(A steep time of 8 minutes or more means that I’ve made it in my Rhapsody… so it steeps as long as it takes me to drink it!)

Oh my gosh! I’m going to Cincinnati in June and I just checked out Essencha’s website! I may not actually bring much tea with me on vacation;)

I love them! Their prices are generally better than Teavana’s (my other major expense), and their customer service is amazing. They ship their teas in tins, and I ordered four 8oz tins to use as part of Christmas gifts, and when they arrived, each of the tins had some significant denting as a result of the packing. I sent an e-mail just to let them know, and got a reply from someone’s Blackberry on a Friday night saying that they’d get four new empty tins out to me first thing in the morning, plus a $5 coupon for my next purchase. They’re wonderful!

(Adding clarification that the 4 8oz tins I originally bought as gifts were full of tea—not just empty! And they sent replacement empty tins.)

lol I knew what you meant. But I wasn’t talking about ordering from there, I was talking about going there! Unfortunately it’s 8.5 miles from my hotel…:(

Profile

Bio

I’m a writer and a documentary filmmaker, and also a mama to one 13 month-old boy—with another baby on the way this spring! I’m pretty much caffeine-free these days, and learning to love the Rooibos. I grew up in Wisconsin and after 5 years in Chicago and 11 in NYC, I now live in a ghost town in the desert. And I love it.

Location

the high desert hills of northern New Mexico
