LOL. Low carb, and I intermittent fast.. It helps keep me full, and it's tasty as hell in almost every tea I've put it in

I still have some birthday cake and chocolate cake to share..

Exactly! I am out and had to put milk in my tea tonight. . . so disappointing. . .

If either of them are good I'll trade you for some harney & sons cinnamon tea. It's my new obsession. Sadly it's bagged, but does come in a pretty tin.

FFFffffffffffffffffffffffffuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu uuu I forgot to make my thermos of tea for work tomorrow and now it's too late. Hopefully I'll remember to grab a bag of tea and a tea ball on the way out in the morning.

I put milk in nearly every tea (not in fruity or citrusy teas, though, and not in chamomile). If we have half and half or cream on hand, though, I'll use it instead. I'm hoping to go back on keto soon since I'm making more money now (and can actually afford meat and vegetables) so will be switching back to cream all the time when that happens. It took me years to try milk or cream in tea, and MAN have I missed out! I also drank tea with sweetener for years, and now I NEVER use sugar or sweetener in my tea. It's amazing, the teas have so many subtle and unique flavors that are just masked by the sweet. I bought a blueberry iced tea a few weeks ago, not realizing that it comes sweetened, and it was AWFUL. It was fresh brewed, full-leaf tea, but it had SOOOO MUCH sweet in it. Eww.

Sael if you have any samples you want to unload feel free to ship the on over .

And seriously Sweetened Condensed Milk I know it sounds weird but I was talked into trying it a few weeks ago and oh my! I use it in teas and coffee that I used milk or cream and sugar in and instead use one or two tea spoons of SCM it is so good and much less calories in the long run with out diluting the coffee and tea flavor!

Also IngenuiTEA the small (makes 1-2 cups) from Adagio is 19 but it is like 15 from Amazon. It is perfect for loose leaf teas tons of room for them to expand and infuse. It was my birthday present to myself I LOVE it!

JoLeigh, does the Adagio actually bring the water to a rolling boil? And can you adjust it, say for green and white teas that should be made with water that's brought to temp just before it boils?

I don't think it boils the water, you boil the water separately and pout it in. It's basically a mini teapot with a built in infuser.

Ah, that's better. I was thinking of something else I'd seen

That Breville looks awesome, but for $300 I think I'll keep my old whistling teakettle, lol!

Oh man, I know! I'm going to be selling my Keurig soon since I no longer use it, but sadly I don't think I can sell it for enough to buy that

I'm hoping for an electric kettle for Christmas since I don't have any other way to heat water in my room, but I do worry about getting the water hot enough. I may have to settle for white or green teas exclusively with it.
