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.

I use mine almost every day. Any leftover tea goes into the pitcher overnight for iced tea the next day. The basket feature makes a real difference, I find. And ohhhh, having just the right temp for oolong … I am a happy tea fiend. I haven’t had a bad experience yet.

Enjoy!

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:
http://sororiteasisters.com

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:
http://www.teareviewblog.com

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.

*

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
