1. It’s May. I never said when in May I had to wait ’til.
2. I had a very upsetting day yesterday. I need the comfort of knowing tea is on the way.

So 1+2=Butiki. :)

1oz Foxy Roxy Banana Walnut Treat
1oz Ruby Pie
1oz So Long, and Thanks for all the Licorice
3oz Organic Irish Breakfast
4oz Premium Taiwanese Assam
1oz Organic Guranse
Darjeeling Delight Sampler
1/2oz Citrus Dream
1/2oz Peppermint Patty

There are so many worse ways to deal with an upsetting day…honestly…tea is the BEST way to cope. You’re putting your health and wellbeing first, SO important :p

Mine is coming on Saturday!

Awesome! So many on there I want to try too! Enjoy! :D

Chizakura said

@Jackie T, yes, I tend to drink away my sorrows … with TEA! :)

@Stephanie, thankyou! :) Which ones specifically were you wanting to try? I must admit I’m curious. xD

Peppermint patty, foxy roxy, citrus dream and ruby pie! They all sound wonderful.

Chizakura said

Ah for three of those, I can definitely attest that they’re wonderful. :) Citrus Dream is my favorite tisane, the only one that I like enough to drink every night. Peppermint Patty is quite nice too, its mint chocolate at its best. And when it cools, it gets all sweet and marshmallowy.

Foxy Roxy is super amazing too. I only had a sample of it, and I needed more. xD Ha. If you like bananas, it’s a must.

As for Ruby Pie, this’ll be the first time trying it, and I’m very excited for it. Strawberry Rhubarb pie is my favorite.

All that stuff sounds great!

Sorry to hear about your upsetting day Chizakura. I’m glad the tea will help a little bit.

Chelle said

Those all sound wonderful! I really want to try the Ruby Pie and the Premium Taiwanese Assam.
I hope the rest of your week goes better!

Since I’m breaking a tea buying hiatus, might as well do another order.

Upton Tea Imports
15g sample: Magnolia Blossom Oolong
15g sample: Green Rooibos Poire Creme
12g sample: Pomegranate Magnolia White Tea
15g sample: Peach Melba Fruit Tea
15g sample: Turkish Apple
12g sample: Lapsang Souchong Black Dragon
almost $14 after shipping.

Mostly ordered for the Magnolia Oolong and Green Rooibos Poire, but since Upton’s samples are so cheap, I added a few more. Sooo tempted to get larger sizes, but uggg.. 125g? So much tea!

Chizakura said

It seems May 1st has inspired a couple of us to break the hiatus. ;)

Happy tea drinking to us both~

totally, lol! I’m tempted to do a Butiki order too!

My 30th birthday is in 10 days, I decided to celebrate the occasion by doing something I don’t normally do and buy something that is just for me and not worry about the cost.

Teavana

German Rock Sugar 1LB Bag 8.50
Youthberry/ Wild Orange w/ Rock Sugar Sample 1oz 0.00

Sales Tax: 0.47
Shipping: 0.00
Total $: 8.97

I got a phone call from the fraud division of my credit card company. I guess they have flagged all Teavana orders since the breach.

Adagio

berries sampler (black teas) $7.00
orchard sampler (oolong teas) $7.00
masala chai sample $0.00
orchard sampler (white teas) $7.00
honeybush sampler $7.00
ingenuiTEA teapot and green $24.00

5% off coupon $-2.60
rural shipping surcharge $2.00
Total: $51.40

I loved my 32oz ingenuiTEA so much I decided to get the smaller one as well that way I can take it when I travel. I love that Adagio has the sampler packs, I wanted to try a variety of their teas since I’m fairly new to ordering from them. I may have gone a little nuts with this one.

Not tea, but tea related. Yesterday I ordered 24 tins from specialty bottle in an effort to better organize all of my tea. I spent a little over $60.

Unless there is a really good sale at Della Terra I am officially done for the month. Kinda depressing since it’s only May 1st.

Woohoo! Happy almost birthday :)

For May Day… ordered some black tea from NMTC.

Holiday. Good excuse! :)

There was a strawberry Earl Grey. That’s good for Summer, right?

strawberry earl grey?? that sounds AWESOME!

Their Lady Londonberry, it sounded too good not to try.

I ordered boysenberry and cotton candy matcha from Red Leaf Tea yesterday. Those sound so summery to me. I made the mistake of checking my order status on RLT just now and saw the strawberry and cream on the daily special…I almost couldn’t close the browser window to keep me from ordering it!

We strawberry and cream sounds summery too!

Time to order the new 2013 Spring Flush Darjeelings from Mariage Freres:
Castleton SFTGFOP1 DJ1 100 grams
Bloomfiled SFTGFOP1 DJ5 50 grams
Ambootia FTGFOP1 50 DJ2 50 grams
Jungpana SFTGFOP1 DJ13 100 grams
Chamling FTGFOP1 100 grams
Risheehat SFTGFOP1 DJ20 50 grams
Namring SFTGFOP1 DJ2 100 grams
Sivitar FTGFOP1 DJ1 100 grams
It’s too painful to write down the prices of the tea.

Sil select said

what are you paying to ship all that, and are there any additional costs you get dinged with? :)

Excelsior said

28.5 Euros for Shipping. Then there is a handling fee of $30+. Ordering from Mariage Freres is an expensive proposition, but I have found no equal to the quality, taste, flavor of their First Flush Darjeelings.

Sil select said

ugh it’s the handling fee that sucks. Shipping i could tolerate for MF. Thanks for letting me know

OK now that I have a new address (even though I’m not living there yet), I broke down and placed my first Verdant order. I got their 5 teas for $5.00 special and:
Mi Lan Xiang Phoenix Mountain Dancong 1 oz.
Big Leaf Sheng Pu’er 2006 Yang Ji Tian Yuan 1 oz.
Golden Buds Shu Pu’er Xingyang 2010 1 oz.
Laoshan Black Chocolate Genmaicha 2 oz.
Laoshan Village Chai 2 oz.

Really need to stop buying more, until I get settled into my new place.

Verdant is worth it!

Dexter said

I’ve been wanting to try them for awhile now, really glad I finally placed an order. I tried to place one for Mandala, but they wouldn’t ship to Canada. I think I could have stopped once I tried those two places. Oh well if they don’t want to sell to me I guess that’s their loss (but two of the teas I really wanted to try are on sale :(((

Dexter said

OK Grace just informed me that if you email Garrett at Mandala they will ship to Canada, it’s just not set up on their website. You have to pay through paypal. :)) This makes me happy.

Sil select said

What’s the shipping to Canada? Once you order anyway

Cavocorax said

Yes… I’d be curious to know, especially with this sale you’re talking about. Not that I need to buy anything, but it’s for… science? :p

Dexter said

I sent an email asking for a shipping quote. I “ordered” 3 oz of loose tea, two 100 g pu’er cakes, and a pick. Once I hear back I will update this post to let you know, if and how much shipping will be.

Dexter said

OK I sent a list of items that I wanted to Garrett, he emailed back saying that they would ship, but needed complete name and address for their software to get a shipping quote. I sent him that info, I got an email back with the exact shipping quote. Awesome customer service.
I ordered 3 oz of loose tea, two 100g pu’erh cakes, and a pick. The shipping was 9.50!!!. I think that’s awesome.
If anyone is interested, I would advise emailing them a list of what you want and your complete shipping info to them and ask for a quote. You have to pay through PayPal.

Edit to add: AND They shipped it already. Love to find companies with that kind of customer service. Fantastic!!!!
