Vente-Privee Sale

An Afternoon In Paris Black Tea
An Evening In France Black Tea
Chocolate Eclair Tea
Earl Grey Vintage Edition Tea
Raspberry Macaron Black Tea

I am sooooo tempted by the sale. I wish there were more reviews of these teas on here to convince me!

I was hesitating myself but my girls and all my friends love flavored teas. i never even offer pure teas if we have people over in my house. i can send samples your way when i get my order if you want.

Aww that’s sweet of you boychick! I’d be happy to do a swap sometime :)

Those sound so good. Did you like them? Also I cant find the website. Could you possibly link to it? Thank you :)

The only order for the month of February:

Verdant Tea
1 brick of Master Han’s 2013 sheng (my first brick/cake purchase!)$65
1 oz Silver Buds Yabao $9.95
Total: $74.95

Thank you for your order – I’m so excited for your very first brick! I am so excited for what the 2013 will be like in even just five more years, but I’m not sure I’ll have the self control resist drinking it all now XP Hope you enjoy it :)

Did you know? Master Han’s 2013 makes a ridiculously good iced tea – it sounds strange, but it was an amazing discovery late one night here at the tea house.

You’re welcome :)

That’s the thing… I’m hoping to age most of it but based on the reviews I’m not sure much will survive to 5 years… lol So far I’ve been having fun with Qianjiazhai Old Growth 2012 Sheng… it’s delicious.

Come summer, I’ll probably try the ice tea… thanks for the suggestion. :)

So I thought there was a ‘I bought this in a store’ discussion, but I can’t find it even after going back 10 pages (though I did find a few other topics I want to read. Lol). If anyone knows what the url for it is, I’d be greatful for it.

But anyway, I took a trip to a local(ish) DavidsTea and walked out with a whole bunch of stuff. I went in with a list of teas I wanted so I wouldn’t walk out with more than I could afford and I had a giftcard from Xmas, so even better.

I got about a 1/2 oz of these teas:
Salted Caramel
Himalayan Blend
Sheng Pu’erh
Three Wishes (not on my original list, but smelled delicious so I took a chance)
Wild Black Yunnan
Cranberry Pear
Big Apple
Choconut Oolong

I also picked up 4 colored tins and an infuser since the mesh one I use in my teapot has lately been leaking bits of tea into my cup. And since I bought 4oz of tea, I apparently was able to get a free cup of hot tea, which was awesome. They didn’t do that last time I bought tea, so maybe it was just that store? So I got a cup of Nepal Black and a cup of Buddha’s Blend for my Mom since she drove me. Lol.
I also picked up a Lovebird mug for Dinosara, though I resisted getting a mug for myself this time. I think I’ll wait until their spring stuff and see what it looks like.

Dinosara said

Woohoo thanks so much again!

Sil select said

boychik said

Assam Secret Garden (Black Tea)
Golden Yunnan (China Black Tea)
Happy Banana (Fruit Tea)
Sweet Helen (Pear Fruit Tea)

This is a late post. I was travelling down in the US last week. I was going to be around Bay Lake, Florida so I contacted Sophie and Laurent of Nina’s Paris USA (based out of Miami). I made an order of about $80 worth of tea. They shipped it to my hotel and kept in contact with me the whole time until I successfully received the tea. Super awesome customer service. And the best part, I only paid $4 for shipping! That’s ridiculous and awesome at the same time.

yyz said

Awesome! I hope you had fun.

Sil select said

Did you order through Amazon, or just via email? I’m pretty much looking to do the same thing in a few weeks :)

Lala said

I just sent an email saying what I wanted and where I was staying. Paid via paypal.

VariaTEA said

They are so amazing! I am glad you had as awesome an experience with their customer service as I did.

I was running low on paper filters so I grabbed 100 filters from DAVIDs. Once I was ordering, I tossed in:

50 g The Glow
50 g Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait
The Mason Jar
The Green Sweater Perfect Tea Mug

Yay for teaware!!

Cavocorax said

Ooooh, the mason jar! I’m debating it! It’s a lot of one tea at a time though. :O (And you probably won’t want to re-steep it afterwards because then you’re at 48 oz of one tea if you do! But it seems like it’d be great for ice tea!) -- See I’m still arguing back and forth…

MissLena said

Oh man…I just went to their site and saw the web special on the red sweater latte mug…soooo tempting, I’ve wanted it for AGES…must. Resist.

First order of 2014 (hurray for self-control!)

Mandala Tea

2oz Special Dark 2006 (HAD TO RESTOCK)
1oz Milk Oolong
1oz “Wild Monk” Mao Cha (curious about the new batch of leaf)
1oz Bu Lang Gong Ting – 2009 (sounds good, never had it before)

:D :D :D

No more tea purchases till sakura sencha season in March for me!

boychik said

great choice. Looking forward to your opinion on Bu Lang Gong Ting – 2009

YES! I can’t wait for more sakura sencha. It’s the perfect hiatus breaker.

I made 2 orders recently: one with Teavivre, and the other with David’s Tea. The DT one will get here next week, but the Teavivre one will take a few more weeks, I think.

Teavivre
4 Featured Flavory Oolong Teas Assortment Samples, with one sample each of:
- Taiwan Jin Xuan Milk Oolong Tea (Flavored)
- Taiwan Osmanthus Oolong Tea
- Strawberry Oolong Tea
- Taiwan Ginseng (Lan Gui Ren) Oolong Tea
- A glass teapot with 2 matching small glass teacups
- A free sample of Dragonwell (Long Jing) green tea
- A free sample of Silver Needle (Bai Hao Yin Zhen) white tea

David’s Tea
- 24 oz Bubble teapot in white with black leaves drawn on it (I couldn’t resist, since it was on sale, and once DT sells out its stock of special designs, it doesn’t restock)
- Tea thermometer (also on sale)
- 50g of organic lemon myrtle
- 1 each of their 4 tea-infused chocolate bars

I’m looking forward to what free samples DT will include in my order!

boychik said

Nice! My orders from Teavivre take 10 days in general. So you might be pleasantly surprised.
