What To Do With A @Retro1951 Tornado Tube?

If you happen to have a Retro51 Tornado pen, you probably have one of these tubes. Unless you have one of the new ones... but if you're a true fan, you already have one, so you have one of these tubes. In which case, you can reuse it. I have used mine for several things that are not entirely useful but they're fun. Such as: toting ink sample vials, and toting loose tea.

Good ideas! What refill do you use in your Tornado? I'm not in love with the rollerball it shipped with.

You sure that's tea? :~}

I love the Schmidt EasyFlow 9000M refills - especially the blue (I tend to prefer blue over black refills though. Nothing wrong with the black).

Awesome. Thanks!

Looks like a Rooibos?

Right you are. It's called Ivory Coast - absolutely delicious. From Cornelia Bean in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

Ha, where'd you get the spoon from? Seems spoons for loose tea aren't quite as easy to find as one may think.

yup definitely looks like a Rooibos blend :-)

New ones don't have tubes? I just got a new one, and it had a tube? Huh?

Azizah Asgarali said...

Some of them have those new eco tubes?

Azizah Asgarali said...

The spoon is all the way from Winnipeg :) I'll keep an eye out for them though. Have you checked Teavana?

Great repurposing though you may get a delay from the TSA...
