I am a sucker. C’mon, really?!! French Toast tea!! Ordered new French Toast black tea from 52teas, as well as the reblend of Browncoat Genmaicha. ;P

Chizakura said

I’m tempted too. I love French toast. D:

I’m really tempted by that Genmaicha! Mostly for Firefly, but also for the tea itself. Have you tried it before?

Tealizzy said

No, haven’t tried it before. I took a risk! But I really like genmaicha (and Firefly), so hopefully it’ll be good!

I just grabbed 3 teas from 52 Teas, even though I was complaining about them being expensive (with shipping to Canada) just the other day. But I really wanted Butterbeer! And the French Toast! And I was hoping that the Cherry Vanilla Cola would make some good tea pops that my bf might like (in my latest plan to trick him into drinking tea).

Cavocorax said

I don’t feel so bad buying it because I’m officially starting to track all my expenses next Month, so this is my last order that I can sneak right by. :P

Sil select said

uh….you might have a bunch of teas coming…. i MIGHT have uh gotten carried away…

Cavocorax said

Hahahah. Thanks dude! Just let me know if you spy anything in my cupboard, and I’ll try to even it out. :P (I have A LOT of Butiki coming my way, but I have a feeling you’ve already got a lot there).

I caved and ordered a pouch of 52 Tea’s French Toast black. I almost walked away after seeing it posted here and on twitter, then I got the promo email later in the day and caved.

Chizakura said

Looking forward to the blog post! :D I want to see which owls are summoned by the aroma of French Toast tea.

Hopefully no owl gets sticky in the process! I need to make a few more owls as I’m putting some up for adoption.

Chizakura said

Seriously? I so want one xD

Sil select said

AAAAH! TELL US WHEN! though an owlbeast (moonkin) would be even more awesome lol

Cavocorax said

I second the moonkin request!

Chelle said

I love Moonkins! Especially the little moonkin hatchling pet on a certain online game.

https://www.etsy.com/shop/AwkwardSoul Barn and Snow Owl are up right now.

I’ve been thinking about having my Boomy in my blog recently, but I thought moonkin seemed kinda obscure, though random enough like my blog at times lol

Sil select said

i can’t even explain to you how badly i want a boomkin for my other half ever since i saw the one you made for yourself. he’s been playing wow as a druid since it came out… me? i love the turtles lol

Chelle said

OMG!!!! I really have to have one of these someday! Even if I need to learn how to crochet it myself!!!!

Sil select said

chelle – i have one of those in game lol :)

Chelle said

@ Sil- I have only played a druid to level 20 or so. I have a Rogue that I play since the game came out as well. Although it’s pretty rare when I log on. Too much real life now-a-days. My really close friends live far away in Chicago and Colorado so we used it as a weekly group get together to keep in touch. We would use Teamspeak and headsets and all….Those were the days.
Of course we would drink tea…spiked….mostly….cough… lol.

Azzrian said

Confession time … my husband and I met via teamspeak playing WoW PS I was a PvP druid through level 60 – then went raiding up to 70 then we got married and quit WoW

Sil select said

azzrian! that’s awesome..and makes me happy :) my other half and i didn’t meet playing wow but it was kind of our thing to do for the longest time together. heh I’m taking an extended break these days because of work but he’s still chugging away at it…most evenings i drink tea and work while he’s next to me raiding and playing :)

Azzrian said

Oops forgot to add while PvPing I was Boomkin … then went healer. I miss my Boomkin and seal form.

Azzrian said

Awee Sil that is sweet. I don’t think we could go back to playing and have a real life honestly. We both have HIGHLY addictive personalities and my hubby HAS to be THE BEST at everything lol. So I think once my daughter is in college and settled we will take up the gun range and golf lol

Chelle said

Azzrian…more confessions. I played Dark Age of Camelot since it came out too (2001). My friends and I had a stealther group of characters and played so much that on our days off together we didn’t sleep, we sure stirred up a lot of fire on the VN boards because of the havoc we would cause in PVP/RVR….
That carried over to WOW when it came out….I was such a gamer…I built monster computers myself just for online gaming…But seriously, I neglected so many other things in life. I saved a lot of money not going out though.
Now I have tea to fill the void…….seems to cost me more monthly than gaming…hmmmm.
I still have to level my main character up in WOW every time they increase max level and check out the new expansions.

