There are rarely sales that apply to the Try Me packs, so I had to go for this one!
Samples: A Rabbit’s Garden, The Malt Shop, Blueberry Crumble, Grapefruit Fusion, Lemon Pepper Melange
$9.74 with the 25% off including shipping!
1 oz Mt. Banzhang Farmer’s Cooperative ’03 Sheng
7g Shui Jin Gui Wuyi Oolong
So I banned myself from making any more orders this month because I went over budget last month. Then Verdant announced their Autumn Tieguanyin is back in stock. I had wanted to make an order previously but everything I wanted was out of stock. Damn. Now its back in stock, so I ordered before it was all gone again. Now I am officially banned from buying tea…maybe…
The Tieguanyin sucked me back in too. I said no more tea orders for the month and ended up spending $60 today on tea regardless.
1oz Autumn Tieguanyin
1oz Mi Lan Xiang Phoenix Mountain Dancong
And from Della Terra
1oz Sweet Peach & Ginger
1oz Strawberries & Cream
1oz Orange & Cream
1oz Mayan Mist
2oz Lemon Chiffon
2oz Lemon Lime Cream Tart
2oz Lime Chiffon
2oz Orange Brulee (oolong)
It didn’t seem like that much tea when I bought it…
The tea pet on the page for Hand Picked Autumn Tieguanyin page is super cute.
That was my promise this month too. Laoshan black genmaicha is breaking that.
I ban myself from buying tea all the time. When Nik was hanging around Steepster, we had our own 12 step meeting going & were sponsoring each other, but we both kept relapsing. I relapsed today…again…as I understand it, addiction is disease…I’m one sick puppy…
Laoshan Black Chocolate GenmaichaAmount: 4 oz.
Shipping & Handling: $4.50
Order Total: $23.25
From Verdant, I promised myself that I would buy this if he actually made it.
That sounds soooo goooood
Just bought 1oz of Laoshan Black Chocolate Genmaicha. And that is it! Maybe…I’m a weakling.
I also ordered some of the Laoshan Black Chocolate Genmaicha, along with some more Anxi Fo Shou black & Master Hans wild picked yunnan.
This is my second order from them this week. I also ordered Shui Jin Gui Wuyi Oolong and Mt. Banzhang Farmer’s Cooperative ’03 Sheng. I have a major shopping problem when it comes to Verdant and Mandala, I think.
Love love love the Anxi Fo Shou black. I have an ounce of it that I’m hoarding like a crazy person. Haven’t tried Master Han’s Wild Picked Yunnan yet but it sounds yummy.
Yeah, I have a real weak spot where verdant is concerned! I love Mt Banzang’s Sheng, I wish I could afford a whole cake of it! I also am planning another Mandala order…
Trying to justify a $300 tea purchase is difficult. Even with my ability to logic every tea purchase. I need to get more of Mandala’s Phatty Cake and the Yong de Organic. I’m waiting to finish at least one of the 10 cakes I currently have :(
Red Leaf Order:
Mint Chocolate Matcha
Raspberry &Cream Matcha
French Butter matcha
Madagascar Vanilla Matcha
French Butter! :o
Placed my first order with Della Terra Teas. The coupon plus some awesome sounding teas was too good to pass up. Pretty excited about all these ‘cause they all sound so tasty.
Apricot Carousel 1oz
Rainforest Nectar 1oz
Peach Oolong (Unsure of size)
Try me Sampler w/Love in a Cup, Mellow Mango Peach, White Chocolate, Orange Brulee(oolong), & S’mores.
I had wanted to get the Eight Candles in the sampler, but it was totally sold out. Ah well. Give me a good excuse to order from them again to get samples of the rest of the teas I want to try. Lol.
Love in a Cup and S’mores are both pretty similar to Eight Candles, I did a small taste-test with all 3 recently (that I should really log…) but it was definitely my least favorite of the bunch. It’s not bad or anything, but I think if you have Love in a Cup and S’mores you aren’t missing much ^^
That’s what I was thinking since they all sounded pretty similar. But I liked that Love and S’mores both had chocolate in them. XD We’ll see when I get them. I still might just get a sample of the Eight Candles sometime down the line to do my own comparisons. Or maybe see if someone would want to do a swap here. Eventually. ^^
Placed my first TWO orders with Della Terra (Couldn’t even wait for the first one to arrive before placing the second order! haha.)
I had tried some samples received in swaps and knew enough to know I’d like them, and THEN new ones were announced. Oy! Had to.
I’m currently waiting for these:
- Blueberry Crumble (2 oz)
- The Malt Shop (2 oz)
- Blueberry Creme (1 oz)
- Pineapple Upside Down Cake (1 oz)
- Cafe Vanilla (2 oz)
- S’mores (2 oz)
- Love In A Cup (1 oz)
- Lemon Lime Cream Tart (2 oz)
- Shamrocks & Shenanigans (1 oz)
- Creamy Eggnog
- Maple Pecan Oolong
(stocking up on both of these as I love them)
Harney & Sons
- Tower of London
- Vanilla Comoro (stocking up, LOVE it)
PLUS I have some swaps coming in, including some Red Leaf Matcha which I am dying to try!
Not sure how I’m going to innocently smuggle these ones in…
EDIT Gawd it looks even worse all written out like this :/
But tea tasting is important! Those Della Terra teas look good.
Adagio order because I got my $10 gift certificate last night!
Taurus-Zodiac 2012 (3oz)
Orchard Sampler (4 sample packs)
I placed my first ever order with Butiki Teas tonight. I’ve just recently started visiting this site and am already addicted. Having read all the wonderful things people have been saying about this company (and the really good reviews on their tea) I have to find out for myself. I tried to order flavors that I can’t get/find close to home, or things I haven’t tried before. I ordered:
Almond Indulgence 1 ounce
Pumpkin Creme Brulee 1 ounce
Tamarind Pop 1 ounce
Pistachio Ice Cream 1 ounce
Cantaloupe & Cream 1/2 ounce
Coconut Cream Pie Rooibos 1 ounce
Good Morning Sunshine 1 ounce
Subtotal: $33.25 USD
Shipping and handling: $10.50 USD
Total: $43.75 USD
Can’t wait for my order to arrive. Once I’ve saved up a bit, really would like to try some of Red Leaf Tea flavored Matchas.
Excellent choices! And I agree this site is addictive quickly! :)
Thanks Stephanie. I’m quite excited about it. I can’t wait to try some of the other stores that are recommended here. My cupboard seems really bare compared to others here. Glad I found this site.
