I passed by Kusmi Teas on a different route home from work and I couldn’t resst pickng up the Russian Teas Sampler.
Bouquet of Flowers
Order from http://instant-the.com … it’s a French company that doesn’t ship outside Europe but does sell 50g bags of Dammann teas (instead of their obligatory 100g). Got this sent to my hotel in Paris (free shipping over €39), so I’m hoping it arrives ok! All of these teas are Dammann Frères teas.

Strawberry Cream (Black)- 50g
O’Sullivan’s Favourite – 50g

Another Mandala Order:
1 cake of Phatty Cake Sequel
2 oz of Black Gold
2 oz of Alishan Taiwanese Oolong
I had to! I went onto Verdant to just “look” and I added a few teas to my cart and let them sit there ALL day… and yes I just bought them. I had to restock my Eight Treasures Yabao…for my summer iced tea extravaganza…so….
1oz.Eight Treasures Yabao
1oz.Ginger Sage Winter Spa Blend
1oz.Bergamot Rose Laoshan Black
For a grand total of $22.95
I also splurged and ordered from Bluebird Tea Co. For the very first time.
65 grams (roughly 2.3 oz) Enchanted Narnia
80 grams (roughly 2.8 oz) Vicky’s Sponge Cake
Grand total of $19.98
I really was tempted to get Nearly Nirvana, All Things Nice, Monkey Chops, and Retro Ted… but I had to set some limits ha ha.
Not too bad but definitely more than I wanted to spend. But I can’t wait!
I saw Verdant had the Imperial Breakfast Summer Blend back, so an order was absolutely necessary! :) I also really have been wanting to try the Yu Lu Yan Cha Black Tea. I’ve been wavering because I don’t want to get myself hooked on another tea that I simply MUST have…and yet, I ordered a sample. I couldn’t resist.
Imperial Breakfast Summer Blend 1 oz.
Yu Lu Yan Cha Black 7 g.
Laoshan Black Chocolate Genmaicha 4 oz.
Bai Mu Dan White Tea 7g
Glass Test Tube Steeper
I have a serious problem and really need to stop ha ha. I just ordered from bluebird tea co. And verdant yesterday and today… I couldn’t help myself when I saw the 5 for $5 on persimmon tree.
I ended up oredering the 5 for $5 Roobios Sampler and chose:
-Berries ’n Cream
-Roobios Vanilla Chai
I also got a free 1oz tin of white guava
And… I added a few other samples…
-French Vanilla Bean
I swear this is my last order for a while!
Sooo Tea hiatus be damned since the tea spot is having a sale and i’m itching to get larger quantities of a few of the mandala teas i’ve tried before deciding on a cake purchase..not to mention the butiki order that is incoming next week.
From Mandala – small one but with a couple teas i don’t have in the house and wanted to try :)
250 gram Mandala Noble Mark Ripe – 2012
Loose and Luscious Lancang -2007
Special Dark – 2006 Loose Ripe Pu’er
Mandala Four Leaves Ripe Loose Leaf Pu’er
250 gram Mandala Year of the Dragon Ripe Pu’er -2012
Golden Needle Premium
i figure it’s a nice start to the joy from mandala that terri and grace have shared with me :) there are a few (ok a lot) of others i want to try but i don’t really have a good place in the house to store cakes….yet.
Got into trouble at Yunnan Sourcing.
I snagged the gaiwan I wanted VERY BADLY, but since their shipping is pricey, I added a few promising cakes with my order. Thankfully, they have 9% off.
Gaiwan http://yunnansourcing.com/en/gaiwans/1811-ceramic-aqua-gradient-celadon-easy-gaiwan-for-gong-fu-tea-brewing-150ml.html lookit this gaiwan! Lovely!
2012 Yunnan Sourcing “Dragon of Jing Mai” Ripe Pu-erh tea mini cake
2012 Yunnan Sourcing “Qiu Yun” Wild Arbor Raw Pu-erh tea of Yi Wu mountain
I got in trouble at Mandala yesterday. NOT ALLOWED to look at Yunnan Sourcing. :((
That gaiwan is beautiful.
I don’t even like puerh a whole lot yet but I want ALL THE CAKES. The logic is that puerh changes over time so even if I don’t like it now, I will like it eventually!
I’m getting sucked into pu’er cakes because the shelf life is different – I don’t have to worry about drinking it in a year (or less) and the tea gets better with age! Perfect excuse to buy more!
I couldn’t resist The Persimmon Tree:
