Like many other people in this thread I caved today and ordered from Verdant.
500g Master Han’s 2013 Sheng Pu’er
4oz Master Han’s Looseleaf 2004 Shu Pu’er
2oz Golden Fleece
1oz He Family 1st Picking Flat Pressed Laoshan Green Tea
2oz Laoshan Black
In my defense the green tea is a Christmas gift for someone, but the full brick of 2013 Pu’er was a moment of weakness… I just couldn’t say no to those savings! And the $25 of tea cash to spend by January only means I’m going to be back again to make an already too-large stash bigger…
Herbal Infusions suckered me in with their delicious sounding Santa’s Milk and Cookies Black Tea. I also threw in some Pumpkin Pie Rooibos and Marshmallow Snowflake Earl Grey to round out the trio.
I would say “oh no!” but you are going to be getting what I could only assume are some pretty tasty teas. Also, I may have ordered Cacao tea on Friday, in addition to a bunch of samples.
Yeah but I also have an order from them that I received about 10 days ago that’s still sitting here in the box….I have to stop…
Where are the pumpkin and marshmallow ones? I might not be on the right site lol, I can’t find them, but they sound delicious!!
Oh nevermind, found it in another thread, darn it must be sold out now! Looked intriguing!
Oh darn! But maybe good haha I don’t need more tea :D although I always would like more haha. Thanks for the info!
Dexter, I think we have an addiction.
MissLena, I can probably send you a sample when mine arrives if you like.
I don’t “think” I have an addiction – I’m starting at the first step….Hi my name is Dex – I’m addicted to buying tea…
And I added a Red Leaf Tea order. However I behaved and only ended up getting the two matchas on sale.
At last count, I’ve bought 84 teas this weekend – that’s not counting any free samples that will be in with them. I’m also pretty impressed that two of the orders have been released from Customs already – two of my orders haven’t even shipped yet (or I haven’t been notified that they’ve shipped). I’m going to be on hiatus for a year…
haha oh dear. I actually lost track. I placed an order with 52 teas, Herbal Infusions (twice), Harney & Sons, Red Leaf Tea, Della Terra, Butiki, and American Tea Room and I think that is it. I think I will be on that hiatus with you.
@variaTEA : ok ill let you know :) once my cupboard is down to a more manageable size haha :D
I just placed my first Butiki order!
Coconut Cream Pie Rooibos
The Killer’s Vanilla
Gui Fei Oolong
Irish Cream Cheesecake
Maple Pecan Oolong
Flowery Pineapple Oolong
I forgot to write in my free teas, but I just emailed Stacy! I asked for:
Caramel Vanilla Assam
Premium Taiwanese Assam
I’m so excited!!!
I had a long, full day job interview today and have a second full day of it tomorrow, so when I got home I definitely placed this order. Golden moon, 30% off, finally restocking my beloved coconut pouchong!
Coconut Pouchong – 2.2 ounce Tin
Sugar Caramel Oolong – 1oz Bag
Yay!!! I got my Butiki order in just under the wire!
Didn’t think it was gonna happen….been crazy busy
1 oz Caramel Vanilla Assam
1 oz Creamy Eggnog
1 oz Apricot Guayusa
0.5 oz Champagne & Rose Cream
0.5 oz Flowery Pineapple Oolong
Free Stash I am looking forward to:
1 oz Caramel Vanilla Assam
1oz Ruby Pie
0.5 oz Purple Sunset Oolong
Woot! Woot! ~ Only regret is, I wish I could have afforded 2 more oz Apricot Guayusa…lol…
Now, I am anxious as a cat on a not tin roof ;-)
Outside of a few, small tea purchases this sales weekend, I finally purchased a canister I’ve been eyeing on Aliexpress.
Taking advantage of Harney and Sons 25% off and free shipping still going on today.
Love, love, love spicy teas…. so going with
Decaf Hot Cinnamon Spice 4 oz. (so many good reviews, hard to resist)
-Can’t wait for this one to arrive!
Hubby likes milder teas and thought it might be good to find a tea that would be great iced that our son might like too so went with….
Blood Orange Herbal blend
-Hoping we like it since I went w/4 oz. Hard to beat the price difference between a sample and the 4oz tin! Not many reviews on it, but decent responses… We’ll see about this one.
Was tempted to grab Paris, but have several teas on their way… not sure how many Hubby can handle at once being this is a new hobby/adventure in tasting. Might cave and order it too before the day is over.. We’ll see.
IF anyone has any suggestions for things to try… feel free to chime in. We don’t have too much experience with teas yet. Hubby tends to like green or black with mild flavors. I don’t care much for green, but I like blacks, not sure yet about roobios (my fav bag tea has a blend of roobios and other teas, but tried a roobios chai from Tea & Spice Exchange and not crazy about it).. but I love almost anything so far with a spice to it, as I mentioned above :)
Without a good tea shop near us, and having just gained an interest in tea, we haven’t tried Oolongs, Pu-erhs, etc. Just getting started, so the ones with easy to identify names are the ones we have been starting with until we get a taste for what our likes are.
Dön’t feel rushed. There are many good teas out there.
My two favorite vendors are Verdant
Thanks CelebriTEA… & You’re right, I’m too eager to try new things. I need I take my time and do my research, & then enjoy as I sample and learn.
I did look seriously at Butiki, but couldn’t justify spending enough to qualify for their sales without having tries any of their teas before. They look like a favorite around here, so I’m sure I’ll get started with them sometime soon.
The Verdant site looks familiar, so I think I was looking at their sales… Not sure what pulled me in another direction. Too many choices I suppose :)
I’m kinda jealous you were able to get an order in. I haven’t been able to due to the site crashing.
Jeweled thumb… I didn’t have any problems with it crashing it just went really slow !!
Well…I had a really awful day yesterday and missed out on cyber monday for all companies that i was looking to order from. I had “free money” on my paypal account so i figured what the hell and just placed an order for the following:
PU-EHR GOURMAND LES 100 G
TEA FLEURILEGE 100G
ROOIBOS CARAMEL-TOFFEE 100G
I would have also ordered from Theodor, but their shipping to canada is like 30Euro…so forget that. I’ll just have to dream about celebration and the du loup…
A little tea buying makes everything a little brighter. I’m also quite sure that swaps could be arranged for some of the things you may have missed…..(Herbal Infusions 12 Christmas blends….)
heh yeah a few people took advantage so i’m sure between you and cavo and omg and a few others i’ll be covered. Not overly upset, just had a bad day! I think i’m fighting getting sick so that always makes me more easily frazzled heh.
:)) yep bad days get me in trouble too… Drink some tea and I hope you feel better.
sara – yeah except that with my luck i’ll get dinged with some random charge of a bajillion dollars when it gets here LOL. I just wish theodor had reasonable shipping or someone could tell me how to get some without paying 40euro for stupid shipping/taxes
….BUT Sil I thought you had that problem all worked out – you fly to Paris for the weekend….problem solved :))
yes but dex…i lead SUCH a busy life that there’s no possible way to get away until the new year…so i might as well just order them now giggling
I just have to say I really like that Adagio gives you points for free tea and that they are so easy to acquire. I just placed an order and got it for under $8.00 :D
Tree House Gift Pack
White Peach sample
Puerh Chorange sample
Puerh hazelberry sample
Cherry Almond Cookie
Today was a good day :]
