I am almost out of this. :(
So I wonder why Rare Tea Republic does not have any first flush teas yet like the rest of the world. You’d think if they were owned by Republic of Tea they’d be on it. According to their blog they will have some Goomtee teas in by the end of the month.

Maybe I will get some more of this excellent white tea if and when the 2012 selection comes around.

I just got an email from RoT saying their first flush darjeelings have just arrived in limited quantities.

TeaBrat

Oooh. They’re not on the website yet! :)

“limited quantities” in RoT speak = these are gonna cost you, big time, hehe

I have some other things I wanted to order from RtR, but I have been waiting and waiting on their FF Darjeeling so I could just place one order. Hurry up, RtR!

As far as I know, they aren’t owned by Republic of Tea, actually…you can see in their blog they have been on a buying trip, so I’m sure it’s just a matter of time…

Shinobi_cha

Wow, cool… you learn something new everyday! I did think RTR’s name was awfully similar…. that explains it!

Profile

Bio

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
