The other day, I did some shopping with my spouse and kids. We stopped at Teavana, a delightful shop filled with teas of all sorts, adorable teapots and handy teapot warmers.
I meant only to try the delicious tea samples that the shop had on hand, but before I knew it, my husband was offering to buy me a teapot and teapot warmer, since I am constantly reheating my tea in the microwave daily.

The store has a variety of teapots for sale that go with Teavana’s teapot warmers. The warmers are fueled by a single tea light that can keep a pot of tea warm. (I guess I now know why those tiny candles are called “tea lights” – I never knew why they were called that before!)
I picked out a green 4-cup Rondo teapot (with removable mesh tea strainer) and a cast iron warmer that Teavana’s website says can keep a pot of tea warm for about an hour. I also picked out four black Japanese-style back teacups that match the cast iron tea warmer. I now have the entire set displayed on my kitchen counter, and the set is fittingly placed (in my opinion) beside a small green planter of potted bamboo.
The shop has a variety of teas (such as green tea, oolong and black), teapots, warmers, rock sugar, honey, teacups and infuser mugs that should make just about any tea enthusiast happy. Next time I stop there I might have to stock up on some new tea flavors!
