After not using this for a year or so because I couldn’t get the replacement filter to go in, I tried pouring boiling water in with the filter dropped in and let it sit for awhile. Then drained it, and the filter was pliable enough to pop in. I swear I had tried it back then, but it didn’t work. Oh well.

It worked well to get me into using loose teas back when I first picked it up, so I would say I got my money’s worth and it was useful for that. But these days, I don’t find it any harder to toss some leaves in the metal basket of one of my teapots and pouring in water. I am dirtying just as many items either way.

Plus, I’m trying to get away from plastic foodstuffs, so we will see how much I use it now that it has a new filter. I am contemplating taking it to work and leaving it there. We’ll see.

When I was a very young child, I swallowed an ice cube whole. It got stuck in my throat, and my mother had me drink hot tea to melt it away. That started a love affair with tea that has never abated.

I dabbled with Celestial Seasonings and other grocery store teabags for awhile, in my young and foolish days. But a few years ago, I received a tea of the month subscription from Adagio, and I found that there was a whole other world of tea out there that I had never experienced.

I love drinking tea, and I love the personal ceremony of making a glass or pot of tea for myself. It’s like a meditation.
