The "other" Dark Side: Loose Leaf Tea

*clears throat* Hello, my name is Tymber, and I'm a new loose leaf tea whore.

I love herbal teas, and after my couple of cups of coffee first thing in the morning, I switch over to tea for the rest of the day. I know there are people who hate bagged tea, but the ones I drink always tasted great to me.

Well, at the mall I go to where I visit Build-A-Bear on occasion (that's a post for another day LOL) I've noticed a few doors down, there's a place called Teavana. Never had time to get in there, but it intrigued me.

Finally, last week, I had a chance to go there. Got me some Earl Grey white tea, and two different fruit teas in white. And a strainer. And a tin.

*clearing throat again*

Yeah.

Well, I'm hooked. I still like my bagged herbal tea, because the ones I get I've been drinking for years. But yes, there is definitely a stronger, richer flavor to loose leaf tea.

Yesterday, I stopped by again with Sir (who's long been a fan of loose leaf tea and I made fun of Him when he spent $300 on tea while on a trip to London a couple of months ago). I dropped more money on more tea and a few more tins.

And that's how they suck you in... LOL

    I found that store back in March and spent several hundred dollars there over the next month and a half. I love their tea. The nice thing is if you don't love it, you can return it for a refund of what you bring back. There have been several I didn't like and they exchanged them when I didn't have a receipt.

    Oh, tea my mother introduced great tea when I was very young. She would always make fresh hot tea when ever my brothers or I did not feel good.
    She always used loose leaf tea. It spoiled me for any other form of tea for life.
