I really have to start tackling my sample bin. There are an incredible amount of generous people here in our Steepster community, and such a wealth of information. I love it here, and you all are what make it so great!

I was looking for a Sawadee Tea House black for the morning, and I really wanted to do a trial run of the cute tea cup Uniquity sent as a gift with our awesome US/Canadian swap. One thing I really love about getting items from Sawadee Tea House…I believe it is in Halifax, NS. I have been to Halifax once in my life, and I was on my honeymoon almost 17 years ago. Thus, it holds a special place in my memory.

The Peach Apricot tea is good. Light on the peach, but you can definitely detect the apricot, too. The black base is pretty straightforward, and nothing complicated, but it works.

I brewed it up in my red For Life teapot, and am using the little coi cup, which is a handle-less cup of about 6 ounces. I am used to a jumbo mug with a handle, so you could say I am kind of clunky with such a small, delicate cup, but I am working on it! One of the coi on the front is red, too, so it even matches (if you are into that kind of thing like me!) First mistake…I filled the cup too full and then it got too hot to hold. The next fill, I left a little space at the top for holding. I think the cup is probably better suited to oolong, white, or green….something brewed at a lower temp. I also like that the smaller cup encourages me to sip and enjoy, rather than chug! :D Maybe there is hope for this clunky tea drinker to learn some refinement!

I am drinking from just such a cup this morning! I have burned my fingers many times – it took me a while to learn! But I found quite by accident that I enjoy my tea more (except for milk and sugar breakfast tea) if I let it cool, anyway. Now I am longing for a cast iron teapot and warmer so I can keep the tea at just that temperature and sip away for hours!

I can’t agree with you more and hang in there concerning “refinement” I am a converted coffee drinker and mug collector, but some teas just demand a tea cup and saucer, for traditions sake. I never felt a responsibility to the vessel with coffee… :)

You could try a coaster! There are lots of places that sell them. I know that Teavana (though a little over priced) sells individual cast iron coasters to go with their Tetsubin tea sets, but you could easily just pick up one for yourself. They even have red coasters with Koi fish on them. :D

SimplyJenW

So that is what that little bamboo thing is that came with the cup…a coaster! See, I have a long way to go! ;)

Zij-Ra

When I said coaster I meant saucer. You probably knew that, but I just needed to reiterate for my own sanity. x.x
& tea is the best and tastiest kind of learning curve. :3

SimplyJenW

Saucer might have confused me, actually. I did put it under the cup, and it made it much easier to pick up. Yep…the midwestern girl learns tea….

Uniquity

: ) That is what the little bamboo thingie is for! I actually have one of the koi cups myself (cuz I think they’re super cute) and have actually gotten really good at withstanding the heat to drink. I always grab from the top of the cup, or carefully lift it via the saucer/coaster/bamboo thing. I, too, have trouble with it’s size (my usual mugs are at least 12 oz!) but it’s nice if you’ve got time to go through a few steeps, or even different teas. Glad you’re enjoying!

(Also, yes, Sawadee is in Halifax! :D)

ashmanra

Are the koi cups from Teavana?

SimplyJenW

I think the koi cups are from Sawadee Tea House. It is a white background, a red and a black koi, and it sits on a bamboo saucer.

Uniquity

Sorry, yes, Koi cups from Sawadee. I don’t know where she sources them, but I know she tours Asia annually to pick things for the shop, so I’m not sure if they’re sold widespred in North America.

Yummy cup of this for breakfast. I could have steeped it a little bit longer to really bring out the peachiness, as I mostly had a lovely cup of black tea with a hint of peach, but that was just the morning blahs. Will do an in depth review at a later time. If I ever have time! : )
