Russian Morning # 24 Tea (loose leaf) in a Travel Mug

. at . Leave a comment

This travel mug is 5 1/4 inches tall and holds 9 ounces of liquid. The all over paisley design is attractive and the two words, “Amazing Grace,” help me focus on Truth. This was a gift and came with several chocolate bars. ūüôā

Day 11 (January 21)

Day 11. Russian Morning #2 is made by Kusmi Teas. This tea is a loose tea and was steeped in that steeping spoon.

I initially drank this hot and plain.

  • The blend of these three [Chinese, Ceylon, and Indian black] unflavoured orthodox teas makes for a well-balanced tea that is full-bodied enough to be ideal for drinking in the morning.”
  • Steep it for 3-4 minutes.
  • And I concur. This is a WINNER. It is similar to English Breakfast¬†in its smoothness.
  • I put in a bit of milk to make the colour like caramel. Yummm. It softened the mellow flavour even more.
  • This is the first loose tea I have tried during this series. Out of all the teas I have, I only have 4 or so loose leaf teas.
    • The one con to using this mug for hot drinks, is that since I like my drinks HOT, my hands get burned when I use this mug.
  • I had an awkward time trying to scoop up the loose tea with the steeping/strainer spoon.

Your Turn . . .

  • Are you in the loose leaf, tea bag, or don’t care camp when it comes to brewing your teas? So far, I do not like the strainer spoon. I do like the ease of using tea bags.
  • Do you use travel mugs for your tea too?
I didn't like using the strainer spoon so I looked up instructions to make my own tea bags. I used this sight here.

I didn’t like using the strainer spoon so I looked up instructions to make my own tea bags – 6 of them. I haven’t used them yet.

Have you ever made your own tea bags? I have! Go here to see. At this post I will give you some links I looked at. Be sure to let me know if you make some tea bags too.
