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.

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!

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!!!!

So it’s not June..but it wasn’t exactly a tea order. :) My other half approved it but we picked up 4 cups from verdant – 2 as a gift for my parents :)

I just bought my birthday present (it’s less than a week away) from Verdant:

Jingdezhen Tall Lotus Gaiwan
Jingdezhen Red Lotus Tea Cup
Earl of Anxi sample
Laoshan Black Chocolate Genmaicha sample

Oh man. I’m so tempted by that Gaiwan and cup. But I keep backing out since it’s my first gaiwan and I’m unsure about it. Lol.
I should just get them call it a birthday present for myself too since mine’s at the end(ish) of the month. XD Though I was eyeing this owl teapot and cup set. /ponders/

It’s my first gaiwan also. I’ve been wanting one for months, and I’m super excited to receive it and brew some finer teas. Also, the design appeals to me waaaay much more than what I’ve seen so far, and I’ve done quite a bit of searching.

Happy purchase is happy <3

Awesome!

Ahaha, I read that as “so I know I’m Vegan and supposed to be partying and what not”… was wondering what special vegan holiday was going on that I was unaware about… until I reread it.

Also, way to buy tea on vacation :P

Chizakura said

@Kittena I did the exact. Same thing. xD

Hmm, now I should look up their teaware. It seems everyone’s buying, I must admit I’m curious.

Edit: Pout-arama! Those jars were so beautiful! I would’ve loved to have had one of each. But alas they’re all sold. I knew I should’ve looked sooner! Dx

MissLena said

@kittena and chizakura, haha woo vegan party! Lol nope, in sin city buying tea, that’s me! :)

The teawares are gorgeous and so hard to resist!
