Couldn’t resist getting the samples and Vicky’s Sponge Cake from Bluebird. I think my half-blue bird would agree.

Vicky’s Sponge Cake is delicious. Good choice :)

If it wasn’t for the name, coconut and berry together get me every time!

Cute bird!!

Awwww! I like him! I was curious cos I have a birdie too, one of her parents was blue (she’s green) so if she ever had chicks half of them would be blue! So I think of her as half blue too, heh. She’s a parrotlet.

I did too, now that I saw everyone else do it. :P (Which is good bc I didn’t realize they figured out international shipping!)

I did a nice Butiki Teas order. :) Decided to take advantage of the sale on Premium Taiwanese Assam! :D Ordered some other things as well, deciding I wanted the free shipping.

Cantaloupe&Cream 1oz (restocking)
Mi Xian Black 1oz (had this as a sample, wanted more!!)
Premium Taiwanese Assam 6oz (currently my favorite tea period)
Premium Taiwanese Assam Upgrade 2oz (had as a sample, wanted more!)
Citrus Dream 1/2oz (first time trying)
Watermelon Xylophone 1/2oz (first time trying)

I think that’s everything. I kept changing my mind a lot, so I might suddenly realize there’s something else too when the box gets here, heh. ^^;

Emily M said

Nice order!
Watermelon Xylophone is one of my favorite flavored teas! Enjoy.

Chizakura said

Oooh! :D

Definitely excited to try it in particular. I’ve heard so many great things about it, and so far I haven’t been disappointed in anything by Butiki, so I have high hopes :)

Emily M said

I’ve never tried the Assam – is it astringent at all?

Chizakura said

Very mildly. I don’t notice it at all unless I drink a cup of it immediately after something like Laoshan Black. It does come out a little bit more in second infusions, but even then it’s pretty mild.

It’s very very good, as I said it’s currently my favorite tea. :) This is also a good time to try it as it’s on sale! :)

Emily M said

Yeah, I’ve been eyeing it. When it went on sale, I figured I’d probably pick some up.

Splurged on a Verdant order to go with my Teavivre. I was craving some good unflavoured blacks to get me through the next crazy two months before my wedding. My dress is in but I still haven’t decided where to get it altered and it is (amongst other things) making me crazy. So I bought tea. :) I also seem to have decided that now is a good time to learn to love puerh so I threw some in there.

Laoshan Black
Amount: 2 oz.

Laoshan Black Chocolate Genmaicha
Amount: 2 oz.

Big Leaf Sheng Pu’er 2006 Yang Ji Tian Yuan
Amount: 1 oz.

Golden Buds Shu Pu’er Xingyang 2010
Amount: 1 oz.

The following were for a coworker:

Chocolate Chamomile Curiosity Brew
Amount: 1 oz.

Ginger Sage Winter Spa Blend
Amount: 1 oz.

Laoshan Black
Amount: 1 oz.

Saw that Zentea had a 20% off sale and decided to finally order!

Travel mug – I’ve wanted this for a long time! SWOOOOOON! In green of course! Though I was tempted by the black one!
Fruit tea Grandma’s Garden 50g
Oolong Coconut – 50g I’ve had this tea and it is amazing

A glass sharing pitcher from Mandala Teas because I realized that it’s actually necessary to the gongfu process and not an extraneous item :p

I need to order from Andrews & Dunham Damn Fine Teas. Just based off their tea descriptions.

Sil select said

Terri…you’re just adding to the box you may end up having to send me lol although 2 cup samples don’t take that much room heh

I’ve actually started putting that box together, btw!
It’s sitting here on my table, & as I’m making myself cups of various teas, I’m like, “I think Sil will like this one.” So far you’ve got a several from the Tea Spot & London Tea Room.
So obviously I won’t be sending it until my A & D order arrives!

Claire said

I’m excited to read these reviews, I’ve been wondering about the A&D teas for awhile!

Me too, Claire! I think I first saw them reviewed by LiberTeas, & I’ve hung out loitering on their website several times. I’m really looking forward to sampling!
