Butiki order came today with the Taiwanese Wild Mountain Black and Caramel Vanilla Assam, with samples of With Open Eyes and Birthday Cake. Too bad I immediately turned around and left town for the weekend, so I won’t get to them until Monday!

Glad the teas arrived safely. I hope you have a good weekend trip. :)

I was really angry at my mail guy who delivered this package. I put it box down and went back to the backyard to finish up something, and I caught the mail man yanking pomegranates off my tree!

^Very not cool. I hope he apologized and returned your fruit to you.

I also received my Verdant order today, not sure why USPS sent it on a detour through Chicago, but it arrived safe and sound.

Glad it arrived, despite the detour!

Got my Teavivre order with my peach jasmine pearls, unbridled love fruit tea and a bunch of samples. It took a long time but when I got it, the box was all wrapped up with Canadian customs tape- that’s why it took forever. Not only did customs open the box, they opened one of the teas. They opened the outer foil package and also cut open the inner foil package that contained the tea, then taped it shut. Never had that before.

when did you order yours lala? Wondering if this happened with my order too seems to be taking ever so much longer than the lsat time i ordered from them

Lala said

I picked it up today at post office, but they tried to deliver it yesterday when I wasn’t home. Ordered July 25/13

Dexter said

They opened one of the actual tea packages? How rude. I’ve never had that either. I’ve had boxes opened by customs, but not actual tea packages.

Lala said

Yes the actual tea package! I am kind of concerned they went to the bathroom, didn’t wash their hands, touched every one of the pearls, coughed on them, then sealed the bag with tape. I’m still gonna drink it though. Ha ha. Never had customs go that far either. I have always just had them open the box, then seal it back up. Teavivre labels and packages things very well so not sure what was so concerning about the peach jasmine pearls.

Wow, that’s horrible! :/ peach jasmine pearls sound really good though

I got an order from Adagio, some tea tins and a bunch of different samples. It got here so quickly that I think they were hiding in the bushes outside my house and delivered it as soon as I hit “submit” on the online order.

LOL!

Maybe they have a TARDIS, and sent it before you ordered.

Got my serious haul of Ceylon Star from DavidsTea in the mail today. 8.8oz! That’s right! Boo yah!!! Filled up the two cute purple tins I bought with it, as well as the tin I already had! Guess I won’t need to worry about running out anytime soon! I also got my second elephant mug. :) It was pretty awesome that it came in 4 days. Last time I made an order, it was almost 2 weeks! Nice timing this time…I guess I know what I’m doing this weekend!
