Bluebird Tea Co. have free shipping today if you use the code #SBS. Never ordered from them before, but I had a little spare in my paypal account and it was free shipping, so these are now on their way to me :) –
1 x Earl Grey Crème
1 x Love Potion
1 x Vicky’s Sponge Cake
1 x Rhubarb + Custard
VERY fast to get it out to me as well – ordered this afternoon, shipped this afternoon.
Just ordered my “reviewers special” large bag of Caramel Matchaccino from Red Leaf, as well as a large bag of the “special blend”. Two large bags of matchaccino for $5? Yes please.
Bought this little jingdezhen teapot on ebay for £1. Yay!
Bad me..bad me…
It looks like Verdant has discontinued its reserve club, and now a bunch of the teas are up for sale for anyone to buy! Gasp…away goes the willpower…I picked the two that appealed to me the most, although I wanted two others as well:
Mi Lan Xiang Reserve Dancong – 1oz, as dancong teas seem to be my ABSOLUTE FAVORITEEE
Early Spring Fuding White tea – 1 oz, as the description sounds heavenly.
Now, no more tea for ages…like seriously, I can’t get any more. 3 orders on the way to me :( time for some sipdowns! Lol
Haha that was the 5th runner up for me..other two were the jingshan green and the yabao..oh and the jin jun mei lol…sigh, or just, all of them? :D I’m so bad with Verdant, I want to order every tea they ever have lol.
Haha Sil, some of the Qimen is coming your way. Probably just enough to tell you if you need more :)
Oh, man. This is incredibly difficult to resist. D:
Edit: Okay, I seem to have temporarily rationalized my way out of going on a ridiculous shopping spree. Phew. Wallet is safe for now.
Ag – haha, I know what you mean, two teas was all I could rationalize, mostly because Verdant’s Mi lan Xiang black tea is my absolute favorite black tea of all time, and it is discontinued, so I couldn’t pass up the reserve oolong..but originally, my cart was around 90 bucks..haha :P watch out for late night orders, when you are kind of sleepy.. you just do it without really thinking lol.
Sil – you are doing so good with your sipdowns! You can resist! :D
Lena – this is about the only type of sale i have a hard time resisting since once it’s gone, it’s gone…
I know exactly what you mean :( that’s why I order soo many Verdant teas, because they might not be around the next year, or in a few months even!
Ugh, I can’t even get ONE of them right now. weeps for the $19 an ounce tea
Ugh, Verdant got me. The promise of new, exclusive blends was too much. Well, it’s less than half the price of the reserve club, which ended, so I no longer have that monthly expense.
yeah….thinking about this one too. May try a month and have it sent state side to my tea mule and then decide on keeping it after the first month.
Sigh…I will wait a little bit, at least a month before getting this..sooo tempting, especially liking that price!
Ok..so I may have caved and ordered it yesterday when there were only 6 spots left…..I couldn’t resist after seeing the preview on the site, and fall blends are so good too! Gah, well lots of time to finish up other teas before they arrive I guess!
MissLena – There was a preview of the blends they’d be offering? Rats. I must’ve missed it. I was waiting to see what sort of teas they’d have the first month or two before I was going to decide if I’d join or not….Then again, it’s all full now so I guess it doesn’t really matter now anymore anyway. Lol.
I was going to do that too! Yes they posted pictures and the names on their facebook I know for sure and just the pictures I think on their site, yes on the club page they scroll through at the top of the page. The names were Northern Wilds, Master Han’s forest grove, and Campfire Blend – I love the outdoors and woodsy teas, and these just sound perfect! #nowillpower haha
I just subscribed to the new VERDANT BLEND CLUB!!! Stephanie and myself will be starting this month! So exciting and soooooo affordable. YAY.
high fives best idea ever! I wonder if we ever want to order additional teas if they would be willing to throw them in the box to save shipping :)
Thank you so much for your support and excitement!! We’ve been having a ton of fun with the blends for this very first box.
@stephanie – I wish we could! For now, because of the way everything works on the back end, we aren’t able to bundle a la carte orders with subscriptions: there’s just too much risk of something being forgotten or left out!
Can’t wait to send out the first box on the 5th – it will be a lot of fun to see if members have stand-out favorites you want in the permanent collection :)
My pleasure. So excited! Especially after seeing the sneek peak pictures on facebook!
I can’t really explain how this happened, because one minute I was at my desk writing a memo and the next minute I received a confirmation email from the tea merchant confirming my order (French earl grey and biodynamic Darjeeling). It was like I was on autopilot!
Placed an order for some Della Terra Pumpkin teas. I made some for myself today, and decided to order some as a gift for two friends who love tea and love pumpkin flavoring. I think they’ll enjoy!
Gets me every time!
and Katie, your order sounds good. I love knowing I can gift things in the event that I don’t like them.
Butiki order! Wheeeeee! :D
Vanilla Frosted Carrot Cake
Taiwanese Wild Mountain Black
trying really hard to resist for just a bit longer, but likely not going to happen since i really want to try the carrot cake
Ya, I had emailed Stacy about what was coming out, because I was trying to decide whether to wait or not, and when she told me the carrot cake tea was coming out I decided to wait until it was on the website. Been checking it daily!!
I agree with Stephanie I’m so envious! I want all of butikis fall flavors
