I’m very excited because I just bought a whole bunch of teas from Upton earlier today. On my shopping list:
Several teas from Nepal, one Formosa Oolong and a few Yunnans. I’ll let you know what I thought of them of course, but I know I’ll like them all.
What about you? Ordered anything recently? Who from and what did you choose?

I seem to order from 52Teas on a weekly basis. I swear I need to subscribe, but there is this part of me that fears that as soon as I do, I won’t like the tea that is offered. LOL!
Upton is a great company to order from, they always send samples along with the order, and they personalize the labels for you… makes me feel special when I get an order.

The last batch of tea I ordered were two pu’erh cakes sourced for a shop in the Czech Republic. Petr Novak generously got them for me as well as sending a tea set! I have yet to review them but they are fantastic!

The last ones I bought were from “real” stores but I should order soon (during the week) some Mariage Frères teas: Le Voyageur (traveller) together with Guerriers (Warriors) as a private joke with two friends/colleagues and another one (I don’t know which one yet).
From the Czech Republic? Sounds interesting.

I just purchased three black teas from the Art of Tea (my first order with them). One of the teas I ordered is their award-winning classic black tea. I thought it would be interesting to see what I think of the taste compared to the experts at the World Tea Expo. Plus, I’m curious to see how it compares to other black teas I’ve tried. AGWT

Recently, no. I’ve recently had a look at my tea stash & was surprised by how much I have so I’m wondering if I really should order more. But I’m running out of one of my Harney teas and for some reason I really have a craving for oolong (anyone have suggestions for a darker one that can take hot water?). But there are also some ebooks I want (need) to buy so we’ll see which wins out.

@agirlwithtea – What was the award winning “classic” black tea? It sounds so generic 🙂 – Also what did you think?
@xavier did you go ahead and purchase any teas from MF yet?
@teawench – I just received a really nice Formosa Oolong from Upton, they have a bunch of oolongs with suggested water temps of 190.
Also @gingko has some nice oolongs on her site, though I think they are closed for summer sales til the end of August. @marlon’s is also worth taking a look at.
One more thought TW, try some Nepalese teas. I bought 3 from Upton and really like them all!

I have yet to do it (shame on me :()

I actually placed my first order with Upton on Thursday….ordered a chocolate earl grey and an earl grey sampler. I’m really trying to branch out on my tea tastes.

Chocolate earl grey? Sounds interesting.

I placed too many orders last week! I ordered Milk Oolong and Caramel Spice from David’s Tea, Sleeping Dragon (a new green from Adagio), and today I will be placing a Teas Etc. order of far too much tea! But some of it is for my Grandma for her 80th birthday. She told me on the phone she’d love to drink loose leaf black tea, but not that flavored stuff! So I found a few they carry she might enjoy. 🙂
