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.
