Oh my did the tiny rooibos chips make a mess inside the zarafina! They escaped the mesh basket and got everywhere.

On the other hand this is a delicious caffeine free dessert tea.

Orange colored water, this is not resteepable – at least at whatever time the zarafina uses for strong.

So the Zarafina is not good when it comes to rooibos? Please, when you do get the Breville, experiment with rooibos too and see how they fair in it? I don’t drink a lot of rooibos, but, I do occasionally like to have them… but I don’t like cleaning up after them….

@LiberTEAS usually it’s OK – for example I made the rootbeer float from TheNecessiTeas in the zarafina and it was fine, it must depend on how fine the rooibos is chopped. I’ll certainly make one of each of my favorites in it! (rooibos, green, black, white)

Yeah, I’ve made several of TeaFrog’s rooibos’s in the Zarafina and not had a problem, either. I suspect this one is just very fine! Wow!

@denisend you know the little gap around the plastic spike in the center of the basket? that’s where the chippies escaped

Bio

I am The Devotea USA. I love caffeine! I prefer tea to coffee. I prefer my flavors to be in your face, not subtle. I plan to use this blog to keep track of the teas I have tried.

I get my daily dose of caffeine from Starbucks (Grande soy no water chai latte).

~~~~~~~~*~
0-25=Bleh! not again if it were free
25-50=Acceptable, if it were free or there were limited other tea options
50-75=I might purchase this tea from time to time, or select it while out
75-100=A staple in our cupboard from now on, I will purchase and keep purchasing
