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.

Iridium said

Oh no! Wouldn’t want them to get garbaged! I’ll take them, if no one else has spoken for them yet.

I’d like to try some of the orange.

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.

I’d be interested in some of it, if you’re willing to send a sample to Canada.

Lala said

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”.

Lala said

Cavo- I am in Canada. I can send you the whole package if you like.

Cavocorax said
That’d be great. If I don’t like it, I have a friend who loves EG I can share it with.

Have a bunch of vanilla Comoro (in sachets) that are up for grabs.

I might be interested, always looking for a nice vanilla tea. What company is it?

LooseyLeaf said

im interested too :)

keychange said

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.

LooseyLeaf said

cool! I’m excited!

Lynxiebrat said

I would be interested in a package if you got any left over. Though I got my own Vanilla Comoro, so no worries if your out of that.

Awesome. Sounds exciting.

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?)

I’ll take the peach matcha. Something new to try. Lol.

And I would be interested in taking the Orange off your hands.

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! :)

Spencer said

I would be interested in 52teas Butterbeer and Pineapple Bacon Rooibos, as well as the Berkshire Apple and Fig.

ToiToi select said

I would love to try butiki and twg, verdant teas!

I’d be interested in trying any of these blends:

52Teas – Pineapple Bacon Rooibos
Butiki – Peach HoppiTea
Zen Tea – Hojicha

SFTGFOP said

Ohh! I’d love to try the glenburn first flush Darjeeling, and the bai hao yin zhen!

CrowKettle said

Spencer and ToiToi, I’m following both of you so just PM me with your details. :)

Cavocorax said

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?

yyz said

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.

CrowKettle said

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.

CrowKettle said

yyz, I’d to love send some sample amounts of those your way. I just need to run the details by ToiToi first.

moraiwe said

I’d be thrilled to take the Monkey Chops off your hands.

CrowKettle said

That sounds great, moraiwe! PM me:)

Meghann M said

I would love to try the gingerbread if it’s still available.

CrowKettle said

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. :)

LooseyLeaf said

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’m totally fine with splitting the Hojicha – for the record :)

CrowKettle said

Thanks Roswell!

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!

CrowKettle said

Just PM me your address, Reki275, and I’ll mail it out to you by Friday.

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!

ToiToi select said

I would like to try them!

VariaTEA said

Awesome, I am following you so follow me back to pm me an address and I will send them out asap.
