Official *What did you get in the mail today?* Thread!!!
Whoa, what a day for tea! Since my last post, my order from Butiki came in, too.
This one was for Potato Pancakes & Applesauce, Pineapple Cilantro Cream, Almond Indulgence, Maple Pecan Oolong, & Pumpkin Creme Brulee. I also received samples of Raspberry Truffle (which I could smell as soo as I opened the box!) and Coconut Cream Pie.
This is my first order from Butiki, but after reading all the rave reviews on here, I’m dying to try everything. Especially the potato pancake & applesauce tea. It’s tea with chunks of potato; how could I NOT be dying to try it!
I got my VitaCost Order as well as some stuff from Barre Bars, Boku, and Oriya Organics :)
Got some tea mail today that we been much looking forward to :)

I just got a package from Verdant. Laoshan Black. Earl of Anxi. Anxi Fo Shou Black Tea, and a sample of flowering green jasmine. Tea Time MF-ers!!
Great stuff. I wish your friend Wang Huimin would let some of that Anxi Fo Shou hang out with some jasmine flowers. That would be killer.
Glad the tasting’s going well. :) You know, we are visiting Wang and the Bi Family in Anxi at the end of April.. We’ll have to see what exciting new teas the Bi’s have been working on since we last spoke face to face!
How exciting! If you bring any new teas home that need a place to crash, I’ve got room at my apartment :)
Got my order from Della Terra Teas!
2 oz Blueberry Crumble
2 oz Pineapple Upside Down Cake
2 oz Oatmeal Raisin Cookie
Sample Hearts and Roses
I am so excited, I can’t wait to try them all!
Got my swap from Alysha today! =)
Excited to get into these teas. I’ve got some sipping down to do!
I got some really nice tea samples from http://yunomi.us/
Gyokuro and a Sakura tea! I was warned on that Sakura tea being very very different.

Yay, my Verdant order arrived! Laoshan black, anxi fo shou, autumn harvest laoshan green (I think my bff will like this more than me, based on sniffing the leaves), laoshan village chai, ginger sage, chocolate phoenix chai, sample of jasmine flower.
So far? Fancy teas = interesting and require deep thought. :)
I’m drinking the chocolate phoenix (i did eenie meenie miney moe!), and it’s so far not my favourite. I’m going to try the laoshan village chai during my next study break.
I got a package from Starfevre with 3 teas from republic of tea, a raspberry rose hibiscus, a hibiscus key lime, and a hibiscus vanilla apple. I really like the vanilla apple, haven’t gotten to trying the others yet though. <3 Starfevre :)
