After going back and forth between which company I would order from next, I went with Teavivre. I got samplers! I’m still at that stage where I want to try it all!
Black tea sampler
Green tea sampler
Oolong tea sampler
And for my two samplers I got two different puerhs. It’s a nice variety!
I couldn’t help myself! This site has made me an addict. After just Recieving my first verdant tea order today I had to make another order with my $5 off.
-Eight Treasures Yabao (yay!!!!!!!!!!!!)
-Bai Mu Dan White Tea
All I had to pay for was shipping:)
So excited. 2 perfect teas for iced steeps:)
You are in for a treat. Verdant is amazing! I’ve been tracking my incoming Verdant like a fiend.
I loveee Eight Treasures, I’ve never tried it iced, but it is so good hot, I waited all year for it to return and just got an oz last week, will probably get a lot more of it before its out :)

I need to stop and join hiatus thread
My impulse is to say “So?”
The sign of me being an addict. xD; I think I better join you in that hiatus thread.
Haha. Just don’t be a bad influence on the people there. It’s sorta turned into an "Oh, I feel guilty but I just bought “X” amazing tea" confessional.
I just picked up that teapot! I really need to stop reading this thread! Bad influence!! ;)
So I took advantage of the H&S sale – saved $5, so I basically paid $10 for shipping. That’s ok, I suppose!
HT Vanilla Comoro – 20 sachet tin
Florence – loose 4 oz tin
Paris – loose tea sample
Tower of London – loose tea sample
Queen Catherine – loose tea sample
SoHo Blend – loose 4 oz tin
Pomegranate Oolong – loose tea sample
Boston – loose 4 oz tin
I thought that because I was going to spend so much on shipping ANYWAY, I’d better upgrade Boston and SoHo to tins instead of just samples (even though I’ve never tried them.) Now I’m wondering if I should have upgraded the Queen Catherine instead of the SoHo, but there will be plenty of time for regrets later.
Today I’m just celebrating my first full paycheque since I went off on maternity leave! (Only 5 more of those coming before I quit and move to ON, but I have money for now!)
I like queen Catherine but since I’ve discovered Steven and a&d, I think I prefer them a bit more :). I may hit you up to try soho and the vanilla Comoro. I think those are the only 2 apart from Tower of London that I haven’t tried? I think?
Good to know you like the other ones more than Queen Catherine as your reviews was one of the ones that made me think I should try a tin. :P But the Boston and SoHo seemed more like safer bets.
Maybe I’ll start a spreadsheet to track the teas ppl are interested in so I don’t forget by the time it comes in. (In a month? Who knows…)
I slipped. It had been so long since I placed an online tea order! It’s actually kind of funny – I was looking at my credit card statement the other day in wonder, because the total was significantly lower than it usually is each month. And then it dawned on me…. that there wasn’t a single tea order on it! It’s all cell bill, gas, and food. Heh…
Anyways! Teensy weensy Verdant order for me:
Laoshan Roasted Oolong – 7g, $2
Laoshan Green Oolong – 7g, $2
Bai Mu Dan White Tea – 7g, $2.75
Bergamot Rose Laoshan Black – 7g, $2
Laoshan Black Chocolate Genmaicha – 7g, $1.50
$14.75, minus $10 coupon
Grand Total: 4.75. Not too terrible…. right?!
Wasn’t going to buy anything, but I was influenced by the cute teapot boychik posted above from Harney’s. I mean, it was on sale! How could I pass that up?!! I really need to stop reading this thread!
I also ordered a bunch of oolong samples, because I’m on an oolong kick recently, and also a black tea that sounded yummy:
Formosa Oolong – loose tea sample
Li Shan – loose tea sample
Spring Floral -Ti Quan Yin loose tea sample
Ali San – loose tea sample
SoHo Blend – loose tea sample
15% off and free shipping! Yay!
I keep thinking that I had to get that tea pot set. so cute and price was awesome. i hope you’ll like it. Please let me know
Hey boychik! The teapot set is adorable! Got it yesterday. It’s a little smaller than I thought, but the little built-in infuser at the outlet of the spout was a nice surprise. I really like it. I think I’ll save it for oolongs. :)
Beginning of the month + payday + self-promised reward = eight new teas on the way!

I went to my local tea store yesterday and got 1 oz of Creamy Earl Grey ($2.99). (I would have loved to bought others.) Funny how the immediate possession of one tea is not the same as ordering 4 or 5 and then waiting a week or so.
