It’s really been a rollercoaster of a year so far. Seattle has been hit by several storm systems that have wreaked havoc with wind, rain, snow, and ice. I’ve never experienced this many Snow Days in one season!
So while waiting for a bus that never came, a friend and I decided to get out of the freezing cold and stop in at a cafe. Luckily, the proprietor is always there to open on days like this, and we sat down to chat and watch people try to navigate through the white mess outside. Katy’s Corner Cafe in the Central District serves Teavana brand, and they prepare it in an awesome brew cup that expells the water through the bottom when you press it down on the rim of your mug.
We both had oolong, but I just can’t say which one it was, as I was busy raving over this tea maker. We watched the whole leaves unfold beautifully through the clear walls of the device. I can tell you that it had a very fruity fragrance and taste – quite pear-like. And given the rest of the selection in the cafe and on the Teavana site, they’re very into fruity blends, and they do it fairly well. I don’t generally like fruity teas or tisanes that often, but this one certainly improved my opinion of it.
I’m happy to say that the tea maker is for sale on the Teavana Web site for $17.95.
Eventually the bus arrived, and I was whisked away from this little tea haven and off to work…

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.
