From Yunnan Sourcing: One cake of 2013 Ai Lao Mountain wild arbor sheng pu-erh. I have the 2011 and 2012 versions and want to see the vintage similarities and differences. I also ordered a sandalwood tea pick to break up the pu-erh cakes. You can read about the tea here: http://yunnansourcing.com/en/yunnan-sourcing-teas/2435-2013-yunnan-sourcing-ai-lao-mountain-wild-arbor-pu-erh-tea-cake.html
Despite receiving both my orders from Adagio and The Art of Tea, I decided that I wanted to order more samples. Shush! Don’t tell my husband, please.
Sour Apple (Herbal)
Pina Colada (Herbal)
With this order, I get a free sample of Green Rooibos Bonita tea.
Thought I was done ordering for the week, but apparently not.
Yunomi.us has a free shipping from Japan promo code that I figure I should jump on, as I’ve been planning an order for awhile. Also happy they have 50g gyokuro sizes, no way I’d finish 100g! I’ve had their standard gyokuro, which was best gyokuro I’ve had, but this time I went with one of their more pricey ones.
Creha Tea – Flavored Black Tea: Sweet Roasted Chestnuts (50g)
Higuchi – Black Oolong Tea Select (sample)
Kurihara Tea – Heritage Gyokuro Tea 2013 (50g)
$35 and change.

Nice order!! :) I’ve held off the sales, but sooo want to get that clay mug as well! Am trying to hold off until August or September.
I know, I shouldn’t have ordered that much tea, but the samples are so cheap with the sale.
I need to focus on teaware for the next couple of months. I really am not treating my teas well with what I have. Ultimately I would LOVE a Yixing Pot(something like this http://shopmandalatea.com/tea-wares/yixing-pots/three-wishes.html) and a clear glass gaiwan (http://shopmandalatea.com/tea-wares/gaiwans/glass-gaiwan.html).
I’m a little frightened to order teaware from the US. It might be cost prohibitive with shipping and duty, but I can’t seem to find what I’m looking for on a Canadian site. Oh well, stop spending on tea, save up.
Will let you know how the clay mug is….
Beautiful!!! Now I can’t wait for next Tealux sale…I really can’t do it now. Am so jealous!!! :)) Enjoy your teas and mug!

SOOO pumped for my next batch of SBT! I haven’t had them since last summer and have been craving them ever since haha!
Frank also got me. I’ve been waiting to get some SBTs for a while and this sale coupled with the fact that I wanted last week’s tea pushed me over the edge.
I got: Pink Lemonade, Watermelon, Pear, and Rainbow Sherbet, with a bag of Strawberry Daiquiri honeybrush to boot.
I was feeling down last night, so of course I ended up buying tea… Ordered some Harney & Sons — 4 oz of Paris, and samples of anything else that struck my fancy.
I found a link to Verdant on one of these threads, and oh my god that tea sounds positively swoonworthy! I got the 5 for $5, for now, and am anxiously awaiting the mail… =]
I ordered one of the glass test tube tea steepers from Verdant so I can finally having something better to steep all those lovely Verdant reserve teas!
I’ve been looking at those too. I too need better teaware. Nice that you picked one up. :))
Dragonwell leaves are so pretty, they need to be admired while steeping! I have been using just a glass tumbler and drinking from it as suggested.
