Primula Tea: Blooming Teas, Flowering Teas, Artisan Teas

I have that set and lots of tea, I like taking them to work and wowing everyone.

They love all my geek toys at work...I also have an Inginuitea Tea Pot...they are always asking to borrow it. It seems to help that I work with a bunch of women.

I guess I thought it would be obvious the hot toddy is for adults who are not alcoholics or pregnant! meant it more in terms of having a cold. But the honey/ginger combo might help the nausea, assuming you like ginger.

Is anyone else especially particular about their teapots? I don't like to make herbal tea in my "black" teapot, or vice versa. I find there is enough residual flavor that it mars the tea I'm about to enjoy. Is that just me?

Tea mug or tea cup? I'm a mug girl most of the time, I like to have a LOT of tea. My dad used to only drink his tea out of bone china tea cups. It tickled me to see those enormous hands being so gentle and delicate with a floral teacup. When I feel reminiscent, I use one of his cups for my tea and think of him.

I have separate pots for herbal and black (and green) teas. But, I want a pot that can go in the dishwasher.

We were gifted a really nice pot. It was large, it didn't drip, and it had one of those inserts for tea leaves. I am so mad at myself. I dropped one of my Copco (enamelled cast iron) lids on it. Back to the old brown one that piddles when you pour tea.

I prefer a mug for my tea at home. A client made this one and I use it all the time.

Oh I love that mug! I had one that was handmade and I dropped it on the ceramic tile floor. Wow that was a lot of pieces! This is my favorite teapot. It can sit on a stove burner and it can go in the dishwasher. It isn't cheap though!

I don't really use a teapot. I just heat water in a kettle and then pour it into my mug with teabags.

Funny thing about the White Christmas Tea by Stash. My local grocery store has a very good tea selection for some reason, and I think they carry every Stash type of tea except the Christmas blend. I checked yesterday, and had to shake my head and laugh.

I ended up getting Mint Magic from Celestial Seasonings. It's very good!

They might bring it in for a Christmas special if they generally stock Stash. My grocery store will only bring it in in December. I'm so addicted though I buy it in caselots of 120 bags at a shot!
