You can change the setting for more delicate tea like green ect from just a nob on the bottom and its color coded.

Looks like a handy gadget.

Something to look at once I get on some kind of financial footing again. $60 buys me 50 pounds of rice and 30 pounds of leg quarters for the dogs, lol

I'm another who just makes do with cheap lipton black tea. In the microwave too But hey, when you're broke, you do what you gotta do. I use a little sugar and honey in mine. Been drinking it that way since I was knee high to a short sheep. My papaw is a tea lover and got me hooked.

I hear you, Torch. I wouldn't have any good tea except a friend sent me a stash -- and I've been hoarding it The rest of the time my ultra-inexpensive Luzianne Creole coffee is my brew (less than $4 for the just-under-a-pound brick and you use half as much of it as you do regular coffee).

And I think it tastes awesome

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!

I got a TON of tea for Christmas! A bunch of random ones from the Spice Merchant from my brother, and some Republic of Tea chocolate peppermint from my parents. I also got an electric kettle (which DOES bring the water to a full rolling boil!) and a glass tea pot with a tea press infuser. When you press the tea down, it seals it off completely so it can stay in the pot without making it bitter. I also got a set of drawers to keep it all in. OH! And some tea tins!

The chocolate peppermint is actually really good. They had it out for samples at World Market the other day, and I didn't much care for it, but it was cold, had been out all day, and I got the last drops from the bottom of the pot. Freshly made with a splash of milke it's REALLY good!

We're generally broke, but I hoard my tasty tea when I can pick some up, lol.

I somehow though it would be a good dea to drink and ENTIRE pot of tea while watching the Doctor Who Christmas special (the pot only lasted about halfway through...shame).

I tried Gold Rush this time, and it was VERY good. Just a hint of fruit, with a rich, pure black aroma. It's not TOO fruity, and is perfect with just a splash of milk. Scroll down a bit, here: http://www.spicemerchant.com/cgi-bin...79&product=Tea

Also, I just realized I can order from The Spice Merchant online and pick it up in the store! Brilliant!

Does anybody here really like Rooibos teas? I have several I got to sample, and I just...ew. I tried earl grey, orange, and plain, and just no. I do like the honeybush ones, but not the regular rooibos.

If you actually like this stuff that smells and tastes like rotten tomatoes, PM me your address and I'll be happy to send it to you.

ETA: That is as long as you don't mind that they're opened. Even the ones I haven't tasted are open because as soon as I get a tea package I have to open them all and smell them
