Official *What did you get in the mail today?* Thread!!!
Laoshan Black haaaaas arrived~~~~ Just hope I didn’t overhype it too much in my head. xD Gonna get some brewing. It came with a sample, Flowering Jasmine Green. Have no idea what I’m going to do with it though, ‘cause I don’t want to toss it, but I have nothing to brew it in… Guess I’ll just hold onto it just in case I get something suitable someday.
I got the flowering tea as a sample too, and I haven’t figured out what to brew it in either! I guess that’s why people buy glass mugs.
Thanks for the suggestions. :) I guess you get swept up in the tea stores telling you you need a blooming pot, haha. I’ll rummage around in my cupboard and see if I can find something. I really would like to try it; it’d be two firsts. My first flowering tea, and my first jasmine. xD
That flowering tea is pretty tasty, but it’s not really a jasmine tea. It’s a bit misnamed in my opinion. You should definitely seek out some jasmine pearls if you want a real intro to jasmine!
Ah okay, thanks for the suggestion. :) Is there a particular vendor you recommend?
Teavivre’s are great and I believe you can get a sample to try so you don’t have to invest too much. :)
I’m pretty sure my Verdant order is in the mail box, but the key is not working! Angst!
I got my DavidsTea order today… yay, Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble!
I’m also obsessively tracking my 52teas order of the S’mores Genmaicha… it was accepted in Wichita on the 13th, and hasn’t updated at all since then. I’m a little bit sad about this. :/
I got my first ever Butiki order today. Very excited. Quite impressed with how quickly this got to me. I got:
Almond Indulgence 1 ounce
Pumpkin Creme Brulee 1 ounce
Tamarind Pop 1 ounce
Pistachio Ice Cream 1 ounce
Cantaloupe & Cream 1/2 ounce
Coconut Cream Pie Rooibos 1 ounce
Good Morning Sunshine 1 ounce
Plus samples of Blueberry Purple, Organic Roasted Yerba Mate, and Maple Pecan Oolong. Thanks Stacy, everything looks great.
