Official *What did you get in the mail today?* Thread!!!
A really pretty gaiwan

Joseph Wesley Samples:
03 Classic Chinese
04 Dian Hong Congfu
05 Keemun Congfu
06 Bai Lin Congfu
And a non-tea package from my beloved Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab perfume oils
how did you get joseph wesley samples? I’ve really wanted to try their teas but 50g for something i’ve never tried is a bit much at this moment in time.
I had exactly the same issue. But someone, I think JenW showed me – if you go to this page:
On the far right is SA – Tea Samples. When you go to that page, you get them in multiples of three. You add the quantity and as you progress through checkout, they give you an opportunity to say which 3 you want. He threw in a fourth sample of Dian Hong Congfu.
thanks…totally didn’t see that, but now that you’ve pointed it out, it’s stupidly clear lol
Now i just need april to get here so i can order!
Don’t feel bad – I had to have them pointed out to me as well and April is ALMOST here!
I got some samples for Teavivre today, purchased with points. Super excited to try the tangerine ripe puerh! :)
Yay! My Yunomi order showed up today. I got a couple of samplers (Houjicha sampler and Sayamacha sampler), sencha flower blend, sencha summer citrus, and sakura tea.
Kusmi madness arrived at my doorstep today: the Afternoon Blends sampler tin set, the Green teas sampler tin set, and a big can of Violet tea.
I am really looking forward to testing everything, above all, the violet tea, as I love violet perfumes.
I received a super awesome welcome to spring tea package from Dexter3657. A total surprise!
My dad was down visiting yesterday and he got to my house before I did, so he picked up the mail. I was a total grumpus when I got home after a bad day.
Dad: “Who do you know in MB that is sending you stuff?”
Grumpus: “None of your business”
Dad: “Why does the package smell?”
Grumpus: “None of your business”
Dad: “What kind of weird stuff are you into?”
Grumpus: (Ponders answering: tea) “None of your business”
I received an unexpected and very generous package from Dexter3657…thank you so very much. I almost want to cry at how generous people on this site are, compared to the people that I see and deal with on a daily basis. Dexter…THANK YOU!!! You are such a wonderful and generous person. This was a wonderful surprise to come home to after an extremely long and stressful period in my life.
Husband accused me of buying more tea, and I had to show him package that it was from a generous Steepster buddy.
Thank you Dexter3657…YOU ARE AWESOME!!!
I got two packages in the mail—one’s a padded envelope and the other is an ordinary one.
but I don’t know who they’re from!
Haha awesome!! were the samples wrapped in tissue paper as well?
So excited! that solves one of the packages haha.
Wow! awesome. Problem solved. Looks like our detective work paid off :). Thank you!
I got a stash mystery package in the mail today from KallieBoo!!
Oh my goodness! Best tea day ever!
I got my American Tea Room Brioche, which I purchased hastily on the day last week they were offering free shipping on ANY order.
AND I got the BEST most awesome box of wonders from Boychik! OMG! Seriously, thank you thank you thank you!!! <3
So many awesome puerhs to try, some excellent looking straight blacks and misc teas AND some Fauchon! swoon
Best mail day ever. I got two surprise boxes from Dexter3657 and boychik, loaded with tea carefully chosen based on my tastes and wishlist (and precious—I know some of them must’ve been hard to part with like the Mandala Black Pearls and H&S’s potentially unavailable Nahorhabi, along with all of those fancy French teas that are hard to procure over here, Harney’s 30th Anniversary Blend and the Joseph Wesley and A&D Spring Keemun from the NYC fest, RiverTea and mysterious Chinese teas from AliExpress and the infamous David’s Blueberry Jam! And a fancypants coffee bean chocolate bar! And EVEN MORE), complete with wonderful, heartfelt notes. Put them up immediately on my fridge. I love Steepster so much. I was having a rough morning complete with arguing with the husband and then after coming from errands there they were. I am very humbled and touched by how kind and caring Steepsters are. <3
tea is a cure for bad mood. I’m glad you got two packages just in time.
I love Steepster. I’ve met such wonderful and caring people.
It’s not hard to part with teas when you sharing them with awesome people who appreciate them. :)) Glad you got some packages on a day that you could use a little cheering up.
