mmm placed an order with PureAroma just now – 30ish random teas! woot woot!
Yes but not until AFTER Saturday lol :) and they’re all sample sizes so easily sipdown end in 2-4 cups
Just like the 8 teas I have coming in the mail won’t be added to my stash until after Saturday :) and yay for sample sizes!
I should never look at this thread. I saw someone’s order from Zen Tea, and decided I needed to try their teas, too. I got 20G each of:
Green Tea-Coconut $2.00
White tea-Toffee Dream $2.20
Rooibos-Vanilla Heaven $1.80
Herb-Tumeric Ginger Organic $0.60
Herb-Bamboo integrity $2.00
Oolong-Bossa Nova $1.80
I’m really looking forward to trying the 2 oolongs.
I wanted more samples, not full sizes, as I have a lot of full sizes of unflavored black tea right now. It’s the bestest, so that’s ok, but I am trying to learn what else I like. I’ve explored a lot of unflavored teas, so now I’m branching out further, although many of these have a black base.
From Chado tea in California, I got the following dozen 1 ounce samples, all for under 2 dollars each, with 3.95 shipping – the whole order was 23.12USD:
- Green Christmas (green tea, orange peel, almonds, rose petals, cinnamon chips, apple pieces and cinnamon orange spice)
- Orange Blossom Oolong
- Red Fruits (black tea, strawberry, raspberry, red currant and cherry)
- Lychee Tea (black)
- Lemon Tea – with lemon peels (black)
- Sambucca/Licorice Spice (black)
- Phoenix (black tea, honey, caramel, vanilla)
- Almond Tea (black)
- Banana Tea (black)
- Butterscotch Tea (black)
- Samovar – Russian Caravan Fruity (black)
- Mate Carnival (Roasted mate, cocoa, rooibos, sunflower, cactus, cornflowers and almonds)
I’m a bit nervous because they’re primarily a teahouse, not chiefly an online retailer, but they had such cheap, big samples and huge selection. I’ll be sure to make notes for all of them.
I got a couple of their teas in a swap and while I haven’t tried one, I loooved the other (Earl Grey Exotique)… seemed to be very high quality flavored tea! Looking forward to your reviews.
I just ordered my first tea pot :) www.amazon.com/Creative-Home-Ceramic-Teapot-Infuser/dp/B001LQIDE2
I bought this one mostly for its cheapness. I’m glad to know it is a good pot! I’m also asking for a nice kyusu for my birthday! :D
2nd tea related order of the day! This time from Den’s! :D
Pineapple Sencha (2oz/56g)
Sencha Fuka-midori (2oz/56g)
Hashiri Shincha (2oz/56g)
Teapot Shudei – $5 until 4/30
I KNOW RIGHT? and only $3 for shipping. If you like Japanese greens jump on it!!! :D
If you haven’t bought their sampler for green tea novices for $3 I highly recommend it.
Darn. I already have. So I guess it doesn’t apply to me? Ah well. Still getting the teapot and their special sale on one of their senchas.
That sakura sencha was fantastic. I had some in my sampler but missed buying more before it sold out.
Thanks to Stephanie (no sarcasm intended!), I caved in to buy a Japanese green. sigh goodbye, willpower.
Sencha Shin-ryoku 2oz (with 20% off)
Have you had the shin-ryoku before? I wonder how it tastes compared to the fuka-midori!
It’s a new tea for me. Can’t wait to try it! I’ll definitely write a tasting note.
Bought 52 Tea’s Pineberry Honeybush
Currently eyeing Mandala teas for my next order, sigh, it’ll be a big one too.
1 LB of Jaclyn’s Cocomint Tea from Simpson and Vail because I love them and I love that they made me this tea and I need it with me at all times forever. yum!
Just placed my first order from Verdant!
Five Teas for $5 – 10g samplers of:
Hand Picked Tieguanyin
Yunnan White Jasmine
Shui Jin Gui Wuyi Oolong
and 7g of Master Han’s Wild Picked Yunnan Black.
I just grabbed the samples! I’ve spent weeks visiting the site to save for a coupon (and negate shipping to Canada) but this made me order now. This way I’ll have a better idea of what I like when I order in a few more weeks. Thanks!
