I will be visiting family in Cooperstown in a few months, it really is a beautiful part of the country. The weather must be great right now.

Anyway....welcome.



I love Cooperstown, we're thinking about going to the Baseball Hall of Fame one of these days, we haven't been in a few years.

It's cooled down around here and the leaves are just starting to turn. I love autumn!

I use them from time to time when I am not able to take my little porcelain teapot with me.

I can't imgine having a porcelain teapot right now, I'd be too afraid it would get broken (I'm not the most graceful person)

If you are looking for easy then try Adagio's Glass mug and infuser. I love mine. I use it mostly at work but it is very convenient. The lid flips over as a tray for the infuser. It is easy for resteep.

At work I swear by it and alittle electric kettle from Bed, Bath and Beyond. It is a simple set up that produces great results.

I wish I had started off with this method but after trying several methods this worked best for me.

I love it. I think as I venture into more types of teas that I've been hearing about on here I may venture into different pots and infusers.

Fill your own bags are great! Especially for travel, but I'm picky, I dislike those papery ones. I like the expandable sides on these, they have a lot of room:

I love Cooperstown too, my friend and I drove there a few years ago. She was living in Binghamton.

I really miss autumn in my home state of Ohio!!
