BIG MUG! 16oz / 463ml! I got the spiffy Brenton Navy Octopus design (spring 2014 design) which is very attractive and tentacled.

The mug is taller than I thought it was, from pictures online. Handle is big and easy to hold, the mug isn’t thick so is easy to sip from.

What I didn’t like is now I have 3 perfect tea infusers. I don’t think I really need anymore and wish I could just buy the mug on its own. The nordic mug came with a bigger infuser than the Perfect Tea Mug’s infuser, and I’m probably going to use this new tea infuser more.

Did you see those awesome tentacle mugs that someone linked on Reddit? It was a guy who linked his tea set up.

This one? http://i.imgur.com/AJ7OpfB.jpg swooon! Hopefully the potter will have some up for sale soon.

Those are SO PRETTY.

Marzipan

Yes they are so neat!

Oh.. I could always use more infusers, but then again, I’m still pretty much a newbie and only have a couple. Hopefully one day I’ll feel like you about it. Maybe they should offer them at a small discount w/o the infuser.

Bio

I’m a tea blogger – The Oolong Owl
www.OolongOwl.com – I do tea reviews, obsessively photograph teas with mischievous crocheted Owls and get tea drunk. I am also a crochet / knitting designer at Awkward Soul Designs.

I was raised on floral oolongs and green teas, mostly “beauty” teas. Early on as a kid, I can guzzle an entire pot of tea (or two) at a Chinese or Japanese restaurant.
These days I like adventurous and interesting tea blends. I’m fearless in trying new teas! I’m into oolong, pu’erh, white, green, black, guayusa, mate and herbals. I’m not into red rooibos but I keep buying it anyway.

The tea brand that got me started into loose leaf teas was DAVIDsTea. I used to live in Vancouver Canada and had access to their shop, however that is now limited since I moved to southern California.

However, the perks of living in the US is ultra cheap, fast shipping! Since then, my tea stash insanely expanded.

Other stuff I’m into that sneaks into my tea notes: Brazilian jiu-jitsu, metal music, drawing, painting, cooking, photography and nail polish.

BTW, my Steepster cupboard is not even close to accurate and I track my teas on a spreadsheet. Last update 512 Teas May 2015.
