lol. To borrow the naming scheme Adagio uses... :)

This post is for the flash your tea stash for the knitter's tea swap, but I figured it could grace my blog too!

Okay. I'll be the first to admit I'm a tea fanatic. I mostly prefer loose leaf teas, but I do have some herbal tea bags, and chai in bags (because I can't seem to find a decent loose leaf chai anyway). I suppose I may adore tea too much, and I'm very conscientious about my brewing time and water temperature so that each cup of tea can be its very best :) I guess I'm a tea activist.

Anyhoo, here's my stash (it's missing some tea that my bf and I keep at work)


Here are my favorite teapots that are most often in use. The three in the middle are cast iron. The biggest can serve 8-10 people, the middle 2-3, the smallest pretty much me or 2 small cups. I generally use my IngenuiTea from Adagio at work, as it makes it easier to brew loose leaf. I think I have an affinity for blue tea pots, don't ya think?

Tea for me! A hot cup of Pu-erh and some mini blueberry muffins!

Hello from your secret tea swap partner!! You are quite the tea aficionado! I must confess I feel a bit intimidated by that unbelievable stash! It doesn't look like I'll be able to introduce you to anything new, but hopefully you'll enjoy it nevertheless. Keep an eye out for something fun in the mail :)

I'll have to show this post to Erik. I have a tea drawer and he accuses me of trying to buy more tea before I've finished any of the drawer contents. Silly man.

I lust after those cast iron tea pots. They are gorgeous

I love your teapots. I've been looking for the right teapot for quite a while now, and your cast irons look great.
Thanks for the reply to my question about plying set singles. I'll give it a try.
