    Nice post Jo. Feeling that way too. Good to know that I will never run out of tea to be tasted. Very interesting tea ware – the top is some sort of funnel? does it have straining holes? I tend toward red teas like Qimen or Fujian’s Tan Yang during my “cabin fever” days.

      Linda, Thank you. Yes,It is yixing and the top is a funnel with a strainer on the bottom. Qimen is also one of my “go tos” during this season. I don’t think I’ve had Fujian’s Tan Yang I will have to do some research.

    Cabin Fever is for people who don’t drink tea. Surely a committed tea drinker, on finding four feet of snow outside there door, will whoop with delight, get out a good book and put the kettle on.
    As long as you have a large stash of tea – as you do – then surely being snowed in is perfectly acceptable?

      Being in the city where the snow quickly turns to a muddy slushy affair and the concrete streets are icy, it is not as nice and somewhat dangerous. Although I enjoy the down time, life must go on and one must deal with the elements.

    I need a true winter to drink a true winter tea.

    Jo, what kind of tea vessel are we looking at here? It looks fascinating but I can’t make out what it is?
    As to the snow, stay safe up north. I was thrilled to have several days of snow here, but we get it so rarely that I treasure every flake.
    Love the photos, thanks for sharing,

    Oops. sorry I hadn’t seen Linda’s question when I wrote mine. It’s an amazing piece of teaware!
