What did I buy?

November 25th prompt for the NaBloPoMo challenge – Tell us about the last thing a person or an advertisement convinced you to buy 

Anyone who knows me knows that I am a huge tea drinker and my favourite place is David’s Tea (check them out!).  Okay, I lied; my favourite place to shop is Chapters/Indigo but David’s is a close second.  Their teas are a little pricier than what you buy in the grocery store but they are a luxury that I enjoy when the budget allows it. 

I get their promotions by email so I always know where my hard-earned dollars are going to next.  Back in August, they had a promotion going on their travel mugs where, if you bought one, you got a free 50 gram bag of the tea of your choice.  That’s a seven to eight dollar saving so you can bet that I made a beeline to the nearest store.   

I bought their Timolino Travel Cup (12 ounce, $29.50) and absolutely love it!!  Yeah, it’s a little pricey and I definitely cringed a bit but, boy oh boy, was it worth every penny!  This thing absolutely does NOT leak even a little bit which is a problem that I have had with other, cheaper, travel mugs. 

Look, no handle so it fits in your cup holder!

Also, it keeps the tea hot for hours.  I make a tea before I leave home at about 6:30 - 6:45 and it’s still hot when I finally finish drinking it at about 9:30. 

Obviously, I’m a sucker for advertising from this store but, in this case, that’s a good thing  



  1. THanks for the tip..hubs is a big fan of tea..I'll have to check that site out

    1. They have so many teas that everyone can find flavours that they like. They have great gadgets too ;)

  2. I need a cup like that to keep my coffee hot. The ceiling fans cool it off too quickly. Great idea and that sounds like a nice treat for yourself!

    1. Definitely, it would be good for any hot beverage; I'm just hooked on tea

      I think that we all need to splurge on ourselves once in a while. It's good for the soul :)
