Bluebird Tea Co. - New on here (free samples)
Forgot to say… Discount mentioned previously still works, just enter the code ‘steepster’ on check out for a discount on all our teas.
my samples are send out today i noticed in my mail, going to test it soon. Got some samples from thé de paris first tough
received them like i mentioned above, but a quick question. The sample bags are enough for one time brewing or is it to mutch for one go and i can split it over 2 different tastings. I really always get confused with small sized bags usually i just aim my spoon in the bag and go go :)
They are meant as single cup samples really. But they have a fair bit in so you could probably stretch them over 2… We put enough in so that even if you use a big mug it should still taste good.
So depends how strong you like it really!
will experiment a bit, got alot off big and small tea pots to brew in. Have to say i like all those fruit blends. Might be just what i was looking for to mix with my classic tea’s from jing and canton
Rhubarb tea might be interesting to brew and try. I am a tea bag liker. Good luck and thanks!
I’m just about to place an order :) It’s really nice to see innovative loose leaf tea companies starting up in the UK — we’ve been deprived for too long. Really lovely looking website, and great sounding teas. Can’t wait to try some!
Ok as soon as I saw the little sticker in the box I had to do this: https://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash3/543993_4812123669986_1020844754_n.jpg
Thank you! He knows it too, that’s his usual picture face, I think of it as the smug “yeah I know I’m a pretty bird” look haha.
Hopefully everyone is enjoying the samples. I’m enjoying reading the reviews!
We now have a range of sample packs for those of you who just can’t decide which you want to try! http://www.bluebirdteaco.com/sample-packs/
That’s a great idea! I love the gift option too! I’m still waiting for my samples but I expect it any day now…
if the regular size is roughly 65g (i think i recall that being the case) does that mean the sample packs have about 30g in them?
Guess the real question is “what is the weight of each tea in the sample pack” :)
We pack about 35 cups in to our regular packs. These are half size so will have about 16-18 cups in them.
Because we try to work by cups you get, the weight varies across the blends. But you’re right, 65g is fairly standard across them.
Sounds complicated for people used to buying loose tea but as lots of our customers are new to it, we find this way a bit simpler for them!
Not that complicated :) I’m fine with either but jsut wanted to get a sense of how much was in them and make sure i was understanding it correctly. Once i get my samples, i suspect i’ll be taking advantage of this. love sampler packs!
Awesome. Hope they arrive soon! Seems to have been a massive variance with how long they all took to get out there!
Oh no. Mine are in the country but with someone else. We had them sent to one person to help you save on shipping etc. so this is all just the wait to meet with people :)
Oh man. Yes Sil, I’m seeing an order of these sample packs in our future. Out of 6? samples I’ve tried so far (I have a seventh thanks to IB), I’m pretty sure I enjoyed 4, want to give a 5th a second shot, and only disliked one (and that was definitely a personal preference thing). So yeah. :D
I was disappointed not to hit 100% but I’m guessing from the smiley face that isn’t a bad score?
Oh, it’s excellent! I have been pleasantly surprised :) There have been multiple times when I’ve ordered from a tea company and not enjoyed as many teas! I really liked Love Potion… I think I’ll be needing more of that.
