Last night I went bowling with a group of friends. I’ve only ever bowled candlepin (little balls), but most of the other people had bowled regular. I think candlepin is a MA thing… ah well. I wasn’t the worst, so that’s okay.

We all came back to our room afterwards, and I (of course) offered everyone tea. My friend Ana said to me “Hey, can you show me how to drink not-bagged tea?”

I was so proud.

I brewed a pot of this for us, and she loved it. Another tea convert…

There’s a DAVIDsTea 3 hours away, just over the Canadian border. I sense a road trip in our future.

I might could handle your kind of bowling. I can barely Wii bowl conventionally ;)

Michelle

Haha I’m awful at Wii bowling!

I’ve noticed that once someone tried loose tea, they immediately become loose tea drinkers. haha :)

Michelle

True! It’s just SO much better than bagged.

Whispering Pines Tea Company

I think that bagged tea CAN be REALLLLY good, but it’s rare. Most people that drink bagged tea have a mouthgasm when they try loose tea, probably because they have been drinking mainstream teas (horrid, haha).

Michelle

No, it’s true. I drink bagged tea too, it has its place. But you can’t beat the depth of loose.

Whispering Pines Tea Company

Yep! I also enjoy (maybe a bit too much?) the whole process of brewing a single cup of loose tea. It’s one of those practices that can turn a bad day around, just taking your time, making a cup and relaxing with it, maybe even having a personal tea party! :)
