if it’s like 4sec or less you’re good. Where’d you get it from

Ubacat said

So cute!

Aww its adorable!

Oh kiwidelight, for sure I will do a group shot when they’re all here! And yes, they are totally like little pets :-)

Apt, I got private help from a collector.

Thanks ubacat :-)

apt said

Cool! Would you mind elaborating (over PM if you feel it’s necessary)

boychik said

LOVE the teapot , my dear TTF. Enjoy!!!

You ladies have pet teaware? That is both silly and cute.

Lariel I got a piggy tea pet from Teavivre recently :DDD

Apt, I will pm you later…

Thanks boychik, I know how much you can appriciate that ;-)

Lariel, I “create” my own tea pets…acorns, semi precious stones and river rocks are my favourites.

mj said

TTF, it’s so adorable I can’t even stand it! It’s so teeny, it makes those acorns look big! That picture is so Fall

Thank you mj, I can’t even stand it myself!!! :-)

I want a clay dragon or something.

Picked up my Verdant Blends of the month…disappointed with the vanilla theme take on things. :( Also picked up my Nina’s Paris order.

Both are small, so not a huge increase in cupboard size, but an increase nonetheless.

I was also disappointed by the vanilla blends… :(

Dexter said

Boo!!! You finally buy tea and are disappointed!!!!

Sil select said

oolong, licorice and jasmine…without giving things away. :(

I actually did like the oolong. :)

boychik said

:(

Sil select said

you never know…maybe i’ll love them :)

I got two packages in the mail today. One a ripe puerh from EBay, the other a package of heavy duty plastic foil bags so I can swap tea with people here. Now I just have to finish adding teas to my cupboard.

Where did you get the foil bags from?
