I saw Verdant had the Imperial Breakfast Summer Blend back, so an order was absolutely necessary! :) I also really have been wanting to try the Yu Lu Yan Cha Black Tea. I’ve been wavering because I don’t want to get myself hooked on another tea that I simply MUST have…and yet, I ordered a sample. I couldn’t resist.
Imperial Breakfast Summer Blend 1 oz.
Yu Lu Yan Cha Black 7 g.
Laoshan Black Chocolate Genmaicha 4 oz.
Bai Mu Dan White Tea 7g
Glass Test Tube Steeper
I have a serious problem and really need to stop ha ha. I just ordered from bluebird tea co. And verdant yesterday and today… I couldn’t help myself when I saw the 5 for $5 on persimmon tree.
I ended up oredering the 5 for $5 Roobios Sampler and chose:
-Berries ’n Cream
-Roobios Vanilla Chai
I also got a free 1oz tin of white guava
And… I added a few other samples…
-French Vanilla Bean
I swear this is my last order for a while!
Sooo Tea hiatus be damned since the tea spot is having a sale and i’m itching to get larger quantities of a few of the mandala teas i’ve tried before deciding on a cake purchase..not to mention the butiki order that is incoming next week.
From Mandala – small one but with a couple teas i don’t have in the house and wanted to try :)
250 gram Mandala Noble Mark Ripe – 2012
Loose and Luscious Lancang -2007
Special Dark – 2006 Loose Ripe Pu’er
Mandala Four Leaves Ripe Loose Leaf Pu’er
250 gram Mandala Year of the Dragon Ripe Pu’er -2012
Golden Needle Premium
i figure it’s a nice start to the joy from mandala that terri and grace have shared with me :) there are a few (ok a lot) of others i want to try but i don’t really have a good place in the house to store cakes….yet.
Got into trouble at Yunnan Sourcing.
I snagged the gaiwan I wanted VERY BADLY, but since their shipping is pricey, I added a few promising cakes with my order. Thankfully, they have 9% off.
Gaiwan http://yunnansourcing.com/en/gaiwans/1811-ceramic-aqua-gradient-celadon-easy-gaiwan-for-gong-fu-tea-brewing-150ml.html lookit this gaiwan! Lovely!
2012 Yunnan Sourcing “Dragon of Jing Mai” Ripe Pu-erh tea mini cake
2012 Yunnan Sourcing “Qiu Yun” Wild Arbor Raw Pu-erh tea of Yi Wu mountain
I got in trouble at Mandala yesterday. NOT ALLOWED to look at Yunnan Sourcing. :((
That gaiwan is beautiful.
I don’t even like puerh a whole lot yet but I want ALL THE CAKES. The logic is that puerh changes over time so even if I don’t like it now, I will like it eventually!
I’m getting sucked into pu’er cakes because the shelf life is different – I don’t have to worry about drinking it in a year (or less) and the tea gets better with age! Perfect excuse to buy more!
I couldn’t resist The Persimmon Tree:

This isn’t really an order per say, but today I got my free samples from the lovely Angel at Teavivre, and I am super impressed! 5 types of tea x 3 sample packs/tea = 15 samples! And I wasn’t even sure when it was going to arrive! Excellent end to the week!
I received samples of:
Fengqing Dragon Pearl Black Tea
Yun Nan Dian Hong Black Tea – Golden Tip
Jasmine Silver Needle White Tea (Mo Li Yin Zhen)
Jasmine Bi Luo Chun Green Tea
Premium Jasmine Dragon Pearls Green Tea
I’m super excited to try my first Teavivre teas!
Got a snazzy coupon for free 50g of Gojipop in their recent newsletter which is awesome as I was planning to order some! The first 2 are for my roommate, but I’ll probably sample them.

Jumpy Monkey 100g
Guava Cadabra 100g
Pink Passionfruit 100g
Goji Pop – free 50g
Ok, I caved early and broke my hiatus because I ran out of Lemon Chiffon. I lasted a whole three weeks this time, but I’m making progress! I kept the order really small and took advantage of the free shipping + 15% off.
Della Terra Order
Lemon Chiffon 2oz
Try Me Pack: Root Beer Float (for my toddler), Lime Chiffon, Lemon Lime Cream Tart, Spiced Summer Plum and Nut & Honey Crunch
Total $15.72 (free shipping!)
I’ve been on a bit of a tea hiatus recently, but it’s pay day next week & I’m already planning my purchases! I’ve started with the 5 for $5 offer with Verdant & I’m eyeing up a few teas with Bluebird Tea as well. I wanted to place an order with the Persimmon Tree too, but alas they don’t ship internationally :(
