I just love my new tea cup! I discovered a lovely little tea store the other day. I have to say, I’m not much of a tea drinker but I’m trying to be. I know it’s supposed to be good for you.
The organic teas this store sells are loose leaf and come straight from the hills of China. The owner personally goes to China two months out of the year to oversee production. I love stores like this.
Anyway—there were various tea cups, tea-on-the-go mugs, teapots, and accessories as well as all the various types of teas all about the store. I spotted this particular tea cup and fell in love. There were 16 different designs to choose from and I chose the plain white one.
Look at how neat it is! The tea leaves go inside the cup insert, you pour hot water over the leaves, put the lid on, and let it sit for a couple of minutes. Then you remove the lid and turn it upside down, then remove the insert and set it on the lid while you drink your tea straight from the cup.
Since the same leaves can be used for 2-3 cups of tea, you can just re-insert the insert back into the cup when you’re done drinking the first cup and repeat. How exciting!
So, if you have nothing else to do today, see if you can find and visit a local store that sells nothing but teas and tea-related objects.
