Official *What did you get in the mail today?* Thread!!!
I received two TTBs. Tea and Card TTB and Samples TTB! Plus the 37 teas I bought in Sarasota. Holy moly! I may explode! :D
@ camereon duck tales just totally put a smile on my face:) I used to love that show:)
My Teavivre anniversary sampler has been in Chicago for 6 days now, and it hasn’t been updated in 4 days. I guess this is another sign to maintain my tea buying ban, since I was planning on using the sample to help me choose which teas to buy.
If it was stuck at my post office it would almost make sense. My mailman even told me that he notices that I get a lot of “special packages” and so hes memorized my name. He probably thinks I import illegal drugs. Haha, but nope, that only drug I’m addicted to is caffeine.
Little order of just Laoshan Black Chocolate Genmaicha from Verdant came yesterday.
Today brought a duo of coconut teas from Zen Teas along with a surprise sample of Curled Dragon Silver Tip.
My Butiki package! So so excited! I got:
1994 Aged Bai Hao
Butterscotch & Hazelnut Mocha Candies
Red Queen Cupcake
and samples of:
Plum Brandy Cheesecake (double serving for participating in the Whispering Pines/Butiki contest!)
Kaylee, did you ever get an email telling you that your order was shipped? I haven’t gotten one yet…
Cameron B-We are waiting until all orders have been shipped before emailing since we are trying to push out all of the orders as fast as possible. PayPal will send an email to US customers when it ships but not Canadian or international. We gave ourselves 6 business days to get everything out, which would be this Tuesday. I’m hoping we can make that happen. About 45% of the orders have gone already.
Thanks so much for the update, Stacy! Can’t wait to try all the teas. :D
Just a little FYI update, we are down to the very end! Just 2 problem orders and a few orders that are waiting on fresh batches of tea (those should go out tomorrow). :)
I just got my Hamilton Beach programmable kettle! Hooray! Now I don’t have to guestimate temperatures anymore! Wooooo
I need a variable temperature kettle so bad! I stick a candy thermometer in my kettle now haha.
Enjoy yours :)
Variable temp kettles are the best things that ever happened to tea, enjoy yours!
And mj, whatever works for now…if it’s a candy thermometer, then be it!!! But I really hope you get one soon :-)
TTF, I have one picked out on my birthday wishlist, so I’m hoping for one then :). I only have to make it to Halloween! That’s not so far away, I suppose.
I am looking forward to this new chapter in my tea-life. I was way too lazy to use a thermometer, so I was in dire need of a variable kettle :P
I’ve got that one and I love it. Just a word of advice – if you’re heating small amounts of water, it usually heats about 10 – 15 degrees over whatever you’ve set it to, depending on how much water. Like if I’m only heating enough water for my 12oz cup (usually around 16oz) and I want it at 200 degrees, I’ll set the temp to 185/190 and it usually goes up to the 200 temp I want. Lol! I’m probly being a bad kettle owner and heating under the minimum amount, but I hate heating up a whole bunch of water that I probly won’t use and I don’t like leaving water in the kettle.
I received my Stash Sale package from Virginia and I received the Tealephone package.
Got my personalized sampler from Teavivre today.
Woo, coming home after a week of being out of town is like Christmas! I had several lovely packages waiting for me, including:
TeaTiff sent me an ounce of Buttered Rum from David’s just out of the kindness of her heart! Thanks dear! :D
My TeaVivre sampler pack, including the two puerhs, Dian Hong Full-leaf, Ancient Wild Tree Black, and Guang Dong Phoenix Dan Cong. Hooray!
A tin of Fauchon’s Peach & Thyme that the generous Shadowfall purchased locally and mailed to me. Thanks again, the tin is so cute!
My swap from Roswell Strange: Marshmallow Treat Genmaicha (52teas), The des Poetes (DF), Spicy Chocolate (Kusmi), Watermelon Xylophone (Butiki), Candied Almond (Cuppa’T), and Blueberry Jam (David’s). She also included a couple of bonus samples, hooray! My very first international swap! :D
A swap from Ost, which included a large amount of Champagne Infused Tea from Red Leaf, and a couple of smaller freebie samples. Thanks dear!
My purchases from kimquat’s stash sale: Dark Chocolate Oolong (WP), Pure Bud Black Tea (Mandala), Vanilla Mint (Golden Moon), and a super cute washi tin! :D
Thanks everyone for making my homecoming so happy! :P
My order from Beautiful Taiwan Tea showed up yesterday. That was much faster than I anticipated it being here.
they’re based in Indiana, so shipping is a bit faster than ordering from Taiwan. what’d you get?
I hadn’t realized they were in Indiana, which I would have if I’d clicked on contact us. Ah well.
I got samplers of:
Four Seasons Oolong (One Love)
Golden Lily Milk Oolong
Misty Mountain Oolong
Highest Mountain ShanLinXi Reserve Oolong
Shangri-La Dream (one of the guest brews, and it’s no on the website anymore)
Twisted Green (BiLuoChun)
Eeeeeee!!!!! My sheng pot finally arrived!!!!! So excited! Boiling now!!!
Th packaging was lovely. It arrived in a beautiful box with a tea towel, a drawstring pouch, a lid string, and brochure from the artist. I wish I could read the brochure!!!!
This one is a classic beauty. Enjoy :-)
(What do you mean you don’t read Chinese??? I can read it from here…it says: bless you sweet girl and now, let’s sheng together!!!)
I know a little French, and a few words in Spanish, but thats about it!
The pot is seasoning now in some lovely sheng. I cant wait to make tea in it later!!!! I may be pulling an all-nighter LOL
Here you go, my dears!!!
