I made this horrible mistake of leaving my tea and steeper at home when I went to work. With a 10 hour day ahead of me I had no idea what to do. Then
I remembered that our student helper had bought us the Sweet Indulgences set when he left. So, that solved the tea crisis. . . but what on earth would I use to infuse it? All I had was my timolino and NO infuser with it!
My inner CaveMama leapt out and I decided to use a triangle coffee filter.
I would not recommend this at all. The paper is incredible thick and it took like 10 minutes just to fill my mug. BUT, desperate times call for desperate measures.
Now, there was only this tea and very small amounts of Jessie’s Tea left. Not only does that not have caffeine, but I just plain don’t like it. This was a decent tea, all things considered, the peach was nice.
I wouldn’t have picked under normal circumstances though.

I hate it when you get tea blocked. Good recovery though!

LOL! “Tea Blocked”
At the end of the day I found a packet of Della Terra’s Chocolate Chai Puerh, would have rather had that.

Coffee filters are my last resort too in those situations.

Normally I have David’s Tea filters in a bag in my purse, but those were at home too! I could have drank store brand bags of English Breakfast, I felt that would be worst.

Profile

Bio

There are few things in life that I enjoy more than a good cup of tea and the company of my dogs.
I’m a down to earth person very true to my Virgo roots. I own two Boxers, Octane (male, 6 years) and Rally Rims (female, 3 years). I do not breed or show, they are an integral part of my family. I also have a loving husband in the Canadian Military and a beautiful daughter who amazes me with her wit and intelligence everyday.
I love Autumn, for it’s colour, smell and general ambiance.
I’m just a girl, looking for a good cup of tea.
