It has been a big weekend for tea…..probably the first since Black Friday. I got some English Toffee Matcha (2 large get one small free) from Red Leaf Tea (this is my son’s favorite flavor) and some black tea from Joseph Wesley Black Teas. I got the Keemun, Bai Lin, and Classic Chinese. It looks like free shipping kicks in from Joseph Wesley at about $40.
4oz of Noble Mark from Mandala. I am a weak woman.
but you’re a weak woman with good taste, that must count for something, right?
Lol let’s hope because I was this close to adding more Special Dark to my order.
I decided to take advantage of Teavivre’s spring sale and use up the last of my points left over from Black Friday.

Well I waffled for about 4 hours this morning, but I ended up buying DAVIDsTEA’s spring collection, and the beautiful blue whale nordic mug!
The total came to $50.00 exactly (for free shipping) so I took that as a sign. I could have waited until the weekend and tried to go in store to look, but really, I think this will end up being cheaper than being able to grab 25g of anything that catches my eye, as well as holding the mugs in my hands…
Eee! I’m excited. When will it get here already? :P
Yes. Thank you for agreeing to hold off! :D I am HOPEFULLY done for a bit, but I know, KNOW, that when DT has a new collection I will try them all. That’s just a thing that’s going to happen so long as I can find the appropriate $28 or so.
Hey I’m on a mission…gotta get to 140. Good thing i’ve sipped down like 8 teas today lol
That reminds me, Sil, I should drink my Hannibal teas so I can toss the rest into your box!
yeah i have more dr who teas to toss in to YOUR box..but uh it’s a little full…
I made an Upton Tea order. It’s been about a year since I ordered from them, when I got samples of all of their African. I thought I’d give some of their Japanese greens a go. My cupboard is lacking Japanese greens…

It is actually because of your post in the Canadian companies thread that we looked them up. And I ordered:
- Chocolate Strawberry Truffle Rooibos
- Lucky Star
- Swaziland Rooibos
- Prickly Pear
- Goji Strawberry
- Monk’s Blend
- Strawberry Meringue and
- Rhubarb Meringue
Then OMGsrsly and I are splitting:

Awesome. Most of their stuff is pretty good. I haven’t tried everything on that list but Prickly Pear and Frangelico Rooibos are a couple of my favorites. Rhubarb meringue and Goji Strawberry are good. Hope you enjoy them. Will watch for tasting notes. Always interesting to see what others think of local companies. Thanks for sharing.
Finally placed my Den’s tea order I’ve been waiting to place for months! Sakura sencha YAY!
1 x Mugicha – Iced Barley Tea (cold brew)
1 x Flavored Tea Tasting Set (pineapple, SAKURA, apple, and grape senchas)
1 x Genmaicha Extra Green (with Matcha) (2oz/56g)
1 x Sencha Fuka-midori (2oz/56g)
Great stuff, all very reasonably priced. I’ve had the Sakura and Pineapple sencha before, but never tried the grape or apple. I thought the flavored sencha tasting set was a great opportunity, though I wavered back and forth because I’d actually have preferred 2oz of Sakura instead of just 1oz. Oh well, I stuck to my budget :)
high five! I also ordered the Flavored Tea Tasting Set. And the Sencha Fukamsuhi.
Awesome. I’ve never tried the Fukamushi! I know I like the Fuka-midori though :)
Neither have I, but I know I’ll love it :D
With this order and the Upton’s, I will have so much green tea. Yaaaaaaasss <3
i wasnt going to order anything but you got me curious. do i need to branch into Japanese tea? Ok, i decided to get myself new to Den’s Tea sampler. Do you think this Sakura Sencha will last another week or two?
boychik, I think it took a couple weeks for the Sakura Sencha to become sold out last year… To clarify, did you get the flavored tea sampler or their newcomer sampler?
It depends on your taste :3 Japanese greens are vegetal, seaweed-like, and/or oceanic – flavors that tend to put some people off. Personally, these flavors are why I adore Japanese greens.
You might get the Sakura IN the new to Den’s sampler! That is how I first tried it! The sampler is fabulous, and a great deal too since it comes with a $3 off coupon for your next order :)
I’ll be interested to see your reviews boychik
i just ordered newcomer sampler. so i was thinking how long it will take to arrive and will it sell out? i do love seaweed any kind. also their ice teas look very good. they probably will be good for summer. have you tried their iced teas?
I’ve only had the iced barley tea, but I almost bought some ice mango green (didn’t want to go over budget!) The barley tea is awesome in the summer time! Super refreshing and reminds me of black tea but caffeine free!
All the senchas, flavored and otherwise, cold brew beautifully though :)
The newcomer sampler doesn’t sell out – they just change what teas to include. Also, it should arrive in 3-5 days. I’ve only had Sakura Sencha iced and it was incredibly refreshing last summer (man, that was a HOT one). Since you do like seaweed, I hope you enjoy these teas! Den’s Tea is great! :D
That’s what I’m hoping that I get Sakura as a sample. I’m very picky about flav. tea. As long as it doesn’t taste artificial I’m fine. You know those teas when you have scratchy throat and weird aftertaste. Blech. I have a feeling I’m gonna like it for summer. Btw I bought Japanese barley tea in Asian grocery. Didn’t make it yet, can’t read Japanese yet( no English direction )
Spent my Teavivre points on some more samples of a few of my favorites!
Fengqing Wild Tree Yesheng Raw Pu-erh Tea Cake 2013
Peach Jasmine Dragon Pearl Green Tea
And one I’ve been dying to try!
Aged Chenpi Ripened Tangerine Pu-erh 2009 – 10g
I’m excited to try the Chenpi Ripened Tangerine Pu-erh 2009, it caught my eye when I placed my order so I requested it for one of my free samples.
That tangerine pu-erh actually sounds good to me and I don’t usually like flavors, although if I do, it is usually citrus.
