Official *What did you get in the mail today?* Thread!!!
I got “Yunnan Premium Silver Thread”, Its 2009 but it’s still tasty :)
From Puerhshop.com, link wont work everything online is acting stupid for me today
I wrote about what I got here
I got a very small tea strainer in a very large box, through Amazon. It’s a pretty tea strainer, though; one of those English designs that sit on your cup to catch the leaves as you pour. A gift for a friend who is a bit of an Anglophile.
Here’s a not-very-good photo from Amazon: http://tinyurl.com/adevzx5
The strainer is fine wire mesh and is shown sitting in its fitted drip bowl. Looks to be quite nicely made — no rough edges or crappy solder joints. Color is shiny silver, darker than shown.
I want that! Exactly like that. How much was it? I have a whole dollar in credits at amazon lol
Awesome! thanks for the share :) so it’s a “pretty” brew basket haha. I like it :)
Swap package from another steepster!
Yessss!!! I got my first package from Verdant Tea.. My shu and sheng and as a free sample, the flowering green jasmine tea! My first pu’erh and my first flowering tea… I can’t wait to break into the shu this evening. :D
My Nina’s samples came in- Cancer and Pisces!
I got a box filled with Teavivre samples – super excited!!
Got my first swap packages ever, and I am now addicted to swapping!
Bananan Dream Pie
Cream of Earl Grey
Mellow Mango Peach
Ditto, love swapping…just wish half of you didn’t live in Canada with the ridiculous shipping rates I have to pay to send there.
yeah, after my first swap to tattooed I have to turn down canadians most of the time- $7 is way too much to be spending for swaps :/
It’s gotta be since they implemented the new shipping things. It used to be $4 at most. It use to cost me double to ship in Canada than to ship to the US.
When shipping use bigger envelopes so they are thin & can be sent regular mail.
Yup I still use a bubble mailer & they check to see if it fits through a plastic slot.
Swapping is awesome! I’m not letting myself do any more swaps till I’ve tried everything I got in the mail…I’m afraid I won’t ever get through it all! Its hard to have the willpower though :)
