Today was a good day! I got a package from Della Terra including some teas I got to give a friend for Valentine’s Day. I also got my Amazon order with some Nina’s teas which had a set of four smaller tins. Can’t wait to try them all!

My Lao Cong Zi Ya from the wonderful Norbu tea arrived yesterday. This was the last purchase I made from them – I cleaned out their entire stock of this delightful tea :)

This morning I received my first order from Pure Aroma Tea. Everything looks great: good packaging, nicely labelled with brewing instructions and description plus each pouch including 10g samples has a resealable tab.

They have some lovely sounding teas on their website, I purchased: Wendy Tea, Keemun Spruce, Kenya Milima, Strawberry & Kiwi, Irish Breakfast full leaf tea, Yunnan Pu-Erh, Summer blend, Japanese cherry, White tea raspberry and ginseng and lastly Earl Grey blue flowers.

Plenty of tea there to keep myself busy :)

Yesterday I received my order from Ovation Teas – although I did not order any tea, but rather their two bodum products (glass mug with strainer and traveling french press). Does anybody know how viable an option it is to put loose leaf tea in the traveling press and take it with me? I feel as though the tea will continue to steep even once I’ve pressed down the plunger.

Making tea in a french press…why did I never think of this before? Great idea! Not sure about whether it’d continue to steep though…

I don’t personally enjoy tea in a french press as I am quite sensitive to bitterness and I find it does continue to steep (however slowly) BUT I know there are some Steepsterites who primarily brew in a french press. I think it’s a personal preference.

Oh, I got it already! Lime Gelato, Merry Cranberry, Hot Lips, Ceylon Star, Forever Nuts, and Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait. And I got samples of Coco Chai Rooibos, The Skinny, and Chocolate Chili Chai. Yay, tea!

So many goodies in there!

Oh, I forgot to include that I also got 100g of Cookie Dough. Silly me!
