Huge tins of Roses and Lego in boxes
Notebooks and cupcakes and cute-as-pie foxes
Personally-labelled unusual teas
Twixes and Starbursts and Hello Kitties!
Ice-cream-shaped rubbers and novelty key-rings,
Cute pocket mirrors and delicious sweet things,
Spiced apple cider and chocolate orange
and PINK UNICORNS!!!!!
Which is rather serendipitous, given the contents of the parcel I received from Jen today :)
My initial excitement was quickly dusted with the icing sugar of curiosity when I saw the things Jen had listed for the customs declaration:
|Mystery Foam Crafts?! Oh me, oh my!|
The second I opened the box my senses were hit with a heady concoction of truly mouthwatering scents. It was how I imagine Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory might smell; sugary goodness with top notes of magic.
Under the first layer of tissue paper I found five(!) different kinds of tea, including one called Pink Flamingo and one containing actual chunks of chocolate. EEEEEEEEPPPPP! I've already had two cups of the Maple Black Tea, and can confirm it tastes like maple syrup. YUM.
|Maple Black Tea, Spiced Apple Cider Rooibos, Ceylon Breakfast Tea, |
Pink Flamingo Herbal Tea, and Orange Chocolate Sweet Spice Herbal Tea.
I think I've died and gone to Tea Heaven.
There was also a card from Jen, two tiny cards, a notebook (with a magnet on the back- genius!), a Hello Kitty keyring, a novelty rubber, and a pretty compact mirror.
It also revealed that the intriguing "foam crafts" alluded to on the packaging didn't even come close to describing the awesomeness within...
Just in case a ruddy UNICORN wasn't awesome enough, I then discovered a second layer which was FULL OF SWEETS.
This is the second parcel swap I've done with Jen and, although I wouldn't have thought it possible, it was even more magical than the first one. Thank you so much, Jen- you're totally amazeballs!
