The most amazing souvenir from China is my travel tea set. It allows me to cook tea in hotel rooms without having loads of tools and ingredients with me – in a small bag I have all what I need: 6 cups, a water cup, a tea cup and its lid. Just now I cooked some water, let it cool down a bit, washed the tea,
enjoyed the aroma, let it soak a bit and just had my first sip of the fresh brewed tea.
I have no idea what I am drinking, I suppose it is roibush tea
I got from Jimmy’s family. These – only Chinese labeled – tea bags are handy and small; they just contain loose leaves. It is far better that the instant teas and coffees offered by most of the hotels. Even when I like traveling a lot and take advantage out of the ease and
comfort of a full serviced hotel room I still need some few rituals and
items which make it less anonymous and less stereotype.
I bought a few weeks ago a travel water cooker too, after I decided never to touch one offered by a hotel again. These for mostly two reasons: internet guides how to cook / wash / do whatever using a water cooker and because I had one with a maintenance label (good!) which was dated to March 2008 (eew!).
So that’s 2 more items for my travel essentials for a trip taking longer than 3 days.
