I’m on one of those trips where I am buying and trying like mad… I’m sure you know them: for a month or 6 you buy the occasional tea and enjoy what is already in your cupboard, but then you go on a buy & try spree getting tons of new stuff you haven’t tried yet.
I’ve hit one of those times right now. I’ve joined a month-to-month tea club that sends one sample a month, bought 3 different size bags from a couple tea stores (two in-person, one on-line) and gotten samples along with some of those.
And am still thinking of buying another sampler pack or three. I drink tea continuously throughout the day (and have to pee a lot lol) so I go through small samples fast.
Voracious tea trying haha!
Hi R.P.! I think we’ve all been through phases like that at one point or another :)
What companies’ samples are you enjoying the most so far? Lately I’ve been very fond of the stuff I recently ordered from Samovar, but I’ve also enjoyed tea samples from Den’s, thepuritea and American Tea Room.
Hi, samples are sort of my thing and with my relaunch I am offering 20% off everything until the 18th with code… KickOff20 Check out my site www.iHeartTeas.com If not interested please ignore this message. Thx! :-)
So far my favorites had been the two Utopia Tea samples I received (Irish Breakfast and especially the Strawberry Ginger Peppercorn -it snuck up on me).
RachanaC, I’ve been eyeing your stuff and am tempted. You can probably expect an order your way soon lol!
Ha! I did that for a while too, we got a big tax refund and it turned into BUY ALL THE TEA EVER. >.> Now I have 190 teas in my cupboard. We’re heading down to the States soon, and I almost put together an order for Adagio because the shipping to the Canada is ridiculous. I decided instead to order new teaware through amazon instead, because the only tea I’m really searching for is a good vanilla black. So I offer you hope! Eventually you will get to a place where you don’t feel the need to buy all the teas out there…but then teaware comes along XD.
At least, that’s how it happened for me.
Lol, I just spent a while last night getting all the free samples I could find online and then spending a bunch on other samples from various sites and joining 6 weeks of a tea-of-the-week program.
Plus a new teapot (I haven’t had one since my old one croaked, have been using a steeping cup) and one matching cup.
Then I told myself that is enough lol!
