Honey cat broke a few of my teaware items :( She broke a gaiwan and two Japanese cups. The gaiwan I didn’t mind as it was plain white and I had three of those anyway, but the Japanese cups were my first and I loved them. Still she didn’t mean it, she’s old and her balance isn’t what it used to be. Bless her.
So I searched over the weekend and finally made my decision on replacements:
I got the last of this bamboo design (which was on sale)
And two of these beautiful bowls
Total was $57 which was around £35.50 including the shipping from Japan.
We had a friend over yesterday who was getting over an illness. I served her some Teavivre’s superfine grade Ali Shan oolong tea which she really enjoyed, so I ordered her a 100 gram bag today, and got some Oriental Beauty for myself.
I made my first order with Yunomi.us just now. I wanted to do it on the first of the month so I could get one of the limited “press sample” packages they give out. So here’s what I got:
- NaturaliTea #06: Organic Genmaicha (sample size)
- Obubu Tea Sampler Set: 4 Spring Sencha Teas
- Kurihara Tea #05: Gyokuro Tea Sampler Set
- Monoucha Genmaicha from Ishinomaki, Miyagi (sample size)
- Obubu Tea Sampler Set: 4 Roasts of Houjicha
- Kesennuma Kuwacha Sencha: Mulberry Leaf Tea (free sample)
- Yamane-en: Hokkaido Dattan Sobacha (free press sample)
- Yamane-en: Aomori Dattan Sobacha (free press sample)
I’m really looking forward to trying these, as I think my palate leans towards Japanese greens over Chinese ones.
oh….Harney is having a free shipping deal, which gets me every time. Just stocked up on Malachi McCormick and ordered a bunch of samples of their black blends so that I can continue the search for the perfect milk & sugar companion….
Pu Erh Earl Grey
April Sample- English Toffee Matcha
Apple Pie Keenum
Orange Pineapple Honeybush
Strawberry Marshmallow Treat Genmaicha
All Citrus Black Tea
I guess it’s a good thing that Butiki is sold out of Hello Sweetie and the new custom blend since I probably blew my tea budget for this month on A&D’s Damn Fine Tea:
I was impulsive and I pulled the trigger on it!!! (bad. bad Cavo)
Haha, good for you! I have been eyeing their teas for a long while but I just can’t commit myself to buying such large amounts! They should seriously come out with some nice sampler.
They should! I wonder if they’ve ever considered it!
If you’d like, I can send you a couple cups worth of each once it arrives? It’s shipping to Canada, but I expect to have it by next weekend?
Hey, Cavocorax, that would be awesome! We could have a little swap. Anything in my cupboard you’d like to try?
And too bad they can’t make samples of their teas, Sil :(
A & D is one I would really like to try but between the large sizes and shipping I don’t know if I ever will. I’d love it if they expanded to include samplers some day but I think they would need to be bigger and alter their business model for that to happen. Maybe some day!
UNiquity – i can always send you some to try when my order gets here. To be honest, i thought it was a stupidly large quantity as well, and then my tin was all empty…and i was sad lol
Oh, if it’s to my taste then 125 grams doesn’t bother me at all! Buying that mych off the jump though has got me in trouble before haha. I also am better off avoiding limited edition teas because what happens if I fall in love? Thanks for the offer though!
the doubleknit, tiger assam and red tailed hawk aren’t limited editions, so i could send samples of those :)
