Tea Sticks were a mystery to me when I first saw them at a local Chinese restaurant. It seems just like a tea bag only worse. I still don't understand the point. The Husband bought 2 boxes of them, and one box was something called "American Breakfast" blend from Petit Tea. The web site says,
Each Tea Stick is factory filled with right amount of tea and no matter how long you steep, your tea will not get bitter. You get a Perfect Cup of tea, every time, any time.How is that even possible? I'm not a big fan of the tea or of tea in this form. The disposable tea sticks seem to provide more waste than a tea bag, and if you're going to get re-usable ones why not just use a traditional infuser?
The cup is one I only use in the winter. It says "Royal Norfolk" on the bottom. I enjoy having cups I change out seasonally. Variety is the spice of life, and variety in small things is often enough.
