I caved!!! I finally ordered some fall teas.
Della terra had the 30% off sale.
here is the damage:
-Chocolate Pumpkin Pie
-The Malt Shop
-Chocolate Almond Coconut
and reorderd my Oh so delicious
-Oatmeal Raisin Cookie.
I have yetto try any of them except for my re order:) I hope they do not disappoint.
I told myself my first order would be with Butiki but My wishlist for them is sooooooo long. Ill have to wait a bit:(
Uggg Please make me stop. I ordered the 3 pack of black plus a dark oolong using the 20.00 off deal from Easy Tea Hard Choice. Have been wanting to try Taiwan Tea Crafts for awhile, this company sounds similar. Will give them a shot, see what it’s like.
Ordered a few samples from Adagio… mostly green and oolong.
Well, Yunnan Sourcing has a 6.5% off sale on everything on their two websites (US and China), so I went in for a number of samplers or small puerh bricks as in:
100 gr brick of 2012 Xue Ju Su Pu ripe puer and Snow Crysanthemum,
100gr cake of 2012 Yi Dian Hong ripe puerh mini,
25 gr sampler of 2011 Hui Run ripe puer tea cake of Bu Lang mountain,
2011 Mang Fei aged mao cha mini raw puerh tea cake,
25 gr sampler of 2011 Man Tang Hong Gong Ting ripe puerh cake,
25 gr sampler of Man Tang Hong number 2 ripe puerh,
2010 Yi Dian Hong ripe puerh mini cake,
2012 Xiaguan Jia Ji Tuo raw puerh,
and 25 gr sampler of Xinghai ripe puerh tea brick of Menghai.
The thread here on Steepster about our daily pu-erh, sheng or shu, has inspired me to try lots of different things, in the process discovering that I have a fondness for older shu (fermented or cooked) puerh, while I patiently wait for my sheng (green) puerh to age.
Ordered the pumpkin toffee dragonwell from 52teas. I just couldn’t help it! It’s pumpkin!!
Everyone was freaking me out that the fall teas would be gone soon from DavidsTea, so I ordered more! I was going to wait until I could stop by the store on a lunch break, but there’s a transit strike, so I might be teleworking for awhile. At least by not going to the store, I won’t be tempted to buy more stuff!!!
I ordered: pumpkin chai, sugar and spice, and mom’s apple pie. :)
Just made my 2nd order from della terra in two weeks. Of course the day after I made my first order they came out with new flavors.
I just ordered an hour ago:
-White Chocolate Coconut Creme
I took advantage of the Zen Tea 20% off sale and bought some 20g samples since I`m a tea newbie:
-Green Tea Coconut
-Green Tea Genmaicha
-Black Tea Strawberry Cream
-Black Tea Earl Grey Cream
-White Tea Toffee Dream
-Oolong Bossa Nova
-Rooibos Almond Marzipan
-Rooibos Vanilla Heaven
-Rooibos Cream Caramel
The cart was giving me difficulties with shipping when I had 10 items instead of 9, so the owner kindly offered to include what I wanted as a 10th option (Hojicha) with the rest of my order :)
Also bought a 3-month Della Terra Try Me Sampler subscription and the 52teas Christmas box in the past week or so. Well on my way to becoming a fellow tea addict! :)
I couldn’t take it anymore! I placed my first Mandala order :D
Mandala “Wild Monk” Raw Pu’er 100 gram – 2012 (which I have actually never tried before, so I hope I love it!)
2 oz Special Dark – 2006 Loose Ripe Pu’er (which I have been daydreaming about drinking again ever since I finished my swap sample from Kimquat!)
MMmmm can’t go wrong with Mandala. I regret not picking up more Black Pearls when I had the chance now they are sold out :((
Really should get another Wild Monk cake, and more Special Dark.
I’m with you on the Black Pearls. I’ve never even tried them but I keep hearing wonderful things. The Wild Monk Mao Cha is sold out so I wanted to jump on the cake before that one is gone too!
Whoa, synchronicity! I posted below and then saw yours. I know we were both talking in comments about how much we wanted to try Mandala, so funny we both finally did at the same time! High five. (:
HA! Nice! What other pu-erhs did you get? I was super tempted to get more of the milk oolong as well, but I’ve kind of got plenty of straight oolongs already at the moment! I’ll totally send you some of the Wild Monk from my cake to sample if you like :D
I actually grabbed that cake too, I was inelegantly/unclearly lamenting having to buy an entire cake before trying it, sorry for the confusion (and that is super nice of you to offer! If you want to try anything I end up with, let me know!). Let’s see, I got Noble Mark, Special Dark, the Loose and Luscious Lincang (because I saw it’s what Phatty Cake’s made of), and the Bu Lang Gong Ting. These are my first serious forays into pu erh—I’ve got two or three little sample bits and bobs from Verdant, and pu erh’s been in a couple blends I’ve liked, but I’ve never really thrown myself into it. Hoping I love it. Have good feelings about it based on the little I’ve tried and the people here who adore it often having similar tastes to me about other things.
I’ve had this order on the back burner for a while now, so to finally place it was weirdly cathartic, haha.
OH you got the cake too! I hope we both love them!!!
I’ve tried most of those except the Bu Lang Gong Ting. We could do a swap some day if you like but there is no rush. I have a TON of new stuff to try right now :)
I feel ya, I had this order on the back burner for weeks, too!
Mmmmmmm you and your pu’er :) sounds delicious. I’ll have to check them out!
