February White2tea Club! If you haven’t been following my previous reviews for White2tea Club, it is a curated $29.99 monthly tea box. The teas are awesome quality with mostly pu’er, but also some oolongs and blacks. For this month the teas are two Bulang pu’er – 2012 Bulang Raw 100 gram mini cake and 15 gram sample of Spring Laochatuo from Bulang and an Orchid Dancong oolong sample to make this month less bulang crazy. I was super excited when I saw what I got this month from White2Tea. I’ve had bulang pu’er a few times, mostly stuff aged from late 2000s and … Continue reading, hoot!
I savored this month’s White2Tea monthly tea subscription club – all the teas sounded great to me! For the White2Tea club, every month you get teas that are curated by White2tea. These teas are samples from their current line up, previews to new teas to their shop, as well as some private stash and discoveries. The subscription is month to month, cancel any time. So far, all the teas I’ve received has been pretty good – I recently dropped a bunch of cash for a group order, buying more teas that I received in previous months. Good stuff! For the month of … Continue reading, hoot!
I’m totally late with the White2tea Club December edition. Now that the holidays are over and the relatives have flown home, I finally have time to myself to drink tea by myself. No Dad lurking around with his smelly instant coffee. On the upside, my father put a dent in my spiced tea collection. I was super excited to see the offerings for this month – 2008 Often, a 250 gram sheng/raw puerh tuo with sweet wrapper artwork and a 25 gram sample of Barb’s Breakfast Black. The teas were part of a “Work Horse” theme for the month of December, … Continue reading, hoot!
I have a lot of tea, so much I didn’t buy anything during Black Friday and Cyber Monday, despite the awesome sales. My last tea purchase is the White2Tea Club, a subscription tea of the month club from the awesome White2tea. When I got the package, I was very impressed with the variety I got. I’m late with this review as I took my time, saving drinking these teas for the right day I felt like treating myself. I got around to trying 3 out of 4 of the teas for this review. Inside the November White2Tea Club: 2014 Yesheng Qiaomu 50gram … Continue reading, hoot!

A little late, but it’s time for the September Simple Loose Leaf Selection Tea Club box! What does drinking tea in September mean to you? I heard from a tea seller once that September is the slowest month for them – is it as everyone is busy with a new school year? The weather is still a little warm for that heavy black tea, but too cool for that pitcher of iced tea? For me, I’m drinking the same amount of tea I always drink – refilling my tea cup all day. Anyways, this month for Simple Loose Leaf Selection Tea Club my … Continue reading, hoot!
Steepster Select is a monthly fine teas sampler. At this time, for $24.95 a month, you’ll get a nice box of tea sent to you. In that box of tea, two servings each of 5 different teas, or 10 servings. I was very excited to see Steepster revived Steepster Select. I love Steepster for keeping track of my teas, tea discussions, learning more about tea and meeting other tea lovers. By the way, I’m Awkward Soul on Steepster – if you are a member, be sure to say hi! My Steepster Select box arrived while I was on vacation, so this is a little late of a review. Let’s unbox! … Continue reading, hoot!
