Sweet!!!! Wow, I am honored to have been mentioned in the article! Great photos. Funny that I drank that tea all day yesterday. I’m going to have to put some in reserve so I don’t drink it all away :) Can’t wait to see that yixing pot in a few years as the patina develops and evolves!!!

TeaBrat

Yo, Amy! You must have gotten some new looks at your blog. A few tea customers and friends said they read your post today about your new pot and the Phatty Cake.

Garret

@Skulleigh – we named it Phatty Cake because the day we took delivery of them, a customer saw one as we unpackaged them and said: “What a little fatty cake!” And the name stuck, we just changed a couple of letters :) Glad it made you smile, too!

TeaBrat

Hurray!

Profile

Bio

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
