I reread all of the previous posts and enjoyed all the comments all over again. Some of us really like to drink tea!

I would like to try drinking Rooibos tea. I am asking for recs and pointers. Who can help?

PS (I continue to love my Tao of Tea brand Assam. It is truly lovely loose tea. If you are a connoisseur of fine tea, I want to encourage you to try it. )

I don't like rooibos on its own, but enjoy it when it's used as a base for other flavors.

I love tea, and all five of my teapots get a lot of use. My great grandmother's lovely teapot is only a couple of cups, so it gets the least use, but it's always out for people to admire. My four-cup daily teapot is right by the stovetop, and it's perfect for just me. The teapots to the china and Christmas dishes are six cups, so I bring them out when company's here, as the four-cup is too small then.

I prefer loose tea, so I use a filter/infuser very similar to this one: https://www.amazon.com/finum-63-421-...ld+tea+infuser

Or, when the tea leaves are large enough, or have been rolled like Gunpowder or Dragon Phoenix Pearl, I just drop them into the teapot, and pour through a silver tea strainer that we inherited from Spousal Unit's grandmother.

My favorite is Lapsang Suchong, but there are so many varieties out there that I just have to keep on tasting.

I tried Rooibos. I bought a box of Choice brand teabags.

Meh.

I prefer tea, herbal tea, and rooibos tea, in that order.

I moved my teapot next to my cooktop and kettle just today. It makes the most sense during the colder months. I make tea every day, and the most sensible place for it is next to the stove.

We continue to enjoy our Tao of Tea Malty Assam. I think it is the best tea I've ever drunk.

Have a traditional Japanese cast iron pot. It works well.
