Yay! Woo Hoo! Yippee!!!
It arrived! It actually arrived about 3 hours ago. I was a little scared that it wouldn’t arrive today even though the FedEx tracking said it was charted for delivery today, because they’re repaving our road out front next week and they were doing some preliminary/prep work and the mailman was too wimpy to forage through the fray to deliver the mail today… so I thought FedEx would follow suit. I am glad that FedEx didn’t let the construction stop them today … I really didn’t want to have to wait until next Wednesday to get my package!
I am so happy. I brewed my last bit of Dawn from The Simple Leaf to christen it. It is so easy. I love that I don’t have to do ANYTHING except add water & tea and set the controls. Awesome. I am not going to rate it yet, though, I want to use it for at least a week or so before I rate it so that I’ve had time to brew a bunch of tea in it. I probably won’t brew a lot of Oolongs in this (or Yellow) because I prefer using the gaiwan and short steeps. For that matter, I probably won’t brew pu-erh in this for the same reason. But, since the majority of tea that I drink is black, green and white, this will get plenty of use as a tea maker, and for the other teas, it will get use as a kettle. I am happy that I can finally retire my good ole electric kettle – it’s been a good kettle, and it deserves some time off.
