drank Zen Tea Mug by Tea Avenue
2408 tasting notes

I took advantage of the free shipping offer from Tea Ave to get some of the things I have been looking at for a long time. Why didn’t I order until now? Their tea is fantastic, but with way too much tea in the house I balked at the shipping charges, which are fair, but still steep. Even with the gift card for $15 I would have to order $90 CND to get free shipping and I just couldn’t.

But I am oh so glad I ordered and I can almost guarantee I will be placing another order before the free shipping offer ends.

First, I am astounded at how fast this got here. I think I ordered very late Monday night, my email says it shipped Tuesday, tracking said it would be here Thursday, but instead it got here a day early – Wednesday around 4 pm. Wow.

I got the Ocean color cups and I want more of them. The thickness is great – not clunky but not fragile. I can feel the warmth of my tea without burning my hands. They even nested well enough as I carried everything into the den. The shape is classic and the rolled lip gives it a little panache. I bought the teapot as well but haven’t used it yet. I will review it once I have used it. I think it will pour well.

I love the airy happiness of this shade of blue and I believe it is going to go beautifully with my Lady Carlyle china. Funny but when I was choosing the color my husband and my daughter both said they like the gray and my son’s girlfriend preferred the yellow! Something for every taste I guess!

Bottom line – These cups are adorable, handy, useful, and I want more!

Bio

I am a music teacher, tutor, and former homeschool mom (25 years!) who started drinking loose leaf tea about ten years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

I am also reviewing for Sororitea Sisters now!

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
