Well, I have found out (and it took me years and years and years) that my vintage teaspoons from my Aunt Rosie are teaspoons in name only. I expected as much. Now that I have my Perfect Teaspoon and have begun making tea with it, WHAT A DIFFERENCE. Vintage Teaspoon is a stingy little thing and I always tried to compensate but you know. Some days you are in a rush and you just expect your teaspoon to measure a spoon of tea and not be all chintzy about it!
I made Golden Monkey with Perfect Teaspoon and it has taken my enjoyment up … at least three notches! So rich and honeyed. I was close, but I wasn’t using quite enough tea. Just that little bit extra is making one of my favorite teas even more delicious!
Now I feel like I have all new teas because I will be making them for the first time with my Perfect Teaspoon! I wonder how Keemun Mao Feng and Tan Yang Te Ji will taste when made with the Perfect Teaspoon? I shiver with anticipation!!!!
(…and maybe in 5 or 10 years I’ll get a Tea Scale and …)
