10 tasting notes

I got one of these in gray, and I love it. I use it all the time for loose-leaf tea when I’m just brewing for myself.

The clear walls allow me to see how the tea is brewing, but because they’re double walled I can still hold it even when it’s filled with steaming hot water. The tea filter is big enough to give the tea leaves a bit of room to expand, and does a great job filtering out pretty much everything solid. The lid also doubles as a holder for the filter, which means I don’t have to search around for a spare plate or something to rest it on or worry about dripping liquid everywhere. And it’s easy to clean. :)

Bio

When I was a child, my mother used to make me tea: mainly herbal blends (chamomile, etc.) and flavored black teas (all fruit flavored). She also introduced me to Good Earth tea (Original Flavor). Occasionally, we’d also drink jasmine tea. We’d add a spoon full of honey to our tea and drink it together.

When I first tasted a plain non-herbal, non-flavored tea, I thought it was the grossest thing I’d ever tasted. It was horribly bitter, tannic, and I almost spat it out.

Later, someone introduced me to an artfully brewed oolong tea — which was nothing at all like the bitter, tannic vileness I’d drank several years earlier. This was… Light. Delicate. Amazing!

Since then, I’ve been trying out different teas here and there, and experimenting with brewing techniques as best I can. I still have a weakness for herbal blends and fruit flavored teas — and a cup of Good Earth is always welcome — but I’ve been spending more time drinking whites, greens, and oolongs.
