BYOT (Bring Your Own Tea)


"BYOT is a convenient, compact, and cute pouch that carries 10 servings of loose leaf tea and 10 easy-to-use biodegradable steeping bags."


"With BYOT, all you need is a cup of hot water to enjoy great (non-crushed, whole and organic) tea when and wherever you want it."

Sanctuary T Shop is a tea restaurant (below)


in Gotham and this is its online incarnation.

As it were.

Does incarnation go in both directions?


The BYOT online shop is here.

Oh Moleman, I generally drink my tea fast enough that it doesn't matter!

Yeah, they get oxidated a little quicker, but if you are not in a tea ceremony that you are partaking in a mindful exploration of the substance, you most likely won't tell. It is like wine, 99% of the people I know really can't tell the difference between the $5 stuff and the really good stuff. I can...but I don't care. When you are drinking out of the bottle, it really doesn't matter (says the guy that was gifted some expensive tasters riedel glasses and only brings them out when he needs to impress the coeds).

What you want is http://www.nmteaco.com/Tea-Pockets_p_142.html - empty "tea pockets" that you can fill with your tea of choice. I'm enjoying my 4th or 5th cup of Ti Kuan Yin Oolong this morning.

Oh, Clifty - if the tea you are carrying isn't sealed in foil/mylar - you might want to replace those teabags....

How are you bringing your own tea if you buy it from the place? Aren't you BUYING-YOT? Other than that, what makes it different from the hundreds of other places you can buy loose tea from? I don't get it...I've kept a dozen tea bags in my backpack for years...
