Good question. For me, it was a tie. I was visiting a friend, and on my way home stopped off at her local Whole Foods.
When I got to the tea and coffee aisle, I paid close attention to the tea brewing vessels. I spent some time reading the boxes, and viewing the different teaware. I ended up purchasing this Rishi sky blue colored, 1 cup, brew-in-the-cup, and a tin of Rishi loose leaf tea. Shortly after, I placed my first order with adagio. So began my love affair with brewing tea.
I rarely use this cup, however, because the infuser holes seem rather large. I should use it, though, because I'm sure it would be better than using the metal infuser I use now. I probably should figure out which tea leaves I could use this for. For now, it is sitting in the back of my tea cabinet's teaware shelf.
This morning, I had a mug of Jasmine #9. Is this real jasmine-infused tea, like Jasmine #12, or is the jasmine sprayed on?
