Jeff and I have our birthdays are December, but we got to celebrate a bit in February when my parents came to visit. You see, they finally (just kidding, Mom) gave us our joint birthday gift.
We are tea drinkers. Coffee drinkers on occasion. This 12-cup French press was made for coffee and tea. But I think it was made for me.
I put the loose tea (usually Daily Health Herb Tea) in the pot along with xylitol for sweetening — pour boiling water over all up to the top — put the press on the top (but don’t press down) — let it steep for 5 to 10 minutes — press down — all the tea is trapped under the fine sieve — pour out hot, healthy, yummy tea into each cup. No mess, no drips, no loose tea leaves. The press insulates the contents, keeping them hot for 2 hours. It cleans up so easily. I hand dry it after washing to prevent hard water spots.
Thanks, Mom & Dad!
