Today is a coconut-toasted pouchong oolong from the Perennial tea house--the smell, as always, is heavenly.
As for humble teaware--I'd have to say that my Liquid Solutions tea tumbler is probably the most essential piece of teaware I have. It isn't pretty or sexy (or expensive), but I use it all day, every day at work (I work with/around computers, where a teapot or even an open mug is not possible).
It's also the only travel mug I've found with this kind of design, with a handled brewing basket in the top--I can pour my hot water over the leaves, let them steep, and then yank it out whenever my tea is ready. Which gives me the best of both worlds, IMHO--loose leaf tea, multiple infusions, and convenience!
