reviewed Kati loose tea system by Teaware
807 tasting notes

I got two of these (placed two separate orders) when they were offered FREE with purchase of one loose leaf tea canister! I got the bird song one with cucumber mint and a tree one with blueberry merlot. I am so happy to have them. I will probably gift one or keep the extra around for when my daughter or husband desires to share in some tea with me which is happening more often these days! Yay!
I really love the bird song one and glad I grabbed it up since it seems to have been the most popular choice when they offered this special!
Pros and Cons: Love the lid to keep steam in while steeping. Perfectly fitting mesh strainer and lid fits perfectly on top. Strainer is not as fine of mesh as it could be so some tiny particles get through leaving grainy texture at bottom of cup but it will be excellent with larger leaf teas! Double walled keeps tea warm long enough but not THAT long, and is too hot to hold when water is first poured. Although most people like to let tea cool for a minute or two before drinking so this should not be an issue for most.
Seems durable but too soon to tell.
Wonderful design – very pretty!
Would I BUY one? Yes if I had the extra money sure I like the convenience of being able to just pour the boiling water over the strainer, cover, and steep, not having to get back up to go to the tea kettle! I also like not having to clean the tea kettle after a steep! However knowing me, “extra” money would go to tea instead. I am really happy I was able to splurge and get these while they were free with tea purchase!!

Most of my reviews will be “snippits” of full reviews that can be found at http://sororiteasisters.com/

I usually try to post the exact date that the full reviews will post however sometimes post dates need changed so it may not always be correct. Generally the dates are correct however.

About Me:

Most of my reviews, although not all, will be quite favorable of the tea. This is not because all tea is excellent, but more so because I generally will not waste my time on an inferior tea. If I do not care for a tea I won’t continue to drink it let alone spend time reviewing it. If you see a review by me you basically know it is a quality tea. Granted it may not suit your specific taste buds, we all like different things, but as for a tea on the whole it is a good one, from a good company.

I am a spiritual advisor by profession.
I have two “young adult” children.
Four cats and three dogs.

Some of my hobbies include gardening, essential oil therapy, natural perfumery with essential oils, and cooking.

I look for complexity overall in any tea, dimensions to the flavors.

I believe tea should evoke a feeling, thought, emotion, or attitude.

I enjoy most all oolongs, blacks, whites, and greens.

I always love to try a good yellow tea.

I favor unadulterated teas but I do have my longings for a good flavored tea now and then so I don’t rule them out by any means!

I enjoy green rooibos don not like red rooibos.
