I dithered on this one for a while. I need to pay a little more attention to my purchases for a while now than I usually did. (Not that I was ever all that much of an impulsive buyer) 52teas have a habit of arriving with an extra customs fee bill, so I’ve cut it nearly off my Availability List. There are exceptions, but they are fewer than they were before and I’m less willing to take a chance on something that might be good. So I wondered if it wouldn’t be better to just make a regular order at a shop I had never tried before instead.

Having put together a mock-order, however, it turns out that even if I get the customs bill on this, it was still much cheaper. Plus Husband rooted for this. I think he had almost as much fun with it last year although he seems reluctant to admit it.

I did it… I have given in to the temptation of Christmas deliciousness and fun of 52teas… Really, I did try to resist, but it is so much fun!!!

I may have tried many of them, but it is totally worth the fun! :) Can’t wait to share reviews with all of the others joining in on the fun this year! :)

Any way to know which teas will be included in this? I guess I’m just going to buy but I’m hesitant because I have a mint allergy. But I guess I could just give those teas to my BF.
And when does it ship?

Babble said

We don’t get to know the teas until we open them, but you may want to contact Frank directly and he might be able to work with you regarding your allergy. I know a couple of 52teas blends do have mint.

I gave in and treated myself to this. _
Looking forward to seeing which tea’s I get.

Well, I had a really ROUGH experience with a vendor this year. I ordered gift boxes for the samplers about a month ago, and I was told repeatedly that they were going to ship on x day, or that they were shipping “today”. Well as of this moment, they STILL have not shipped. Fortunately, I got fed up with this vendor and ordered the boxes I needed from another vendor at the end of last week, and I am happy to say they arrived today. Tomorrow we will start assembling and shipping the samplers. (The sample pouches are all made up and ready to go, we just have to build the boxes, fill them and ship them).

I REALLY had hoped to get these shipped early this week at the latest. I apologize for the delay. Rest assured, I will NOT be using this vendor for anything time-crucial in the future. I apologize to everyone for the delay.

Thanks so much for keeping us updated! It is much appreciated!!

Dustin said

Ah, ok cool! I didn’t see a shipping date mentioned anywhere so I thought I’d ask. Bummer about the vendor lagging. I have had frustrating experiences like that before too! Looking forward to trying your teas!

I really don’t buy a lot of blends, so if that’s what 52Teas is I don’t know that I’d do it. But it does sound like fun. Is it like an advent thing?

Uniquity said

It’s an advent thing, but done leading up to Christmas rather than after. 52Teas are all blends though so if you don’t like flavoured teas you might be a little disappointed. I don’t know of any unflavoured tea advent calendars, actually. That would be a real treat. Maybe we should get Verdant to do one!

Sil select said

UNiquity, i think you’re on to something there. That would be fantasatic!

There’s one I saw from a British company but it was like 50 GBP for the 24 cups of tea.

Uniquity said

Now that I’ve said it, I really want one. How amazing would that be? Brilliantly nuanced pure teas, day after day.

momo said

Found it! And it’s too early for memory work so I believe I meant $50 not 50 pounds, seeing the price now LOL http://www.imperialteas.co.uk/tea-and-coffee-selection-boxes/advent-calendar-of-tea

Thanks! Please could you get us people who are far away first so that we might get them in time? :)

Yup I got an email saying that mine was sent today as well. Even with the usual ultra-slow delays at the border it should get to me in plenty if time. :)
