My last two Verdant orders:
Eight Treasures Yabao, 7g
Imperial Breakfast Summer Blend, 1oz.
got Yunnan White Jasmine as a free sample!
$10 off coupon, total: $4.50
Laoshan Village Chai, 1oz.
$5 off coupon, total: $6.00
Their rewards program works really nice for the small orders I like to make.
Some French teas for my annual stock replenishment.
From Mariage Frères (all new to me except Pleine Lune, hence the small quantities):
Pleine Lune 500g
Wedding Impérial 100g
Thé des Impressionnistes 100g
From Dammann Frères (I can’t be the only one to read that as ’Damn Frères, surely? All new to me except Coquelicot Gourmand):
Coquelicot Gourmand 300g
Nosy Bey 100g
Mélange des Chérubins 100g
Oolong Châtaigne 200g
I can’t believe neither offers at least a small sample of some cheap tea with every order.

My Butiki order arrived.

Pumpkin Creme Brulee
Caramel Vanilla Assam
And my samples and tea from Nina’s Paris
Such a wealth. I’m almost intimidated, and not sure where to begin.
Placed an order with Design-A-Tea because I wanted to enjoy their Iced Wine tea (soooo good!) while it’s still summer. Of course I added a few other teas, too. :)
Iced Wine – 32g $3.95
Renaissance – 32g $3.95
Pear Spice – 32g $3.95
The pear spice is my own design. The iced wine and renaissance are store blends.
I ordered Tea Shisha for the Hookah, does that count?
Interesting. How does it taste? A number of my friends have hookahs, so it might be nice to use something tea related. Is it tobacco-free?
Yep, it is tobacco free, it is all made of tea leafe instead of tobacco, I have tasted it yet but I have it on order and just waiting for it to arrive, Hopefully it will be here today :)
Ok, I tried it and it is pretty good, very tasty, tobacco free, makes lots of smoke, I like it :)
I’m going to get some more soon of other flavors, I think it is nicotine free but I’m not sure if tea has any nicotine or not honestly.
More spending gulp but only one tea this time. I received an e-mail from Canton Tea about their Japanese range and fell in love with the sound of Sakura Blossom tea. Problem is that 10g from Canton is £4.75 (not including the £2 something postage), a price I just will not pay.
So I browsed eBay and found a Japanese seller with the exact same thing. The price? £10.43 for 100g including shipping! Much better. Plus it was the last one left :) It looks so beautiful.
Order placed with New Mexico Tea Co.
Black Jasmine Cream
Gosh that Bohemian Raspberry is sucha cool tea name, mostly snagged that one for the name.
