Samples are great. When I started, my vendors really frowned on samples, limited them to a handfull per order. As a result, I often had to buy full bags or tins of a lot of teas to try a lot of teas.

So, your order is very sensible...all samples...kudos on trying so many new teas!!! That is how you find what you like...and how you learn.

insaniTEA is the norm around here.
Looks like you made some nice choices!

you were very smart in ordering samples. if you ever find yourself with more tea than you can drink- throw a party! not only will you have a great time, use some of your tea, but you may also introduce your friends to something they'll love!

You'll have to let me know how the white blueberry is. That one has intriqued me for quite some time but I'm really afraid of white teas tasting like greens.

Thanks, everyone! It's nice to know what you all thought of my order!

I also rearranged one of my cabinets so now I will have my own tea cabinet in the works!

Send me a PM so I will reply to it once I try the tea. Have you read the reviews on adagio's site?

That's a nice order! For the Raspberry, add 2 tsp per cup and steep it for a longer time then what it says of the tin. Ditto with the Foxtrot.

Thanks for the tips, Ladytiger! :D I wonder if I should create a chart or something to keep track of things like this.

Heh, you remember. The Foxtrot is also yummy with some honey too.
