I love Mandala Tea, and have been waiting for the Special Dark Pu’erh to become available on their web site. I commented on that fact on one of my Mandala Tea tasting notes. Garret from Mandala said that they don’t have very much of it – therefore it not being listed on the website, but if I wanted some to just email him. I LOVE THIS COMPANY’s customer service. So of course I had to take him up on that generous offer, and since I was ordering I also got:

100g Mandala Phatty Cake 2011
100g Mandala Silver Buds Raw 2012 cake
Noble Mark Ripe Pu’er Blend 2011 2oz
Mandala Silver Buds Raw 2011 1 oz
Big Red Robe Fancy Grade Dark Roast Oolong 1 oz
Colored Species Oolong 1 oz

I’m so excited!!!!!

I just placed my first order from Aliexpress.com for some glass teaware and a tea pet. I literally spent 3 straight hours on that website while we watched movies. So much tea stuff! The store I bought from had free shipping and really good prices. And my little piggy tea pet is pretty darn cute! http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Tea-pet-yixing-tea-decoration-set-artificial-animal-clay-sculpture/708336474.html

Although this little guy is my absolute favorite.

Just a little too much money. Maybe some day. Or my birthday :-)

Sil select said

Neat! Never heard of them so thanks for sharing (or not lol)

What an adorable tea pet <3

That pig is so cute!

yyz said

very cute. I’ve done a couple orders through Aliexpress and haven’t had a problem. They withhold the payment from the seller until you confirm that you receive your order and that your happy with it. There is a complaints mediation system of you or the seller has a problem and if you don’t receive the item after 60 days you are automatically refunded. Enjoy the tea pet it’s quite cute.

They have SO MANY of them! I might just order a pixiu from them one day.

Since I had a slightly rough evening and broke the saucer of my gaiwan, I decided to bite the bullet and order a bunch of tea..a BUNCH. Eek. Hopefully I like them a lot haha, although I already have a few people in mind to split with, and one who is anxious to try them haha!

Andrews & Dunham Damn Fine Tea
Adventure Pack (contains Mount Gray, Double Knit Blend, and Tiger Assam)

4.4 oz x 3 = 13.2 oz of tea

(now I go hide)

BUT FREE SHIPPING TO CANADA! Huzzah!

Uniquity said

Great, now I want that. I have never had A&D but I love their tins and marketing. I just don’t tend to be super interested in the blends. Must resist

Sil select said

uniquity – tiger assam….you know you want it. it has a tiger on the tin! and it’s delicious! just ask terri and cavo! (and soon misslena)

Uniquity said

I actually don’t really like assams. Or earl greys. This makes it easier to resist but this little voice seems to suggest that maybe that is different now, hah!

Sil select said

what you do is swap with one of us to TRY them…which means you can totally wait until the next sale…since there will be one.

MissLena said

Haha yeah I haven’t had too many assams or Earl greys myself, but I couldn’t resist the free shipping, and I have been craving strong teas lately it seems, and yes, I saw the little tiger in the pictures and was like YES. I WANT IT.

I can’t wait to try them :D I will try to not be a tea enabler here..but it is a pretty awesome deal.

Another order. /hangs head/ I was doing so well with no orders for a few months and now here’s two orders in under a week, with likely 2 more in the near future from other companies. Lol.

Anyway, I took advantage of the Tazo sale to try some new stuff. Though I’m kicking myself ‘cause I waited too long (thinking too much) about the order and the infuser basket went out of stock. /sigh/ Hopefully I’ll find one for that cheap again.

Phoenix Mountain 2oz
Jasmine Yin Hao 2oz
Organic Vanilla Apricot Crème 1.4oz
Black Dragon Pearls 4oz
Peach Cobbler 4oz

Sub Total: $84.60
Order Discount: -$42.32
Coupon discount: -$4.23 (Tazo10)
Tax: $0.70
Shipping Costs: $4.95
Payment Total: $43.70

I may have gone a bit overboard in hindsight. But I like the dragon pearls I have from another company and as far as I can tell, this is a crazy deal on them. I just hope they don’t suck. Lol. And I love peach so I have high hopes for the cobbler.

Sil select said

not sure what type of infuser basket it is but upton often has their finums on sale for the cheapest prices we’ve seen around…

I’ll definitely have to check that out then. If I remember correctly it was a steel infuser like the ones that come in the DavidsTea perfect mugs.

Edit – The one at Upton isn’t the same one that Tazo had. That one was all metal. But thanks for the suggestion Sil. ^^

Dinosara said

Haha you are the queen of rationalizing. Congrats on your birthday order! :)

Sil select said

Dinosara – i don’t know WHAT you mean :) and hey..i’m almost at 215! from 227! at the start of today…

Cavocorax said

I think we’re learning to rationalize from you as well! Glad you ordered your birthday order!

Also I’m jealous of those sipdowns! I haven’t been home long enough today!

Sil select said

Cavo – i have to pee every two minutes lol but i’m having fun wit things at least :) I’ll be away from tea and up all night (6pm-6am) so that’s how i’m justifying loading myself up with delicious tea!

Dinosara said

Haha your progress is certainly impressive. At least a lot of your stash seems to be 1-2 cup samples!

Sil select said

well they’re 2-4 cup samples for a lot of them..but that’s really 1-2 cup samples in my world. i have big mugs lol
