Fancy Tea

January 11, 2012

Funny how some people can read my mind. I've been a heavy tea drinker for a while now (since 2004) and I always put the words "tea infuser" in my shopping list but never got around actually carting one. I received two presents last Christmas that made me oh so giddy just because they made my diversion from coffee more fancy schmancy:

from Penney and Mr. & Mrs. AskMeWhats <333

Is the combination brilliant or what? Let me share a little secret -- when Nikki made me open the tin can below I almost jumped out of my seat. The tea addict in me wanted to ask for a cup of hot water to try it out in an instant. :)

To brew bliss in a cup, I use about this much loose leaves with 150ml of boiling water.

Hook the note on my mug, wait for 5 minutes, and go on vacay mindset the next ten minutes.

I love the tea as it is but Nikki suggested I try it with lemon and honey. The result? Ecstasy in a mug. At this point I think I'm ready to shell out more for this addiction. Any loose leaf recs? Preferably sold by local tea fanatics please. :)
