I seriously have a problem, I am addicted to buying tea! Lol
Mango Watermelon Honeybush
Blueberry Cream Cheese Danish Black Tea
Cotton Candy White Tea
And the 12 sampler from their fundraiser!
Earl Grey Iced Tea
lalala nothing to see here…
I had a $10 voucher and there was a sale and I just couldn’t fight mine any longer (I think I lasted about a day)
If they hadn’t sold out of some of the blends I wanted, I would have placed one as well. I am saving up for the $10 voucher right now so I can “let loose” when that is ready!
Thank you, Sil! :) We’ve been having fun blending and packing parties basically all week long to fulfill all of the orders we’ve been receiving.
Uniquity- We will have some fun new teas coming in (and restocking) just around the corner.. should arrive by the end of September. Should be a great time to let loose!
Short Sorceress- thank you! We have so many amazing supporters spreading the word about us every day- it’s a small way to try and say thank you for that support. We know we wouldn’t be able to do anything without the fine folks who share our tea with friends every day.
I haven’t been able to log into my rewards the past few days. I assumed it was a site error, but now it seems like it’s just me having the problem. I type in my email and my password, hit the button and then nothing happens. Doesn’t give me an error message or anything, just nothing happens at all.
Thank you for the update, Chizakura. I’m passing this along to Geoffrey now to see if we can’t figure out what’s happening!
Lily, at times when you get tons of orders — do you regret starting the whole hand-written note thing? Is there a poor tea intern relegated to making them? :)
@High Adventure – Not at all!! Making sure we thank our customers for your trust and support is one of the most important things we get to do here – we know that none of this would be possible otherwise.
And there are no tea interns here at Verdant. We all take turns writing thank you notes, though Kelsey usually writes the most. Kelsey is the fantastic person who makes sure everyone’s orders are packed correctly and out the door on time, along with taking care of everyone with customer service – she’s basically magic, and we’re so lucky to have her working with us!
When tons of orders come in, the whole crew pitches in to make sure everything can get done on time: I’ll stamp bags all day, David will be putting together boxes and making samples, and Kelsey will be orchestrating at the center of it all – there are some late nights, but it’s a great excuse for tea parties and chocolate cake afterwards. :) And there’s nothing quite as satisfying as seeing the mail lady take them all away to head out to your homes.
Hey Chizakura – can you e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org about your log in troubles? We’ll probably need a few technical details from you to figure out what might be happening, and it’ll be easier to chat over e-mail. Thank you!
Lily, I love the notes (I save them) and it sounds like you guys have an absolute blast! That could turn into an online reality show… ‘Behind the Scenes at Verdant Tea.’
Sil, sorry your thread got hijacked!
Red Leaf Tea
Caramel MATCHAccino special blend
Size: Large x2 = $9.00 (WHOA super discount of crazyness)
Size : Small
Flavor: Distinctive $19.98
The shipping sucks at $10 (the large matchaccino is 2lbs!) but I managed to split it with the roommate.
I ordered some MATCHAccino too, such a crazy discount. I think this might be a good solution to not being able to make it to the coffee shop once it starts snowing.
Placed my first Whispering Pines Tea order.
Honey Graham Cracker
Dark Chocolate Oolong
will be looking forward to seeing your reviews. Haven’t had much chances to try them yet
I’m binging right now. I’ve placed two more orders since this one -Della Terra and Design a Tea plus my NMTC order that STILL hasn’t shipped. (Hanging head in shame)
I’m choosing not to worry about it, I’ve cleared a couple of shelves in a closet. Looking for appropriate baskets/bins to put the unopened packages in. I will be fine as long as they are no longer exploding all over the house. (and I have birthday money to spend…might place another order or two yet….)
haha i have 200+ teas in the house but it’s all in one small ikea expedit bookcase. I love it. There are a few more orders i want to place but i’m trying to balance when i’m buying the tea so that when it’s been in my cupboard “forever” i have less to drink from that same time bracket…if that makes sense. heh
gah, where has the time gone? I need to start decreasing my stash to prep for Black Friday.
