I just finished this one, and I have to say: I’m a little sad to see it go. I thoroughly enjoyed it, although it isn’t an “absolute-gotta-have-it-love” There are so many other types of tea out there that I’ve never tried, so I’m not sure if I can justify buying this one again in too much of a hurry. I’ll have to let my cupboard decide. I’m sure I’ll eventually bring home another sample size of this one…it’s just a matter of when. Good thing Davids Tea isn’t too close to my house, otherwise my wallet would be on a permanent diet and my cupboards would be ‘chubby’ with tea.

Oh! I bought myself a new teapot today from IKEA. It’s simple, inexpensive, and I like it. We’re temporarily living in the house I grew up in (because the hubby and I sold our house this past summer, and are very specific about what we want next). In the meantime, a lot of our stuff is packed up in storage, including my favorite teapot. The one at this house is alright, but it leaks when I pour my tea, and I have to use a separate strainer, which can get a little messy. I wasn’t planning on getting another teapot but I was whipping through IKEA to buy some of their frozen meatballs, when I happened upon this cute little number they call RIKLIG http://www.ikea.com/ca/en/catalog/products/90150071/ for $9.99 it just had to come home with me. I’m using it right now. No mess, no fuss – it’s great! I’m sure it’s all in my head, but I could almost swear that the tea tastes even better with this thing.

That’s a really cute teapot for under 10 bucks!

Yes, I’m quite fond of it. The glass is a little thin, so combined with my clumsiness I don’t see it lasting too long. It was too cute to resist, and I just need something to hold me over until I can retrieve my old faithful from storage. I love the fact that this new one is clear, I enjoy watching the tea steep, and it makes me want to get some of those flowering teas.

I was thinking precisely that. I’ve never bought a flowering tea, since I don’t even use a teapot, just an infuser in an opaque mug. But as long as that teapot of yours is still in one piece, I’d definitely rush to get some flowering teas. :D

I’ll have to search Steepster for the one that sounds the most appealing to my taste. Too bad I didn’t include one in my last Teavivre order.

That’s my mug! I’ve never really been a huge fan of Winnie the Pooh, but I like the fact that this mug is more or less clear. Plus, I can’t help but giggle when I say “ewww …I have Pooh on my mug” and people in the room gawk in horror before realizing I’m talking about Winnie. Am I easily amused? heck yeah!

A little something about my interests? – In no particular order, I love tea, makeup, paper crafting (card making), home renovations, and gardening.

As a rule, I tend to drink my tea without adding anything, but if that doesn’t work for me, I indulge in the fact that rules are meant to be broken. Yep! I’m such a rebel…sometimes I even color outside the of lines :P
