Lupicia Grab Bags

The $100 bag appears sold out on the website. Wonder if the tea accessory is more substantial with the pricier bag. I am expecting a tote bag and and really hoping I don’t get a metal tea ball.

Seems more and more likely I won’t get a tea accessory of any kind at all. Update: I didn’t.

I was wondering if anyone knows what’s inside $60 bag?

If I’m not mistaken, its random.

ToiToi select said

Oh, I might be wrong but I think it’s not random – each bags contain certain stuffs. (I remember asking person at lupicia before) I see someone posted what’s inside the $30 bag but not $60 one so was wondering if anyone picked $60 from store or something :)

momo said

Wow if it’s not actually random that sucks, I got a $30 one for myself and then one to split with a friend. It makes it sound like it’s just pre-selected in the sense that you can’t pick what it is. Meh. I’m still gonna hope for random.

Alphakitty said

I’m pretty sure they are random, the ones from 2012 contained different things. The entire point of a grab bag is that it’s random, plus they’d blow through their stock pretty fast if all the bags were the same

momo said

Yeah I was gonna say also that makes no sense to make every bag the same based on that alone.

Kittenna said

momo – I hope the $30 for yourself was the one I ordered!! :P

momo said

lol yes, it was later on that when I told a friend about it she wanted one but not the entire thing so I figured I’d have it sent to her and we’d deal with it sometime.

you know it’s bad when i’m like hmmmm maybe i should pick up a second bag.. sigh

I know there were people on my Knitting Community that ordered doubles of the $30 bag from last year. They ended up with duplicates of everything.

Still curious if anyone picked up the 60$ bag and what was in it, or if anyone else got a 30$ with different things from awkward soul :)

I think duplicates is a bad idea! At least from a merchandizing stand point. If I were going to offer a sale like this I would want every bag to be slightly different to encourage people buying more than one!

Kittenna said

I think that’s the reason for different sizes though. So my logic was that if Sil & I picked up a $60 bag, we’d have no duplicates, whereas if we each got a $30 bag, there’s be more chance that we’d end up with the same teas. That said, I don’t think all bags of the same price point should be identical…

My shipping notice said I’ll receive my $30 bag tomorrow! Can’t wait to see what’s inside :)

I’m in the bay area and it shipped from Oakland, superfast!

Been excited for these ever since I got the newsletter! Just got the $60 bag even though I’m bln the edge of broke. Can’t wait to go through it :D Think it’ll include some of the newer/seasonal teas?

My $30 bag arrived today! Here’s what I received:

Special Tin of looseleaf Momoko
Looseleaf 50g:
Matcha Kirara Rice Tea
Piccolo
Grapefruit Green
Pineapple Oolong
Afternoon Tea

10 tea bag packet:
Paradise Green
Momo (peach)

And a tea infuser

Looks like $62.50 worth of product! Can’t wait to try some of these!

Azzrian said

Thats nice! So it seems based on this post below seen on page three by another steepster that the bags are not all the same:
Awkward Soul said 2 days ago
I was going to order for sure, but I dislike Lupicia’s shipping costs / all other teas I wanted are out of stock.

My husband was happy to take me to the lupicia about 20 minutes away, woooot!

No tea ware, but lots of good stuff, got the $30 bag

Momoko
Good Morning
Champagne rose
Fantasy
matcha kirara rice
rooibos mediterranee
darjeeling, second flush
grapefruit green
strawberry vanilla

I already have strawberry vanilla, but oh well, now I have more!

momo said

There’s still the possibility that all the online bags and in store bags are different though.

Azzrian said

Good Point!

Jules1 select said

OK, these look fantastic! I bought one online and can’t wait…absolutely LOVE most of those. I’ve been wanting to try Fantasy and Kirara too. I really hope mine is like this!

Hmm, I didn’t get a shipping notice yet. Has anyone else ordered, but not received a shipping notice? And on another note, can you request black tea or green tea, or is it a mix?

Azzrian said

Its a mix you can’t make requests. I got my shipping notice today just about an hour ago.

Jules1 select said

I ordered on Wednesday morning and haven’t received a shipping notice, just the order confirmation.

Saw a retweet from lupicia of someone’s happy bag, said it was a “large” so i’m guessing the $60 from the number of teas.

Alphakitty said

If the bags are pre-set I’d be SO happy if that was what I got—I’m hoping for the momo oolong and mango.

Tamm said

Wow, that is an amazing bag of goodies! If I didn’t need to save my money I’d be totally on this!

Sil select said

oooh here’s hoping!

I caved! Went by the Lupicia store in SF today and I couldn’t resist a $30 bag.

The list:
Momoko (in a tin)
Champagne Rose
Caramel and Rum (Rayn will be very happy about this)
Matcha Kirara Rice Tea
Fantasy
Darjeeling Second Flush
Decaf Sakurambo
Kotobuki

Can’t wait to hear what is in yours because I am seriously tempted to go get another! Did they have quite a few left?

Claire said

They had about 5 left of the $30 bags and at least 6 of the $60. I told myself I wasn’t going to get one but well – it’s Lupicia, can’t go wrong!

Oh, good to know! Those all sound good too and sounds like the ones in the stores aren’t all the same.
