Take it Away!
I would enjoy a green tea mystery box! I especially love tropical and fruit green teas!
I have two flavoured matches from Red Leaf Tea to give away. Both green matcha, basic grade, robust flavour.
About 3/4 of the small package of peach.
About 1/2 of the small package of orange.
(I can update with more specific weights when I get home later today)In full disclosure I really do not like the peach, it is super chemical tasting, but not terrible if you can mix it with plain matcha. The orange is ok, some chemical taste but still drinkable, reminds me of chewable vitamin c. I just can’t drink them any more. I think both would have been better with a lighter flavour profile than robust.
If anyone wants to try these at their own risk just let me know. Otherwise I fear they are getting garbaged.
So I am at the point in my tea life where if I don’t like it, I am not going to force myself to drink it. I would rather throw it away (or give it away to someone more adventurous than myself).
So like the post immediately above, I have some flavoured matcha that is just not doing it for me.
From Red Leaf Tea, Earl Grey flavoured matcha, robust flavour, basic grade, small size package. There is about 2 tsp missing from the package.
In full disclosure, again I am finding it does have a very chemical/perfume/soapy taste. I think the matcha is good, it is just too much flavouring, I should have ordered delicate I am thinking. I have tried mixing it with some other matchas, which makes it a bit better but I know I am not going to drink it.
So first come first serve if you want to try it.
Knowing we have similar ideas about bergamot, I find this sounds scary. Kind of like a huge dog in the pound that is all teeth, snarling and lunging at the cage door as you walk by. You feel sorry for it, alone and unloved, but not enough to risk taking him home.
Ha ha KS. Well I am hoping someone out there will take pity on it and give it a good home. I would feel bad having to “put it down”.
Have a bunch of vanilla Comoro (in sachets) that are up for grabs.
great! The vanilla Comoro is made by Harney & sons. I can send each of you like three-four sachets. Actually, before I do that, I’m going to post about the rest of the tea I want to give away and see if I can’t put together a few packages to send to you guys instead. I really need to get rid of some of this stuff.
So I have a couple of Red Leaf Tea flavored matchas, that I got from Lala a little earlier in this thread… In the interest of full disclosure: I didn’t like them either. Once again, they are:
Peach Matcha (robust flavor), ~25 g including the bag
Orange Matcha (robust flavor), ~10 g including the bag
I am happy to pass them on to anyone in the US or Canada. (Or elsewhere if the shipping is cheap, I guess?)
The lack of storage for the amount of tea I have is starting to get to me so today I’m trying to clear some things out! I’m just not getting around to drinking a lot of these so here they are.
Everything has been claimed. Thanks, everyone! :)
I would be interested in 52teas Butterbeer and Pineapple Bacon Rooibos, as well as the Berkshire Apple and Fig.
I’d be interested in trying any of these blends:
52Teas – Pineapple Bacon Rooibos
Butiki – Peach HoppiTea
Zen Tea – Hojicha
Ohh! I’d love to try the glenburn first flush Darjeeling, and the bai hao yin zhen!
Spencer and ToiToi, I’m following both of you so just PM me with your details. :)
Could I try some of that Utopia Apple/Fig tea? Also, I’ll take the Divine Temptation. :)
Can I have some carrot cake??? Just a serving or 2 to compare to my oolong version?
I would be interested in the fujian white Jasmine, if toi toi is willing to share, Butiki’s Vanilla frosted carrot cake and some of the apple fig.
Rosswell Strange and SFTGFOP, I started following both of you so PM me the specifics!
That sounds fine, Stephanie :)
Lol, Cavo, I’ll definitely include those in your parcel.
yyz, I’d to love send some sample amounts of those your way. I just need to run the details by ToiToi first.
The gingerbread isn’t claimed yet. I’m following you now so you can send me a message. :)
Wow.. Looks like those went fast. Would have loved to get in on a few samples as I’m a complete newbie. Some of the names of them sound really different. Maybe next time. :)
ill take any of the unclaimed ones. doesn’t matter which one. both if no body claims one of them
Are you willing ship to Canada? If so, I’d like to try the Herbal Republic Ambrosia, and the monkey chops, and if Roswell is okay with it, some Hojicha?
I know I used ounces in my post, but I’m actually in Canada and have no problem shipping to fellow Canadians. I’m following you so you can PM me your details. :)
I’ve been playing with the idea of making a Zen order, but I’d love to try one of their teas first to get an idea of it. Thanks guys!
I have small amounts of Cocomint Cream, Banana Oolong, and Ice Cream Cake (all DAVIDsTEA) that I bought in a stash sale recently. I did not enjoy them at all and I am not sure if it was because they were just not for me or if perhaps they tasted off. I would be happy to send them to anyone interested.
EDIT: These teas have already been spoken for. Feel free to check the swap board for a list of teas I have available for swap. Thanks guys!
