I got my sTeap shoppe order! One day after shipping! Super fast, but that could be because I think they are located only about an hour or so away from me! I’m so excited to try the cinnamon swirl bread tea!!!! It’s too cruel though, because I can’t drink caffeinated tea until the morning! Aaaaaahhhh! I must say, also, that the sample size teas I ordered were generous, like 0.5 oz! That’s great!

I hate when that happens. Stupid caffeine!

Sil select said

nice to know the samples sizes are good amounts :) enjoy tomorrow!

Nice! What all did you order other than the cinnamon swirl bread?

Tealizzy said

I got samplers of black and white, milk chocolate, vanilla bean, sunrise sensation, and Darjeeling second flush jungpana oolong! I’m drinking cinnamon swirl bread RIGHT NOW! OH MAN!!! I’ll write a log soon!

I am visiting my parents, which means picking up all the tea orders I’ve had shipped here (so I don’t have to deal with my post office orz). I got:

52teas TOTM Backlog: Red Velvet Mate, S’mores Genmaicha, Cuba Libre, Peach Cardamom. And I got my Marshmallow Genmaicha right before I left!
Red Leaf: Apple Pie and Rich Berry Pie Matchas
Della Terra: Strawberries & Cream, Rainforest Nectar, Shamrocks & Shenanigans, Perfect Pear. Free samples were Dirty Chai and Peach Oolong—I actually already have Dirty Chai, but hey, it’s free!

And this past week I’ve gotten big swaps with TastyBrew and Azzrian along with my Zhi order (Coconut Assam, Saigon Rose, Vanilla Rose, White Rose).

After not getting things for a while, it was a lot to get in 5 days!

Nice! Enjoy!!!

My RLT matcha latte mix testing samples came in!

Heavier than expected! Very excited to try! I wish my mail came in the morning, as my mail comes too late in the day for me to have powerful matcha caffeine.

My Verdant Tea Of The Month Free Trial order came! =)

Oh man I can’t wait for mine! What was in it???

Emily M said

I was so happy it came! Hope no one minds some spoilers! If you don’t want to know what’s in it, stop reading this now.

Stephanie-
Qianjiazhai Old Growth 2012 Sheng
Master Han’s Wild-Picked Yunnan Black
Xingyang Golden Buds 2010 Shu

Squee! So excited to try them! Thanks for the preview :)

Emily M said

No problem. I can’t wait to try them either!

Its on the webpage now :) i think its rather silly that they did two pu`erhs with the month of the first trial. mind you i’m already signed up to continue but i’m no big fan of pu`erh so..

yssah said

i imagine you can easily swap them out for other quality teas

Emily M said

I think they wanted everyone to be able to tell the difference between sheng and shu. But yeah, it kinda stinks if you don’t like pu’erh much. =(

I’ve never had a high quality pu-erh so I’m pretty excited. Maybe they’ll be awesome!

Emily M said

I like pu’erh, so I’m excited too. I think they’ll be really delicious!

Yesterday I went to the mailbox and low and behold…..Steep City Tea samples!!! I couldn’t wait to so tried the citrus sunshine oolong. It was amazing and the sample size was probably enough for 2 samplings….but alas I used it all. I hope the other 3 samples from steep city are as good, because I loved the first one.

Sil select said

steep city does samples? huh….or not? How did you manage those? I would have gotten samples from them in a heartbeat rather than get stuck with 2oz of a tea that is basically another tea. :(

I just shot them an email
