drank Chamomile Citron by Tea Forte
709 tasting notes

Steep Information:
Amount: 1 loose tea single steeps! just rip open the packet and dump into the strainer
Water: fill to line with boiling water
Tool: Kati
Steep Time: a little over 5 minutes
Served: Hot

Tasting Notes:
Dry Leaf Smell: lemongrass, floral, mint
Steeped Tea Smell: mint, lemongrass, floral
Flavor: sweet, lemongrass, mint
Body: Medium
Aftertaste: tingly, minty, lemongrass
Liquor: translucent reddish-yellow

The tea was a nice zippy herbal tea to sip on. You had better like lemongrass and mint as they are the predominant flavors here.

Now here is my thoughts on the Kati system’s goal – introducing bagged / pyramid tea drinkers to loose tea with minimal fuss – I think it does a great job.

I was able, with only boiling water and a timer (a clock would do) to make loose leaf tea. It’s simple – place strainer in cup, dump in packet of pre-measured leaf, add hot water to fill line, wait the designate (on the packet) number of minutes, set strainer on lid and enjoy.

My number one and only complaint is I think a handle would improve the cup. It now is 3 for 3 on being too hot to pickup after steeping herbal teas for 5 minutes with boiling kettle water.

Resteep: just as strong and tasty

You got your Kati today, too, I see!!! :P I agree with the handle, but still pretty stoked about it! I like very much!

wins: it’s dishwasher safe, self contained, has the lip to keep the leaves from getting all over….so the handle is the only issue! sooooo close to perfect

i love it for work, for home i think it’s a little silly only because i usually drink 6 ounces or 22 ounces (for sharing) and 12 just is the wrong amount

Did you catch my post about this with the Walnut Green Tea I had earlier???

i did! i have no idea how you meander about the office without over brewing the crap out of your teas on a normal basis :) you kicked my butt into gear, i had all the pictures and i had no idea how to blob them into a post and i saw you got and enjoyed yours….so i figured the more links the better the google hits for them right? and this is a nice enough device it deserves it

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).

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
