Someone control me! I just made another order, from 52 teas. I couldnt resist the tea of the week.
and then i added
-pink lemonade iced tea.
yikes but yay!
An expensive order for me…
Gold Thread Reserve 2 oz
Monkey Picked Tieguanyin 4 oz
and a sample of Heritage Aijiao from Red Blossom Tea Company.
While I stare at the bags, I think I’ll drink the 2008 Puerh from the same company that I brewed as it arrived.
YESSS! YESSS! Crap, I really don’t need more tea, I have like 20 I haven’t opened yet but whatever. It’s pu’er, it’ll get better with age.
Wait a minute, I really do need more tea. Freaking phatty cake 2 and two other awesomely rated pu’er!
Phatty Cake II: The Sequel
Special Dark – 2006 Loose Ripe Pu’er (1 ounce)
Mandala Noble Mark Ripe Cake – 2012 (1 ounce for now)
You will be mine, Phatty Cake II! MUHAHAHAHAHAHA!
Great choices!!! Noble Mark is AMAZING!!! Special Dark is just that “special”. I haven’t tried Phatty Cake II – but I have a sample of it. That might have to be my tea of choice tonight!!! Trying really hard not to place another Mandala order….. I love their stuff. Rumor has it they are getting more teaware in. I’m trying to wait until that is up on the website then make a decision.
I’m sure you will enjoy your choices. :))
I’ve been holding out for Phatty Cake 2 and I really wanted to dry noble mark and special dark for awhile, so I’m very pumped!
Oh man, more teaware? I almost bought some with this order but held off for now. I probably won’t be able to hold off next time!
On 10Aug Garret wrote on their facebook page that they have gotten in more teaware, some of which will be “newly online next week”. Hoping for some fun and interesting pieces. I need teaware more than tea, but I don’t think it’s possible to NOT order tea if placing a Mandala order.
UGGG No buy! No Buys after this, OMG!

great deal, I needed more Blushing Geisha, but uggg, I have so much tea!
Sounds like a great excuse for a party! Maybe a big tea tasting party or summer garden // iced tea get together. If you gathered together a group of friends, I’m sure they’d be happy to help you out with favorites from your stash and new arrivals (especially if everyone brings a baked good or a salad). ;)
citrus sunshine oolong! Blushing Geisha!! Choco-Honeyberry!!! AHHHHH I want to order! If you order a tin through them, do they send a label for the tea like DAVIDsTEA?
Lily: haha, with all the pu’er I ordered yesterday, we just need tea to make it an energetic, rocking party!
Brewteally Sweet: Not sure, I never ordered their tins. They do look sexy and I’ve been tempted.
Go for it, Awkward Soul! Nobody ever said tea always has to be polite flowers and mellow music. We’ve thrown some great tea-cocktail parties here at the Tea House recently: candles, live music, bar snacks, gongfu tea and crazy tea and herbal elixirs up at the bar. :D
Last day for the Laoshan tea sale at Verdant! I ordered some-
Laoshan Bilochun green
and samples of
sweet cinnamon puerh
silver buds yabao
YAY! I can’t wait to compare the bilochun to the regular green, and also taste the summer harvest for the first time (the autumn is my favorite so far though, I think!)
Great order (and good timing!)! I almost forgot that it was Thursday already, and almost time for the Tea Tour Sale to move on to Dragonwell and Mrs. Li.
Can’t wait to see what you think of the Summer harvest and the Bilochun! I love tasting the He Family’s teas back to back. It’s amazing to see the similarities that come from terroir, but just as fun to see the differences that come from oxidization, leaf shape, hand-curling vs flat pressed…
nice order:) I ordered a few days ago the sweet cinnamon pu’er, vanilla citrus spice, and the summer harvest Laoshan green also!!!
I did add the Laoshan roasted oolong along with golden fleece as well ha ha. I see you ordered the silver buds:) I hope you get well soon so you can taste all of these!
Your order sounds nice too! I’ve already tried the Laoshan Roasted Oolong already and the Golden Fleece too high fives
Can’t really go wrong with Verdant ;)
I have found that to be so true! ha ha! I am so excited for both of those teas the most!
Wish I had ordered a few samples of the blends, the more I keep seeing about them the better they’re sounding haha.
Can’t wait for my Laoshans :)
Oh my goodness, I’m such an idiot. XD I was looking out for the Laoshan sale but I missed it by like two weeks. Good job me.
Ordered from Verdant even though i have 2oz of Laoshan Black currently in my cupboard at the moment. Picked up another 4oz and a couple of samples!
It’s one of my favourite black straight teas. It’s malty with cocoa notes. It’s my friend in shitty situations. It’s not a tea for everyone, but it IS a tea for me :)
I was really worried that my beloved Ceylon Star From DavidsTea was going to be discontinued, since it was 48% off with other web special teas, that looked like they weren’t that popular, so I went for it! 250 grams! That’s a lot of tea! But I probably could drink that tea every morning, I like it so much. I also ordered another cute white elephant perfect mug at 40% off, since I love the one I have and thought it would be perfect for tea for two, or leaving one at the office and one at home. I also picked up two purple tins, since the web special teas don’t come with one. :)
I bought 75g of some really nice green tea from Seven Cups. Green tea does not stay fresh for very long….
Made an unexpected order today since I found out Della Terra is discontinuing Apricot Carousel. So bummed because it’s the only tea I’ve found with that combination of fruits that didn’t also include mango (which I’m horribly allergic to) or coconut (which I’ve started to really hate in tea). I couldn’t resist buying some up.
Apricot Carousel 2oz & 1oz
Try Me Pack – Cafe Vanilla, Pineapple Upside Down Cake, Wonders of Kashmir, Caramel Creme, & The Perfect Pear
The 4oz Apricot Carousel was already sold out and there was only one 2oz so I had to get creative. Lol. I hope they don’t end up emailing me to tell me that someone got to the 2oz & 1oz packs before me.
And I figure that because lately I rarely make repeat orders to companies (unless I adore something) because there are so many new places I always want to try first, I figured I might as well get a try-me pack again.
I hadn’t ordered any tea for a while, but I just broke that hiatus with a pretty tall order from Yunnan Sourcing:
-2011 YS “Autumn Xi Bang” raw cake 400g
-2013 YS “Ye Sheng Cha” Wild tree purple tea of Dehong 500g
-2011 YS Jing Gu Mini cake 100g
-2013 YS “Wu Liang Ye Sheng” sample

-Wu Yi Shan Rock Tea “Classic Rou Gui” Oolong 100g
-Jing Gu “White Pekoe Silver Needles” White Tea 100g
-Feng Qing “Ye Sheng Hong Cha” Wild Tree Purple Var. Black tea 50g
Used the YZY10 voucher and loyalty points
I’m pretty sure I overdid it, but I really can’t wait! :)
