Official *What did you get in the mail today?* Thread!!!
My swap from Jessiwrites came in today! I have so many packages coming in (mostly from swaps), so it’s nice that this came in while I was home sick. The rest will be picked up by my boyfriend who might wonder what’s up when the rest show up. :D
Got my 52teas order! Woohoo! Too bad I can’t drink the French toast tea until morning!!
I got my 5 for 5$ verdant sampler! Really excited to try everything. I didn’t like the laoshan black as much as i thought i would (though i did enjoy it)
It’s tough when a tea has so much public love because you get this inflated idea of what it will taste like and then if it is anything less than manna from heaven you feel disappointed. At least I do. I have this with books and movies too.
Oh man i know :( it happens so much with me i often just avoid really popular things even if i had an interest in them to begin with. I mean, the laoshan was yummy but it didn’t suit me very well despite having some of my favorite flavors in it. Oh well! I’m in love with verdant’s yu lu yan cha black so i’ve at least found something i can love :)
I think people get confused by all the reviews talking about chocolate/brownie/cocoa flavors. There is a difference better chocolate FLAVORED teas and a roasty tea with some chocolate notes, you know?
Oh yeah one time my friend told me to try a tea cuz it had chocolate flavors in it and little did i know it had actual chocolate in it… Blegh. I’m not a fan of anything other than straight tea :((
Got an order from Capital Tea in Canada – apricot, mango and Marco Polo with a generous sample of vanilla. Making some Marco Polo right now.
I got two amazing care packages this morning, from Dexter3657 and cteresa! These weren’t even proper swaps, just the two of them being awesome and sending me tea as I’d broken my arm. The best cheering-up ever!
YAY! my tea from cavocorax finally showed up!
Received an order of five samples from Persimmon Tree Tea Company. I’ve already tried two, and nothing is blowing my skirt up just yet, but happy to try something new.
Waiting for a few more orders coming in the next couple days!
My 52 teas French Toast black tea arrived! I baked some bread that I’m going to set aside for french toast and hopefully do a review soon!
I received Phoenix Oolong from Boutique Teas. I actually won this months ago in a contest from SororiTea sisters but never got the tea. I had totally given up hope but it looks like they sent it on May 20th. I am excited to have a moment to sit down with it this week! Surprise tea is the best.
