Since I had a slightly rough evening and broke the saucer of my gaiwan, I decided to bite the bullet and order a bunch of tea..a BUNCH. Eek. Hopefully I like them a lot haha, although I already have a few people in mind to split with, and one who is anxious to try them haha!

Andrews & Dunham Damn Fine Tea
Adventure Pack (contains Mount Gray, Double Knit Blend, and Tiger Assam)

4.4 oz x 3 = 13.2 oz of tea

(now I go hide)

Great, now I want that. I have never had A&D but I love their tins and marketing. I just don’t tend to be super interested in the blends. Must resist

Sil select said

uniquity – tiger assam….you know you want it. it has a tiger on the tin! and it’s delicious! just ask terri and cavo! (and soon misslena)

Uniquity said

I actually don’t really like assams. Or earl greys. This makes it easier to resist but this little voice seems to suggest that maybe that is different now, hah!

Sil select said

what you do is swap with one of us to TRY them…which means you can totally wait until the next sale…since there will be one.

Haha yeah I haven’t had too many assams or Earl greys myself, but I couldn’t resist the free shipping, and I have been craving strong teas lately it seems, and yes, I saw the little tiger in the pictures and was like YES. I WANT IT.

I can’t wait to try them :D I will try to not be a tea enabler here..but it is a pretty awesome deal.

Another order. /hangs head/ I was doing so well with no orders for a few months and now here’s two orders in under a week, with likely 2 more in the near future from other companies. Lol.

Anyway, I took advantage of the Tazo sale to try some new stuff. Though I’m kicking myself ‘cause I waited too long (thinking too much) about the order and the infuser basket went out of stock. /sigh/ Hopefully I’ll find one for that cheap again.

Phoenix Mountain 2oz
Jasmine Yin Hao 2oz
Organic Vanilla Apricot Crème 1.4oz
Black Dragon Pearls 4oz
Peach Cobbler 4oz

Sub Total: $84.60
Order Discount: -$42.32
Coupon discount: -$4.23 (Tazo10)
Tax: $0.70
Shipping Costs: $4.95
Payment Total: $43.70

I may have gone a bit overboard in hindsight. But I like the dragon pearls I have from another company and as far as I can tell, this is a crazy deal on them. I just hope they don’t suck. Lol. And I love peach so I have high hopes for the cobbler.

Sil select said

not sure what type of infuser basket it is but upton often has their finums on sale for the cheapest prices we’ve seen around…

I’ll definitely have to check that out then. If I remember correctly it was a steel infuser like the ones that come in the DavidsTea perfect mugs.

Edit – The one at Upton isn’t the same one that Tazo had. That one was all metal. But thanks for the suggestion Sil. ^^

Dinosara said

Haha you are the queen of rationalizing. Congrats on your birthday order! :)

Sil select said

Dinosara – i don’t know WHAT you mean :) and hey..i’m almost at 215! from 227! at the start of today…

Cavocorax said

I think we’re learning to rationalize from you as well! Glad you ordered your birthday order!

Also I’m jealous of those sipdowns! I haven’t been home long enough today!

Sil select said

Cavo – i have to pee every two minutes lol but i’m having fun wit things at least :) I’ll be away from tea and up all night (6pm-6am) so that’s how i’m justifying loading myself up with delicious tea!

Dinosara said

Haha your progress is certainly impressive. At least a lot of your stash seems to be 1-2 cup samples!

Sil select said

well they’re 2-4 cup samples for a lot of them..but that’s really 1-2 cup samples in my world. i have big mugs lol

Dexter said

Wow that looks like an awesome order. :)) Such restraint to wait until a couple of days after your birthday.

graceatblb said

I know! I was rather proud I lasted this long :) I’m pretty bad when it comes to Mandala self control.

Uniquity said

ZOMG, I want that much tea. Actually, I probably have way more than that. What I mean is that I want that much NEW tea. Enjoy!!

Sil select said

Yay for birthday orders! Sounds like a good one grace :)

graceatblb said

Birthday orders make aging worth it. I do, however, regret that I’m ordered out until I run out of something.

Tea goes better with birthday goodies too.

Oops. Well. It was only $11 something and four free samples.

I ordered this Sansa Stark blend:
And then I had the red wedding sample, the konami sample, an apple black sample for some reason, and added green rooibos citron as my post this to Facebook tea.

Someone probly gifted you a free sample of the apple black. I have a peach oolong sitting in my cart for my soon to be new order. XD

momo said

it’s from adagio apparently, I only have two friends on there who would even maybe look at my page, so I searched my email and they added it to my cart on May 28. I don’t remember seeing this email AT ALL but I’ll take it!

Interesting. And free tea is always awesome. ^^

momo said

Oh yeah. I think if you don’t order from them after a certain amount of time they decide to gift you random samples. I got a peach one this way too. Of course, every time there’s one in my cart I then order, so they know what’s up.

Oh geeze, I bought a yixing pot. I almost got a gaiwan too.

A headache at that, they had the yixing both on yunnansourcing’s us and china site, but the gaiwan on the china site. I number crunched to figure which would be cheaper with faster shipping without killing me or waiting 70 day shipping.

Ended up with $56 after shipping (USPS parcel).

and I’ll wait to buy the gaiwan I want on the other yunnansourcing site.

It’s cute!

Nice. I wish the china site’s shipping wasn’t so awful. There’s a few gaiwan there (specifically a travel set with lotus on it) I wanted to get, but the shipping I think was almost double what the actual items would cost. Even if I was just getting the travel set. /sigh/
But the one you got is definitely a cute little teapot. What’re you planning on brewing in it?

Either a sheng pu’er or oolong. Now I will have two yixing pots, I have more options, as I’m undecided what to do with my current pot!

Ugg at the china site.. I thought buying more would save shipping but the price goes up with each item! it was $27 to ship my teapot and gaiwan, or wait 70 days for $17 shipping. I’m not sure which one is more ugly of an option. I wish the US site would have more items for sale so we save time and shipping.

Yeah. Well, here’s to crossing our fingers that they do start getting more stuff on the us site. Like what they carry on their china site. Lol.

Hey, I’ve got the same pot :)
