After being content with teabags for years, a gift of a Tetsuba (Teavana) prompted the broadening of new curiosities and experiences for me. I am open and excited to learn more about this lovely world of tea.
EXPERIENCE & RATINGS
Kindly take what I say with a grain of salt. Most of the time, I don’t know what I’m doing as I’m still learning. So I try to give a new tea a number of tries before I judge it.
I would love to try a proper white tea. At present, I have tried Silver Yin Zhen Pearls by Teavana and have been disappointed. I suspect human error on my part but seek to try other variations.
I’m also looking for a strong Earl Grey, reminiscent of a brew I tried at a coffee cart in California. I tried Stash, and it was a bit too light for me. I heard Twinnings was once good but no longer. (Drat!) Picard got me started on this tea, so it has been a long search for me. XD

Ginger rhizome (1t grated) with local raw honey (1T) and lemon juice (1T). I double the lemon juice and honey when I feel especially sick.
- Pumpkin Spice tea from Adagio holiday gift set. Just.. No.
- possibly a gaiwan set
MY HUMBLE EQUIPMENT :
- Large pot to boil water
- Brita Filter Pitcher
- tea kettle strainer (replaced tea ball strainer)
