Um, whoops. Saw that Verdant’s new TGYs were nearly gone, and placed an order for 2 oz. of each, and a sample of Xingyang Silk Road Spice. Bad me…

Well, you knew it was coming. I might have been able to maintain my resolve if Terri hadn’t broken down, but even that is kind of doubtful. So here it is, my very first Red Leaf Tea order.

- Caramel matcha. Small (30g), Starter (basic grade), Distinctive flavour.

- Tiramisu matcha. Small (30g), Starter (basic grade), Distinctive flavour.

I have to admit, I’m looking forward to putting one of my new kitchen gadgets to use with this. I have this milk frother thing that I’ve never used, and I think it might work well for this purpose.

Welcome to the dark side! BWAHAHA. But seriously, I bet you will LOVE the caramel matcha, it’s just… so good. So so good.

Nik select said

I’m looking forward to it. =)

Ohh… I want that milk cafe! That might end up on my birthday wish list for next year! It will take a while for me to come up with a justification for it, because I don’t have lattes as often as I drink tea. So, it was easy to justify the Breville One Touch because, I drink a lot of tea every single day. It is the most used appliance in the house second only to the fridge which is constantly running. So, that was a worthwhile purchase. But this … is a bit spendy but I really want it and I might have more lattes if lattes were easier. So… see, I’m working on the justification thing as we speak…

Nik select said

Oh, man, you sound like me: I can justify almost anything. :D I was also thinking of using this for the cold matcha prep:

(I am incredibly lazy. And impatient. The ritual of preparation is not a “thing” for me.)

Nik, I’ve been way out of control lately, just haven’t gotten down to posting all my purchases on this list…LOL
In fact, I feel Another Verdant order coming on soon…

Drove through Raleigh yesterday and stopped to meet some family, so I thought I’d look for a tea shop (I have yet to find one near me that isn’t Teavana) and found Tin Roof Teas. They source teas from TeaGschwendner and another place, plus have a few of their own blends. Anyway got:

100g Moroccan Mint No. 1580 (which smells fantastic!)
50g Orange Blossom Oolong
50g Traditional Ti Kuan Yin No. 2244
50g China Lapsang Souchong No. 581 (for the fiancé)
50g Tung Ting Oolong No. 628
50g China Milky Oolong
50g Darjeeling Margaret’s Hope Autumnal (285)

Nik select said

Orange Blossom oolong sounds so good! I love orangey teas.

Nik select said

Well I think that’s totally awesome, and I’ll be doing the same when I’ve got money coming in again (and I’ve caught up on bills). Congratulations to you on landing a job!!

Since there is free Fed Ex shipping, I had to get Kusmi’s Russian assortment. 25g each of Troika, which I already love, Prince Vladimir, St. Petersburg, Anastasia, and Bouquet of Flowers. Right under $5 for each of the tins shipped is not bad at all. I just wish the caramel one came in one of these samplers!

RAAGGGH! Putting myself on a no buy now! (not counting matcha deals)

Huge Butiki Tea order, I haven’t actually done a tea order this huge in a long time! What drove me over was Spring Twist, I really want to try it, but hit that $5 shipping bracket. So I asked my sister if she wanted anything (she’s only purchased from DavidsTea) and she picked something, and that was permission for me to buy more and fill up the shipping price bracket!

Strawberry Oolong
Grapefruit Dragon
Organic Spring Twist
Maple Pecan Oolong
Flowery Pineapple Oolong
Peach Oolong
Watermelon Xylophone SALE!!! I got 3 of these, 2 for me, 1 for my sister who is visiting in a few weeks.

Nik select said

Mmm…there are a few in there I’d like to try at some point. =) (Must. Not. Succumb…)
