Since Amoda isn’t doing a subscription box any more, and I’m allowing myself 2 subscriptions, I signed up for Tea Sparrow. It looks similar to Amoda’s so we’ll see.
So I caved and ordered from Zen Tea before their sale expired. 40% was too good to pass up. And considering I haven’t made any sort of order since….well, I can’t actually remember the last time I ordered tea. Lol. I did pick up some Adagio fandom sets from one of the stores before they ran out, but that was months ago. I think I’m doing pretty good on that front. Certainly better than my old ‘order at least one every month’ routine. XD; Bummed since I missed out on getting a tin with my phoenix pearls because I waited so long to order. XD; Ah well. Maybe next time.
Black-Phoenix Pearl Black – 100g (3.5 oz) pouch
Oolong-Bossa Nova – 50g (1.8 oz) pouch
Black tea-Vanilla – 20g (0.7 oz) pouch
Black-English Breakfast – 20g (0.7 oz) pouch
Black Tea-Ceylon Kenilworth OP – 20g (0.7 oz) pouch
Oolong-Shui Hsien Organic – 20g (0.7 oz) pouch
Assam Mangalam Second Flush FTGFOP1 – 20g (0.7 oz) pouch
Though I just realized that I had decided not to get that Shui Hsien, but apparently forgot to take it out of my cart. /headdesk/ Rarrgh.
This bad girl ordered the Korean Sejak from Zen Tea, this will be new for me. I also got more Sencha Ashikubo this weekend from Camellia Sinensis, this tea taken after a short nap gives me delusions of being 20 years old again, I feel that good after a few cups. They also have a brand new teeny 2 oz kyusu for sample tasting, so cute and only $12.
I envy you so much. Wanted to try their black teas, but I can only afford small amounts (from local shops) and reviewing samples.
Lariel – Technically I shouldn’t have ordered anything since I still have so much I need to drink first, but the sale was too good to pass up. XD And really, with the coupon, most of their samples were only about $1, so that was most of the problem. Lol!
I placed an order too. Like you Shadowfall, w/many of the samples being around $1 and the larger sizes not much more than that, it was hard to resist. Shipping being $5 for US was great too, it didn’t go up from there, but no free shipping after a certain amount (but I wouldn’t have hit that anyway).
Apt – I’m not a big fan of teas that have a straw/grass flavor profile. I’d much rather have a black tea over that. Lol.
I also placed an order with Kenneth @ Zen Tea Life during their May sale:
- Assam Mangalam Second Flush FTGFOP1 – 200g (7 oz.) http://steepster.com/teas/zen-tea/30455-assam-mangalam-second-flush-ftgfop1
- Black tea-Keemun Finest – 200g (7 oz.) http://steepster.com/teas/zen-tea/46734-black-tea-keemun-finest
The website pricing includes a 10% quantity discount for the 200 g size plus the 40% off sale = 50% total discount!
Just bought my first (non-bagged) oolong tea! http://www.mountaintea.com/collections/clearance/products/formosa-jade-oolong-5oz
I’m supposed to be on hiatus until June 9, but I couldn’t miss that clearance deal!!
on friday I placed my first ever order from Jing Tea Shop, a vendor which I’ve been eyeing for a while now.
I got Mi Lan AAA dancong, Ba Xian dancong, Rou Gui A yancha, bai mu dam white, and……my first ever gaiwan.
you can say that im pumped
Jing Tea Shop is a great company! Their oolongs (in particular, their yancha) are superb!
whoa, I just checked their site – they’re going to debut tea from their own farm in wuyi – can’t wait!!!
I really like their Tie Luo Han and their Lao Cong Shui Xian. Their Ya Shi is very good as well, though not a yancha. Don’t let the name throw you off… it’s amazing! I will definitely be picking up some other yancha when they debut the tea! :)
A couple black teas from Jkteashop. I blame yyz.
Another order from Damn Fine Tea…. Yunnan Gold Tips (horsey tin) and another tin of the Spring Keemun which I LOVE! Now I have to put off my first order from Canton Tea Company… grrrrrr….
I placed the Butiki order I’ve been plotting for days and days. I kept switching things up and adding more and more…and deciding I needed more of each.
I wound up ordering:
Lemon French Macaron
1994 Aged Bai Hao
Wen Shan Bao Zhong
The Killer’s Vanilla
Blackberry Lime Guayusa
Champagne & Rose Cream
Eggnog and Pralines (because Stacy is AWESOME!!!)
I placed a one-month subscription with Simple Loose Leaf. I used a coupon they gave us in the Traveling Herbal/Caffeine-free box (thanks!!).
I seriously need to ban myself from aliexpress but they are having a three day promotion which means sales so I bought:
A nice but on sale Gaiwan 150 ml. When I factor in transit its cheaper than my 5$ China Town stoneware ones. http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Tureen-gaiwan-ruyao/1724300711.html
lapsang Souchong (possibly from the company I’ve been searching for).http://www.aliexpress.com/item/250g-50-pec-Lapsang-Souchong-Wuyi-mountain-black-tea-that-it-s-out-off-the-world/1656762518.html.
I ordered tea for the first time in a while… but it’s not for me! My mom’s birthday present from Harney & Sons. I got her a sample cube for last Christmas and Paris was her favorite, so:
1 tin of Paris sachets
1 tagalong tin of Tower of London sachets
1 tin of Peach Iced Tea sachets
