HAGI SO #3 Deishi Gyokuro Pieces

Artisan Teaware Special Offer Program

Postby kymidwife » Jul 21st, '09, 14:56

Sigh.... I made a quick trip home from work over lunch to check and see if my Hagi is here. No such luck. :(

I checked my EMS tracking and the package arrived to Chicago 2 days ago... no updates on its status since 8am yesterday morning, which is rather frustrating. It just said "Departure from Inward Office of Exchange" as its location in Chicago.

I know, I am whining and impatient... it was so fast last time. :( <pout>

Ooh, so sorry Sarah, when I saw that you posted, I was looking so forward to seeing your pics!
However, I myself am currently going through a severe case of 'Hagi Withdrawal' and alas will have to wait way longer than you to be over it!
:( <pout>

Seriously, can't wait to see what everyone has received this time. :wink:

Picked up my Hagi this morning from the post office. Will check it out tonight when I get home.

Nice set...very nice. The yuzamashi is a lot bigger than I thought it would be. It's about twice the size of the houhin. That's okay because now it can do double duty with my other Hagiyaki when I make sencha.

Plus as I learned with my other Hagi yuzamashi, you don't want to fill it all the way, it gets too hot. I plan on using my other one with this set.

OK now it shows they attempted to deliver while I was at work this afternoon. I had no "Sorry we missed you" note on my door or in my mailbox which is frustrating... because now I don't know if they are holding it at the post office or if they will try to deliver it again tomorrow. Of course, I will be working all day tomorrow so I will miss them again. I wonder if I leave an alternative delivery address taped to my door... maybe they would bring it to me to work? :D

LOL! apparently mine was delivered to the suite next door since I wasn't in. Except nobody left a pick-up tag so that I would know it was there. So here I am home again jiggity jig, and no package until tomorrow when they open for business again. :lol:

Not to beat you to it Geek, I'm sure you will post a beautiful glamor shot to make these little sweeties look their best! But they are so sweet I couldn't resist! I am very glad they matched exactly with two cups I already had. Perfect!

Nice gyokuro pieces! What's not to like, they look awesome. Thanks for sharing them with us.

I think the lack of response is due to the new forum issues, I noticed less posting overall. Plus there seemed to be problems posting pics and still might be in some forums I have heard.

I gave mine up for others since the demand was so high and am now waiting for the reorder to come in. Hopefully within another week!

At last, I got them! Pics to follow if I can find my camera. Wishing now I had some really primo gyokuro to christen them with, but the cheap stuff I got in Epcot will have to suffice. :mrgreen:
