I am chiming in a bit late after a busy day. This far in my online tea order, I've ordered from a few domestic vendors and only one international one. I like to sample teas so as long as I can understand the language on the site, the shipping is reasonable, and the reputation is good, I am willing to try the vendor in most cases.
Today was busy, but in a good way so my tea consumption was at minimum. I started off with a mug of White Peach for breakfast, but spent the rest of the day shopping with my mother so I didn't have time for any other tea until now. The shopping was a lot of fun and it was nice to spend some quality time with Mom after being away at college.
Yesterday, I had a much better day in respect to tea. We had my grandparents and aunt and uncle over for dinner. Everyone else wanted coffee while we waited for things to finish cooking so I decided to brew up a small pot of Sakura Sencha for myself. To my surprise, my grandfather asked for a cup of it too. I had forgotten that he was a hot tea drinker, though he hasn't gotten beyond bagged teas. Later on when we ate dinner, he requested an oolong so I made a pot of White Tip Oolong for the two of us. It made my night to be able to share my teas with him.
Now, I am finishing up my evening with Vanilla Rooibos.
