Another sample I received from AmazonV today.

I was so excited to try this one as I could smell it immediately once I opened the package. It smells delightful, raspberry, cream, baked goodness.

I brewed it for 8 minutes with nearly boiling water. The liquor is a brilliant red brown in my clear glass mug.

It smells divine, fruity bake-y with a hint of creaminess to it. The taste is berry, but not a tart ripe berry, more of a calm baked in raspberry coffee cake with cream cheese in the middle. I think this tea gets across its flavor quite accurately, I just don’t think it’s the tea I was craving this evening. May add a tad of sweetner to see if this improves.

There is about 1tsp of sediment at the bottom of my cup even after straining with a fine mesh infuser. Rooibos/Honeybush teas sure are dusty. If that’s what it is.

What did you use to steep it? For Rooibos and Honeybush I’m sure to use a paper filter (I use the ones from Adagio) and that eliminates a lot of the sediment/dust/grossness at the bottom of the mug.

I used one of those tea balls that is fine mesh screen. I’ll try paper filters next. Also have a finum basket on the way, so maybe that would help too.

The finum basket is nice, but the pesky little sediments will still fall through.

Meghann M

Drats, I thought that might solve it. As long as the leaves don’t still get through. I need something to infuse the tea other than a teaball when my french press is in use (i’ve been using it to cold brew tea).

Finum seems to trap the rooibos really well. I love it. I actually use that the most now. For the most part I stopped using the my silly ingenuiTea. Washing that was too much of a hassle. Finum basket is a quick process.

Live in the cornfields of IL, but not too far from the city. Expecting a baby any day now (due Oct 24 2011). Sticking to mainly herbal and low caffeine teas for now. Trying to encourage my husbands tea drinking, but he adds so much sweetner he may as well just drink diet pop. I love trying new teas, and will try any tea once.
