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)

I don’t drink tea every day, but I do love tea and trying out different flavours. My favorite is black tea, followed by white and mate teas. I enjoy rooibos and oolongs, but haven’t tried enough of them yet to determine how much I like them compared to other types. I don’t like straight green tea, but if it has a good flavour added to it I can enjoy it quite a lot.
Mostly I drink DavidsTea since its Canadian and they tend to have stronger teas and more interesting flavors than other places I’ve tried. I don’t care for what I’ve tried from Teavana for the most part; their teas seem weak and overpriced in general as far as I can tell. The exception is My Morning Mate, which is incredible.
My city has not a single specialty tea shop, so DavidsTea online ordering is my friend. I highly recommend their Perfect Mug. It really is perfect. Nice thin lip, large hand, larger than average mug without being too big, and I have it in clear so I can see the beautiful colours of my teas as they steep. The strainer that comes with it is my favorite because it doesn’t let any tea through, and its metal and dishwasher safe. Love it.
