a TTB – I think it’s Here’s Hoping
And my combined Tao Tea order with Blodeuyn, Cookies, Boychik and Queen of Tarts!
http://imgur.com/rPalwz8 – so much tea!
That’s a ton of tea! I’m jealous I haven’t received mine yet and I live within a 30km from the place!
Yay! That came super quick. If you want to try anything that I ordered, feel free to help yourself.
I have to say, it was so painless working with all of these ladies on this split order. Tea people are the best!
I got my Butiki Order! Didn’t even get an email that it shipped. So that was a nice surprise! :D ^^ So much tea! I’m so excited!
It’s been an awful day so far too, so this cheered me up! :D
what teas did you order from Butiki? I love hearing what everyone picked out in the sale!
I just checked my tracking. Mine is out for delivery!!! dances around :D :D
Lolainred, I got:
4oz of The Black Lotus
4oz of Caramel Vanilla Assam
6oz of Maple Pecan Oolong (seriously one of my favorite teas!)
4oz of Hello Sweetie
Then for my free teas, I chose:
1oz of Hello Sweetie
1/2oz of that new Butterscotch tea
2oz of Premium Taiwanese Assam (Need to see what the hype’s about!)
1/2oz of Sansia Black
and 1/2 of Hattiall Golden Paw Assam
I’m so stoked!! :D :D
Sorry about that. We are holding off on sending notices until all the non-problem orders ship to get stuff out faster.
Oh okay. Makes sense. Thank you, Stacy! :D You’re the best!
Sarsonator I definitely will! :P Wonder how long it will last…hmm….
oooo.. those sound great. I actually haven’t tried most of them, but let’s be honest what DOESN’T sound great from Stacy? I almost got come of the maple pecan oolong this time. And I got my shipping notification today! woot!
OMG OMG OMG! Best mail day ever!
I got my Butiki order!!!!! Like others, I thought it wasn’t even shipped yet! Thank you, Stacy!!!! I’m in black tea heaven!
I also got samples from Teavivre! Woohoo!
This totally makes my day. I’m sitting here trying to work with dilated eyes from being at the eye doctor….No fun! But I have TEA!!!!!!!!
Hong yun black
Hattialli golden paw assam, and
Butterscotch and hazelnut mocha candies!
I had Zhen Qu yesterday and it was awesome!!
I just had my Tao tea leaf order hand delivered to my house by Tao himself! My aunt who greeted him didn’t know who he was so I ran after him to thank him. Apparently the sale went really well and they decided to hand deliver some local parcels in order to ensure a timely delivery.
For those who are curious I got Zenghe Gongfu, Golden Needle and Yingde Hong.
I wish I had caught him earlier so I could have invited him in for a cup.
That’s fantastic!!!! LOL My order is in Mississauga according to tracking.
Enjoy your tea yyz.
That means it’s made it through the first sorting station and will probably be on its way to you tonight!
Thanks everyone I’m sure I will enjoy them. It’s particularly special because where I live is about a 30- 35 minute drive from Tao’s store.
That’s just amazing! Talk about a wow factor….can’t wait to get mine, although I know he won’t show up here, that’s for sure! Enjoy :-)
Zen Tea Life—Teaware, Lots of beautiful teaware that I really should photograph.
52teas— Blackberries and Cream Shou Mei, Peaches and Cream Genmaicha, and Tequila Lime Green Tea.
Whispering Pines—Golden Orchid, Rivendell, Cocoa Amore, Elderwood, El Dorado Chai and a sample of the Wee Snaily Yums(Brandon read my mind! I’ve been wanting to try this)
Must. Drink. All. The.Tea.
Indeed it’s a very good day. I was a little intimidated by the Zen box because I didn’t realize just how big the tea tray was! They upgraded me from a medium tray to the full size one because of a stock problem. Man is it beautiful.
And yes a WP day is a good day. I’m drinking GO already and in heaven.
That’s what I am drinking right now. I’d love to see your teaware. I am in the market for some and am looking at options.
I adore GO and can’t wait to try the rest of the Vanilla Dreams collection. I have all of them except for Port which was out of stock when I made my order.
Here’s what I got from Zen
(I really shouldn’t have access to my credit card at night when I can’t sleep)
Oh I see there is a demand for pictures…
I’ll take some as soon as I’m done drinking this cup of GO.
Congrats! Excellent choices! Wishing you great tea sessions.
