I confess here that my tastes are not sophisticated: I am neither ambitious enough to steep loose tea, nor interested enough in starting the practice to invest in the tools of the trade. I'm quite happy with my bagged tea, thank you. The latest variety I'm enjoying is a pomegranate blend. I didn't even know I liked pomegranate, but I bought it by accident and was hooked from the first sip.
Acquisitions of new habits spawn new desires, I have found. I ran across this fine tea set a few days ago. I find I would very much like to have it. Too bad I can't remember where I found it!
