I just ordered Matcha from Ito En, I cant wait until it gets here
Another order from Della Terra. (I like their teas so much.)
Just ordered some samples from Georgia Tea Co. So much for the tea buying ban, who can resist $15 off $30?
Rocky Horror Spice
Rooibos Ginger Peach
So I caved and ordered some tea from Georgia Tea Co. That $15 off $30 was too much to resist. Lol. To be fair I didn’t buy any tea last month (technically) and I’m actually just using the money I would be spending at an Anime convention I decided not to go to, on tea instead. Lol. I’ll take any justification I can manage.

I haven’t ordered tea in a few months because I have way too much (not counting tea I ordered for my mother-in-law as a gift or my accidental continuation of the Verdant Tea of the Month Club after the free trial). But I knew I had to get the spring teas from Verdant so I ordered one ounce each of:
Mrs. Li’s Shi Feng Dragonwell Green
Spring Harvest Laoshan Green
Sun Dried Jingshan Green
Hand Picked Early Spring Tieguanyin (says pre-order but should be in)
Bai Mu Dan White Tea (pre-order arrives May 20th)
Laoshan Black Chocolate Genmaicha (haven’t tried yet)
and Eight Treasures Yabao (one of my favorites)
Because you know fresh superb quality tea and Mother’s Day treat. Now back on hiatus!
Thanks for the order, Autumn (and Happy Mother’s Day)! We’ve really been enjoying sharing the Spring harvests so far. Master Zhang’s tieguanyin arrived yesterday after an extra day in customs, and will start shipping out today. Can’t wait for the Bai Mu Dan to arrive, too- I know I’m going to be drinking it all summer.
I just ordered some more Laoshan Black, Golden Fleece, and Yuunan Jasmine from Verdant Tea. I also filled up my basket with samples. I like to try things and I wanted free shipping! That’s how they get us, right? That promise of free shipping… then we spend more than we would on shipping!
I think it’s fair to say (and my boyfriend and roommate would loudly agree) that this is Enough Tea (for a little while). I need to get rid of what I have before I spend any more money on this fun little hobby! Now to drink up my samples from my last Verdant order to make room in my tea drawer at work… tough job, but someone has to do it.
Thanks so much for your order! :) The fresh Yunnan Jasmine arrives next week, and we’ll see what we can do to surprise you with your free sample. Hope you have fun drinking through your samples from your last order!
Sloane Tea’s pop up shop had a 50% off sale here in Toronto. Picked up 2 tins of their Peaches and Cream; 1 Tin of divine cream; 1 tin of oolong creme; a tin of almond truffle a tin of crimson berry and a tin of queen of the hill. I probably could have picked up more given that the sale of that proportion is unheard of but i had to draw the line somewhere. eeeeesh!
I ordered 2 each of these SBT from 52teas on the Mothers Day sale:
My boyfriend will drink tea if I make it iced and put sugar in it, so I mostly ordered these to revel in the joy that he will be drinking tea.
Sil inspired me..I went to my local Chapters (bookstore) and picked up a 4 pack of Sloane teas. 30 g each of:
Earl Grey Classic
Peaches & Cream
And ZOMG the tins are sooo sweet and the tea is loose! They provide bags for it, but pfft bags haha.
They were not on sale :( but I have been eyeing them for ages, and finally broke down! Also slightly tea related, tried to buy the book ‘The Tea Rose’ from seeing someone had read it on the book thread, can’t remember who sorry, but it was sold out. Ah well, next time!
Haha well so far I LOVEE Heavenly Cream, so I will only potentially be slightly upset with you for making me get them because I will likely want to place an order in the future, and the shipping is not the best haha :P I am so excited to try the rest! :D
i think you might like peaches and cream too…so i figure i’m good for 2/4 lol I’d keep an eye at chapters anyway in case they eventually make it to the discount pile. Also sloane does do sales every now and then…
I’ll have to watch like a hawk lol, yeah I’m pretty sure I will love Peaches & Cream, it is probably the next one up to try, I think another place in my city has a different sample pack too that I might have to get, it’s more green teas I think
your best bet is to try and find them at other stores on sale. Just FB them and watch for their occasional sales. Worse case, in november there will be another pop up shop here in toronto and they always do at least a small sale at those…so i can pick stuff up and ship them out. What i really haven’t had a chance to do is see if you can buy bulk packages from them online – i know the pop up shop had 2oz bags. Since once i have a tin, it’s not like i need more.
Yeah I’ll keep an eye out around here for them and I’ll definitely find them on fb. Not that I need anymore tea..I still have soo many companies I need to try at some point, and I need to drink tea so I have room for it, space is diminishing quickly :(
