Fall Roundup: Tea

by Alexis on November 14, 2012

The Anthology team is full of tea drinkers—at our morning meeting today, there were several pots and cups on the table. While the habit of a steaming cup of tea isn’t as appealing in the summer, the crisp bite of fall mornings has made it a necessity to jump start cool November days. I’ve been restocking my stashes for the months ahead and thought I’d put together a roundup of all the tea gear I’m coveting now. Maybe a few of these will even find their way onto my holiday wish list.

My favorite tea has been whole leaf oolong since a friend introduced me to it a few years ago, and I’d love to brew some in Heath Ceramics classic teapot or sip it from Paul Eshelman’s Low Cup. The creamer and sugar from Tonfisk has a clever design—the sugar bowl nests in the top of the creamer and stays upright while you pour your cream, and would be pretty full of amber sugar crystals. This tea strainer by Ted Muehling is a mini piece of art. I’m always on the lookout for classic coin silver spoons at flea markets, but Etsy has a good selection, too. Items like these make the everyday ritual of making morning tea a little more special.
