Outside of a few, small tea purchases this sales weekend, I finally purchased a canister I’ve been eyeing on Aliexpress.
Taking advantage of Harney and Sons 25% off and free shipping still going on today.
Love, love, love spicy teas…. so going with
Decaf Hot Cinnamon Spice 4 oz. (so many good reviews, hard to resist)
-Can’t wait for this one to arrive!
Hubby likes milder teas and thought it might be good to find a tea that would be great iced that our son might like too so went with….
Blood Orange Herbal blend
-Hoping we like it since I went w/4 oz. Hard to beat the price difference between a sample and the 4oz tin! Not many reviews on it, but decent responses… We’ll see about this one.
Was tempted to grab Paris, but have several teas on their way… not sure how many Hubby can handle at once being this is a new hobby/adventure in tasting. Might cave and order it too before the day is over.. We’ll see.
IF anyone has any suggestions for things to try… feel free to chime in. We don’t have too much experience with teas yet. Hubby tends to like green or black with mild flavors. I don’t care much for green, but I like blacks, not sure yet about roobios (my fav bag tea has a blend of roobios and other teas, but tried a roobios chai from Tea & Spice Exchange and not crazy about it).. but I love almost anything so far with a spice to it, as I mentioned above :)
Without a good tea shop near us, and having just gained an interest in tea, we haven’t tried Oolongs, Pu-erhs, etc. Just getting started, so the ones with easy to identify names are the ones we have been starting with until we get a taste for what our likes are.
Dön’t feel rushed. There are many good teas out there.
My two favorite vendors are Verdant
Thanks CelebriTEA… & You’re right, I’m too eager to try new things. I need I take my time and do my research, & then enjoy as I sample and learn.
I did look seriously at Butiki, but couldn’t justify spending enough to qualify for their sales without having tries any of their teas before. They look like a favorite around here, so I’m sure I’ll get started with them sometime soon.
The Verdant site looks familiar, so I think I was looking at their sales… Not sure what pulled me in another direction. Too many choices I suppose :)
I’m kinda jealous you were able to get an order in. I haven’t been able to due to the site crashing.
Jeweled thumb… I didn’t have any problems with it crashing it just went really slow !!
Well…I had a really awful day yesterday and missed out on cyber monday for all companies that i was looking to order from. I had “free money” on my paypal account so i figured what the hell and just placed an order for the following:
PU-EHR GOURMAND LES 100 G
TEA FLEURILEGE 100G
ROOIBOS CARAMEL-TOFFEE 100G
I would have also ordered from Theodor, but their shipping to canada is like 30Euro…so forget that. I’ll just have to dream about celebration and the du loup…
A little tea buying makes everything a little brighter. I’m also quite sure that swaps could be arranged for some of the things you may have missed…..(Herbal Infusions 12 Christmas blends….)
heh yeah a few people took advantage so i’m sure between you and cavo and omg and a few others i’ll be covered. Not overly upset, just had a bad day! I think i’m fighting getting sick so that always makes me more easily frazzled heh.
sara – yeah except that with my luck i’ll get dinged with some random charge of a bajillion dollars when it gets here LOL. I just wish theodor had reasonable shipping or someone could tell me how to get some without paying 40euro for stupid shipping/taxes
….BUT Sil I thought you had that problem all worked out – you fly to Paris for the weekend….problem solved :))
yes but dex…i lead SUCH a busy life that there’s no possible way to get away until the new year…so i might as well just order them now giggling
I just have to say I really like that Adagio gives you points for free tea and that they are so easy to acquire. I just placed an order and got it for under $8.00 :D
Tree House Gift Pack
White Peach sample
Puerh Chorange sample
Puerh hazelberry sample
Cherry Almond Cookie
Today was a good day :]
Took advantage of Andrews & Dunham’s free shipping offer and ordered a tin of Tiger Assam.
I had to place an order with Mandala even though i ordered from them on BF. The code Milk didnt work so I called up and had a nice conversation with Jamie. The new code is REDDIT10. here it is
Milk Oolong Quantity 1 oz
100 gram Menghai Purple Rhyme (Zi Yun) – 2009
250 gram Mandala Noble Mark Ripe Cake – 2012
I’ve made and canceled at least 3 Adagio orders tonight. Anyway, ended up finally settling on buying my best friend’s Christmas gift, a tea blend that suits him, and a metal infuser, because I don’t know what he has to brew tea into.
I also bought the white tea sampler and the new flavored Pu-Erh sampler, so we’ll see how that goes. Not the biggest Adagio fan, but I’m determined to make myself like white teas, even if I only like them flavored, and the Pu-Erhs look so promising.
20% off, two free samples for Steepsterites, and free money sitting in my Paypal account… American Tea Room order!
Milk Oolong Tea 2 oz
Passion Fruit Organic Black Tea Sample (4 servings)
Victoria Organic Black Tea Sample (4 servings)

Placed a small order with Teavivre last night, though it was my first one so I guess that’s kinda notable!
My sample was the Peach Jasmine Dragon Pearls which I’ve never had before, but the actual order was 100g of Jasmine Silver Needle.
1x Ceylon No. 1 Tea – Sample
1x Golden Yunnan Tea – Sample
1x Milk Oolong Tea – Sample
1x Dan Cong Tea – Sample
1x Red Dragon Pearl Tea – Sample
ooh, it’ll be fun to compare notes! and i’ll be curious to see what you think of the dancong, i didn’t grab any.
few minutes later after i placed an order they send me a tracking number. unbelievable, it was after 10 o’clock at night. i like to taste and compare other people notes. many times i dont find something others do. then i come back,retaste. its fun. it will be my first Dan Cong tea. now im only hoping that USPS will deliver “reasonably” fast
