You know what I really do not need any more of? Matcha. Yet somehow this just happened…
Red Leaf Tea
Apple Pie Matcha
Rich Berry Pie Matcha
Both small, classic grade, delicate level flavoring.
My first (albeit small) order from iHeartTeas.com because I have a shopping problem. lol
Green Tea and Cocoa Lip Balm
Matcha Mint Julep Lip Balm
Winter Frost Tea 2oz.
Total with shipping $19.20
I’d better confess now!! I just placed a crazy order on Adagio:
Eleven (doctor #11, that is)
LOL, there were specials on all of these, like if you got river song & eleven, you got 20% off both! I couldn’t resist!!
These are all cara McGee’s blends. So far her other blends have been tasty, & I was trying to avoid the shipping costs, LOL. Let me know if you want samples!
Farewell Ponds is another one that is quite tasty!
We drank it during this past season while we watched the show, & of course I cried in their final episode (;_;)
None of the other companions effected me that way. When Rose left, I was actually glad, LOL, I was kind of tired of her. Same with the others, I was ready to move on. But Amy & Rory? I loved them! They loved each other! And although I know it was time for them to move on too, it was still sad.
Meanwhile, I do like clara, & I think she’s going to be real fun! :D
momo – Not at ALL. Most of the people I know were happy or at least ready for her to go.
Rose was horrible. I was pretty worked up about Donna though, I must say. Didn’t like Martha Either. Maybe I just like the gingery ones? :)
Uniquity – I loved Donna (was mad that the previous companions seemed to invade her season)! Liked the Ponds too. Wasn’t big on Martha, either, though she wasn’t quite as bad as Rose. Maybe I’m more fond of the gingery one’s too! ;)
50gr. bai sha lu top grade 2013 harvest
50 gr. Huang Jin Gui Golden Osmanthus Oolong
50 gr. oriental beauty oolong
another try at oolongs. lol. still hit and miss at times. never tried oriental beauty.
the bai sha lu green tea has become my daily fave, and it doesn’t break the bank.
Adagio – not a huge fan but I love Fujian Rain and Josie Jade made Cream sound SO good!
Plus I finally got my first 10 dollar gift certificate now! Yay!
sweet potato pie sample (free for facebook posting – want to compare to Handmade Tea’s blend)
Fujian Rain 2oz
masala chai sample – this was auto added for some reason – Wish I could have picked something else.
matcha fruit mix sample – wow free sample of this – YAY!
Total – 15.75 NOT bad at all! Great shipping cost!
I’m excited to see what you think about the Sweet Potato Pie sample too. I didn’t like this one at all, unfortunately. I just saw the Matcha Fruit Mix sample on the website – it looks interesting!
I have had it before I do believe but I don’t have the sample anymore so wanted another so I could do side by side. I highly doubt it will be as good as Handmade tea.
Oh and I also created my own blend on Adagio to use my 10.00 off!
YAY! I hope it is good :)
It SOUNDS excellent haha.
I think the chai sample is from the Superbowl Squares consolation prize? The matcha fruit mix is really good, I devoured mine!
The Ultimate Bliss does sound good! And y’all are making me want to order some of the matcha fruit now!
Well if you order anything else you can get a free sample of the fruit! I was shocked when I saw I could get a sample of it for FREE!
So I did haha. Oh and thank you for the compliment on my blend! :)
That matcha fruit did sound interesting…
As does your blend, Azz.
I’ve been experimenting with a blend I want to order…
My own Blend Ultimate Bliss from Adagio
2.25 with my 10 off loyalty bucks and .50 cents off for posting Adagio to facebook
A blend of Vanilla and Almond Oolong (I adore oolong) to give a sweet cookie like base, some cherry black tea for a sweet tangy boost of flavor, and cocoa nibs because we all need more cocoa!
blended with oolong tea, black tea, natural almond flavor, natural vanilla flavor, natural wild cherry flavor, rose petals, dried cherries.
I already quit Lent…I had this fleeting (horrible) thought yesterday that I would give up buying tea for Lent. What a joke.
Cuba Libre Black Tea
Definitely had to pick up the Cuba Libre tea.
I just used my first coupon/certificate for Capital Teas (Thank you, Yappychappy…http://steepster.com/discuss/4833-fellow-tea-addicts-how-do-you-keep-from-going-broke?page=2) for the following:
Himalayan Gold Organic
Summer Cherry Fig
I plan to use the 2nd certificate I purchased to get the Peregrine First Flush Mountain. Not sure what else. I figure I’ll use the certificates to justify buying tea more expensive than I would normally pony up for. :)
I also just placed an order with Butiki in the last couple days for more of the Taiwanese Wild Mountain Black and Zhen Qu to keep me stocked up.
And… last week I got my New Mexico Tea order of Casablanca, Yunnan Gold, Peach Apricot Black and Coconut Black.
I’ve been bad lately…
I ordered some Red Leaf Rich Berry Pie Matcha today…I could not resist that sale dangit!
7 hours left ;)
Jealous although I have too much matcha to begin with. I will in time get some of this too :)
No Apple Pie?
The apple pie was tempting too, but I’m not sure how fast I will go through it yet. This is my first matcha order! I’ve only had samples so far that other steepsters were kind enough to swap with me :)
I refuse to sample out matcha as it /to me/ seems like quite a bit would get wasted from swapping bags and such and it being so fine to begin with, but I would gladly accept any/all matcha samples. just saying. If someone has a large amount to part with that is sitting around needing to be consumed (matcha shelf life!) i’d gladly pay for samples.
