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.
