This tea is very delicious, green, sage-y, and wonderous, especially with my new Perfect Teaspoon!

I have some sad news, though. I noticed my desk was wet and … why was my brewer cup making water beads all over it, and … hmmm, there’s a puddle around my cup and… this is so weird! and… imagine this going on for THREE HOURS!!!! and then I finally figured out my cup is cracked! I remember bashing it when I washed it but didn’t see any cracks at the time. Silly, silly me.

I think I’m going to use it as a planter.

Wahhhhh!

D’oh! That planter idea is some thing I wouldn’t think of. I have a cup that I broke the handle off of. It was my favorite cup and currently holds pens for me but a plant sounds cuter.

I saw a post where a beloved cup that cracks in Japan is mended with gold. The more it is used and the more it cracks, the more it is patched with gold and therefore becomes a new thing of beauty and value. Hmmm, maybe you could just flux it and solder over the crack!

Awee dang sorry.

Missy – I saw it on Steepster! Someone (Angrboda?) had a cracked teapot and it was suggested to use it as a planter. I think herbs or cat grass might work!

I really like the idea of an herb planter. Mint here I come!

Angrboda

Yes, that was me! My Roy Kirkham fine bone china. I’m still mourning the loss, and since today is wednesday (and I’m off work) I’ve suddenly found myself faced with a tea making problem. I’ve only got the large pot and the middle-sized pot that we normally use for rooibos to choose from. scratches head

So yeah, I feel with you. Have a commiseration hug. hug

Rabs

Oh so sorry!!!! ::hugs::

Bio

I love to cook, bake, read, paint, knit, do needlework, and garden. I need my coffee, but I LOVE my tea. I work at an Art School, and attend a large public university doing post-bac work (my BA is in English). I’m interested in the liminal spaces between art and craft, the academic and the practical, the individual and community, and the old and the new. I’m currently exploring these ideas through the disciplines of education, literature, history, and psychology.

I enjoy writing tasting notes, but have decided not to numerically rate teas as of 9/14/10. For an explanation, see my looooong tasting note about Mountain Malt from the Simple Leaf.

My favorites:
Chinese black teas
A good “milk and sugar” English style black
Earl Grey (classic, and in all variations!)
Vanilla teas (classic, and in all variations!)
Jasmine, Rose, Violet and other froofy, flowery teas!
An Occasional Oolong
Flavored Rooibos
Herbal Tisanes
