Official *What did you get in the mail today?* Thread!!!
The Della Terra order came. Mmm… Mojito tea.
My samples from Courtney yay lime jello and soho!!!
Della Terra order! Woooot! The Apricot Carousel is getting put away for now until I get through the ounce I have open. Now to decide which try-me tea to make tonight.
STEEP CITY TEAS!!!! My order arrived, so pumped!
Though, my box arrived pretty banged up. http://wp.me/a3NHpm-E1 WTH USPS, first steal pomegranates off my tree and now abuse my tea?
Citrus Sunrise Oolong, Purple Peach White, Orange Glam, Choco Honeyberry, Nutty Love, Flirt With Me, annnnd Blushing Geisha!
Holy cow! That poor box looks like it was dropped off a cliff a few times. Lol.
They beat a box up on me this week breaking 2 of the 4 cups I got in an Ebay auction.
wah, that sucks mrmopar!
As far as I can see, my tea is fine. No dings on the tin, though the white tea might been crunched. They did put packing fluff, but that only does so much against crazy USPS. Should see my mail slot, the metal is bent on the inside from them jamming too big of boxes through.
I actually received my package from Stephanie yesterday. Can’t wait to try them all :)

Today I received a box from Teavivre with 200g of Yun Nan Dian Hong black tea! I had received a sample of this tea some time ago with another order, and fell in love with the tea!
Since it was on sale last week i ordered some for my cupboard.
I got a sample of that with my order today. Haven’t tried any Teavivre teas, really excited to try them. That one must be good if you ordered 200g :))
There is a lot of good tea on the Teavivre website, and many are counted among my favorites. But the Dian Hong is a particularly nice black tea. If you like strong tea brew it for 3 minutes, if you like a milder tea, go for 2 minutes.
I was drinking their black pearls last night and really enjoyed them. Will try the Dian Hong soon – sounds like 3 min steep. Thanks for the advice.

Awesome! Good tea day :D Interested to see your review of the plum matcha!
btw. What kind of milk is best for matcha? whole milk, almond, soy, rice?
I prefer the taste of real milk with matcha, but I am lactose intolerant so I have to take a pill to drink milk. So, sometimes I drink almond and like that just fine too :)
It was a fantastic day to receive mail! I got a swap from Dinosara, samples from Nina’s Paris, and more of the Organic Earl Grey from Tealicious to continue the Battle of the Earl Greys!
Got my swap from RogersCK today! Can’t wait to finally try Smaug and chocolate bacon! ;)
SBT mango peach is steeping now! :D
Yay, enjoy! I enjoyed Smaug Tea a lot.
I tried the Pu-erh mini cake you sent me and the taste triggered a memory of me trying and liking pu-erh at tea cellar back in 2008. Will definitely check out Butiki Tea’s Pu-erh. Thanks :)
