I just moved into a dorm room, and everything from my last place is crammed into this tiny little room. So all my loose teas, strainer, etc are packed away and it’s driving me mad. I was craving black tea a while ago and remember that I shoved the last of my Fairmont teabags at the top of one of my suitcases, so I dug it out, headed to the floor lounge, and whipped up a cup. Wow, their kettle must be from the ‘70s. I’m amazed it even works.

Don’t have any milk or sugar in this, as there isn’t even a fridge to keep milk. This is good as is though. A little malty from the Assam, and it yields a beautiful, deep burnt orange liquor.


Also in the process of moving. I made an Emergency Tea Kit™ I make sure to never lose sight of in the midst of all these boxes.

I’m happy you managed to make yourself a cup, though, in spite of the sorry state of that kitchen.


That’s a smart idea! I thought of putting all of my tea stuff into one box or section of a suitcase, but near the end, in a panic, I started putting things wherever it fit best.


Haha, yeah – but come Wednesday night, that’s where I’ll be, too. I’m only moving half a block, so there’ll be plenty of arm-flailing and running to and fro with various cleaning paraphernalia. But yes – a small Emergency Tea Kit™ is always the way to go!


Another small space storage idea for tea packets is a hanging over the door spice rack (I use mine for electronic devices, cords, tea, whatever) or the closet hanger kind with pouches.


Sounds like a great way to save space! My problem though is I’ll only be here for three weeks, and then will have to move again, so I’m not going to bother finding a place for everything and buying storage stuff that suits this dorm’s setup. All I know is I should just buy my own kettle and keep it in my room. :)


No fun! You’re right about the kettle. Water boils slower at high altitude in the Rockies so I’d be very impatient without an electric kettle! I lived in a friends garage for a year with a microwave, crockpot and kettle.


Geez, and you managed to go through that without eating out a lot? I’ll admit that I’ve never had a crockpot, so maybe you can whip up a lot of hot meals with that?

I’m contemplating a couple kettles around the $30 price range. No point in spending a lot of money on one when I don’t even know where I’ll be in a year.


Didn’t eat out, no money. My husband divorced me when I got sick a few years ago. It took time to sort things out and start over moving from expensive Silicon Valley to Colorado. It’s amazing what you can create with fresh fruit and veggies, noodles, broth, cheese etc.


Wow, I’m really sorry to hear that. :( You must be a really strong person, and I’m hoping that things are better for you now.


We’re all stronger than we think we are and I’ve always loved life. I appreciate the little things because of the hard times. Everybody has troubles sooner or later. My husband may have abandoned me, but I’ve never felt abandoned by the love of of God.

Had this one at the Fairmont Banff Springs this weekend with brunch. It had a nice rich flavour for a bagged tea, and totally warmed me up. Very good!

Another goodie from ashmanra. The first adjective that came to mind after a 4-ish minute steep was pure. Crisp. Clean. No thickness on the tongue. It’s got enough strength to qualify as a waker-upper, but no muddiness or bitterness. (My sleepy eyes thank you!)


This one is good with maple syrup, too! Glad you liked it!

We have had a solid gray cloud covering all day, with drizzle and rain most of the time, and a bit chilly though nothing compared to what many of you live with. When I got home from taking a friend’s young adult car-less child home from school for them, I needed comfort, and I guess even youngest who had stayed home felt the chill and damp because she asked if we had any Harney Royal English Breakfast on hand.

Since we didn’t, I made this one in its place. I didn’t sweeten it with maple syrup this time, but kept it plain and had went a little light on leaf and time – on purpose – and had it with my leftover Chinese food lunch. It was quite nice. Tomorrow we may get a little snow, but it will certainly be cold and gray again, so I think a big pot with a bit of maple syrup may be in order.

This was a nice strong Assam blend…perfect with a bit of milk in my travel mug to take to my lectures this weekend at the Empress. This was a stronger black tea than the Empress Orange Pekoe. Unfortunately I don’t have enough experience telling apart the different types of black teas to describe these teas properly.
