Hello, friends! I hope you are all safe and well. It’s been an eventful — albeit odd at times — year. I once again have gone a long stretch without posting, but in mid-June, my daughter was born, so I have been focused on caring for her. I can’t believe how much she’s grown in almost two months! She is already smiling and babbling, and we are excited for upcoming milestones.

Hi, tea friends! I thought I’d introduce myself to some of the new followers around here since it’s been a while since I did a post like this! I don’t really show my face much but I want to change that a little. @tealeavesandtweed has really been inspiring me with her gorgeous backyard photos! My name is Stephanie and I am a tea lover and journalist from the Chicago area. I am a new mom to a human baby, and longtime fur baby mom to two cats and a dog. My husband and I work together as news designers/copy editors, but I’m currently on leave as I care for my newborn, and using the time to play with and care for her (while trying new teas). Besides tea, I love baking, walks, coffee sometimes (gasp), watercolor painting, writing, travel (when we aren’t in the middle of a pandemic) and reading. My favorite teas are assam and green tea (sipping sencha premier from @adagioteas in this photo), though that changes with the season and I’m always interested in trying something new. If you read this far, thank you! 💚And tell me about yourself in the comments!
Now, let’s talk about this gorgeous glass teapot I was recently gifted.

This is how a lot of my time is spent lately. And I am definitely not complaining about that! Practicing gratitude that I have the privilege to enjoy a little time off to spend with my daughter in these early days, still having a job amid the pandemic (for now), a roof over my head that I share with my sweet little family at our rental home and the time to enjoy good tea and enrich my mind with books. What are you grateful for? 💚 @roimtea gifted me this gorgeous glass teapot. It has a no-drip spout, and the infuser and lid dynamically lock for easy removal when you’re done steeping. My first step in it was @teavivre dragonwell. Visit the link in my bio tomorrow for a full review. #whereistheteapotemoji 🍵
Roim Tea recently reached out to me about trying one of their new glass teapots, so I chose this one. So far I’m really loving it! I was drawn to the sleek design and short spout, and it lives up to their “no-drip” claim. Also, the strainer comes with a lid that locks to it, so when you’re done steeping, you can take the whole thing out and not worry about burning your fingers. It’s cute and functional, so I’d recommend it to anyone in the market for a glass teapot.
