Took my big new Bodum travel press to work the other day filled with this. It was a late closing shift and I needed all the energy I could get.
I was unsure how this would do in the travel press, since the leaves stay in the press until you’re finished the beverage. This seemed like a recipe for oversteeping to me. Luckily it actually melded the flavours together better than a regular steeping. By the time I went to drink this several hours after steeping it, the temperature was perfect and there was SO much berry flavour and the roastiness of the mate really came through.
As a snack with this tea, I ate a cranberry almond granola bar. It was a perfect complement to the tea.
As for the “rocket” part of this blend, I did feel more awake for the rest of the evening (even once I got home and wanted to go to bed, haha)
