Yes! So good! I added a touch of cream and that was pretty awesome too.

My birthday isn’t until July but I’m already trying to decide what company I want to splurge on with birthday money (my bf doesn’t like gift shopping so I might just buy my own present – bwahaha). Debating on a H&S order, Red Leaf matcha order, or renewing my Amoda boxes for 4-12 months. (Or a combo? IDK).

Now that I’m back to work and my income etc seems to be fairly regular, I’ll be tracking my expenses on a spreadsheet again, so I have a feeling my tea purchases will decline as I have a visible papertrail to shame me. :P

Deciding over those companies is tough! Have you been enjoying your Amoda boxes? I was fortunate enough to try a few of their selections at the Vic tea fest and it was too hit or miss for me to justify throwing money at you-never-know-what. If I were you I’d go with either H&S or Red Leaf.

PacifiCHA Faction ought to get together and split a selection of matcha too. That would help with all our expenses, I’m sure.

Yeah I might let the Amoda box lapse for a bit. It’s a nice novelty, but unreliable. I guess this last box will be the deciding one as it’s led me to try teas (like Lord Petersham) that I wouldn’t have found otherwise.

Splitting on a Matcha order might be a good idea, especially if we do the buy 5 +2 option or something like that. I just am hesitant to jump on more orders as I get so busy it’s hard to meet up with people and pick/hand-out the tea. This butiki order is my experiment to see how well it works!

I really liked the amoda box just to try new things when i wasn’t feeling adventurous AND when i was just trying to get a handle on the things i like/don’t like. Now i prefer not having it since i’m getting good at finding companies that do sample sizes so i try things that way :)

OMGsrsly

Sadly the Butiki order still hasn’t shipped. I’ll be sure to let you know when it does though! i’m getting so impatient for my teas. :) I’d love to do a matcha order, but not for a couple months at this point sadly.

Cavocorax

She said on Facebook that it should ship Thursday! I hope the shipping is fairly quick!

And I’ll probably be headi.g to Toronto before we get a matcha order together. :/. Not that you can’t do it without me!

Sil

cavo is all mine! MINE! She’s MINE! bwahahahahahahahahahaha

Cavocorax

(oh wait I said Lolz is that lame does that mean no one wants me now)

Fjellrev

I’m in noooo rush to get on a Red Leaf order. Srsly ladies, I have four (?) flavours to get through yet.

Butiki will soon be ours! It’s going to be like Christmas in Australia for us.

Bio

Tea: I just started drinking loose tea in the fall of 2012, and once I started I had to get more and more and try ALL THE TEAS. Joining Steepster made this worse/easier.

So far it seems that I prefer unflavoured black teas, although I still drink a few that are flavoured each day too. Oolongs, greens, puerhs and white teas are all very good, but I just don’t crave them as often.

Yet.

Me: Ok. Random things. I like animals, I have a baby girl and a devoted bf, and … I’m a geek. I like Lord of the Rings, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, pen&paper RPG’s, online RPG’s, video games, silly internet memes, puzzles and a bunch of others things! I taught myself to knit and I’m considering crochet but I need to make time for all these things!

Ratings:
1-50: Bleh.
51-64: It’s ok.
65-75: It’s good.
76-85: It’s very good. (Buy 1oz+)
86-100: Amazing. (ALWAYS re-stock)
