Time to Tea Off!


#1

#2

What’s your favorite tea?


#3

PG Tips. I like to let it get nice and strong. It’s good plain, it’s good with milk, and it’s good with sugar.


#4

does not list how many onces per cup?


#5

from the orange set: “The teapot holds 40oz and the mugs hold 10oz”


#6

Black: Earl Grey

Green: Gunpowder or Jasmine

Yours?


#7

My favorite is a toss up between earl grey and Irish breakfast.

I know I want one of these sets, I just don’t know which color to get. The white has that “matches anything” factor, but the blue, orange and yellow ones are all such happy colors.


#8

Tea is a happy time. I’d go for colors.


#9

My tea stash is the stuff made of LEGEND, friends. I am very fond of PG tips (it’s a precise little brew!) or most of the greens from here at home, and Choice Organic Northwest Blackberry at work (which I will only drink at work for some reason).


#10

My favorite place to order loose tea is adagio.com I always get super yummy tea and the prices are pretty good.

If I’m in the mood to splurge a bit for a treat, I go for the yunnan golden curls. Pricey, but oh so delicious. I’m sure if you could condense Heaven into a flavor, this would be it.


#11

I vote for colors, too. A word to the wise: I ordered the orange set last woot-off, and it was a little bit more sherbet-y than I was expecting. Not enough to stop my plan to paint it for Halloween, or anything.

Another word to the wise: I just finally took out all the mugs and found that one has a tiny chip in the lip. I hope they have single mugs floating around the warehouse.

That all being said, I’m idly considering buying a yellow and a white set so I can paint them all with candy corn and mix/match.


#12

I have eyed the PG tips both here and abroad, but never taken the plunge. Worthwhile, you say? Will it ruin me for all other black tea?


#13

service@woot.com plus I’d love to see pictures, because Halloween is my favorite holiday ever.


#14

On the kettle:

I fail to see how the pour spout lever fits in the “palm of your hand” - looks like you have to push the lever down manually before the pour.

Also, amazon has for $43.95 with free shipping. Not a great deal. Many other colors available as well. Maybe you could match your spooky plates.


#15

First time I laid eyes on the Breville tea maker ( http://tinyurl.com/9hqfncj ) and especially the price ($250), I thought: “someday that’s gonna be on woot for less than a Benjamin.”

I thought today might be the day, but…


#16

Tea is just as stainy on your teeth as coffee, for whatever it’s worth. The Britons didn’t get that way by themselves (ZING!). But really, it’s true.


#17

I like the clear colander(?) in the photo, but don’t notice it for sale in the deals. Is it a tease?


#18

I think it is just a tease, I thought it was interesting as well.

Does anyone know of good online sites to buy tea that are cheaper than teavana? I know of adagio, which has yet to send me any free samples when i sign up for them every time deals woot posts about it. One with good lease leaf teas would be best! cheers!

Also, when are we getting a tea woot? i’m dying for one and not only selling kettles and decanters and such, but the tea leaves themselves too! yum!


#19

Just a warning that teavana tends to overcharge like crazy for even the most basic teas. Cross reference against adagio or, if you can get past the hideous design, Upton Tea imports.


#20

I’m an Adagio tea buyer as well. Teavana always seems really overpriced to me, and when I go in their stores (not often, they’re not close by), they’re really pushy.
I’m a basic English or Irish breakfast drinker, typically. I also love a good chai now and again, and I’m starting to appreciate some oolongs. I love Adagio’s sampler packages to introduce me to new teas.
