YAAAAAAAAY!!!!!!

Sil

you make this sound delicious!

Cavocorax

Omg. I’m so jealous…

OMGsrsly

It is so delicious!!!

Cavocorax

Oh man… I really wish I had some of that. :(

OMGsrsly

I wonder if it’s still available? So tempting to use some of my Christmas money instead of saving it.

OMGsrsly

WAIT. What am I thinking? I shouldn’t be buying tea…

OMGsrsly

Sil, I’m confused. This tea is this one, right?

Just a new lot? “Just”. I know.

Man, I could get 2 teas, hit their free shipping threshold, and be golden. And also off-hiatus. Hmm.

Sil

I still have some of this one…so worse case we can trade! Always happy to swap with friends

Cavocorax

Oh, I would love a trade – would you trade with me? I could send you soemthing nice.

OMGsrsly

I can tell this is an assam now that it’s been sitting (I’m almost done my 16 oz mug! This is unheard of!), and it’s still SO GOOD.

I think I will go off hiatus. But next week, because I just paid for a yoga class with the money on my card. :D

Sil

OMG…best way to shop from TTC is load up your cart with samples sizes… then you just have to get to 25$ for free shipping

Sil

oh and yes… they cycle through lots.

OMGsrsly

That’s like.. 4-5 samples! Not much at all. :) Any “type” recommendations, even if they’re a new lot?

Sil

sun moon lake assam; red jade black; yuchi wild mountain; and if you like stacy’s Mi xian, they have one that’s nice…

Sil

we haven’t tried the golden dragon kind yet..

also TB and Terri liked the oolongs quite a bit…to me though, they were oolongs. :) The one green tea of theirs i tried was pretty good too…if you like that sort of thing :)

Cavocorax

Oh man. :( You’re really tempting me to break my hiatus.
But. They’re not on sale right now right? So there’s no reason to do it now?

OMGsrsly

Their greens are sold out. I was gonna get the sun moon lakes, just because of the name! :D Yep, I have a cart prepared. :)

Sil

cavo. exactly. they will still be there (different lots) when you have money/return to buying tea

yyz

I still got the $25 free shipping when I had some larger items in your cart. So if you love this tea, you’re probably OK ordering a larger size as long as this is your first order and your order has some samples.

OMGsrsly

Good to know! Mmm, tea. I might wait as well. Then go all-out for my birthday.

Sil

they have a 50$ threshold and a 75 as well, depending on what’s in your cart. sooooo many tea wares that i want. sigh

Starfevre

I just bought some of the Sun Moon Lake as well as some teaware. Vintage Yixing!

Sil

jealous starfevre!

OMGsrsly

That’s awesome, Starfevre!

Cavocorax

Oooh. will you post teaware pics when it comes in?

Starfevre

I will try to remember to do that. Currently I am populating a cabinet.

Bio

Black teas are my favourite, although I do drink the occasional green tea. I am exploring herbal and fruity teas for summer icing and winter evenings, and oolong and pu erh are new and exciting… although I do not like a tea that tastes mostly of seaweed.

No: Spearmint or peppermint, licorice root, gluten (cookie bits, wheat, rye, barley, I’m OK with oats)

After sending my first box to the USA, bubble-envelope swaps are where it’s at.

When I rate, my ratings are based on the little faces, and depend on what face I make when I sip the tea! :)

Also: A map of tea places in Vancouver. I’ve been to some of them, but not a lot. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!
