How Do You Take Your Tea?

How do you take your tea?

 One lump or two?

With milk or lemon?

Loose or bagged?

On the run out the door, with a friend, at a quiet moment in the evening?

Well, taking ‘tea with a friend’ is about to head to an entirely different level; here are a set of sassy tea infusers filling more than your cup with a bit of extra personality. I spied these at two different stores a few weeks apart. While not all are beautiful per se, they are useful. microwaveable, and fun.

A delightful addition to an ancient ritual. Who’s up for a little change of pace here in the throes of winter? if you’d like similar company, check out Sur La Table. Bazinga, why not? Might be as close as I get to swimming with manatees for a while.

Key to crazy tea

Dishwasher safe, I’d give it a try.

“If you are cold, tea will warm you;
if you are too heated, it will cool you;
If you are depressed, it will cheer you;
If you are excited, it will calm you.”  ―William Ewart Gladstone

“There is something in the nature of tea that leads us into a world of quiet contemplation of life.”  ―Lin YuTang, The Importance Of Living 

Tea can also, apparently, invoke a belly laugh.

Let’s brew some Milk Oolong in a china cup, lightly extend those pinkies, and take a moment to celebrate the day.