Azzrian said

Oh I am sure you spend just as much in tea even with building gaming computers! My husband built his but by that time we were about done gaming lol so now it is used for graphic design – sort of – right now its collecting dust upstairs. I think talking about WoW Sort of talks me out of wanting to play again though. I do sometimes think I see Silver Leaf out in the yard but for the most part it was a life suck. I miss PvP far more than raiding though!
I did not like the last expansion – forget what it was called – it was about 3 years ago when they introduced the ability to change hair style etc…. I felt it was going a little too childish at that point in some ways. The thing I hated most about the game was ending up in an instance with a little kid and people being mean to them. Anyway – this is like therapy LOL no more WoW for me. :)

I ordered several of the cotton candy black iced teas from 52Teas (I’m on a iced tea kick this week),
and I joined Verdant’s monthly reserve tea club.

This might be the tipping point for me… I literally have things from both companies’ websites in my carts and am willing myself to place the orders! :-)

Chelle said

:) you can do it!!!!

I went with teavivre instead. Trying ALL the teas! :-)

Chelle said

Yeah! I have yet to order from Teavivre. Definitely have teas I want to try.

I was naughty and did a large Teavivre order. The only reason I could afford it was to take advantage of their offer for Fathers Day (spend $80 and get $12 off) and on top of that I had $14 reward points so I saved $26 :)

I couldn’t help myself! This site has made me an addict. After just Recieving my first verdant tea order today I had to make another order with my $5 off.
I ordered:
-Eight Treasures Yabao (yay!!!!!!!!!!!!)
-Bai Mu Dan White Tea
All I had to pay for was shipping:)
So excited. 2 perfect teas for iced steeps:)

You are in for a treat. Verdant is amazing! I’ve been tracking my incoming Verdant like a fiend.

MissLena said

I loveee Eight Treasures, I’ve never tried it iced, but it is so good hot, I waited all year for it to return and just got an oz last week, will probably get a lot more of it before its out :)

Chizakura said

My impulse is to say “So?”

The sign of me being an addict. xD; I think I better join you in that hiatus thread.

Cavocorax said

Haha. Just don’t be a bad influence on the people there. It’s sorta turned into an "Oh, I feel guilty but I just bought “X” amazing tea" confessional.

Tealizzy said

I just picked up that teapot! I really need to stop reading this thread! Bad influence!! ;)

So I took advantage of the H&S sale – saved $5, so I basically paid $10 for shipping. That’s ok, I suppose!

HT Vanilla Comoro – 20 sachet tin
Florence – loose 4 oz tin
Paris – loose tea sample
Tower of London – loose tea sample
Queen Catherine – loose tea sample
SoHo Blend – loose 4 oz tin
Pomegranate Oolong – loose tea sample
Boston – loose 4 oz tin

I thought that because I was going to spend so much on shipping ANYWAY, I’d better upgrade Boston and SoHo to tins instead of just samples (even though I’ve never tried them.) Now I’m wondering if I should have upgraded the Queen Catherine instead of the SoHo, but there will be plenty of time for regrets later.

Today I’m just celebrating my first full paycheque since I went off on maternity leave! (Only 5 more of those coming before I quit and move to ON, but I have money for now!)

Sil select said

I like queen Catherine but since I’ve discovered Steven and a&d, I think I prefer them a bit more :). I may hit you up to try soho and the vanilla Comoro. I think those are the only 2 apart from Tower of London that I haven’t tried? I think?

Cavocorax said

Good to know you like the other ones more than Queen Catherine as your reviews was one of the ones that made me think I should try a tin. :P But the Boston and SoHo seemed more like safer bets.

Maybe I’ll start a spreadsheet to track the teas ppl are interested in so I don’t forget by the time it comes in. (In a month? Who knows…)

I slipped. It had been so long since I placed an online tea order! It’s actually kind of funny – I was looking at my credit card statement the other day in wonder, because the total was significantly lower than it usually is each month. And then it dawned on me…. that there wasn’t a single tea order on it! It’s all cell bill, gas, and food. Heh…

Anyways! Teensy weensy Verdant order for me:
Laoshan Roasted Oolong – 7g, $2
Laoshan Green Oolong – 7g, $2
Bai Mu Dan White Tea – 7g, $2.75
Bergamot Rose Laoshan Black – 7g, $2
Laoshan Black Chocolate Genmaicha – 7g, $1.50

$14.75, minus $10 coupon

Grand Total: 4.75. Not too terrible…. right?!

Chizakura said

Jealous jealous jealous. xD I want all of those. Enjoy :D
