Building my gongfu setup, hoping to get a yixing pot sometime soon :)
Alright guys, ordered my last big Red Leaf Tea order for a little while! I need to drink down my matcha stash, that’s for sure! But until then…
Stocked up on some favourites: Black Cherry, Cheesecake, Madagascar Vanilla and Caramel
And a few new ones to try! Fig, Caramel Popcorn and Sangria!
Just ordered three teas from Simpson and Vail via Amazon.com
Highland Morn Blend
Simpson and Vail Special Blend
All were 1oz samples running $1.67 each. Can’t wait to try them!
I keep seeing all the great reviews of the KaiMatcha Premium. With the discount I couldn’t resist, so I got 30g.
Now, I’m just trying to wait until the new Verdant alchemy blend is revealed before I get more from David!
Caved and made my second Della Terra order! I’m getting so addicted to their flavoured black teas. I got a couple rooibos blends as well for a change.
Earl Grey Creme
Chili Chocolate Truffle
Chocolate Pumpkin Pie
Apple Cinnamon Yogurt
Pineapple Upside Down Cake
I just finished ordering this evening my 12 days of Christmas tea swap items! I am so happy with myself lol.
I can’t post what I got but I wanted to gloat :)
It was painstaking only because I make things difficult but I had a blast doing it at the same time because that is how I am wired evidently.
Now I shall hunt for the perfect packaging – not to put any pressure on myself.
I’m in the same boat! I just placed such a big order and I totally want to talk all about it. But, even if I say a couple, people will at least know where it’s from. :( So I called my mom and told her about my two most recent orders and she judged me. lol
I just received my first order from Sugimoto America. Becoming slowly ensnared by an addiction to matcha lattes, I decided to venture out a bit and ordered sample packs of sencha, hojicha and genmaicha powders, along with samples of the respective teas for steeping. I haven’t tried these yet but SA’s prices seem more than reasonable; the company’s response was immediate and FedEx shipping prompt; a Facebook “like” got me a 15% discount and the package contained a handwritten thank-you and coupon for my next order, should there be one. If their products are even half as good as their service I’ll probably be delighted.
Got another order, this one from Teavivre, I was able to use two coupon codes and get extra off…yes I realize I’m trying to justify my purchase! But it’s tea and tea does not need to be justified! Anyways:
Organic Hangzhou Tian Mu Qing Ding Green Tea 50g (1.75oz)
Organic Tian Mu Mao Feng Green Tea 50g (1.75oz)
Superfine Jasmine Downy Dragon Pearls Green Tea Sample 14g (7g *2)
Premium Jasmine Dragon Pearls Green Tea Sample 14g (7g *2)
Jasmine Silver Needle White Tea (Mo Li Yin Zhen) Sample 10g (5g *2)
5 Featured Pu-erh Teas Assortment Samples 10 sample sachets
“But it’s tea and tea does not need to be justified!”
I think I’ll embroider this on a sampler and hang it in my kitchen. Thank you, Invader Zim!
I want to start embroidery just so I can make a sampler that says this!
I’m glad I can inspire, lol! If you do embroider it, I hope you can post a pic of it, I think it would be neat!
