I signed up for this tea swap through Mad Pots of Tea and received my package this week. Inside was 5 Adagio jasmine flowering teas, honey straws and a box of cookies all wrapped up in pretty spring tissue paper and a lovely note. I was so excited because I'd seen those teas from Adagio and never tried them. I bought some for my mom one year for Christmas but never purchased any for myself. This package made my swap seem boring even though I had my current fave along with smaller samples of 6 other types of teas I rotate with. I wish I'd thought of adding some paper tea bags or candies or something more!
And as for my package, I shipped it out on April 5th with delivery confirmation. Last time I checked the DC the current info was that the package just left the Elk Grove, Illinois post office on April 10th! WTF USPS??? My package sat around for 5 days in a post office not more than 20 miles away from me! I could have driven it to my swap lady in 8 hours! *arghh*
Now it is time to head downstairs with a book and make some tea! I've been rushed all day and only had one cup this morning. I need to chill out and drink some tea in my lovely china cups. Tea tastes so much better when sipped from dainty china cups. It's more relaxing that way.
