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).

I thought my profile needed a facelift, so here we go:

My obsession with tea really started around October 2012 when I discovered DavidsTea. Before that, I had the occasional cup and enjoyed going out to afternoon tea with my mom. I was really into An Afternoon to Remember’s creme brulee tea, since they had an afternoon tea place at that time, which has since closed…so sad and I haven’t found a good replacement.

So, I kinda went nuts when I discovered both DavidsTea and Lupicia in the SF mall, and I still frequent them, though my tastes have substantially changed over time from wanting to try all the teas to being a bit more particular.

Once I discovered steepster, literally by looking up reviews of a DavidsTea tea, I was hooked! So many tea companies I never heard of and everything sounding so delicious!

I found I still love dessert teas, like flavored black teas, but I also really enjoy oolong (both green and roasted). I occasionally enjoy flavored rooibos and white teas. I’ve had a rough time with puerh, and still think it tastes like leather. Recently, after having some really amazing teas from Teavivre, I can now say I love unflavored Chinese black teas and green teas.

Favorite tea companies right now include: Teavivre, Golden Moon, Butiki, Lupicia, and DavidsTea.

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! :)
