Yum, this does pretty good in a travel mug! Speaking of which, I might be needing a new one soon, my current timolino is getting tainted by different teas on the rubber seal and makes most of my teas taste a bit more off.

Yeah I’ve had a bit of trouble with my timoline. Everything tastes off, but I don’t really want to give up and just use it for coffee. :|

noooo i love my timolino! i don’t want there to be a problem :( maybe i’ll soak the lid parts in some natural cleanser on a regular basis? to help keep this from happening? humph.

Would baking soda help? Then airing it?

Cavocorax

That’s my next move!

I’ve tried baking soda a bit but might not have left it on long enough, I’ll have to try it again sometime. I absolutely love this mug haha it has lasted over a year with heavy use, so I might just buy a new one, the investment is definitely worth it. It’s super annoying that it’s just the rubber pieces that retain the smells of different teas, I’d definitely try soaking it regularly Shmiracles, try to prevent it if possible! :)

Hello all, I am a happily employed electrical engineer (read:NERD :D), who is a bit obsessed with tea! I discovered loose tea in 2011, DAVIDsTEA in 2012 and it took off from there. I really started drinking/enjoying tea because it was excellent to take to class in the morning and because I can’t handle coffee! (unless it’s a really good cappuccino or latte, or decent decaf haha)

I enjoy a variety of teas – current favorites being ripe and raw pu’erhs, chinese black teas and herbal/green rooibos blends. I also enjoy white, green, and oolong teas, although I tend to drink them more in the warmer months. I have also tried matcha and guayusa, but I don’t drink them too often as I am a bit sensitive to caffeine. As a result I don’t drink black teas as often as I used to, but in moderation I can still enjoy a wide variety of teas.

Oh, and I have a severe peanut allergy and try to avoid most other nuts, just to be safe. Limits my tea choices a bit, but that’s ok. However I have tried almonds and found out I can eat them, so I have been trying a few teas with them in them.

95+: Absolute favorite, will try to always have it in stock, and when I don’t I pine over it!
90-94: Awesome teas, will probably purchase again a few times
80-89: Very good tea, may restock at some point
70-79: happy to have tried and will gladly finish, but not restock
60-69: not horrible, but not the best, will finish if I have some though
50-59: not a favorite, probably will have a tough time finishing the bag
-50: yuck. I don’t want to have it ever again.