Not tea, but I just ordered a bunch of tins for my Dammann Freres teas from Instant-Thé (they come in non-resealable bags, and on one the seam had burst open!) from Specialty Bottle. I had to stop putting it off!
Which tins did you order? I keep wanting to put an order in, but their shipping is expensive.
I ordered eight of the TND8 (Tin Deep Container 8oz w/ Cover). They will be just right for 50g of tea (I checked their volume against some tins I have now, lol). I have ordered the TEAT4 (Tin Tea Smooth Square 4.3" w/ Slip Lid; these are perfect for 100g of tea) from them in the past, and love those tins.
My shipping was $10.30 for 8 tins (@$0.97 each). Sometimes you can see where the threshold is for shipping by adding and removing numbers of tins from your cart; one extra tin can double the shipping price because it will bump the total size/weight over the lower threshold.
That’s good to know. One day I’ll order from them…. Maybe as a Christmas present to myself. Lol.
I placed a small order from Tealux today for a bamboo matcha whisk, 4 small screw-lock tins, cocoa spice puerh, maple chai puerh, and chocolate monkey rooibos.
I probably shouldn’t have, but I haven’t bought anything fun for a while. :) #excuses
I also just spent $12 (with shipping) to get all the oolong samples from Tealux. I’ll get to try 9 different oolongs. Hopefully that’ll give me a good mix of green/roasty/earthy etc so that I get a better feel for oolongs.
4 Featured Min-Yue Oolong Teas Assortment Samples
Quantity : (7g * 2) * 4 [Zip Bag] 1 $5.90
Oolong Month Gift Pack – Featured Taiwan Oolong Tea Sample Assortment (5 sachets) 1 $2.90
Golden Monkey Black Tea – 7g
I’m not really sure this counts as an order, but I just got the three free samples from Yezi Tea. Just had to pay for shipping ($2.95) so it comes out to less than a buck a sample. Not to shabby. Lol.
I’m trying their Yi Fu Chun Black Tea, Zheng Shan Xiao Zhong “I can’t believe it’s not scotch” Black Tea, & Jin Jun Mei Black Tea. So we’ll see how that goes.
Also got some of the Twinnings free samples sent to me.
Now I just have to resist placing an Adagio order since they got a few blends I wanted to try back in stock…And I want to try a few more samples…But I still haven’t opened the ones I already have… /bites lip/ Does it count as breaking a Hiatus if you use points to pay for most (possibly all) of a purchase? Lol!
I just got Darlenes Pumpkin Spice, never had this places tea, anyone have any idea of how it is? Got 4oz shipped from ebay for 7.65.
Tried looking for reviews here, didn’t find any.
cavocorax, a screw-lock tin? Does that mean you’ll need a screw driver to open it? That’s hardcore! LOL
I’m actually in the market for a few tins myself, because I’ll be placing my Butiki order in the near future, and will need tins to store the five million pounds of tea I intend on ordering.
Ok, so I caved. These orders are my first from dellaterra and verdant!
Try me sampler pack:
(Tea Choice: spiced caramel apple, fireside spice, orange and cream, orange brulee, minty cow (black tea))
From verdant: vanilla citrus spice, and orchard spice.
I can’t wait!
Haha. I just mean it screws on, instead of pops on. And they’re for matcha which us perfect. I love how 4 1.99 tins turned into a $35 order.
And I like your choices! Hope they don’t disappoint. (How is it that I only have 1 Della Terra Tea now? Gonna have to wait for November now)
I got almost the same Verdant order earlier this week, but with a sample of imperial breakfast summer blend added, so excited for them to arrive!! And your DT order looks delish, I have been tossing up the idea of a sample pack with fall teas, and Minty Cow (which apparently was formerly Shamrocks & Shenanigans) was my favorite chocolate tea, so I might need to get some of that too! :)
Just put in my very first Della Terra order! I ended up deciding on six teas… The Friday the 13th sale was just too good of an opportunity to pass up.
Teas I picked were:
Cherry Cola & Cake
The Perfect Pear
