Ima --- Little Teapot

Looky! Looky! It's the little teapot I purchased at the tea shop in San Francisco. Isn't she cute? Her name is Ima. Just kiddin. I really don't go around the house naming objects, except my car Huny B and scooter Kanji. Anyway, Ima really getting into this tea thing. Of course, it's all about the gear for me with anything. If there's cool gear, I'm game! No stinkin' little tea ball strainer for me. No sireee!

This morning, before yoga class, I decided I was going to have a little tea party with myself. There's my perfect little white cup from France, some Black Lychee tea and Ima. I followed the instructions by placing a teaspoon of tea in Ima then filled 'er up with hot water. Let it sit a bit and then pour.....

Black Lychee tea has a sweet aftertaste. Yummy. Love it. And I love the entire process of sitting down with my little teapot in the morning. I can reuse the tea up to 5 times too!

I'm enjoying this little ritual as I ween myself from coffee, that stuff the guy in the tea shop said would rot my gut. Yeah, I don't want a rotten gut... thank you very much.

Ima is adorable. Seeing your pretty white tea cup makes me want to go out and get one, too, rather than drink my morning tea in a big ol' coffee mug, like usual.
