New year, new job, new tea, and new tea toys!
The holidays brought both tea leaves and tea ware to my doorstep. (Isn’t it great how easy we are to shop for?) First in line for show-and-tell is my Teaposy set, given to me by my sister. It comes with a glass pot with handle, a strainer that fits in the spout, and a matching glass cup and saucer.
I’ll confess that I was doubtful about this set when I first opened it; It’s very small, very delicate-looking, and its straining device looked absolutely useless. I was sure it would crack the minute I filled it with hot water, but I was quickly proven wrong in the best way.
First, the glass has been heat-resistant so far, and it allows me to see blooming teas at the office. Always a plus, since co-workers love to give the gift of blooming tea.
Second, I used loose tea with a lot of chopped mint leaves, and I was surprised to find that the filter was capable of straining almost all of the particles and kept them from dumping into my cup. You can hardly see it – just a tiny, stainless steel spiral that pulls open when you hook the end on the very edge of the spout.
And third, it’s a great size for my desk at work. I can fill the cup about three times with one pot of tea. Granted, it’s a rather small cup, but I’ve found that if I make a big pot it gets too cold by the time I’m halfway through, anyway.
On a very trivial note, it undeniably cute – and everyone comments on it when they walk by. This goes on my list of future gifts to tea-lovin’ friends, and earns high marks in the tea-for-the-office category.

As someone that has done a fair amount of content on tea, I have a lot of mixed thoughts on the way information is passed. With tea reviews or discussing a specific tea I have struggled with the question: how to talk about an individual tea or tea in general in an interesting or useful way.. Whether you like or dislike TeaDB episodes largely depends on whether you enjoy watching two particular people drink and binter. This is fine enough and it is certainly fun for Denny & I to create, but I’ll also agree with the sentiment that it’s not necessarily the most substantive way to review a tea in depth. There’s some signal but there’s also a lot of noise. Writing about a specific tea also isn’t easy and I think is actually very difficult to execute in a way that is actually consistently interesting or useful for people. Most people just want to know if you liked or didn’t like a specific tea. Making something that piques interest beyond that is a challenge and even if you don’t like them a place like Mei Leaf has succeeded in creating content that really does engage their viewers. You also have to consider that the majority of people have not had the tea or are even unfamiliar with the basic taste profile (i.e. Denny & I describing a traditionally stored pu’erh, when the audience has never had one).. Here are some phrases I dislike and hear frequently enough that I find them unhelpful and sometimes even counter-productive.
