reviewed Carry Travel Mug by DAVIDsTEA
1048 tasting notes

I needed a tea travelling mug that could hold in heat (or cold) well – so i decided to get DT’s new exclusive carry travel mug.

It indeed holds temperature very well for hours and hours, no matter what temperature it is outside. The strainer part is very cool – there is a basket as well as a filter under the lip – so you can drink using either or both. It is also leak proof!

my issues:
The lip is on the fat side to drink from, so not that comfortable to drink especially if the tea was steeped with boiling water. I do have a small mouth, so maybe others will have a different experience.

The secret compartment to stash tea does not keep my tea dry. It does okay if the travelling mug is stationary, but if its rolling around in your bag the leaves will get wet.

I have their 12oz timolino and I almost always brew my tea in a pot before pouring into my timolino. And I too have a small mouth and I find that the lip of it is on the thicker side, so I always drink straight from the timolino itself.
It’s a nice mug! And I love their timolinos so much, I gave the burgandy travel mug to my sister and she loves it as well!

I tried sipping out of the body itself and totally burnt my face! This thing keeps tea really hot! I was looking at the zojirushi ones at the Tea Expo and but felt they had too many working parts to open the lid and locking buttons.

Bio

I’m a crafty knitter and crocheter that loves to work on a project and drink tea. I worked as a counsellor and I chain-drink tea to keep me calm and grounded.

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 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.
My recommended tea shops:
Mandala Tea
Steep City Teas
Butiki Teas
DAVIDsTea
Della Terra Teas
Lupicia
Verdant Tea
Yunnan Sourcing
52 Teas / Zoomdweebies
Yunomi.us
Red Leaf Tea
New Mexico Tea Co
Bluebird Tea Co
The Persimmon Tree

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

I have a husband and a bunny who both hate tea. More for me!!!! MUUAHAHAHAHAAA
