You didn’t cash in on the Mandala sale?

Does Yunnan Sourcing sell anything under 50 grams?

Dexter said

Ubacat – the Mandala sale was a great deal, but I had just placed an order – I have TONS of Manadala tea here.
Lariel – the smallest amount that I saw was 50g – and some were 100g. I’m not a fan of that, but it’s sooooo cheap that I feel like if I don’t like something, will just use it as a black base for iced tea. I’ve tried a few and thought the quality was good….

Wow Yunnan is cheap. Is their sale still on?

Dexter said

Marzipan – all their oolongs – which includes some of the Fujian blacks – are 13% off – OOLONG13

Dexter, you can’t go wrong with YS. I have everything from your order and more…much more. Lotsa cakes. Very happy with my purchases.
Whispering Pines I placed an order myself. Sleeping Bear and El Dorado just couldn’t resist.
Verdant is great solid order. You did great. Enjoy. YS will take awhile but it worth waiting;-)

I’ve been eyeing YS longingly for a while. Might have to order some for my birthday.

Dexter said

Thanks boychik – I’m a big Verdant fan have been waiting for LB Chocolate Genmaicha to come back in stock – all the others are just replenishing favorites.
I’m I HUGE black tea fan – have been wanting to order from Yunnan Sourcing for awhile – I upgraded shipping to 10-20 days. I’m excited to try them. Will also be interesting to compare them to other sources I have here and to compare them to the WP I just ordered.

I’m waiting for the 5 for 5 new customer sampler from Verdant to be back. Regret not ordering that previously. (Hopefully they’re bring it back.)

Great teas! I hope to order from Whispering Pines on their next sale. I had too many orders going on this time.

so jealous dexter. i live vicariously through you…

Dexter said

Sil – stress makes me shop…..?

Sil select said

Dexter – heh i can’t let stress make me shop. not until i get through all the purchases we had to make for moving the house

I resisted Yunnan, mostly because I made a big Whispering Pines order, subscribed to a Golden Tips tea box, and have a couple of other things coming in. Honestly I forget what I order half the time and then I’m delighted when things come in the mail.

Yes, technically this was your fault <3 :)

boychik said

I know ;) but I feel good because you tried, it’s not blind buy

Yes! Samples are the best for that reason. I almost never blind buy anymore :)

Wanting tea for vacation and I do not want to mess with loose leaf so I caved and placed another H&S order with some sachets.

Eight at the Fort
Supreme Breakfast Blend
Elaine’s Blend.

Ordered some Teavivre samples with the anniversary promo. Yesterday I bought some oolong (slightly expensive). I’ve decided the amount of free tea I’ve gotten for reviews lately negates some cost.

I’m only letting myself make one online order per month. August goes to Single Origin Teas! I ordered:

Jun Chiyabari Second Flush Nepal – 2 oz.
Vietnam Black OP1 – 2 oz.

That’s a good idea for when I’m off hiatus… :P

I’ve been doing it since May. May, June, and July were all Whispering Pines purchases. :)

I’m restocking one I got from a swap, so that doesn’t count. Golden Orchid and Fujian Black Tea samples from Whispering Pines. (With bonus North Winds.)

Did you get the gaiwan as well?

That one isn’t on sale… so it’s a b-day order.

Just made my order with RiverTea to officially break my tea-buying hiatus!

I purchased:

- Ocean Breeze (green tea with lemon and ginger)
- Sweet Seduction (green tea with almond nougat)
- Granny’s Cake (chocolate spiced black tea – I loved my sample of this)
- Ceylon Ray of Light (Unflavoured Ceylon tea)

I also asked for samples of Baked Apple, Sweet Osmanthus, and Marquis de Gris.

Just made my first foray into Pu-erh and ordered Mandala’s ripe Pu-era sample pack! here’s to trying new things!

Just placed an order with Design-a-Tea. I feel like this is one of the tea companies that gets lost in the crowd, but they have some really fun and tasty signature tea blends.

My order:
Pirate Chai
Renaissance (blueberry nutmeg)
Island Blend
