Just placed my Mandala order. I can’t post it I just can’t I’m still in shock of what I have done. Lets just say I did manage to get my yixing pots, and some wonderful teas, and a water boiler warmer for my experience into Pu-erh. It was probably not necessary, but will make for enjoyable time sitting in my living room at my coffee table not having to run to the kitchen constantly. The scary part is I had to take a few items OUT of my cart to stay under the amount I had to spend which really should have gone elsewhere BUT I am excited, happy, nervous, etc.

DaisyChubb said

yay that is SO exciting! I would love to see pictures of your yixing pots when they arrive ee! I’m excited for you!!!

Azzrian said

Thank you! I am trying to ignore what I spent there lol but I know I am going to have a blast getting into pu-erh!!! I have really loved nearly every pu-erh I have tried and some of it was certainly not even the best. I have several from Verdant sitting here waiting for yixing pots. I just could not see steeping them without seasoning a pot at the same time. I will be sure to get some pics up once they are here! :)

DaisyChubb said

That sounds lovely! I’m sure it will be SO worth the wait <3

Kittenna said

I’m so happy for you! And am expecting pictures by the bunches :D

I’ll have to live vicariously through you, because there will be no specific teaware, etc. purchases for me until I’ve settled down, because I already have too much stuff. And settling down isn’t going to occur, likely, for another couple years (10 more months of my degree at least, plus a possible year working in Australia/NZ… or travelling Europe…) Sigh. (Actually, I want to settle down moreso because I want some kitties…)

Yay for Mandala! I hope you got some great stuff. I have been so pleased with them.

Azzrian said

Take your time Krystaleyn seriously there is plenty of time for kitties. I love mine but they (and the doggies) are the main reason we don’t get to travel more. Kids are older now and we’re kinda stuck. We did board them once for a week when we went to Florida to get married but I felt horrid the whole time with them being away from us. Travel, have fun, tea pots, and fun tea stuff can wait as can the furkids! Live it up girl!

And thank you Amy I am looking forward to the new experiences.

Nice order! I want some of the new iced teas as well but will have to wait. May miss the discount code but oh well. Ill get it in eventually. The Neapolitan and Cotton Candy have my focus!

DaisyChubb said

You never know, after summer they might go on sale as well! ;) Yeees me too – I’ve had his Neapolitan honeybush and it was divine!

It’s been so long since I’ve ordered anything from 52teas – I’m pumped!

Azzrian said

True it may go on sale again!
I am so happy for you too! Its so cool how giddy we get with our tea orders :)
I was tempted by the butterbeer as well but the licorice scares me lol.
Enjoy and hey at least you are getting all that sweet tooth stuff without the calories! YAY!
Ohhhhh I bet you are going to come up with some AMAZING recipes with some of these. No pressure though lol
Loving your blog! :)
Where do you get the time and energy?!?!

DaisyChubb said

Ugh good question!
Honestly, the blog is the only thing keeping me happy right now – that’s why I haven’t stopped :)
I don’t really have the time or energy with my full time job, but I’m a creative spirit and there are days when I just feel drained from the monotony of it all – you know?

So tea & the blog keep me creating and going, and happy! The tea with no calories and the baking with.. well.. let’s not talk about it ;)

Thanks Azzrian! You’re a wonderful positive spirit and your tasting notes always make me smile :)

Azzrian said

Aweee thanks Daisy. Keep up the great work! Your creative spirit truly does show through it!

DaisyChubb said

Thank you Azzrian! Sorry for the late reply – you’re too sweet!

Azzrian said

Ah don’t even worry about it – its hard sometimes to keep up with all the posts :)

Have to take myself off email notice on this thread. I bet I had 25 emails today. Lol

Kittenna said

Haha, me too, but Gmail groups them all nicely, so I deleted the massive email and came on here to read everything properly in order! :D

I’m not supposed to order any more tea. Not because I can’t afford it, but because I have run out of room for tea. There’s overflow all over the kitchen table, and two giant shelves in my cupboard are over-stuffed with it. I think I’m going to have to expand to another shelf! So for now, I am in swap-only mode… or at least that’s what I told myself. But after my kitty passed I’ve been looking at a lot of cat photos (which make me feel both sad and better, oddly enough), and then I saw a tea… with a picture of a kitten in it. A KITTEN IN MARSHMALLOWS. Obviously the tea gods want me to have more tea, right? Lemony marshmallow kitten tea? So I now have:

52teas
Sun and Cloud Mist, 2 oz $8.99

I almost added Butterbeer and SeaBreeze to my cart as well, but I’m trying to be good!

DaisyChubb said

Ohhh the kitty almost drew me in, with it’s adorbs eyes and fluffy furs

Azzrian said

Yup almost got me too but money was gone on another order.

Azzrian said

I managed to get some.

I just had to add that I broke down and bough the 500g bag of Sticky Rice Puerh from Chicago Tea house. I’ve been eyeing it forever and the coupon code went down to 60% so… I can’t wait. :)

Azzrian said

Good purchase! I love this stuff too!

I did too…I really wanted to try it. I hope it arrives soon!!

DaisyChubb said

Yes me too!
Puerh ages nicely too so it’s definitely worth it to get the 500g ;)

That’s what I was thinking! I can’t wait to get it!

I received mine yesterday all 100+ pieces!! This is going to last a LONG time!

Azzrian said

Good GOLLY! Enjoy!

Seriously! I might be willing to swap one or two…lol!

DaisyChubb said

Oh wow! haha I seriously can’t wait – hope it comes this week, but Canada Post is slow magee most of the time n_n;

(ps. drink some for me in the meantime ;) )

Kittenna said

Ooooh jealous. I haven’t tried it yet but probably will love it…

DaisyChubb trust me I have been! :)
Kittenna did you order some? I think Tony has some left in stock. If not shoot me a message, as you can see I have PLENTY to share!

Kittenna said

I have a couple en route from lynne-tea :D Hoping I love it! If I do, I will keep you in mind for a swap if you’re up for it :)

And this – placed in second order as I still had points to use and for some reason they only let you use 100 points per order – shipping is free if you choose the regular shipping so not sure why they don’t let you use all at once but what a deal!
