This one had the top rating on Amazon, was alot cheaper than the stainless versions and is fast and quiet. It also lifts off that base for filling and pouring, it even features a built in filter.
So here I am brewing my first of 2 mugs of Twinings Earl Grey, my tea of choice if it's not my morning PG Tips cuppa. Do you like my antique storage tin? I found it in a little antiques and collectibles store in Cheyenne, it's perfect for air-tight loose tea storage.
The interesting gadget in my mug (sent to me by a friend in the UK who knows me VERY well!) is an individual tea brewer/strainer. We found it at Bed, Bath and Beyond and it's used more than any other gadget we own. Hubster is a big Earl Grey drinker too, but when it's just one of us drinking, the teapot is just too big for the job. This will easily produce 2 cuppa's of perfect strength brew from one scoop of tea leaves.And the finished cuppa was delicious, I feel restored having been on an enforced 24 hour tea drought.
I am also feeling alot better. Today I have slept on and off all day long, look human again for the first time in a week, and will return to work tomorrow.
