Lovely Luna

Here is the result of my emotional and impulsive purchase several days ago. It's the Jenaer Luna teapot and warmer, and I'm glad I got it! You may recall that I panicked because Jenaer Glass (a German company) is going out of business. Such good quality things they make. I've come to find out the closure is from pressure from lower-cost manufacturing in Asia. It's just not profitable for Jenaer anymore.

I must say, I was wondering if the Luna would be as nice as the Mikado in terms of the no-drip feature. Yes, it is! Absolutely no drips! The tea steeping is Spring 2005 High Mountain, a green from Taiwan.

I also purchased the Luna pot and warmer. It's a unique shape compared to the usual round teapots. For those who haven't yet enjoyed the meditative quality of watching tea steep in one of these pots, I highly encourage it.

I have a Luna teapot, but the plastic strainer that came with it has fallen apart. I'd like to get a glass replacement, but I'm not having much luck searching on the web (except for landing here). I guess the problem is that Jenaer is out of business. Does someone else make a strainer/infuser that would work? Thanks...Robert

I guess it would help if I left my email: 1robmacias@gmail.com. By the way, I enjoyed browsing through your blog. Sounds like a nice, peaceful life. We're living the wet life down here in Austin, Texas right now...
