Tonight I tried the Rooibos Tea that I brought back from Germany. I also decided to try out the new little teapot that I bought while in Germany earlier this month. This is a bit bigger teapot than the one that I usually use and it also has a pouring spout. However, the infuser and lid are the same.
Rooibos Tea is technically not a tea, but has some of the same properties. It comes from South Africa and had needle shaped leaves. I will have to write another post some day with more information about Rooibos.
Here the tea is brewing. You can see the small needle like leaves. This is actually not the best infuser to use as some of the leaves are smaller than the slits in the infuser and leak out into the pot.
I then took one of the little cups of Rooibos tea and enjoyed it while watching a TV show on my iPad. Here you can see two characters that are also drinking tea. However, I think that they are probably drinking oolong tea.
I have some good memories of sharing Rooibos tea with friends around the world, but that is a different post.
Have you had Rooibos tea?
