This is actually my second one. I use it every day, so I eventually wore the first one out.
I love Oolong tea. Teavana has great teas, but I usually buy mine at a funky little shop in Nashville. Davis Cookware and Cutlery Shop is an old, family run business and they know their tea. The prices are good and they just bag it up for you. The first time I purchased it there and went home with my two Ziploc bags full...I felt as if I might get arrested for carrying around pot. It really is tea and it is delicious. They don't have a website, but they will ship if you call them (615-298-4728). I only hope they were not damaged by the recent floods.
You simply use a heaping teaspoon of tea leaves per cup.
I use very hot water (just below the boiling point) from our dispenser. It is another one of my "must haves" as the water where we live just doesn't taste very good!
This is the tea when the water is first put in the cup.
This is the tea after 3 minutes...the perfect cup!
You simply sit the Teavana cup onto a large mug and
the tea drains into the cup, the leaves stay behind.
This is what is left, and you can make a second cup of tea using the same leaves.
Care to join me for that perfect cup of tea?
