From Art of Tea

Art of Tea is proud to share with you the best first flush Darjeeling we have ever had the pleasure of tasting: Margaret’s Hope! We were so impressed by this very special tea that we had it air flown in immediately and we can’t wait for you to experience it! We guarantee you will never taste another Darjeeling quite like this one. This amazing tea is bright and refreshing with notes of muscatel grapes, leaving behind a crisp and clean finish. Only 30% oxidized, this tea was fired only once and is from the first picking of the first flush!

This tea is very delicious, green, sage-y, and wonderous, especially with my new Perfect Teaspoon!

I have some sad news, though. I noticed my desk was wet and … why was my brewer cup making water beads all over it, and … hmmm, there’s a puddle around my cup and… this is so weird! and… imagine this going on for THREE HOURS!!!! and then I finally figured out my cup is cracked! I remember bashing it when I washed it but didn’t see any cracks at the time. Silly, silly me.

I think I’m going to use it as a planter.

Wahhhhh!

D’oh! That planter idea is some thing I wouldn’t think of. I have a cup that I broke the handle off of. It was my favorite cup and currently holds pens for me but a plant sounds cuter.

I saw a post where a beloved cup that cracks in Japan is mended with gold. The more it is used and the more it cracks, the more it is patched with gold and therefore becomes a new thing of beauty and value. Hmmm, maybe you could just flux it and solder over the crack!

Awee dang sorry.

Missy – I saw it on Steepster! Someone (Angrboda?) had a cracked teapot and it was suggested to use it as a planter. I think herbs or cat grass might work!

Missy

I really like the idea of an herb planter. Mint here I come!

Angrboda

Yes, that was me! My Roy Kirkham fine bone china. I’m still mourning the loss, and since today is wednesday (and I’m off work) I’ve suddenly found myself faced with a tea making problem. I’ve only got the large pot and the middle-sized pot that we normally use for rooibos to choose from. scratches head

So yeah, I feel with you. Have a commiseration hug. hug

Oh so sorry!!!! ::hugs::
