reviewed Tea For One by Bodum
89 tasting notes

Decent infuser & cup set that can be interchanged with others. Great alternative to a teapot when I’m the only one drinking tea, or if my partner and I have different tea cravings at the time. I often use just the infuser filter and cover with an everyday mug, as I’m afraid of shattering the glass Bodum cup especially when it has no handle. However most mugs don’t retain heat as well as the double-walled glass of the Bodum cup. Its also visually appealing to have around.

If there was one thing I would change, it would be the filter material. A metal mesh would be better as I found with dark teas, it stains the white mesh of the filter and doesn’t get as clean as before after washing.

finding myself in hot water again and again…

I grew up in a tea drinking culture, but my parents were seriously hung up on jasmine tea and oolong tea, so I never really had much exposure to other teas. My horizons expanded when I moved to Japan and discovered genmaicha (roasted rice tea aka popcorn tea). after that, I discovered black teas, red teas, and flavoured teas, how different teas could be by the region, processing methods, water used.

Now I can’t get enough of it!

I experiment with different teas, blending them sometimes to see what the outcome would be. I find my tastes to be quite diverse, but run away from the more floral side of things. Tie Kwan Yin is probably the only one that most people seem to enjoy, that I don’t. Otherwise I am game for most teas. Fruity? love it. Smoky? Mmm. Earthy? bring it on! Light and vegetal? keep pouring!
