TBH I kinda wish there was actually raspberry leaf in this tea.

Today I made it in a travel mug and I’ve brought it to work. It tastes a bit more like dirt, probably because of the echinacea root. And it’s sourer. More sour. Whatever. Probably due to the increased heat preservation of the travel mug VS a regular mug.

I still kinda like it. And I really hope I don’t get sick.

I hope you don’t get sick either! and I know what you mean about increased heat preservation changing flavours. Weird how that works.

OMGsrsly

Thanks, Indigobloom!

And Keychange, I also think that a cold ceramic mug cools the water a lot more and faster than a vacuum sealed metal one.

keychange

Yeah exactly. And the heat retention affects the flavor, even after the tea in a steel mug has cooled…

OMGsrsly

Yup. :) In some ways I’m glad my steel mugs don’t fit my steeping baskets. Forces me to brew in a cup or a small tea pot before pouring my tea into the mug.
