Had this in my timolino for the first time because I had to go to a training class for work, and I needed something portable. I tried this tea out in there because someone, maybe Kittenna, suggested it’s good for the travel mug. It did work pretty well. I’ve found that the timolino makes some of my teas taste thinned out. Anyone else experience that?

I just posted about taking this one to work in my travel mug yesterday, I think. :)

And I don’t have a timolino, but I agree that my teas taste much better in my regular mug. However… I’d rather suffer with thinned out teas at work than no teas!

A bit. I like to brew two timolino’s and then pour into a 6oz cup – stays hot and I can properly sip it. Of course this assumes you have room for another cup

Tealizzy

Oh, maybe it was you, Jessie!! I agree…would rather have thin tea than no tea. I wonder why that happens?

Cavocorax – good idea! Kind of like using it as a thermos and pouring into a separate cup!

Kittenna

I think it was probably Jessie, as I’ve only had this one once, though I think it might have been in a Timolino. I definitely do get the “thinner” (muted?) flavour in the travel mug. Even though my Timolino is 12oz., I typically use double the leaf that I would for an 8oz. cup when I’m brewing things up for it.

Cavocorax

Hmm.. doubling the leaf is a good idea too!

Tealizzy

Thanks for the tip Kittenna!

Kittenna, where did you get a 12 oz Timolino??

Cavocorax

DavidsTea? That’s where I got mine.

Kittenna

Yep, the standard Timolino is 12 oz, so I found out. My Contigo mugs are bigger (I want to say 17oz, but that seems excessive, it might be 15).

Another profile facelift! My tastes have changed a lot from when I first discovered loose leaf tea.

I can trace my tea journey back to October 2012, when I discovered DavidsTea. Before that, I had the occasional cup and enjoyed high tea at An Afternoon to Remember, which has since closed.

I went through a period of wanting to try all the teas, and was really into flavored teas, especially dessert blacks, but my tastes have substantially changed over time.

I still enjoy the occasional flavored black or rooibos, but I’m more into unflavored black teas right now and recently, puerh. Chinese black teas are amazing…with their notes of chocolate or sweet potato, who needs a flavored tea? I had a much steeper learning curve when it came to puerh. I used to dump out cups of puerh for tasting like leather. Now, I am really enjoying them. I think it took finding good quality puerh and steeping them gong fu style to really enjoy them.

I also, on occasion, enjoy a good oolong, white, or green tea.

Favorite tea companies right now include: Mandala, Teavivre, Butiki, Golden Moon, Lupicia, and DavidsTea (for teaware mostly).

Just a note: I don’t rate my teas numerically because my iPad doesn’t like the scroll bar. Maybe someday that will change…hint hint, steepster! ;)

P.S. My profile picture is of one of my 2 cats, Holly, who is a little princess but very photogenic, and she loves boxes, including those that bring me tea! :)
