Wow that looks like an awesome order. :)) Such restraint to wait until a couple of days after your birthday.

I know! I was rather proud I lasted this long :) I’m pretty bad when it comes to Mandala self control.

ZOMG, I want that much tea. Actually, I probably have way more than that. What I mean is that I want that much NEW tea. Enjoy!!

Yay for birthday orders! Sounds like a good one grace :)

Birthday orders make aging worth it. I do, however, regret that I’m ordered out until I run out of something.

Tea goes better with birthday goodies too.

Oops. Well. It was only $11 something and four free samples.

I ordered this Sansa Stark blend: https://www.adagio.com/signature_blend/blend.html?blend=23892&SID=1068980c1594adc1675115941415e816
And then I had the red wedding sample, the konami sample, an apple black sample for some reason, and added green rooibos citron as my post this to Facebook tea.

Someone probly gifted you a free sample of the apple black. I have a peach oolong sitting in my cart for my soon to be new order. XD

momo said

it’s from adagio apparently, I only have two friends on there who would even maybe look at my page, so I searched my email and they added it to my cart on May 28. I don’t remember seeing this email AT ALL but I’ll take it!

Interesting. And free tea is always awesome. ^^

momo said

Oh yeah. I think if you don’t order from them after a certain amount of time they decide to gift you random samples. I got a peach one this way too. Of course, every time there’s one in my cart I then order, so they know what’s up.

Mandala: Morning Sun and Black Pearl (some samples! How nice)
Butiki: 1991 Da Ye Aged Oolong (mmmmm!) and Guayusa (
a sample of their Premium Taiwanese Assam that has such a great rating)
Verdant: Spring Harvest Laoshan Green and Yu Lu Yan Cha black

I’m dying I need the rest of the packages to come :x

Both of those Verdant’s are particularly delicious :)

Oh goodness i know! I had samples of them and had to buy more… Both are becoming regulars u_u

Oh geeze, I bought a yixing pot. I almost got a gaiwan too.

A headache at that, they had the yixing both on yunnansourcing’s us and china site, but the gaiwan on the china site. I number crunched to figure which would be cheaper with faster shipping without killing me or waiting 70 day shipping.

Ended up with http://www.yunnansourcing.us/store/product.php?id_product=119 $56 after shipping (USPS parcel).

and I’ll wait to buy the gaiwan I want on the other yunnansourcing site.

It’s cute!

Nice. I wish the china site’s shipping wasn’t so awful. There’s a few gaiwan there (specifically a travel set with lotus on it) I wanted to get, but the shipping I think was almost double what the actual items would cost. Even if I was just getting the travel set. /sigh/
But the one you got is definitely a cute little teapot. What’re you planning on brewing in it?

Either a sheng pu’er or oolong. Now I will have two yixing pots, I have more options, as I’m undecided what to do with my current pot!

Ugg at the china site.. I thought buying more would save shipping but the price goes up with each item! it was $27 to ship my teapot and gaiwan, or wait 70 days for $17 shipping. I’m not sure which one is more ugly of an option. I wish the US site would have more items for sale so we save time and shipping.

Yeah. Well, here’s to crossing our fingers that they do start getting more stuff on the us site. Like what they carry on their china site. Lol.

Very nice haul! The next time they have a sale, I think I’ll be ready for more!

Lilysmom said

I tried to resist, but just couldn’t….I do love their stuff……

Cavocorax said

I was surprised by how much I like it! I’m glad I got so many samples so I know what to go for next.

Additional paypal damage today: I snagged 52 Tea’s Strawberry Daiquiri Honeybush. I do like their honeybush blends. Hopefully no more tea buys for awhile.

Lariel select said

That one sounds awesome. I’m tempted myself.
