Today I went berserk on orders.
First off, I ordered sumptin’ sumptin’ from RiverTea – it would have been silly not to, they have 50% off going on right now (Did you know that, guys? Now you do. No, don’t thank me. Remember the code RIVERTEA50). I got 50 grams of each of the following:
- Sumatra Special (Indonesia Black Tea)
- Mulberry White Tea
- Marquis de Gris (Mango, Bergamot Black Tea)
- Ocean Breeze (Ginger Lemon Green Tea)
- Chocolate Kisses Chili (Fruit Tea)
And then… I decided to place another big order with Whispering Pines :O Yes, I did just get one like… not even a month ago. But it’s Friday, funday, payday. And that’s how I roll. And it’s virtual insanity (http://youtu.be/MEyXHTQ_xV8). And I just don’t care. I just had to place that order. I know you guys understand me :D
Anyways…. Here’s what I got:
- The Sleeping Bear Blend 1 oz. (There’s only 5 ounces they have left of it… Just sayin’)
- Fujian Black Tea 2 oz.
- Dark Roast Anxi Tieguanyin 1 oz.
- Imperial Gold Bud Dian Hong 1 oz.
- Cedar Ridge 1 oz.
- Elder Grove 1 oz.
Oh dear. That 50% off special with River Tea is incredibly tempting – I don’t know if I can resist.
I caved. 50g of Mulberry White, Granny’s Cake, Marquis de Gris, and Spring Tea.
I think the 50% off is good until Sunday (6/8), so you still have some time to make up your mind, Christina!
Looks like awesome choices, Marzipan. Granny’s Cake is really yummy. I still have some left from my previous order. And Mulberry White is one of the best flavored white teas I have ever tried.
I’m in the same boat as Christina. That’s a pretty good deal. XD /ponders/ Sheesh. I totally didn’t need another company to think about ordering from. I’m considering getting mainly their straight teas, and their Granny’s Cake since I had that in a TTB and it was tasty.
I wish there were reviews about the Sumatra Special since that’s the one I’m mostly on the fence about.
Yup, I totally caved. Bought 10 things from River Tea!
- Golden Yunnan
- African Star
- Mountain Herbs
- Crazy Mint
- Ruby Red
- Strawberry Champagne green
- Mulberry White
- Loco Lime
- Midsummer Night
- Sweet Meringue
All told, with the coupon, it came to about $47 CAD.
I HAD to place my first order with Kusmi Tea this morning. My sister’s birthday is coming up, and she was very interested in their Violet tea when I shared the site with her, PLUS they finally got their Russian Blends mini-tins back in stock! (it’s literally been at least a couple of months since I discovered their site and this is the first time I’ve seen it in stock)
So, I purchased:
-Violet (black tea) 4.4 oz. tin
-Russian Blends mini-tins (set of 5)
-Green Teas mini-tins (set of 5)
So excited! :D
I have been eyeing the Russian mini tin blends as well. I will watch for your reviews!
boychik – I completely missed this comment. Thank you so much for the offer. I will send you a PM.
I took advantage of some aliexpress sales last night and bought some Da Hong Pao from http://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/100g-DaHongPao-Wuyi-mountain-rock-tea-oolong-tea-in-China-perfumes-and-fragrances-of-brand-originals/1080289_1645407756.html
And some Yunnan black tea cones
I finally caved and put in a H&S order. Boychik and Nicole got me with the Nahorhabi Assam which they only had a dozen tins left so I placed an order.
3 oz tin Nahorhabi Assam
3 oz tin Golden Monkey
4 oz tin Queen Cathorine
4 oz tin Indian Nimbu
Looking forward to enjoying all of these again.
Butiki order! Woohoo!
I noticed recently that I was running out of flavored black teas, and I’ve had a few of Butiki’s on my wish list. I ordered:
Foxy Roxy’s banana walnut treat
Meeeehhhhh. I completely caved and ended up ordering from RiverTea. 50% off was just too good to pass up. I’m so weak willed when it comes to tea. And now this is two orders within a few weeks of each other when otherwise I didn’t have an order for months. Now I’m just resisting that Verdant order that keeps lurking around the edges at me….and the Whispering Pines one….And the Andrews & Dunham…. XD
Picked up 50g each of these:
Assam Beast of the East
You know, I find it surprising that the 50% off deal is only through word of mouth. There’s nothing about the coupon on the RiverTea website, Facebook page, or Twitter feed.
i thought it was only for new orders – like a first time buys thing but it looks like everyone is able to use it heh
Sneaky! I never saw the original ad, so I wonder if it was just supposed to be for new accounts, but then we leaked the code?
Not sure. This was actually my first order with RiverTea, even though I opened the account back in February. But I definitely didn’t receive any promo emails about it either.
That’s odd! I got a few e-mails from them in the past week about 50% off. They did mention that the discount is somewhat connected to “first orders” but they were doing it a little vaguely… This was my second order with them but they never said anything about the coupon not being valid for me. Also, they had a banner for it on their website when I was ordering and I am pretty sure it didn’t restrict the coupon for new visitors / first orders.
I placed my first Taiwan Tea Crafts order! Sil reminded me that if you only order the 25g samples and spend $25 or more you can get free shipping with ‘freeship25’ as the coupon.
I ended up grabbing 25g each of:
Yuchi Wild Mountain Black Tea, Lot 242 -$8.50
Sun Moon Lake Premium Grade Assam Black Tea, Lot 269 -$7.50
Alishan Mi Xian Black Tea, Lot 229 -$11.50
1982 Sun Moon Lake Aged Black Tea, Lot 220 -$4.25
Family Heritage Charcoal Fired Oolong Tea, Lot 265 -6.75
which added up really quick, but I’m excited to delve into these fancy unflavoured teas!
Also, I had a glitch in my cart when I tried to checkout, so they said they will also throw in 25g of a new Spring 2014 Assam that isn’t on the site yet! Wow. I’m impressed! I only hope this isn’t one of those companies that require a signature on delivery because that means automatic tea jail and I want this yesterday. Haha. :P. Ok, time to calm down and drink tea.
YAY! and the packaging is so pretty..i’m excited for you. also dibs on trying the assam! haha..and maybe the charcoal oolong :)
Every time I get on their site to place an order I get overwhelmed. I want to order EVERYTHING. You have a great list to start with I might just have to place a duplicate order:)
teatiff… keep it to 25$ with 25g sizes.. free shipping… then place another order after you’ve tried a few…
Today is my lucky day because in a couple of days i will be reunited with Two Tigers and Finbarr’s Revenge. Terri HarpLady sent me many samples, but these two were exceptional (for me). I was sad to learn that Two Tigers were retired but AmazonV made them come back in very limited amount.
just went all out on my first and final Origin Tea order (RIP)
Got the Alishan, light roast Lishan, dark roast shui xian, a 1999 puer, and a 2003 liu an. this should last me a while until my friend goes to taiwan and visits some farms. he let me sample an alishan which was great, and he also gave me an excellent aged oolong, so I cant wait to see what he brings back.
Upton is in the red zone for dangerous now that I receive their catalog (I really like looking through it…). At least I introduce a tea-loving friend to their African teas.
