I’m enjoying this unusual tea this morning. Very piney and some exotic spice floating around…Sweetness building with each steep. Very enjoyable :)

I’m drinking this delicious one today. I am almost out of it but looking forward to opening the summer harvest very soon :)

I had another avocado smoothie for breakfast with 1/2 tsp of this. Breakfast of champions? :)

That sounds amazing.


I think it’s my new favorite!

I got a free sample of this tea with my recent Yunomi.us order. MAN I love me some Japanese greens. This is very tasty Shincha :)

Made a hot latte out of this for breakfast with milk and maple syrup. Next time I will brew it up twice as strong as it is a little weak. Really going to be excellent when I get it right though!

I got this sachet from BrewTEAlly Sweet :)

Not a bad little bagged jasmine! Very much like the kind they serve at good Chinese restaurants. Always welcome in my tea stash ;)

YUM! Thanks for this sample with my most recent order, Stacy! It IS very similar to the Mi Xian Black, but a little bit less floral and a little more rich and malty tasting. I am really enjoying this today. Happy Friday everyone!


Oooooh, as it cools I’m getting the powdered sugar/funnel cake flavor. YUM!!!!

Today I am drinking the nest shaped tuocha! There was only one in my bag, most of them were the little rectangular cubes. It is even smoother than the cube! I really need to get my hands on some high quality puerh in the near future. I wish Mandala had a small sampling pack or something!


you can buy “sample”/small sizes from garrett – i ordered a few from him to try recently. I highly recommend trying special dark and noble mark…you can get the same tea that they pressed to make their phatty cake too if you want a sense of whether you’d like that one too…oh just place an order! haha i’ve only been able to place one order with garret and it’s all so delicious!


Can you buy less than a full ounce for sampling? When I look on the website that is the smallest quantity I see…I really would prefer a half ounce or less for sampling purposes!

Graphic artist, printmaker, lover of tea.

I love pretty much every type of tea camellia sinensis can produce. I like herbal teas sometimes but I can’t stand rooibos. I’m recently becoming a puerh addict.

Butiki, Verdant, Mandala, TeaVivre, Yunnan Sourcing, TeaUrchin, White2Tea and Den’s are my favorite online retailers so far.
