I did see on Taiwan Tea Crafts Facebook page that the sale will extend through today (Monday 9/30, California, U.S.A., Midnight Pacific time) if anyone didn't get their order in.

I agree completely.
And TTC, unlike many others, prorate the price of their sample bags.
If the rest of this order is as nice as this one I'll be delighted.
The outer mood fills the tea room, the coming Autumn, this subtle way the world changes, shifts and fills in, or empties...like the tea cup before me as I drink. The candle on the table is still while the world outside is active with motion. Still and active, I hold both in my mind as I sip TTC's 2013 Long Feng Xia wulong: it's golden liquor, the buttery, fruit, flower, herb scent of the steeped leaves poured for 8 rounds (with 93deg.C water to compensate for the thicker walls of the stone pot) from my 150ml stone xishi pot into Petr Novak glazed cups. Many thoughts come, blowing through with the gusts. Friends, tasks, sensations, awarenesses, images....all pass through.
