I highly recommend buying this mug. Also if you drink coffee the basket filter is fine enough that you can brew your coffee on the go as well(I have not tried this). This mug is very solid...does not feel cheaply made and hold quite a bit of liquid...a lot more than many tea tumblers on the market. For the price and how well it works I give this product a 9.5 out of 10.
Along with my new mug I also purchased some genmaicha from David's Tea. $10 for a full tin(including the actual tin). My wife had informed me how much she like genmaicha from her time working at a sushi house and I also like the tea there so I decided to buy some. This was easier than trying to make my own by roasting brown rice(which I tried and was pretty happy with the outcome). The tea is very good. Reminds me eating sushi at Opa sushi in Prince Rupert and other sushi houses. If only it came with actual sushi.

My new obsession with tea is starting to take up a great deal of cupboard space which includes kettles mugs, cups, tea tins and infusers along with lots of other things.
My favorite mug for at home is my teal infuser mug from David's tea. I love this mug and it looks super cool along with my White chai from Teavana.
I am drinking so much tea that I am starting to look and feel different. i think it works for me though
Now to totally change gears and look at some major news in the world of running. South African runner, and National Hero, Oscar Pistorius known as the blade runner has been charged with the murder of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. Oscar shot his girlfriend to death claiming he thought she was a robber and did not notice she got out of bed. When I heard this I assumed he had used some blades to kill her and not a gun. However word is that his excuse probably wont stand up in court and that he does not have a leg to stand on. Sorry It has been a few posts since I put in any inappropriate humor and jokes.
Until next time...............when in doubt, PINKY out!!!
