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!

My tastes in tea have changed, so I should update this as well. I find myself leaning more towards rooibos and herbals, if only for their great ability to chill in my travel mug for hours and not get weird on me. When I have time to properly brew a cuppa, I lean towards white teas (which I only steep for 30 seconds) and black teas (which only get 2-3 minutes from me). I cannot stand green teas, they’re too fiddly for my tastes. Oolongs are great, but a bit fiddly as well. However, I love watching oolongs open up in my looseleaf brewer. I’m slowly discovering mates and falling for them…there are many I look forward to trying!

So…yeah. That’s me and my tea!
