Kati Loose Tea System

Kati Loose Tea SystemRecently I received a package from Tea Forte and I am really excited to share it with you. It contained the new Kati Loose Tea System and samples of their new individually packaged loose leaf tea. They have created a simple way to brew loose tea.

It is a double walled ceramic mug that contains a stainless steel steeping basket and is topped with a lid to retain heat. The mug holds 12 ounces and is dishwasher safe (always a plus for me). You can get it in white, green, or with a grass print.

Tea Forte KatiThe perfect pairing is Tea Forte's Loose Tea Single Steeps. They have packaged five of their popular loose teas in easy to open, single serving packets. All you need to do is tear off the top, pour into the steeping basket, and add hot water. Green Tango, Chamomile Citron, Earl Grey, Forte Breakfast, and Ginger Lemongrass are available.

I created a little video review to show you more:

I really enjoyed the Green Tango. It is an organic green tea that is described as a Chinese Jade Wing green tea that is blended with South African green honeybush and tropical mangoes. A luscious blend that is smooth, fruity, and naturally sweet. I liked blend of peppermint and ginger that lingered on my tongue after drinking.

I highly recommend this mug. It is both beautiful and practical. I usually use mugs with handles, but I really like the smoothness of this mug and the double walled style means my hand is not overly hot when holding it.

Decaf Loose Tea

Decaf Loose TeaDecaf Loose Tea is a great choice when you are looking for a caffeine free tea or loose tea for children. Some of my favorite ones are Rooibos tea blends. There are also a large number of herbal varieties. Let's talk about my favorite ones.

  • American Tea Room St. Tropez - This is a green rooibos that is blended with red currants, rose petals, and blue mallow blossoms. This is a great tea that is great hot or iced.
  • Teavana Rooibos Peach Bloom Tea - This is a blend of green and red rooibos that also includes peach and safflower.  I also love to blend it with their Strawberry Kiwi Herbal Tea.
  • Chamomille Tea - When ever I want to relax or want a good night's sleep, then I reach for the Chamomille tea in the cabinet. Typically made from the flower blossoms, this sweet tea is known for its calming properties.
  • Teavana Strawberry Lemonade Herbal Tea - With summer coming, thoughts are turning to iced tea. This is a great tea blend for that and your kids will love it.

  • Signature White Gift Set - This beautiful tea set comes with a tea pot, two tea cups, three types of American Tea Room teas (including some of my favorites), and three rock candy sugar swizzlers. It comes wrapped in white linen and a navy satin ribbon. The teas include Martinique, Brioche, and Immortal Green.
  • Tea Pot - I really think you can never have too many tea pots, especially when getting a style or design that you do not have already. Does Mom have a Cast Iron tea pot yet? These are long lasting, traditional Japanese tea pots that are known for their durability and heat retention.
  • Flowering Tea - Instead of flowers, get your Mom these blooms instead. These hand tied teas unfurl to reveal a beautiful tea blossom. You definitely want to steep these in clear glass so that you can watch it happen. Plus it comes in a delightfully wrapped gift box.

Whatever Mother's Day Tea Gift you decide on, she is sure to love the thought and care you placed into picking it out. You can not go wrong with any of the the items above or any of the fine teas available from the American Tea Room.

Children’s Tea Set

Children's Tea SetMy daughter received this very cute Children's Tea Set for her birthday last week. It is made by Schylling and is a porcelain tea set that she can really use.  Just like Fiestaware, it is brightly colored.

It is perfect for brewing her own tea. She can either put a tea bag or two inside along with hot water or a loose tea blend and then pour over a strainer. It is also great for juice, water or lemonade too. Whatever her tea party guests prefer.

Haba Tea BagsHere is her little table set to enjoy tea and cookies with her dolls. The cookie set is from Melissa and Doug and those are Haba tea bags. Perfect for a pretend tea party. The plates are from Ikea.

If you are looking for a children's tea set, then definitely consider this one. We love it. It is available from Amazon. They have also been very reliable and offer fast shipping.

P.S. Here is a close up shot that my daughter took and really wanted to share with you all. Enjoy!

Steepware Steeping Mug Review

Steepware Steeping MugOne of my favorite tea cups is my Steepware Steeping Mug. I use it pretty much every day to brew loose tea. The reason I love it so much is that in comes in three pieces: mug, lid, and steeping basket.

It is all ceramic and the steeping basket rests inside of the mug perfectly. The lid helps keep the tea warm while it is steeping. Then you just flip it over and it creates a cradle for the steeping basket to sit in. That way you don't get a wet mess on your counter or desk when you pull the steeping basket out.

About the only thing I don't like about it is that the holes in the steeping basket are just the right shape and size for rooibos tea to go through. After the tea is done brewing though, I generally let it sit for a few minutes to cool anyway and the tea leaves that do get through sink to the bottom of the mug.

If you brew loose tea on a regular basis or interested in trying it, then get a Steepware Steeping Mug today.

P.S. I tried the tip from Jessica and it worked like a charm. I added the hot water to the cup first and then added the steeping basket with Rooibos tea into it. Very cool to watch the water swirl into. Anyway there is only a small number of tea leaves in the bottom of my cup. This tip has made a great mug even better!

Electric Tea Kettles

The electric tea kettle is an integral part of our kitchen. It is used every day even in the hot summer months. I love making iced tea in the summer and I believe the best kind is when you steep the tea leaves in hot water and then cool it with ice cubes or in the refrigerator overnight.

Our electric tea kettle is used for making tea, hot chocolate, and sometimes instant noodles. Here are some of the best sellers on Amazon.com. Order one today and simplify your tea making.
