I’ve been loving loose leaf tea lately. Ever since I got my teapot for my birthday, I’ve been on the hunt for some good tea to brew.
It’s actually been a little tricky to find loose leaf tea, and some that’s not super expensive. The best place I’ve found with a nice tea selection that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg is World Market. Here are two teas that I’ve been in love with.
The Ginger Peach by The Republic of Tea is sooo yummy. I’ve had this before in tea bags, but it’s even better in loose leaf. And the World Market brand Moroccan Mint is mellow and comforting. I also love that it’s green tea without an overwhelming green tea flavor. I love green tea for it’s health benefits, but I’m not always in the mood for it’s unique flavor.
This is what the ginger peach looks like. So pretty and fragrant.
Scoop some into your pot, pour on some boiling water and let it steep.
It’s a little hard to figure out how much water to pour in since there aren’t any markings on the teapot…and you end up with less water in the end since some of it gets trapped in the basket.
But it usually always comes out delicious. Push down the plunger and pour away.
Perfect for a rainy day and a good book.
And, you have to drink it out of a teacup of course.
