Had a crappy, terrible day andneeded a pick me up. I also wanted to test my DavidsTea travel press (http://www.davidstea.com/accessories/david-s-travel-press). I was told by the girls in store that the press pins the leaves against the bottom of the mug and keeps them from expanding and steeping that way, but I wasn’t sure. I’d never used it for anything but rooibos and forgiving herbals. But DaisyChubb and a few others were curious, so I decided to try it out with this tea, one I have oversteeped before and noticed a difference.

I’m in complete shock, it worked! It’s been in the mug for about an hour now, and it’s not oversteeped. Yay! My winter self is very excited about this.

I still love this tea and it still seems to be doing the trick, though it might help that my wife will be home soon. That always lifts my mood.

I hate the crappy, terrible days! I hope your day gets better and at least you have the weekend ahead :)

DaisyChubb

Yay! Best experiment ever. I hope the rest of your day transforms into the best day ever.
Thanks for trying this out, I’m sold. :)

Yay! Be warned, if you get iced tea in it, the metal shrinks and it does leak a bit.

And my day did get a lot better!

Sorry about the crappy day but thanks for testing out the mug for us. Now to convince hubby I need that mug. We do have an 12th anniversary coming up next weekend. Although I am hoping he gets me an Ipod touch for that.

Now, I do have to put the disclaimer up that as of yet, I’ve only tested it once, though I foresee another test tomorrow when I get up at the buttcrack of dawn to head to work with the wife. But so far, I’m impressed!

Formerly aisling of tea, now you can call me ele .

“You can forgive a murder, but never a mistake while preparing tea.” Chinese proverb

Labels? Here you go: Femme, Wife, Lesbian, Homemaker, Happy. Don’t forget tea fanatic!

New label as of May, 2015: Diabetic. I’m using tea to satisfy my sweet tooth cravings and keep me hydrated without hurting my system or messing with my blood sugar.

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 five! 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), a tuxedo cat (and the only boy in the house) Prince Erik Darien Darjeeling (JiJi) 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 stevia 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.
