Not sure if this has been asked yet, but does anyone know how much tea will be in each tin?

Sare said

One cup

cuppaT said

…as in “enough for one cup of tea”.

I was thinking the same thing but I was hoping it was going to be more than one cup. $30 seems a lot for one cup on each tin. I know you get the tins but I may have to rethink this one

Cedes said

Same I looked at a video as well last year was only 1.5 tsp so enough for one cup…… hum I now I dont know either!

DaisyChubb said

Last year I had enough for 2 cups with my perfect tsp – most teas I had over 2 tsp of tea (depends on the size of the leaves of course). Just wanted to throw that in there :)
I got way more tea in those than last year’s 52teas sampler for the same price (I know there’s supposed to be more tea this year but still not worth the price for me haha), I found it was not a bad deal to try lots of teas I hadn’t tried before anyways! This year I’ve tried them all so i won’t do either of the countdowns this year, but if you’re new to a lot of the teas it’s a fun way to try them :)

the weight of the tea in total means that it must be close to 10g each. generally 50g will give you about 20 cups of tea, so like Daisy said, 2cups each.

I confirmed with DT that you should be able to get at least 2 cups from each one.

I ended up not getting the calender even though i wanted it.. IDk $30 out of my Christmas present for 24 cups of one time tea just didn’t seam like something i wanted to do Specially since i have tried most of the flavors. so i got myself a tea travel mug which i need :)

I agree. I haven’t fully made up my mind yet but I think I am going to pass and order $30.00 of other items

If there was more in each tin it would be worth it for me as I’m interested in about half of the flavors, but one cup isn’t really enough to decide how I rate a tea and how quickly I want to buy some more. I’ll just have to try Cookie Dough and the rest of the winter collection instead. :P

I’m thinking of passing on it as well. I like surprises, but then they went and said what was going to be in there! And I don’t really think it’s worth the money…I initially tried to order and the website flipped out on me. Maybe it’s a sign.

sounds like…. I have been looking for other things to buy… still in need of a travel mug!

Kittenna said

What?! They said what teas are in there?! That’s so stupid.

Dustin said

The website was fussy for me today too. I filled in all my info, pressed “place your order” and got a blank screen. It was weird and I wasn’t sure my order went through until I checked my email and saw a confirmation notice.

I also think that I will pass. The temptation might have been greater had they kept it a secret ;)

It doesn’t help that I have a ton of tea already so it’s even harder to justify. Plus, it’s not a lot of tea AND when it’s done I’ll have these little tins leftover that I won’t really know what to do with.

cuppaT said

I agree with Rachel (especially since I sat up until 3 a.m. this morning trying in vain to get the site to load properly!). And if those little “tins” are the kind I think they are, the see-thru lids are very thin plastic that has a tendency to come loose and drop down into the tea; definitely not air-tight. I guess I’ll just be happy with 52 Teas’ 12 Teas of Christmas. Ho, ho, ho!

Calla said

I wanna get the little tins for future use :) :P

I knew they’d list the flavors, they were all listed last year too, but they did it alphabetically so you don’t really know what the order is. But overall I’d already tried so many of them, and the ones in there I haven’t had are ones I don’t really even want. It’s actually really disappointing that it doesn’t even have all of the holiday teas in it.

I do want the winter tree noble perfect mug but it is still going to an error page with their new site. Blahhhh.

Babble said

I bet Detox tea is the tea for Dec 26 ;)

Cedes said

I cant even get on the site yet! Its been saying its down all day for me….

momo said

Cedes, try a hard refresh. If you’re using Windows I believe it’s shift + F5, and on a Mac shift + command + R. It got it working for me earlier.

Babble said

It’s working for me, but it’s slow and there’s little issues here and there..

Cedes said

Oh yay!!! Thanks momo! ohhhh new cups!

Sare said

yea seamed a little missed up to me at 8 am eastern time too.. IT changed my state i live in back to Al and also gave me free shipping… IM not complaining about free shipping on a order less then 50 but Im a little worried about the State, I contacted them yesterday and the guy said he would call back once it was changed in IT and … I have not herd anything…

hmmmm now you are all making me question possibly getting this. But oh the fun of doing a countdown.
However I could probably get like 50g of 4 teas for the price of this one item.
hmmmm…. well I have till tomorrow to decide.

I also decided to pass on the calendar. I need to try a tea a couple times before I will know if I like it. And I have yet to master the art of re-steeping.

Babble said

Another good point. 1 cup is just too small. The 52teas collection will at least have enough tea so that you can remake it if you like it, remake it if you didn’t brew it right the first time, experiment with the tea, OR share it with someone else.

Cedes said

Yeah I was looking at one. Ive only tried a couple 52 teas so I will probably go with that one. Hopefully I like them but dont fall in love, since I cant purchase more :)

Uniquity said

I understand that the 52Teas samples will be bigger this year (I found them very small last year – one or maybe two cups of each). Should give you a little leeway. : )

Kittenna said

I’m so confused, did they change the size of the tins this year?

I had the same thoughts, too small, and pricey, etc. But I caved and got it as an early bday gift for myself. This is my first time getting it, so I thought why not! I’m looking forward to counting down until Christmas in style. Although, not sure if I’ll be able to keep myself from drinking only one at a time!!

The site is totally bogging down for me now since last nights update. Thinking of contacting them but will wait to see if it changes in a day or two. I miss the old site that was fast! I can’t even see a button to add the calendar to my cart.

Babble said

Another thing I don’t like about the site is that you can’t highlight anything since everything is an image.
