Day 4: Frog Tea Infuser and Paris Blend Tea
I had intended to post a new teapot each day, then I received this little lovely in the mail as an early birthday present and I couldn’t pass up the chance to try it out.
This is a Ribbit Tea Infuser made by Jo!e. It is the cutest—and quirkiest—tea infuser that I’ve ever seen. Who wouldn’t love a floating frog tea infuser? I was surprised at how large the tea basket was, it gives ample room for the tea leaves to expand and would hold also hold a teabag.
The tea that I’m drinking is Paris blend from Harney and Sons. It’s a black tea with hints of fruit, citrus, vanilla, and caramel. The black current flavor is at the forefront with a chaser of vanilla and caramel. Very bright and smooth.
The cup and saucer I’m using is what I’ve deemed my I’ve-had-a-bad-day-cup. It holds 2 and half cups of tea and it’s keep it nice and warm.
