Once in a while they have buy 2 mugs for $30. Seems like that would be a good way to help those who are undecided.

I came home with a beautiful elephant mug, which I love so much. I bought it today cuz they were going fast, I’ll pick up the other five over the next week. (please god don’t let the summer stuff be my style or I am so screwed.)

Chizakura said

But a huge variety to drink from? :D

Cavocorax said

Hahah. That’s an issue! I think I’ll snag the elephant, and then see what summer has to offer. (At least stagger it). The upside is that I can offer friends tons of tea when they come to visit and everyone can have their own cup, instead of using a teapot.

I am doing the same, I got the purple timolino, and I still really want the peacock mug. And the teapot/cups. I am going to wait until my birthday, and HOPEFULLY the peacock won’t sell out.

The pom tango looks delicious. I like both those fruits.

I have been agonizing over the fact that I cannot afford one of the new mugs right now, and I realized… my birthday is coming up! Now to decide whether I like the blue or clear peacock one more.

Although it is not my birthday, I am agonizing over the same decision!

Chizakura said

I say go for the clear. The blue is nice, except for the YELLOW!!!!!!!! on the inside. xD; Don’t get me wrong, I like yellow, but I’m not a big fan of random YELLLOOOOOWWWW!!!!!! on an otherwise classy mug.

Alphakitty said

I am leaning towards the clear one, it’s just so classy! And my mom is in love with the elephant cup, the whole line is just gorgeous.

I have a clear mug already (sadly without paisley) and I prefer it to my coloured one. The lid is better for the infuser and seeing the tea colour is lovely!

Dinosara said

Wish I still lived near a DavidsTea to pick up a clear peacock one! Maybe I can get one when I next go to Chicago…

I totally want the peacock mug as well (the white one). It looks so beautiful. Hopefully I can stop by before I go to the coffee and tea festival. Does anyone know their store hours?

Alphakitty said

The ones in NY are open quite late, I believe till 10? Might be till 11 in the west village.

Thanks, Alphakitty.

I picked up the elephant perfect tea mug and the purple timolino today! Yay! I also got small amounts of copabanana and coconut oolong to try. Ooh, and they were sampling Pom tango, and it was pretty good. :)

How is the coconut oolong?

Chizakura said

It tastes like toasted coconut :)

Ugh, want! Mustn’t buy more tea!

Tealizzy said

Yes! I tasted coconut oolong yesterday, and it is a very powerful coconut flavor. Since I haven’t really had a straight oolong, now I feel the need to try one. I liked this one though!

Yay yay! :D I managed to convince my sister to take me out to DavidsTea. :) Came home with the elephant mug, and purchased 50g of the coconut oolong (that was also what I had there to drink) and grabbed 20g of the Copabanana. Wish I’d noticed prior that there were artificial ingredients in those two. U_U (I try to dodge the chemicals as much as possible. Ah well, I’ll still drink them) I also grabbed 100g of Organic Cream of Earl Grey, which despite my earlier tasting note, has become a cupboard staple. xD

I also smelled nearly every tea in there, almost went in to purchase another cup of tea, and very nearly purchased the Paisley mug with plans of purchasing it next time I’m there. cough

Guys don’t feel bad about all the mugs, I had seven friends over last night and was able to give everyone their own type of tea to try :) I could have used one more mug though, which justifies me getting one from this collection :)

Chizakura said

My problem though is that I already have a load of mugs to begin with. ^^; Now I’ve discovered a new type of mug (infuser mugs :D) and now I want that many more. If I was living on my own it’d be no problem, but I get … a look everytime I buy a new one.

So I just noticed today, I can’t find any of the spring collection teas online, except for Daydreamer. I messaged DAVIDsTEA on facebook to see if I get a reply about them returning…I love Honeydew Mate and don’t want to have to hoard my bag of it! :(

Kittenna said

They’re gone, afaik. You now have to stock up on the teas from a seasonal collection, because they’re gone once the new one comes out (or, once they sell out after the new collection is out). And no guarantees they’ll ever come back :( I’d offer you my Honeydew Mate, but sadly I have only about 3/4 of a teaspoon left. Not even worth it.

Uniquity said

It always used to be like that but then they started the online only for seasonal teas. Did they give up on that already?

MissLena said

:( no I don’t see them under online exclusive either, they must be gone for good. Luckily I have almost 100 g of the Honeydew mate, but it still makes me sad. Good to know they discontinue them right away at least, I was not happy that there was no advance warning of STOCK UP ON ME NOW for the collection, I will snag them early next time :)

Kittenna said

Yes, they’ve given up on the online-only for seasonal teas. It sucks, but I guess it kind of makes sense… but some additional warning would be nice.

I also know David’s under sourced the spring collection so they were sold out of Pom tango and coconut oolong a few weeks before the summer collection was supposed to come out, so they released it early.
