My New Love

No, this post isn't about my old love, Vitasoy Peppermint Chocolate Soymilk that I am hoarding in my kitchen, but my new Bodum teapot. As usual, I have Thomas to credit for this lovely gift:

I picked up a $5 bag of Blossoming Lotus 8 herb tea, for $1, since I had credit left on a gift card I got for being one of the first people into the Vegan Holiday Fair. I've also used Tao of Tea Green Roobius that I bought in bulk at Limbo, and Lychee tea. I sit and drink tea all day! Great for combating the sad rain.

Speaking of Blossoming Lotus, some fresh and tasty Live Pasta take out for lunch from last week...

How lucky you are to have such a great teapot! I love Bodum. You are even luckier for have access to such lovely teas.

I have a Bodum, which is broken but I still use it. Yesterday, in fact.

What a great teapot! I was looking at a Bodum teapot the other day but I can't afford to buy anything at the moment. I got stuck in that store for a long time though... mm, sexy kitchen stuff!

Beautiful teapot Jess! What a nice gift.

I am a total tea fanatic. And you're right. It does seem to make the rainy days a bit less gray.

I had no idea that Blossoming Lotus had tea.

KEN - No, there's usually not a salad, I assume it's because it was as to go order?

Erica - I have broken Bodum glasses myself, actually. I broke a wine glass, just uh, testing my strength....yikes.

i am a tea fiend... i decided one day i was going to be a tea snob, but now i just drink the crappy bigelow tea at work. what happened? i think a fancy teapot such as yours would be inspiring!

I was introduced to the joy of bodum when I got married earlier this year. God Bless Bodum is all I can say now. I couldn't see the photos though! Maybe it is just my computer though.

I have that teapot! I love it. It's so fun and pretty watching the water turn into tea.

Bodum is the best! I have two french presses and I used them constantly!

That teapot is adorable. I've been meaning to buy myself a new one since the old one is pretty beat up.

I really should put a fire under my butt, though, because I want to start drinking lots of herbal teas daily.
