Bodum Double Walled Tea Cups

Bodum Double Walled Tea CupI love double walled tea cups. Generally they don't have a handle and I love the smoothness and ability to hold the cup from any side.  Some of the best known are these Bodum double walled tea cups.

The double wall helps to insulate your hand from the heat of the liquid inside. And it also gives the tea a neat appearance as it appears suspended in thin air. They are made from borosilicate-glass to withstand both hot and cold liquids.

You can get just the Bodum tea cup or they also make an infuser tea cup that has a lid and steeping basket to make a single cup of loose tea. After steeping the lid holds the steeping basket to contain any liquid when the tea leaves drain. This version comes in black, green, orange, and red. Pretty and functional too!

There is also a handled version of this tea cup too, in case you prefer one.

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.
