New Uses for Teaware

March 12, 2007


I was fiddling around in the kitchen last night, trying to pack a lunch for today, and I was lamenting the lack of any tiny tupperware that would let me take a bit of chevre in my bento this week.

I prepared enough little packages to throw in my lunches all week. I’ve got a lot more sipping cups than I do aroma cups, so it’s great to be able to put some of them to good use.

Also included in the bento, for those interested: cashews, cherry tomatoes, snow peas, baby zucchini, salted rosemary bread, a packet of miso, some jelly fruits, and a pear. Good, whole foods, no spending money in the cafeteria. Great with tea.

And my lunchtime tea: Supreme Ginseng Oolong from Vital T Leaf, brought to me from San Francisco. (Seattle actually has the honor of hosting the second Vital T location – on the corner of 1st and Union in Pike Place Market.) I’m eager to try it.

So, ‘fess up… Do you use any of your teaware in a non-traditional way?
