So I really should be watching my money and cutting back on spending but I noticed there was only one more package of Strawberry Pie Honeybush left on the 52 teas site and I could not resist. Plus, I figured once I was ordering I should throw in some Marshmallow Treat Genmaicha. At least it was under $20 and I only bought the teas I know I really enjoy.
I placed a small order with The London Tea Company as they have an up to 70% off gifts sale. The order only came to £8.62 but should have been £17.65. Huge saving!
1 x Pyramid Prism White = 2.39 which contains:
3x Rooibos, Nutmeg & Vanilla
3x Red Berries
3x Vanilla Chai
3x Decaffeinated Breakfast Tea
1 x The British Range = 3.48 which contains:
Lady Earl Grey contains: Black tea with orange & Bergamot.
Irish Breakfast Tea contains: Black tea.
Scottish Blend Tea contains: Black tea.
Sub-total (including VAT): 5.87
Standard Delivery (UK): 2.75
Grand Total: 8.62
Put in my very first order from 52 Teas. Got some I already liked.
So far my Black Friday Orders include:
Teavivre – a few samples
Yezi Tea – Restock of a few teas i love
Mandala tea – teas off my wish list, cleaning solution and MY FIRST CAKE! woot woot! I’m super duper excited about that!
I’m 2 out of 3 for that list and trying really hard not to make it 3 for 3.
(I really like the Mandala cleaning stuff…good choice)
What cake are you going for? Yay!
I’m getting some Teavivre samples too I think….
Dex – uh i’m also going to be placing 1-2 butiki orders? and a couple of della terra teas coming my way…
Steph – “Wild Monk” Raw Pu’er 100 gram – 2012 i missed the other cake i really wanted from garret a while back so i’m doing it!
Sil, from Mandala are you talking about the smart soak tea stain remover – do you know how well it works?
i am Lala – i haven’t used it but others have and tell me it’s great….and i know garret will stand by his product if i’m REALLY unhappy. I figure it’s worth 6$ to just test it out… i have a large number of tea stained things that i can’t get really clean :)
Lala – I have the smart soak – AMAZING on stainless steel infusers and travel mugs. FANTASTIC on my white kitchen counters. Pretty good, but it leaves a bit of a film that’s hard to get off my plastic gravity steeper. Hope that helps…
edit: word of caution, it really foams. Be careful not to burn yourself with hot water foaming and overflowing things like travel mugs -
I’d never heard of it, but am intrigued. I just scrubbed my counter with baking soda. Idek how it gets everywhere…
That cake sounds awesome! Enjoy!
dex..you say that like you know me…LOL
Cavo..it will be here…waiting for you to taste…the tea not the cleaning stuff haha
Woot, grats on your first cake! Ha, that was my first cake too and it is really amazing one!
Well I started Black Friday early and ended up picking up 4 blends from 52 teas:
-Banana Pudding Black Tea
-French Toast Black Tea
-Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecake Honeybush
Hope they are good!
Add to that my first ever Butiki order consisting of:
-Cantaloupe and Cream
-Pistachio Ice Cream
-Caramel Vanilla Assam
-Irish Cream Cheesecake
-Vanilla Frosted Carrot Cake
-Coconut Cream Pie Rooibos
and for my $20 worth of tea I asked for Root Beer Float, Almond Indulgence, Pumpkin Creme Brulee, and Pineapple Oolong
Then I placed my first order from Herbal Infusions in which I got some samples and 50 g of the Cacao Tea.
Finally I placed my first Della Terra order. I got 3 Try Me Samplers (and a 4th free!! YAY!!), and larger amounts of Carrot Cake, Eight Candles, Lime Chiffon, Oatmeal Raisin Cookie, and S’mores.
I got a lot of teas I never tried before so hopefully I am happy with what I got.
ETA: Just made my first non-tea Black Friday purchase! Bought a pair of Roots sweatpants to give to my roommate as a Christmas present!
Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecake is really good, one of my favs from them! I’m tempted to order an extra, but I’m sticking to my Black friday plan.
There, my Black Friday tea shopping is complete!
Noble Mark 2012 250g ripe pu’er cake
Heart of the Old Tree 2012 raw pu’er cake
Special Dark 2006 Loose ripe pu’er (need more DARK SIDE)
Lemon Chiffon 2oz
Lime Chiffon 1oz
Almond Biscotti 1oz
Caramel Oolong 1oz
The Persimmon Tea 1oz
I would of ordered more (had a few others on my list) but the shipping weight got heavy and I didn’t want to pay $11 priority.
That’s it! No more buying tea this weekend!
Ok I caved on Verdent, 3 teas I love/have been dying to try, all wrapped up pretty in tins.
Laoshan Village Terroir Gift Set
Plus a sample of golden fleece
Ok, I think I’m done for Black Friday shopping too!
With a $120 budget, I managed to get 23.5 oz of tea:
Teavivre Taiwan Oriental Beauty (used points)
Teavivre Da Hung Pao (Big Red Robe) (sample)
Mandala Special Dark Puerh
Butiki Ruby Pie
Butiki Vanilla Frosted Carrot Cake
Butiki Premium Taiwanese Assam
Butiki Caramel Vanilla Assam
Butiki Rhubarb Vanilla Ale
Butiki Maple Pecan Oolong
Butiki Doke Rolling Thunder Oolong
Butiki Coconut Cream Pie
Butiki Citrus Dream
Della Terra Carrot Cake
Della Terra Christmas Tradition
Della Terra Spiced Sugar Plum
Della Terra Root Beer Float
Della Terra Emperor’s Pu-Erh
Della Terra Eight Candles
Della Terra Winter Nog
Della Terra Chocolate Raspberry Truffle
Della Terra Oatmeal Raisin Cookie
I have maybe $10 of that left which I might use to order some Cacao tea from Herbal Infusions. I spent a lot of time planning this all out, and overall I’m pretty satisfied with what I ended up with! This should keep me from ordering for a while! (Probably until DAVIDsTEA releases the Spring Collection)
Hope you guys are just as happy with your scores!
I think I’m done my Black Friday shopping…
I definitely COULD have gotten more Butiki (there are certainly more blends I want to try) – but I still have some from my first Butiki order that I’ve yet to try so I held off on a couple.
Anyway, this is what I settled on:
Flowery Pineapple Oolong
Good Morning Sunshine
Rhubarb Vanilla Ale
Caramel Vanilla Assam
Irish Cream Cheesecake
Pistachio Ice Cream
Pineapple Cilantro Cream
From Della Terra:
Pineapple Upside Down Cake
A Rabbit’s Garden
Cinnamon Bun (Formerly Monkey Bread)
Marshmallow Treat Genmaicha
And, I have someone else placing an Adagio order for me so I can finally get my hands on the ONE blend that I’ve been dying to try from there (boo to $30 shipping). The blend I’m getting is The Woman (it’s a Sherlock blend).
I’m done shopping except for Della Terra, I want to see what teas go on sale for 60% off. I ended up going over my budget by about $80, but I decided to splurge and buy myself some teaware. What can I say, I like pretty things :) All in all not a bad haul and I should have enough tea to last me until my birthday (which was my goal.) I’m really excited to have four new tea companies to try out.
