I have two and they rock! I do still love my Contigo autolock mugs as they are a bit easier for drinking on the go but Timolino is the best for tea on the go!

I throw mine in the top rack of the dishwasher with no issues :D

Dishwasher hey??? That would make it even easier to use. I have been too scared to put it in the dishwasher.

I love these filters and think they are the best. I just put my tea leaves in and pull the drawstring close. So easy!

drank Blueberry Fruit Tea by Teavivre
739 tasting notes

I found this tea is definitely better iced and with a shorter steep time than the package recommends. It’s a very pleasant blueberry tea and really yummy. I found that when I steeped it hot or for too long it took on a medicinal quality.. or at least I think so. It might just be the black currant coming out more though and medicine is what my brain is thinking. So the bottom line is DRINK IT COLD.

Flavors: Berries

Preparation
Iced 5 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

oh the Teavivre tins are awesome! I highly recommend those as well!

Agreed! I think it’s that darn roselle (which is a relative of hibiscus I think)which makes it too tart when steeped for a long time.

drank Birthday Cake by DAVIDsTEA
739 tasting notes

Today I felt like some sweet tea and it has nothing to do with the fact that I was sick yesterday and it snowed. Or the fact that today it is -20C. Nope nothing to do with all that at all. I’m just at work and staring at mountains of snow wishing for spring and +1C

Preparation
Iced 5 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

Okay I was going to write this note earlier but life got in the way. So my first cup of this was spectacularly awesome. It was a nice creamy mint that was perfect. Now for some unknown reason after that I found it got sometimes too sweet near the end. Similar to teas with Chamomile in them. So I would definitely recommend this to everyone as it is extremely yummy.

Preparation
Boiling 1 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

drank Yu Lu Yan Cha Black by Verdant Tea
739 tasting notes

Not nearly as good as Laoshan Black or the chai version but it’s still a good cup. I just put in an order to Teavivre since I haven’t ordered from them in ages. I think I’ll rotate my orders from the companies so no one feels left out and I don’t run out of yummy tea! So next time I order it will be Butiki’s Teas turn :D

Dang it, it is still really cold outside! Go away you pesky mountains of snow that ring the work parking lot. Seriously I could hike those things and get a free workout. I am sooo tired of this crummy weather. Where is that nice -1C or better yet +1C? Oh well thank goodness I have this tea to get through it all. I can’t wait to see what Verdant has coming in the February Month Club ( I have the bundle subscription) also once I finish some more tea out of my cupboard I’ll order some more of the good stuff from Butki.

Flavors: Lemon Zest

Teas in my cupboard may not be physically in my cupboard anymore.

I read ebooks mostly scifi/fantasy with some mystery thrown in. I should also mention that I read graphic novels from Marvel to Manga.
I have an orange and white tabby who is cute and noisy.

I also hate all coffee flavoured things and yes that does include Cappuccino. I can’t stand tobacco either.

I’m not a vegan or vegetarian while I respect those that are. Anyone who gets between me and my meat.. well just don’t :D
I also don’t drink alcohol or smoke. beer,coolers etc.. all taste horrible to me. As for the smoke, besides the health hazards it smells awful!
