Long Time No Tea

It's been awhile. It's been too well-heated in my dorm recently to drink tea, and the last time I tried to, I was punished for the aforementioned sin of heating water via microwave, because I spilled it on my legs and gave myself a couple second degree burns through my jeans!

We live and learn.

I'm still on my Sowmee white tea kick, probably because it has less caffeine. My SO is into Keemun Panda (Keemun is a region in China; it's a black tea.) and since we've found favorites, we're not terribly tempted to switch.

Trivia Time!

What do you think this utensil is for?

It's a honey spoon. The ridge lets you set your spoon (filled with honey) on the rim of nearly and tea cup or mug so it dissolves into the tea and doesn't sink down to the bottom all at once. How awesome is that? I saw this in a store and it took me forever to figure out what it was for!
