Tea Anyone?

I got a lot of comments on my new Altus Tea System on the post before that I have actually used it....
Yes, I still love it.  It is easy to use, easy to clean, and makes a perfect cup of tea!  The only thing I want to point out is that the 3 cups refers to 3 standard tea cups....not an actual 3 measured cups.   I found that it actually holds just under 2 measured cups.  The cool thing is that most loose teas can be re-steeped two or three I just pour more hot water in and I'm ready to go!  As you know, I bought mine in a little tea shop in Delphi, IN.  I knew I got a good price, but I didn't know how good till I did a little internet shopping.  I paid $28.95 plus tax.  The best price I could find is on Amazon for $37.18.  Quite the difference!  If you have an Amazon Prime membership....shipping is free.  I did notice that the Altus comes in a one cup size as well.  I'm wondering if the Delphi Tea Shop didn't get confused with their pricing and give me a 3 cup for a 1 cup price.  I hope that is not the case, but it does make me wonder.
Weather.....we had another storm system come through yesterday.  We were lucky....we had plenty of rain, thunder, and lightening...but not much wind.  I know some were not so lucky.  I have to say I'm a little nervous about traveling this year.  I just don't quite know what we will run into along our journeys.

  1. It does sound great and a very good price! I love tea but use a tea ball to hold the loose tea!
    Have fun
