I didn't get a sample in my order. :( I was going to order some too, but I had been reading around that they were getting sent out with the orders so I didn't. Oh well, maybe next time.

I had some of this for my morning tea today. Yum! I was a little worried it would be too sweet, but nope. Wonderful! Good blend, xine!

I love this tea! I have to admit when I saw it in the box, I thought, "well, I can see this is one I won't drink much of..." :oops: Although, it was my first order, so it was a pleasant surprise to find it. But, out of all the tea I ordered, this is in the top three! YUM!

After all this talk & rave reviews, will have to get a sample next time I place an order. Glad to see it listed as one of the regular flavored teas, now. Congrats, Xine! :D

How do you get samples? Do you mean the little 4oz tin?

I think that Adagio included some smaller free samples of Birthday Tea with some of the orders placed earlier this spring, but unfortunately those samples don't seem to be available commercially.

The "samples" are the small, square-ish tins that are typically available with Adagio's non-blended teas (e.g. green, black, oolong, etc.). You can see a six-pack of them here. Adagio typically includes a freebie sample with each order, but you never know what type they will include. (Perhaps someone can advise - is it possible to request a specific sample, or would that be regarded as cheeky, as in, "If you want it, why don't you order it?")

I too was interested in buying a sample-sized order of Birthday Tea, but the Birthday Tea webpage only offers the "standard" size of 4 oz. This seems to be true of all the other blends I checked.

So it seems that Adagio doesn't actually sell the small, sample-sized tins where their blends are concerned. Too bad - I'd try a lot more of their blends if they did! But I did take the plunge on the Birthday Tea, and was glad I did... it's delicious.

I brew it Western style just like any of my black teas... a heaping teaspoon of leaf to 6 oz boiling water, 4 or 5 minute steep, and it's good for at least one more steep.

I have been using 1 level tsp to 8 oz of water, but I think I will try Sarah's western style for more flavor!

ohhh bummer this tea sounds sooooo yummy! They missed my packages recently! No samples other then the Regular Tea Chef on request or with qualifying order.
So how does one get a sample of this one?

I don't think they do samples of Birthday tea unless you get a random surprise sample. :( I'd really like to try this too, but I'm not enough of a fan of flavored teas to order 4oz.
