My first Mandala order in a couple of months:
4oz-“Dian Hong” Black Tea of Fengqing
2oz-GABA Oolong-super curious about this one
Oh, that’s a nice manageable order! :)
(Looking around the room)
This is a dangerous place for me, kind of like an alcoholic going into a bar to order a glass of milk… ;)
I’m really curious about their Milky Oolong as that’s the top rated tea on Steepster.
I’m not a big fan of milky oolongs, but even I enjoyed it. It really is a nice one!
Guess I’ll add it to my list. I really like the rating tool, some day when I am rich enough I am going to order all of the top 100 teas and just taste them one after another.
I don’t like Milky Oolong either, but I haven’t had one in years so maybe things have changed!
I am not a fan of green oblongs in general but Mandala’s Milk Oolong and also Alishan are pretty excellent.
It was way too easy to put together my Butiki order for winning the art contest. In fact I went over and am going to end up paying for some of it, too :)
1991 Da Ye Aged Oolong
Root Beer Float Honeybush
Anji Bai Cha
Da yu ling oolong
Foxy Roxy’s Banana Walnut Treat
Rhubarb Vanilla Ale
Irish Cream Cheesecake
I can’t wait to try the ones I’ve not had yet. On this list I’ve only tried Anji Bai Cha, Ruby Pie, and Banana Walnut treat!
I got my Butiki order today and I am so excited!!!
(Jumping up & down and squealing like a baby pig)
…lol…got my clear teapot for flowering teas and can NOT
wait to try it out!!!
Creamy Egg Nog Tea, Coconut Cream Pie, Jasmine & samples too!
Can’t wait till I can go home tonight and try something.
Made my first Butiki order tonight! Decided to get:
Cantaloupe & Cream
Flowery Pineapple Oolong
Traditional Plum Pudding
Vanilla Frosted Carrot Cake
Good Morning Sunshine
Maple Pecan Oolong
And as my samples Grape Oolong and Almond Indulgence :)
No cotton candy tea here, or watermelon???
Hong Yu / Red Jade Organic 50g
Tung Ting Fire Roasted Oolong 50g
Kagoshima Japanese Black Tea 50g
Fujian Beauty 50g
Souchong Serendipity 50g
Sapphire Oolong 50g
So I really should be watching my money and cutting back on spending but I noticed there was only one more package of Strawberry Pie Honeybush left on the 52 teas site and I could not resist. Plus, I figured once I was ordering I should throw in some Marshmallow Treat Genmaicha. At least it was under $20 and I only bought the teas I know I really enjoy.
I placed a small order with The London Tea Company as they have an up to 70% off gifts sale. The order only came to £8.62 but should have been £17.65. Huge saving!
1 x Pyramid Prism White = 2.39 which contains:
3x Rooibos, Nutmeg & Vanilla
3x Red Berries
3x Vanilla Chai
3x Decaffeinated Breakfast Tea
1 x The British Range = 3.48 which contains:
Lady Earl Grey contains: Black tea with orange & Bergamot.
Irish Breakfast Tea contains: Black tea.
Scottish Blend Tea contains: Black tea.
Sub-total (including VAT): 5.87
Standard Delivery (UK): 2.75
Grand Total: 8.62
Put in my very first order from 52 Teas. Got some I already liked.
So far my Black Friday Orders include:
Teavivre – a few samples
Yezi Tea – Restock of a few teas i love
Mandala tea – teas off my wish list, cleaning solution and MY FIRST CAKE! woot woot! I’m super duper excited about that!
I’m 2 out of 3 for that list and trying really hard not to make it 3 for 3.
(I really like the Mandala cleaning stuff…good choice)
What cake are you going for? Yay!
I’m getting some Teavivre samples too I think….
Dex – uh i’m also going to be placing 1-2 butiki orders? and a couple of della terra teas coming my way…
Steph – “Wild Monk” Raw Pu’er 100 gram – 2012 i missed the other cake i really wanted from garret a while back so i’m doing it!
Sil, from Mandala are you talking about the smart soak tea stain remover – do you know how well it works?
i am Lala – i haven’t used it but others have and tell me it’s great….and i know garret will stand by his product if i’m REALLY unhappy. I figure it’s worth 6$ to just test it out… i have a large number of tea stained things that i can’t get really clean :)
Lala – I have the smart soak – AMAZING on stainless steel infusers and travel mugs. FANTASTIC on my white kitchen counters. Pretty good, but it leaves a bit of a film that’s hard to get off my plastic gravity steeper. Hope that helps…
edit: word of caution, it really foams. Be careful not to burn yourself with hot water foaming and overflowing things like travel mugs -
I’d never heard of it, but am intrigued. I just scrubbed my counter with baking soda. Idek how it gets everywhere…
That cake sounds awesome! Enjoy!
dex..you say that like you know me…LOL
Cavo..it will be here…waiting for you to taste…the tea not the cleaning stuff haha
Woot, grats on your first cake! Ha, that was my first cake too and it is really amazing one!
Well I started Black Friday early and ended up picking up 4 blends from 52 teas:
-Banana Pudding Black Tea
-French Toast Black Tea
-Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecake Honeybush
Hope they are good!
Add to that my first ever Butiki order consisting of:
-Cantaloupe and Cream
-Pistachio Ice Cream
-Caramel Vanilla Assam
-Irish Cream Cheesecake
-Vanilla Frosted Carrot Cake
-Coconut Cream Pie Rooibos
and for my $20 worth of tea I asked for Root Beer Float, Almond Indulgence, Pumpkin Creme Brulee, and Pineapple Oolong
Then I placed my first order from Herbal Infusions in which I got some samples and 50 g of the Cacao Tea.
Finally I placed my first Della Terra order. I got 3 Try Me Samplers (and a 4th free!! YAY!!), and larger amounts of Carrot Cake, Eight Candles, Lime Chiffon, Oatmeal Raisin Cookie, and S’mores.
I got a lot of teas I never tried before so hopefully I am happy with what I got.
ETA: Just made my first non-tea Black Friday purchase! Bought a pair of Roots sweatpants to give to my roommate as a Christmas present!
Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecake is really good, one of my favs from them! I’m tempted to order an extra, but I’m sticking to my Black friday plan.
