Rooibos Tea

Tonight I tried the Rooibos Tea that I brought back from Germany. Rooibos TeaI 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.

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?
