Today I would like to introduce you to the company called The Tea Spot based out of Boulder, Colorado. The company has been in business since 2004 and was founded by Maria Uspenski, a cancer survivor drawn to the health benefits of tea during her recovery.
When you shop at The Tea Spot you will find great Steepware, Loose Tea, and various Tea gifts. One of the things I like about this particular tea shop is that you will find lots of great educational info on their web site like: How to Steep Tea, Health Benefits of Tea, Cooking with Tea, etc.
My Review: The generous folks over at The Tea Spot sent me 2 products to review for all of you. First up, the Tuffy Tea Steeper which comes in 6 different colors. This wonderful tea steeper is made out of collapsible food-grade silicone which makes it great for traveling, keep it at the office or take it in your lunch box. It’s durable, collapsible, reusable and is compatible with most of your tea mugs and many teapots.
The lid of the tea steeper doubles as saucer for the brewing basket once your loose tea is done steeping. It is heat resistant, stain resistant and dishwasher safe. I received the “strawberry” color for the review which is a beautiful red color. This tea steeper can also be used as a coffee filter which I think is super cool.
I also received a tin of the Pink Rose Lemonade tea which contains Lemon Myrtle, Rose Petals, Chamomile, Spearmint and Lavender Flowers. I love that it’s caffeine-free so I can enjoy it any time of the day/night. This is a loose tea and you use 1 heaping teaspoon per 8 oz. of boiling water. You can enjoy it as a hot tea or as an iced tea.
I made myself a cup of hot tea last week using this loose tea and let me tell you, it’s delicious! I would consider it to me a medium-bodied tea that is very flavorful and you can definitely taste the spearmint. It’s a great tea for a “pick-me up” or use it in the evening to unwind. Fabulous!!!
A few days later I made a 2 quart pitcher of the tea and added just a 1/4 cup of sugar to make us some iced tea. I left it chill for 4 hours in the refrigerator and later that day I served it to my scrapbooking group. Everyone raved and raved about this iced tea! It was super good and the entire pitcher was gone in an hour!
