This new mug is the love of my life. Seriously, I’ve not used anything else since I got it. As a Southern girl living in Toronto, this behemoth is a dream come true. And it’s huge! Which is awesome, but I would not recommend trying a new tea in this because if you don’t like it, you’ve still got 25 ounces t drink XD. The infuser is just as big, which is great, but a touch hard to clean. It’s heavy and stable and looks great in my collection. I recommend it to everyone and anyone.

I hope to get it for the summer to cold steep smaller amounts of tea, rather than huge pitchers, for when I just want a few servings.

I’m cold steeping in it right now!

Actually, yeah, that’s a pretty good size for cold steeps since I sometimes find my 2L jug too much (and always feel obligated to fill it all the way up). Yet, I can’t help but associate mason jars with hipsters haha.

I like the idea of this, but the 25 oz thing makes me hesitate! I guess you’d probably run through more leaf this way because after drinking 25oz, you will NOT want to resteep and do it again! But for teas I won’t resteep anyways…. it could be really awesome!

Roswell Strange

Meh, I hardly ever resteep as is. I usually only resteep if someone else suggests it, for some (most) of my oolongs, and some whites. I dislike greens – so it’s weird enough when I crave one cup a green tea, two is just too much. I’m definitely burning through more leaf (easier sipdowns) this way, though.

Cavocorax

Hmmm… You bring up some very good points. I may succumb to this tomorrow when I hit a DAVIDsTEA! (I’m buying 20g samples of tea or my sister in law who’s just getting started! So exciting!)

Do it, do iiiiiit. You won’t regret it. And eeee, isn’t it fun to bring someone into tea? My friends call me a “tea pusher” because I’ve done it so often.

Cavocorax

Haha. And yes, it’s AWESOME to bring someone into tea, even if it’s for the very selfish reason that I want someone else to talk tea with.

And I succumbed. I totally succumbed. :D

Ah, tea. My love for you is ever changing. At my last update, I was all about the rooibos and now I hardly drink it. I only occasionally had an oolong and now I have one just about every day. I’ve learned the art of resteeping and coldbrewing and kombucha. I have a lovely little tea pet named…well, I haven’t decided on a name for him yet. I also have four live pets, a tabby cat named Rosabella Francis (Bella for short), a ginger cat named Orange Julius Pekoe (Pekoe), a white and grey cat named Earl Jean Grey (Earlie), and a red foot tortoise named Da Hong Pao (Pao). So if you see me referring to my girls, I don’t have kids, just animals.

As for tea, I love oolongs, herbals, and black tea. Since I am no longer working, I no longer feel the constant need for a mate energy boost, though I do still reach for it from time to time. I also drink less matcha, though I do throw a spoonful or two in when I’m making smoothies. Most of my tea I drink coldbrewed, and since I discovered coldbrewed rooibos was giving me headaches, I’m drinking less and less of it. Straight pu-erh is not a thing I enjoy, but there are a few flavored blends I like. Greens are still too finicky for me to bother with hot, but they make great cold brews.

I am by no means a tea purist. I greatly enjoy flavored teas and I put sugar in all of my teas. It’s just how I do.

I think I’m going to name my tea pet Mr. Turtle. Even though he’s a tortoise.
