Gah! For some reason my browser wasn’t letting me access steepster over the last day or so. It was driving me nuts, I didn’t realize how much time I spent on this site!
Anyway, yesterday we spent some time with my in-laws, who just returned from Nova Scotia. De’s Aunt was apparently getting rid of some “tea for one” teapots (you know the kind with the teapot on top and the mug on the bottom?), so my mother in law snagged them for us, which was very kind, especially since they were flying. I’ve always avoided this kind of teapot because if I’m going to just make enough tea for one cup, why dirty a teapot over it? But I am in love…I’ll have to get De to take a picture for me. The cup is somewhat shallow, but wide and my tea cools to drinking temperature much faster when in the cup, something I need. And my pot holds enough for about two cups of tea, so it works out beautifully for me. I love this pot…I’ll have to try the other one too.
That all being said, I think I’m going to start my own tea blog for things like this. I always feel like my reviews are too wordy and more story than review. This way I’ll have a central place for my stories and my reviews and my recipes.
I still love to hate this tea. After careful consideration, I’ve decided not to place an order with Harney and pick it up from my parents in the States when I visit them in August. I just…yeah, I still have no desire to support them…though I can’t say I’ll be able to resist if we duck into a B&N and see this tea there. My willpower…she is weak.
