Awesome Shit That I Want Monday

Aaaand we’re one post further from The Aspic.

It’s going to be really, really hard not to constantly post camera-related items. Luckily, I’m a greedy fucker and there’s a lot of shit I want.

This week: Tea.

I loves me some tea.

If I’m being really really specific, I like 16 ounces of just-below-boiling water poured over a mix of 2/3 this and 1/3 this, steeped for 10 minutes, poured into a 32 ounce Nalgene bottle (the new kind, without the Death Polymer) filled with ice and sweetened with simple syrup.

If I were being specific.

This neat-o cup from Bodum would make my tea-steeping if not easier, at least more fun to watch (trying to stare through my ceramic teapot gives me a headache) so I could justify buying those beautifully constructed tea leaves that bloom into flowers and shit. It would also enhance my hot-tea drinking, with the double-wall thing.

I also have an overabundant (read: rainforest jungle-esque) herb garden about to eat the backyard. If I had this teapot, I might use some of them. Maybe.

Fine, I pretty much want everything from the Bodum 2009 catalogue. So sue me. You look at those ceramic cups and tell me you don’t.

  1. I have the bodum tea kettle–and really does make steeping a spectator sport, a slow quiet one mind you. Great on a morning where you really are too tired to read or think, though.

  2. glark, the ‘peach tranquility’ tea i linked to kicks much ass. i bet if you put it in the pitcher with some fresh ginger slices in the side compartment, it would be killer.

    luky, join the club. sigh.

    maybelle’s, you’ve described pretty much all my mornings.

    jane, i have a teapot i like – can’t remember the name of the company that makes it, maybe forlife? – but i can always use another.

    forkful, told you so, told you so.
