I just ordered this weeks 52teas tea of the week. I love the fact that they have free shipping but at the same time it’s dangerous because I feel like I’m much more likely to make an impulse buy haha
I say you got to try at least one this week for science. I want to know how they taste
Too many new teas coming soon. I am saving them for the Winter season this year instead.
I ordered some oolong samples… because I needed orchid oolong.
First order in quite a while, from Verdant!
Laoshan Roasted Oolong, 1oz
Hand Picked Early Spring Tieguanyin, 1oz
Hand Picked Spring Tieguanyin, 1oz
and, because Verdant is the best,
Gardens of Anxi and Golden Earl reblends!
I’m disappointed about Verdant’s lack of communication about the Laoshan delay and the fact that I can’t cancel.
If you emailed them, you might be able to cancel. I just wish the blends could be pre-ordered as well so i could lock those in.
Have they given any reason for the delay this year? I know that there was drought this year in Shandong, at least in Rizhao, maybe that had something to do with it? Just curious.
I don’t recall receiving an email about the delay as posted on the website that they will do when dates change. THOUGH, t be fair, i may have received one and just not registered what it was saying? I just noticed the date had changed when i was looking at the site again… heh
They only announced a 1 week delay, not a 5-6 week delay.
I tried emailing them earlier, still waiting for them to get back to me. I actually just realized how many vendor emails im awaiting haha
Is the Golden Earl reblend super secret? I looked on their web site and it doesn’t look like it is there.
TeaTiff – it was part of their blends club, so it is limited for now. I just managed to snag what was left after the blends club and bundle club shipped out.
David’s tea sold out of the 1 item i would have purchased, so Verdant got my money. Sad because LB won’t come fooorrreeeever, i picked up:
1st picking LB (though i liked it slightly less than LB)
Vanilla citrus Spice
Yu Lu Yan Cha pre-order
yeah, verdant confirmed the LB delay with me.
what even is yu lu yan cha? its obviously not actual yancha, why would they call it that? verdant even sells an actual yancha!
apt – I just read the page on this tea the other day. It was pretty neat how it came to be. It also describes how the name was crafted. Sil- Thanks for the reminder about Yu Lu Yan Cha. I am thinking I should add some of this to my order that will be shipped in the near future.
TeaTiff – the delivery date on this one changed to July as well, as a heads up.
Three orders in the past three days. Whoops, relapse!
Fengqing Dragon Pearl Black
Bi Luo Chun Yunnan Black
El Dorado Chai
I’ve been waiting on a few of WPT’s black teas to be back in stock, and then with the 4th of July sale I saw my chance. I couldn’t help it! My VT order is en route and now I have so many teas headed my way…
I have been so bad and like Kimquat have placed three orders in the last three days – unlike her, I ordered lots of teas. I need help…

Ubacat – the Mandala sale was a great deal, but I had just placed an order – I have TONS of Manadala tea here.
Lariel – the smallest amount that I saw was 50g – and some were 100g. I’m not a fan of that, but it’s sooooo cheap that I feel like if I don’t like something, will just use it as a black base for iced tea. I’ve tried a few and thought the quality was good….
Marzipan – all their oolongs – which includes some of the Fujian blacks – are 13% off – OOLONG13
Dexter, you can’t go wrong with YS. I have everything from your order and more…much more. Lotsa cakes. Very happy with my purchases.
Whispering Pines I placed an order myself. Sleeping Bear and El Dorado just couldn’t resist.
Verdant is great solid order. You did great. Enjoy. YS will take awhile but it worth waiting;-)
I’ve been eyeing YS longingly for a while. Might have to order some for my birthday.
Thanks boychik – I’m a big Verdant fan have been waiting for LB Chocolate Genmaicha to come back in stock – all the others are just replenishing favorites.
I’m I HUGE black tea fan – have been wanting to order from Yunnan Sourcing for awhile – I upgraded shipping to 10-20 days. I’m excited to try them. Will also be interesting to compare them to other sources I have here and to compare them to the WP I just ordered.
I’m waiting for the 5 for 5 new customer sampler from Verdant to be back. Regret not ordering that previously. (Hopefully they’re bring it back.)
Great teas! I hope to order from Whispering Pines on their next sale. I had too many orders going on this time.
Dexter – heh i can’t let stress make me shop. not until i get through all the purchases we had to make for moving the house
I resisted Yunnan, mostly because I made a big Whispering Pines order, subscribed to a Golden Tips tea box, and have a couple of other things coming in. Honestly I forget what I order half the time and then I’m delighted when things come in the mail.
I caved and ordered a 2.5 oz tin of Spring Keemun from Damn Fine Teas. free shipping till the end of the day today and limited edition tea!
Yes! Samples are the best for that reason. I almost never blind buy anymore :)
I placed three orders this weekend…yelp!
Coconut cream pie honeybush
Bannana pudding black tea
Cocnut creme candy
Pineapple upside down cake
Flowery pineapple oolong
Taiwanese mountain black
Canteloupe and cream
Wanting tea for vacation and I do not want to mess with loose leaf so I caved and placed another H&S order with some sachets.
