|Bring the Ocha Teapot on the road with you, and enjoy a great cup of tea anytime|
Why do you want to brew your own tea or coffee in a hotel room?
- You can brew exactly the flavor and strength of tea or coffee that you prefer
- You don't have to worry if the hotel is going to provide tea bags or a coffee maker
- Brew as much tea or coffee as you like
- A travel-friendly tea pot like the Ocha teapot
- A microwave-safe mug or cup
- Tea or coffee
- Cream or sugar if desired
|Get a microwave-safe mug or cup|
Scoop one teaspoon of tea into the teapot (or more or less, depending on how strong you like your tea and what kind you are using).
Fill your mug with water. This way, you won't overfill the teapot.
Heat the mug in the microwave for a few minutes, depending on how hot your like your tea and how powerful the microwave is.
Pour the hot water into the top of the teapot.
|Let the tea steep for 3 to 5 minutes|
Then set the Ocha teapot on your mug, and watch as the tea drains in. Then it's ready to enjoy!
Most hotels that provide a coffee maker and coffee will also provide packets of cream and sugar, and I grab extras in case the next hotel room doesn't have them.
Clean up is easy. Just pull out the filter, rinse it and the teapot, and dry everything before packing it back into your luggage.
And it makes coffee, too! Use two scoops of coarsely-ground beans. I find it helps to swirl the teapot around (carefully so as not to spill) after the coffee has steeped a minute or two. Perfect for when you only want one cup of coffee.
So how do I like the Ocha Teapot? I like the Ocha tea pot a lot. Not just because it's convenient when there's nothing else to make tea with while traveling, but because it makes a delicious cup of tea. And I also drink a lot of coffee, so being able to brew a single cup is very handy. I will continue to use the Ocha teapot even when I get back home next month.
TIP: Look for local tea shops as you travel, and try out some local or unique flavors. Having a teapot with you gives you another way to enjoy your travels.
