Wasn’t going to buy anything, but I was influenced by the cute teapot boychik posted above from Harney’s. I mean, it was on sale! How could I pass that up?!! I really need to stop reading this thread!
I also ordered a bunch of oolong samples, because I’m on an oolong kick recently, and also a black tea that sounded yummy:
Formosa Oolong – loose tea sample
Li Shan – loose tea sample
Spring Floral -Ti Quan Yin loose tea sample
Ali San – loose tea sample
SoHo Blend – loose tea sample
15% off and free shipping! Yay!
I keep thinking that I had to get that tea pot set. so cute and price was awesome. i hope you’ll like it. Please let me know
Hey boychik! The teapot set is adorable! Got it yesterday. It’s a little smaller than I thought, but the little built-in infuser at the outlet of the spout was a nice surprise. I really like it. I think I’ll save it for oolongs. :)
Beginning of the month + payday + self-promised reward = eight new teas on the way!

Lapsang Souchong (…don’t remember the full name) (free sample WOO)

Assam TGFOP Black Tea
Bai Mu Dan White Tea (sample)

I went to my local tea store yesterday and got 1 oz of Creamy Earl Grey ($2.99). (I would have loved to bought others.) Funny how the immediate possession of one tea is not the same as ordering 4 or 5 and then waiting a week or so.

Castleton Moonlight FF -13
Singbulli SFTGFOP1 Clonal Flowery FF -13

It’s June! If I follow my hiatus rules, this is the only one I’m allowed this month since I did my June Verdant order in advance in May (was scared of the teaware I wanted selling out before the end of May)
So this is my June Butiki order:
1oz Gui Fei oolong (first time trying, very excited :D )
1oz Citrus Dream (my fave tisane)
4oz Premium Taiwanese Assam (my fave tea!)
2oz Premium Taiwanese Assam Upgrade (breakfast hasn’t been the same without it!)
1.5oz of Mi Xian Black (the sale’s still going, need moar)
1oz Foxy Roxy Banana Walnut Treat (it’s addicting!)
1oz Ruby Pie (actually for a girl at work. I let her try a bit of mine from my last order and she loved it! :D)
YAY! I’m waiting for a few new teas to appear on the website before I place my June Butiki order! I’ve never had the Citrus dream but it is on my shopping list for this time, same with the Mi Xian Black :)
Yeah, I was doing that at first too, but then I figured I’d just stock up on the faves, and snag the new ones in July. :) (hopefully Taiwanese Mountain Black will be there in July too… Ohhh long for)
Citrus Dream is quite nice. I’m not generally a fan of tisanes hot (I use them for iced tea) but I actually find myself making a cup of it almost every night, which is something that’d NEVER happen with herbals, hehe.
Mi Xian Black is to die for. If I could afford it, I’d drink it all day. I only allow myself to make it once or twice a week, and when I do I re-steep the heck out of the leaves until every ounce of flavor is gone, hehe.
Fiance ran out of Adagio’s Citrus Mate at work and that’s kind of his thing right now, so I had to restock him. And he plowed through 3 oz in no time at all so I figured on just getting him a pound.
But! They were also offering their graviTEA water purifier free with a $39 order. So I had to hit that. And then I figured I may as well keep going and hit the $49 for free shipping. Of course all that after 5% off.
So, what I ended up with was:
Citrus Mate 16 oz
Coconut Pouchong 1.5 oz
Thai Chai Sample
Jasmine Phoenix Pearls 3 oz
Free graviTEA water purifier w/ 60 day filter
White Grapefruit Sample
Raspberry Green Sample
White Tangerine Sample
For a grand total of $50.35
Not so bad.
Nah. It’s all he drinks there.
He already polished off the 3 oz I bought him in mid-April, so hopefully 16 oz lasts a bit longer. :p
Camellia Sinensis Tea House
Gaiwan xiong mao, 75mL
Camellia sinensis white ceramic cup, 120mL (4)
White ceramic cup, 125mL (2)
online order in 3 months. >:D
I’ve wanted these pieces for a while, and now I actually need a new gaiwan, so…
…and apparently I bought the last one. (‘x’) /relief!
Verdant order :)
Oh no I was bad…that’s what I get for surfing tea sites while recuperating at home!!
Yu Lu Yan Cha Black
Anxi Fo Shou Black
Laoshan Black Chocolate Genmaicha
Spring Harvest Laoshan Green
Laoshan Roasted Oolong
forgot to add the Laoshan green oolong to compare but oh well I like roasty oolongs better, plus I spent way more than I should have :) Now for the hard part waiting for it all to arrive!
Looks like a great order! :) Do you want the Laoshan Green Oolong as your sample? If so, just let me know!
Oh wow that would be fabulous then I can at least try it! :p.
Must say your service is amazing.
No problem- it’s my pleasure! We’ll make sure you can taste both oolongs and compare.
Another Mandala order. Broke my hiatus. Bad Grace.
4oz of Special Dark
4oz of Long Life
4oz of Bu Lang Gong Ting
Oh man! I really need to have a Gracie’s puerh session ASAP! Maybe I can do that Sunday. :) I’m glad you like the special dark enough to order a bunch of it :) sounds like it was a hit!
It’s my second 4oz of it. I’ll send some along when I get a chance. It tastes like hot cocoa.
Yay! I hope you like the ones I sent. Especially the Yong De Organic. I just finished my sample of that and hoarding the cake like a crazy person.
I am going to make a point to sit down on sunday and get to your samples. I feel guilty that i haven’t had much time to do it so sunday i will MAKE time.
