Knit1Tea2 Package!

I had soo much fun with this swap! I got to shop for yarn and tea and make pretty things and talk to very nice other knitters.. all in all a great experience :) Not to mention the wonderful package I received yesterday! Thank you so much, Jennifer!
So, the goods, I got:

FOUR kinds of organic Green Tea! Lemon Mint, Sencha, "Fog Lifter" green tea, and a Genmai Matcha. I haven't seen Matcha since I left Japan, so that should be interesting! Also because that one is a genmai matcha, it has toasted brown rice in it. Looks very different from the matcha I'm used to. I'm sure it will be excellent :)
AND I got a TEA STICK to steep them in! I'm sooo excited about this, I've wanted one for a long time now and had never seen it in person. VERY cool invention. Check it out! http://gamilacompany.com/tea/

I got a pack of yummy-looking Chocolate scone mix, a skein of Malabrigo worstead in varigated greens (SO SOFT), a Caribou Coffee car coaster, some cafe mints, and a handknit tea towel and washcloth set! And look! The tea towel has a teapot knit into it and it says TEA at the bottom! How clever! I couldn't get a good picture of the washcloth, but it has a teacup and says tea as well :)


And it all came with a nice little note all tight in a tin. Thank you so much Knit and Tea pal! The yarn is so soft it will have to be a hat or neckwarmer..something next to the skin :)

I'm so glad you like your package! I really couldn't resist that Malabrigo...and may have to go get some for myself. :)

What an awesome swap! I've never heard about it before, but I'll definitely have to check it out! And that tea towel is uber cute... I'm pretty jealous, not gonna lie...!
