I recall my Dad won Christmas a few years back as he gave me a couple adult colouring books. (BTW, the Canadian in me flinches spelling colour “color”). I coloured a few pages, but I always never have the time to put more work into it. Colouring books always have a place in my heart, I recall going into metaphysical book stores as a teen to buy weird colouring books of plants, mandalas, and crystals as those were better than cheapo kids colouring books. When I worked as an A&D Counsellor, I always had a stack of colouring pages (from … Continue reading, hoot!

I hopped on the silicone bandwagon years ago and love those silicone spatulas and muffin “tins”. I remember even special ordering a silicone Silpat before they were sold in stores. I have a couple collapsible colander and mixing bowls made of silicone, which I find very storage convenient. I saw The Tea Spot’s Tuffy Steeper early in my tea drinker days and thought it was really cool. I finally got one a couple months ago, and have been playing with it. I take it with me every time I travelled to where I know I have access to a mug … Continue reading, hoot!
Long time readers likely notice I tend to use the same Teaware.House Ruyao gaiwan for my reviews, which I bought it back in February 2016. I quite like the gaiwan’s heat retention, which I find pushes my teas harder, plus the wide bowl makes viewing the leaves easier. I also try to have my tea reviews neutral, so I prefer a ceremic gaiwan over tea pots, so readers can replicate easier, whereas years of clay seasoning isn’t replicated. Anyways, the White Ruyao Gaiwan served me well for over a year. I managed to crack the lid on my favorite gaiwan and the lip of another around May. … Continue reading, hoot!

Within 30 minutes of Crimson Lotus Tea notifying social media, I swooped in on their new Dark Texture Silver tea cup. They only had a couple cups locally, so I had it in my hands the next day instead of waiting for shipping from China. This cup is 50ml, lined with silver. I jumped on this cup over the others as I really like the flare shape, as I find it has a natural placement for the fingers. I am also on a strange Star Wars kick since January, so the dark colour with the light streaks, combined with silver reflecting glowing … Continue reading, hoot!
In a night of tea drunkery and boredom, I descended into the depths of Amazon’s tea world. The madness started when I was linked this Collapsible Tea Kettle. At first I was impressed as this kettle is so space efficient and lime green! Rest assured, it also comes in bio-hazard orange! Then I read the 1 star reviews of the kettle melting violently when people left it unattended. I don’t think I am ever going to leave auto-shut-off boil-dry techno town. I then went down the search engine hole.. when you hit page 15 you start getting the weird stuff. Stuff that seems useful to only … Continue reading, hoot!
Silver Tea pots have been all the rage recently and it is hard to ignore due to how pretty they are! Crimson Lotus Tea lent me one of their Silver Tea Pots to experiment with. Prior to this, I’ve been lucky to drink out of silver tea pots a few times, with Crimson Lotus of course, but also I had a comparison tasting while at the Chinese Tea Shop in Vancouver, Canada. This time I’ve had my wings on this pot for weeks, using it on various teas and playing around. The particular Silver Tea Pot from Crimson Lotus Tea I was quite impressed with. … Continue reading, hoot!

I first encountered The Wall Tea Infuser at the World Tea Expo. I walked by and saw it on display. I thought, “What crap, it is only for right-handed people.” The Boreal Wildcraft guys promptly told me, “We do carry a left handed one, and oddly it sells just as well as the right handed ones, despite left handers are only like 10% of the population.” Then they showed me the left handed model. To be honest, at that point I bought a left handed one without a second thought. I did not care how good the tea infuser was or … Continue reading, hoot!
