I brought this one with me when I went out today. It’s delicious (as always), but it loses something in the travel mug. I’m really preferring my 12 oz ceramic mug from sbux, even though it doesn’t seal at all. Too bad I haven’t found a ceramic travel mug with no silicone bits I have to touch, and a (mostly) sealing lid!

In other news, I made delicious delicious fries today for dinner. I used avocado oil (takes higher temps than olive oil), and made a dipping sauce with tahini, garlic, lime juice, S&P. So good. Do it. Please. I’m going to try with ghee at some point. :)

The fries were SO GOOD, but now I’m SO FULL. Food coma time. Maybe I should have some puerh. :)

Food comas are exactly when I have the pine tree tea from Verdant hah!

Fjellrev

They sound awesome!

If you ever did find a ceramic to-go mug that doesn’t have any silicone… let me know? I don’t mind silicone, but my husband HATES it. I got him a Cosco brand one that’s metal and plastic, but he said the metal gives it a funny taste. So… I’m still looking.

Check Starbucks. Occasionally they have them, with hard plastic lids. The lids just don’t close. I do like mine a lot, but I’d like to be able to put it in my bag so I can have hands free when I’m standing on the bus!

Bio

Black teas are my favourite, although I do drink the occasional green tea. I am exploring herbal and fruity teas for summer icing and winter evenings, and oolong and pu erh are new and exciting… although I do not like a tea that tastes mostly of seaweed.

No: Spearmint or peppermint, licorice root, gluten (cookie bits, wheat, rye, barley, I’m OK with oats)

After sending my first box to the USA, bubble-envelope swaps are where it’s at.

When I rate, my ratings are based on the little faces, and depend on what face I make when I sip the tea! :)

Also: A map of tea places in Vancouver. I’ve been to some of them, but not a lot. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!
