Thankyou for the samples Butiki and Verdant!
I need help! I’ve been in a tea rut and I need to order some new tea. Any suggestions? I’ve been so busy with life that I’ve been neglecting my tea stash and now I hardly have any loose leaf tea anymore. I stopped in Whole Foods yesterday hoping that they would have some but no such luck.
My best advice for a tea rut…is to SPOIL yourself. I indulge in ordering DAVIDs dessert teas or I spend time exploring the highest rated dessert teas on here and just go ahead and treat myself. Or a swap!! That will get you moving again!!
Butiki teas! or steap shoppe! or the next tea place you see that goes on sale lol just to make it random :)
My comment was supposed to be in reply to you, Tea and Trees but Steepster ate it a few times, so sorry about the thread-missing.
LOL you have a couple of teas from Whispering Pines on your shopping list. I’ve never ordered from them, but was looking at their site last night, and have also put some on my want list. That could be a fun place to start. As Hallieod mentioned, New Mexico Tea also has an extensive list of what I think look like fun tea. If you are looking for more straight teas, you can’t go wrong with Verdant. Hope you find something you like.
Tea and trees, because I saw that Dexter said you had Whispering Pines on your shopping list, I checked your list. BUY, go quickly…. no run & buy Sleeping Bear blend. Do it, do it NOW!!
You guys are brilliant, I have completely forgotten about the shopping list! The last Sleeping Bear blend that I bought lost its flavor quite quickly. I also bought 4 oz of the Blackmint Blend and after only a few weeks in my cupboard, the flavor was almost completely gone.
How were you storing them?
Mine held flavour for a long time. I also really love campfire blend…. num num num
I ran out of tins so I was just storing them in the bag they came in. The first order of tea I got from him lasted a long time but I was so disappointed by that last order!
Thank you friends, I ended up ordering Good Morning Sunshine and The Killer’s Vanilla from Butiki!
Fun question! Virtual shopping won’t add to anyone else’s cupboards. :)
As well as what’s been suggested, Pure Aroma Teas is having a sale of 25% off all black teas for the next few days. I’ve really liked all the black teas I’ve tried from them so far and their shipping is very reasonable. http://purearomatea.com/2-special-offers
Also, a new friend on the Tea Buying Hiatus Support Group (ah, the irony) added a few teas from the New Mexico Tea Co that sounded really good and now I want ALL the teas from there (in ALL the TINS). http://www.nmteaco.com/
Woo! Big box of samples from Teavivre! So glad I went home for lunch and was there to sign for it :D
Totally received my swaps from cavocorax (which i suppose is semi also from Joon!) and fiddling today! so exciting!
seriously, i’m totally doing a happy dance all week for all my swap partners!
My second Della Terra order came in today. My mail lady was kind enough to bring it to the door so it wouldn’t get wet sitting outside since she knew it was tea.
