drank The Earl's Garden by DAVIDsTEA
1212 tasting notes

It’s being held hostage in my travel mug. I can’t get the top to open and I can’t get it to ACTUALLY open either. Cries. I managed a sweet few sips out of it because it leaks…time to find a new mug.

Anyone got any good options that DEFINITELY don’t leak if you follow directions? Followed the directions on this one to vacuum seal it and instead it locked up the entire mechanism. So one that is leak proof and doesn’t do that is all I want in life right now.

OKAY so I just finally got the mug open…with a hammer. Saved the tea of course, it was still somewhat hot! But somehow a lot of tea went through the infuser so it was not very tasty. I figured I’d add some coconut milk creamer, so I gave it a quick whirl in the microwave to make up for the heat loss and I am sipping happy.

It’s a bit stronger than I normally drink it, to the point it’s hard to get any berry notes. Thanks to the time it took to finally drink it, the bergamot is a lot stronger and the black tea is probably slightly oversteeped. No problems though. I think for the time being I’ll switch back to the smaller travel mug I got from Teavana until I find something I like better again.

Oh no! What a tease your thermos is!

I did get it free but I expect something slightly less taunting, especially coming from a car company!

Timolinos are great, and I recently got a… Contigo(?) mug from Costco that appears to work quite well as well. I’m very impressed, and it was 1/3 of the cost (no infuser basket though).
