OMG! I LOVE this thing!!! It’s exactly what I’ve been looking for! I used to brew my tea in the morning and throw it into a plastic tumbler from Starbucks. But it always made the tea taste funny.

When I ran into this double-walled glass tumbler at DAVIDsTEA, I knew I had found my one true love. It doesn’t retain the flavor of any previous teas and is super easy to clean and maintain. Plus, I don’t burn my fingers even after pouring scalding hot water into it because of the double-walls. The bamboo lid has a squishy but durable plastic underside that keeps the tea from leaking when the tumbler is jossled around.

The only con I have (and this is very minor) is that since it’s clear, I sometimes get odd looks from the security guards when I walk into work holding a glass container filled with an amber-colored liquid. Even if I just brew a black tea and add milk, they think it looks funny! So, I’m always explaining myself.

But overall, I am in absolute love!! *Swoon.

Entering the sweet blissful world of tea aromas!

Having discovered this website at the end of July 2011, I’m so excited to share my tea adventures with all of you! I grew up with my grandmother serving Twining’s English Breakfast with cream and sugar.

But on a trip to Seattle in 2010, I stumbled into a Chinese teashop and tried my first oolong tea. I was forever changed! I embarked on a startling new love for green and white teas.

With a world of teas to discover, I was inspired to keep a tea journal to record my thoughts and new favorites. Let’s get brewing!


My ratings are completely subjective and 100% my opinion. All ratings are given in relation to each other (ie. teas are rated in the order of my enjoyment of them). Therefore, my ratings will constantly change as I try more teas.


I love swapping!!! If you see something in my cupboard you’d like to try, just send me a message. If you’d like to trade, anything on my shopping list will do or feel free to send something else entirely. I’m willing to try almost anything (although I’m not really a fan of honeybush, red rooibos, pu’erh, Lapsang Souchong, & banana-flavored teas).
