i got my ingenuitea pot delivered from UK today :) had to celebrate that with few cups of some nice loose tea. i was in the mood for oolong.

first of all the cup. its made from some kind of plastic but looks really firm. seams unbreakable. its quite thick and keeps warmth perfectly. i spilled some water around the place till i figured how exactly it works. but i love it.
basically if its on a flat surface it wont spill (don’t use the bed its bumpy enough to let some water/tea out use the stand). as soon as you put it on a glass the glass pushes the bottom part which opens the valve and tea starts pouring down. simple.
filter keeps all the little pieces of loose tea in the pot. you get crystal clear tea out of it. once u pour the water in the cups tea leaves remain inside wet but the pot still keeps all the flawors in.

the second steep was just as strong and tasty as the first one. that will lift my tea rating a bit. i like oolong because it tastes so simple and always quite alike.

born with a bit of a restless, curious and exploring spirit ;) love to travel and i do it a lot lately. enjoy good food and drinks. love trying out new stuff. just about to start exploring the world of teas and i’m really enthusiastic about it ;)

EDIT 4 months later:
still a n00b here but starting to get it ;) i try to buy loose tea but i got a lot of teabags too cuz it’s easier to find here. from not liking black tea ended up love it. green can be quite good too but waiting for more real ones to try. whites are sometimes awesome, sometimes not, rooibos and fruity blends are a good replacement for juices… and so on… still excited about every new tea… loving it more every day :D

since my favorite hobby is photography i take photos whenever something is interesting. including my tea making process…

Rating system (i’ll try to use it from now on):
