Tea the easy way.

Ok, so I know it's February, but I finally opened my tea maker that my awesome sister gave me for Christmas. I asked for one of those electric tea pots that just heats up the water, but I got this. It's like a coffee maker, but it brews tea instead. I didn't even know these things existed! I was super excited about this gift, but my lack of time intimidated me away from taking it out of the box and figuring it out.

I cut way back on my night job hours, so I thought tonight was a good night to try it out. I took out the Green Mandarin Decaf and started right in. It's super easy to use, and keeps the tea hot between sips. The hardest part was trying to find an outlet in my kitchen that worked (move over toaster!). I'm not sure if this appliance is tea blasphemy, but I really don't care. I'm super pumped about it! Thanks Carrie!

Fancy! I have an electric tea pot that turns off automatically when the water starts to boil...were it not for that, I'd have melted the teapot on the stove by now. But mine doesn't keep the water quite warm enough for a second cup...

Wheee, toys!

Speaking of supposed sacrilege, I have a Senseo coffee maker. Shhhhh, don't tell anyone.
