Product Review from TeaEqualsBliss:

Anne and I are not only into tea and writing we are both into arts and crafts.  A couple of weeks ago we were chatting about a few new features to SororiTEA Sisters and we decided to include Tea Related Art and Crafting Supplies and Outlets within our Product Reviews!

We felt there was a lack of joining the two interests – Tea and Arts/Crafts – online and on other Tea Review Sites so we decided since we try and include anything and everything TEA here at SororiTEA Sisters we would incorporate them here from time to time.

I have been a fan of the designers over at MyGraficO for quite some time!  I have been and are on a few design teams and can’t get enough of their Digital Stamps, Clip Art, Digital Papers, etc.  Lately I have noticed that MyGraficO has one of the better selections of Tea Related Digital Arts & Craft Components online.  This made me VERY HAPPY!

As you can see from the images above I decided to make a card from this set!  I make at least 3 Handmade Cards a week and I’m always looking for Tea Clipart and Digital Stamps to incorporate in my projects!  I have been getting into some hybrid and altered paper projects as well and I’m sure I will blog about that down the road.  There are some really neat things you can do with these sets!  I have made Tea Swap Envelopes, Packages, Storage Containers, Album Title Pages, Altered Boxes and Tins, the list goes on and on!

Anyways, I hope you like my first card.  And I hope you take a moment to visit MyGraficO!  There are TONS of things on that site!  The Designers are great and the shop owner is even a TEA FAN herself!

If you would like to read more about Digital Stamps – what they are – and how to use them – take a look at this article!

Stay tuned to SororiTEA Sisters for more Tea Related Arts and Crafts along with more Tea Product Reviews!



Product Review: Libre Glass’n Poly Mug

Where to Buy:  Libre Tea

Product Description:

New! Libre glass ‘n poly mug – enjoy loose leaf tea while on the go, now with as easy hold handle!

The Libre glass ’n poly has a health-conscious glass interior for fresh taste and a durable polycarbonate exterior for ‘on the go’ durability. The stainless steel tea filter is surrounded by BPA free polypropylene as is the lid interior. Can be used 2 ways to brew and travel with loose leaf tea.

Product Review:

I really like my new mug from Libre Tea!  The inner lining is made of glass, and because there is a double wall (inside wall of glass, outside wall of polycarbonate), the outside never gets too hot to handle.  And did I mention that this mug has a handle?  This mug makes loose leaf tea-to-go easy!  It also makes a perfect device to steep blooming teas!

There are two ways this mug can be used to steep tea – the first is simply to put tea into the main chamber, add the hot/boiling water, and then screw on the strainer lid.  After the tea has steeped, simply sip the tea through the strainer.  I find that this method works best for tisanes:  teas that won’t grow bitter as they continue to steep.  My favorites using this steeping & sipping method are flavored honeybush blends and yerba maté.

The second way to steep tea with this mug is to screw the strainer lid onto the mug before you add the loose leaf tea, and then add the loose leaf into the strainer lid.  Pour in the hot/boiling water, screw on the top lid securely, and then carefully turn the mug upside down to allow the water to infuse into the tea leaves in the strainer lid.  Once the tea is finished steeping, carefullly turn the mug back over, and unscrew the lids.  The spent leaves will remain in the straining chamber so that the tea does not over-steep.  This second method works best for green teas and black teas, or any tea that you don’t want to continue to steep. (Such as hibiscus-laden teas!)

This glass is like the one that I've owned for a couple of years now.

When using this second method, I recommend using some caution.  The first time I attempted it, the tea leaked out of the screw top because I failed to screw the lid on securely.  Be sure to screw the lid on securely – making sure to line up the threads properly.  I also recommend placing the mug on a dishtowel … just in case!  Since that first time I used the second method to steep, I have had several successful steeps using the same method, so it really was user-error, not product error!  So, do take some care to avoid this mishap, and you should be fine!

I have owned a similar type glass for several years now, and I must note some significant differences between the original glass and the new mug.  First of all, this mug has a handle.  (That one was pretty obvious, huh?)  More importantly, at least for this tea enthusiast, is the finer mesh on the strainer lid.  This fine mesh works well with chai teas, keeping the fine-ground spices out of the liquor!  It also works well with rooibos.

I like this new mug very much, and I highly recommend it.  It makes tea brewing on the go so easy, I no longer have an excuse to stop at the coffee house and buy a cup of tea there for $3.00 a cup!
