Hello again, it’s been a while hasn’t it. Lots of things going on this year which has meant MBT has taken a bit of a back seat but hopefully can get back into doing some more work on here and on my hobby. This year I have tried lots of lovely teas from a fabulous cafe in Manchester called North Tea Power, visited Fig & Sparrow just round the corner and a lovely posh tearoom called Rosylee which is a stones throw from both of the above. I’ve still yet to visit Tea 42 and Propertea – it seems like we are being inundated with new tea shops up here although that is no bad thing.

I’ve also just been away to Edinburgh and sampled the brilliant Eteaket who serve pots of tea that provide you with 3 – 4 cups. Excellent value for money and a lovely selection of teas that read like a cocktail menu. Well worth checking out if you are up that way but I can see this place needing bigger premises soon.

The tea maker has been getting good use although my only criticism is when it’s just enough tea for one you have to make about 500ml of tea at a time but the convenience factor is brilliant. Usually kitchen gadgets don’t keep me entertained for long but this has seen lots of use.

It’s good to be back.
