30 Day Tea/Teapot Challenge Day 4

A few days ago, a friend challenged me to do a 30 days of Teas and Teapots challenge.  So, for the next 30 days, I will be posting the tea that I am drinking as well as the teapot I am using.
Feel free to play along and post the tea you are drinking and/or the teapot you are using. Just add your link in the comments or join in on the blog’s Facebook page Simply Angela. On Twitter, use the hashtag #SimplyAngelaTeaChallenge
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.

Oh he is cute and whoa yeah big if that's a large tea cup. I have one that I'm guessing is by the same company. It's got the same text but is a tall mug with a flare at the top. They made hot chocolate and coffee ones as well so I got one of each :D

Yep, it's a large tea cup and the frog's a pretty good size. I think it's made by Shonfeld. I didn't know they had hot chocolate and coffee ones, I'll have to look for those.

Yup that's what mine is I believe. I'll have to take a pic. I got them a few years back. Broke the handle off one but can't seem to toss it. lol

I've had a few cups that I've broken the handles off of but they seem to have staying power. lol

How adorable.

Love the infuser.

I found an infuser at Pier One that is a book. That was last year.

Thanks for sharing.
