Official *What did you get in the mail today?* Thread!!!
Got my 52teas monthly shipment, a couple I want to try, though no real expectation that I’ll like them, and that mate blend and I hate yerba mate, so not real exciting actually.
Organic 1st harvest Domatcha.
I got my swap from GiggleGoddess yesterday and I can’t stop smelling that Huckleberry Black from New Mexico Tea Co. That one’s going on my shopping list! Thank you, GG!
I got my very first order from 52Teas. Very excited to try them I got:
Coconut Cheesecake Honeybush
Pineapple Bacon Rooibos
I’m making some of the Pineapple/Bacon right now. I went a bit conservative with the flavors except for this one, but had to get one strange one to see what it’s all about.
Della Terra finally got here! Still waiting for a joint order with Harney & Sons to ship, even though the order was placed on March 25th. Sigh.
For some reason Harney allows themselves up to/at least 5 business days just to process international orders. I learned this the hard way when I ordered from them, as the whole way through the checkout process they continued to post that it would be shipped within two days even though the site knew I was having it shipped to Canada. Even my confirmation e-mail didn’t mention the extra processing time. Just one of the reasons I never placed a second order. Hopefully they get yours in the post soon!
So ridiculous! I don’t know if I will be ordering again, either. That’s just insane. I even emailed them about it and they said it would be sent out yesterday or tomorrow, so I’m crossing my fingers for tomorrow. It’s already been about 9 days since the order was placed.
My zen tea order came!
I ordered coconut oolong, grandma’s garden, gyokuro sample and a T-Free tea tumbler.
The tumble looks even better in person, wow! and yay, samples!
wahh! Wish my bluebird tea co order was here! I thought it would be here today, hopefully tomorrow!
My swap from Ellen, my tea of the month from Teavana, and a super awesome gift from Jackie T.
Red Leaf sampler (i’m going to be having those tonight/tomorrow)
52 teas order of blueberry creamcheese danish and the st patricks day tea
technically…no because i’d already added them to my cupboard as soon as they landed at my tea mules place LOL
My swap from Yssah came today! Came with a few surprise teas that I’m excited to try. =)
I got my swap from Mitch today! Already disappointed that I can’t order from Simpson & Vail in Canada, hahaha! Stupid shipping.
I don’t understand what the issue is, really. I just sent off a pile of swaps today and each bubble mailer cost me $2.65 to send across the border. Seems reasonable.
I know… it seems silly to me. Same with shipping within the US. One company wanted to charge me $11 for 6 dollars worth of samples! Needless to say, I passed. I refuse to pay that much.
What was the weight on those mailers you sent? I just sent one out that was almost $9 to ship, but it was a little over 4 ounces.
Oh, they were just some samples, no more than 30g, probably. Still… $30 is completely ridiculous.
I agree jessi. I still want to order from S&V, but I am being held back by the shipping :(
I did email S&V to whine a bit, and got a response saying that they can send it First Class or something, for about $9 for the 6oz order I had in my cart. WAY more reasonable – I don’t know why that option isn’t on their website.