I have this one, the same potter, I love it
Have you decided on a tea? I assume it’s your first Yixing, I highly recommend David Duckler video on youtube.
It is my first and I’m pretty sure this is going to be my Mandala’s Milk Oolong pot. That’s the one tea I drink enough of to warrant it’s very own yixing.
I’m not sure if I’ll expand it to any other oolongs or keep it to the Milk Oolong.
Lol, I can’t tell, they both rated at 100 for me!!
Great haul, you did really good on your shopping spree :-) zen tea is awesome, and that tray, OMG!!
And WP…I get emotional just taking about it. You’re gonna have a great tea night, enjoy, can’t wait to read your notes :-)
I haven’t used photobucket in ages but here goes it http://s286.photobucket.com/user/frolic_with_me/library/Teaware
Sorry they aren’t the best pictures. My hands are a bit shaky.
You got some really gorgeous things! How big is that pitcher? I’m in the market for a small glass pitcher and that price is very reasonable
I received my Golden Tips Tea July subscription box. You guys weren’t kidding that it is a lot of tea!!!
Oh dear that reminds me that the August box is coming soon!
I haven’t even finished all of July’s. I am going to be one caffeinated person with my latest haul and trying to sip down my cupboard. It is vital to remember to enjoy and savor each sip though, no mater how much tea there is to drink.
For July I received:
1 Gold Pouch – Avaata Supreme Nilgiri
1 Gold Pouch – Arya Pearl Darjeeling
1 Goomtee Darjeeling
1 Lohagarh Assam
1 Harmutty Assam
1 Darjeeling Earl Grey
1 Singbulli Oolong Darjeeling
1 Runglee Rungliot Darjeeling
1 Daily Darjeeling
1 Temi Autumnal Sikkim
1 Okayti Splendour Darjeeling
1 Giddapahar Muscatel Darjeeling
1 India’s Original Masala Chai
I noticed on their site the samplers are 50% off. I posted it in the sales thread. http://goldentipstea.com/collections/samplers
Are those the same gold pouches as last month? I can’t remember.
Edit – yep.
Yum! Those are mostly different from my July box. Except I got those gold bags. I don’t enjoy the first flush as much as the second. I can’t wait to get August!
10g of 10 teas, this was my box last month.
Hmm, B you got 13 teas this month?
i can barely get through an ounce of tea a month from monthly teaboxes…i can’t imagine trying to get through 100g each month.
Apparently so. I had also ordered a sampler (Autumn Flush) so maybe they put in an extra by mistake. I had 2 Autumn Flush teas (took out the Autumn sampler teas then counted what was left in my box).
How are teas from this vendor? I have ordered many teas direct from China but never direct from India.
The teas have been good. A lot are new to me as I’m more familiar with Chinese teas so it’s been fun trying the different samples. Shipping has been reasonable in that they shipped both my orders within 24 hours and provided a tracking number. If you’re interested in trying something I think I have at least one duplicate sample and probably more once my second order arrives.
I received the Pass the Stash TTB today! How is it that three three tea boxes, moving at different rates, started at different times, with different people all end up at my house at the same time!!! I bet it is one of those things as rare as the alignment of all the planets in the solar system. :D I now have TTB-Samples Only, Tea and Card TTB, and Pass the Stash TTB! They all came within 3 days of each other. (I also bought 37 teas while I was in Florida.) My husband has been seeing the arrival of these boxes and is not amused. I keep explaining about the “take some/give some” concept but he still thinks there is way too much tea here. (Well, he is right about that!)
Celebrate! Happy old lady dance… sort of like the happy dance but with less energy and coordination!
That is a lot of tea, but it’s not like you spent money on the TTBs, right? Husbands! ;) I’m imagining you swimming in tea sample bags, haha!!!
I got my Green Terrace samples http://instagram.com/p/rSvmayxWFG/ look how pretty the packages are.
And a pretty little glass gaiwan that I christened with some beautiful Four Seasons Spring oolong. http://instagram.com/p/rSvCalRWEM/
I got back from my 2-day, 200-mile Pan-Mass Challenge trek on Sunday night. Today, my Stacy’s birthday Butiki order showed up. What a reward for all that riding! I got:
The Black Lotus
Premium Taiwanese Assam
1989 Suncha Blend
Anji Bai Cha
Taiwanese Wild Mountain Black
