I just bought myself an insulated teapot because I miss the teapot experience. The teapot is double walled stainless steel, but the spout and the cap are connected to the outer layer, thus the whole teapot still got quite hot to the touch, not as good insulation as a big thermos. But still fun to keep pouring myself small cups.

I drank through half the pot before I was sleepy enough to sleep, and today I just added more hot water to warm it back up. I’m really finding the taste of this one quite comforting lately, although I don’t use it as a sleep aid often, I probably should. The spearmint is what’s most noticeable, but I need to do a side by side with Tazo Calm which used to be my go to sleepy aid.

I get easily excited and tend to get into the habit of collecting things I get really really excited about- books, fountain pens, fragrance, tea and any number of things. Mostly I’m just really excitable.

My favorites are oolongs! Also high for me are greens and ripe pu’erh. But I do like most teas and I’ll try most anything at least once. I just don’t like rooibos, smokey, or banana flavored things.

My name is Christina, but there’s also another Christina with a cat as a profile picture, so I go by Flyawaybirdie.

Feel free to drop me a message anytime. I love messages/letters/etc.

NOTE!: My cupboard is not up to date. Not even close. But it does have a bunch of teas I have pretty substantial quantities of, so I put them in there anyways because I’m unlikely to run out soon. Also, if I wrote a note on it and didn’t include a TTB name or a sipdown note, I’m likely to still have some even if it’s not in my cupboard, so feel free to ask if you want to swap!
