Official *What did you get in the mail today?* Thread!!!
I got my tiny Yixing teapot from Teavivre today!
This is the one I got: http://www.teavivre.com/xi-shi-yixing-clay-teapot
Thanks TheTeaFairy and everyone else who recommended vendors. I feel a new addiction coming on, so I expect I’ll be trying some of the other options in the near future. ;-)
Yay! Congrats Morgana!!
OMG you got it super fast!! Did you go to China to pick it up yourself??
Hope you enjoy it as much as I do :-) Sadly, I broke 2 in the last month, but managed to keep this one intact, lol!
And yes, easy to become addicted, been having itchy fingers all over again… (Well I do have to replace the broken ones, don,t you agree??)
TF, I know, I was so surprised! I expected it to come on the slow boat. LOL. But it only took about a week from ordering to arrival, and it was packed so amazingly, they could have used it to play hockey and it wouldn’t have broken. Now I need to prepare for the seasoning part. So excited! Seems like this is a favorite for shu, so I think I will use it for that and I hope I’ll finally feel encouraged to break out some of my pu-erh collection I’ve been avoiding… because daunted. (But then I need one for sheng, and one for green oolong and one for toasty oolong and and and and…) Fingers are definitely itching and it is only a matter of time. Of course you need to replace the broken ones. Is that a serious question? ;-)
scribbles, thanks, I am looking forward to much fun! Will cross fingers that you get to cross it off your list soon.
Oh, it’s beautiful… enjoy! I don’t have a yixing yet so this year I’m planning on getting the first. I love Teavivre’s collection.
It’s good to know they pack it so well. I would like to get a gaiwan from them, possibly with cups, once I decide to order :)
The yixing pot is lovely!
Kat, it was a truly amazing packing job. Oh, and I forgot to mention my two tea samples (free with purchase). I picked two that were very highly rated here, Yun Nan Dian Hong and Superfine Tan Yang Gong Fu. Haven’t tried them yet but looking forward to it.
Red Leaf Tea matcha sample came today- Acai berry. Looks like the samples are 5 servings each, FYI!
i finally got my partial package from Vente-Privee Fauchon teas i ordered on feb3. huge box unpaded with 4 tins. one was opened and tea was spilled all over. i made a phone call, send a pic and they took care of it. i still dont have Chocolate Eclaire;(
My surprise pack from MissB came in! I can’t believe how much she stuffed in there. I suspect she made no money on me, but I am really happy. I can tell she went through my shopping list and put a bit of thought into what to send!
Thank you! :D
I got a lovely package from VariaTEA with Irish Cream Cheesecake (Butiki) and a sample of Marshmallow Snowflake EG (Herbal Infusions). Yum!
I got an email saying that my package from Teavivre arrived, but apparently the postman didn’t deliver the package. I was home at the time, and they didn’t even leave a paper pickup notice! So steamed.
Anyways, the post office will have my item to pick up tomorrow. And then I’ll have my oolong samples and a nice new glass teapot.
I had the same thing with my TeaVivre order. I asked at the post and evidently TeaVivre requires a signature, hence why mine wasn’t left there. I also didn’t get a paper notice. Mine was at the post the same night though, but I only knew because I checked the online tracking. :)
I received my DavidsTea perfect infusers today. YAY! The free samples were assam banaspaty, vanilla rooibos, and strawberry rhubarb parfait. No other teas ordered by me because I’m currently on a tea-buying hiatus. Who knew this would be a sneaky way to acquire more…
i got an awesome package from TeaPet. made my day. Thank you.
