I saw the following image on Instagram today, a collaboration between Jennie the Potter and Churchmouse Yarn & Teas. What could be more at the intersection of knit and tea than a tea leaf, cleverly patterned to also look like the knit stitch? Pick one up for yourself quickly because they are limited edition! https://www.instagram.com/p/BBYOHSpSp28/ Churchmouse… Continue reading Knittea: A Necklace
A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to go on a work errand to a local tea shop, Shang Tea, located in Crown Center. While there, an amazing staff member offered us tastes of several different teas. The shop is very welcoming – there are tables and benches and you can come in an… Continue reading DrinkMe: Shang Tea, Cinnamon Wu-long
I only recently learned that as part of 2013’s Black Friday celebrations World Market had a whole Downton Abbey themed tea party event. I can’t believe I missed it! Perhaps my favorite part were the beautiful mugs they gave away as part of the Black Friday promotions. They don’t have any more, so you’ll have… Continue reading A very Downton Tea Party
I don’t remember who first told me about David’s Tea but I was excited to place and order with them. It wasn’t until after I had already ordered that I realized that they were located in Canada and it would take a little extra time to receive my box. Even so I was pleasantly surprised… Continue reading Teashop: David’s Tea

The tea is… Continue reading Drink Me: Teavana, Maharaja Chai Oolong/Samurai Chai Maté with Sugar Sample

I was very excited to try and Almond Oolong in particular. You can purchase the Almond Oolong in a few different sizes: a half ounce sample… Continue reading Drink Me: Adagio Teas, Almond Oolong
I’m going to start with a tin of tea I actually bought a few months before starting this whole project. In October of last year, I was involved in an online swap through Ravelry, a social network site for knitters. The swap was themed around one of my favorite podcasts, Welcome to Nightvale. In one… Continue reading Drink Me: Adagio Teas, Glow Cloud.
The first thing I needed when I decided to begin this journey was a good way to brew tea. Since I mostly drink my tea at work, I was looking for something that was convenient, easy to use and easy to clean up. I was also looking for something that wouldn’t break the bank. One… Continue reading Getting started.
