If you were talking about the tea I think you were, it's pronounced "ROY-bus. Several years ago, a friend and I were in Vermont one weekend & went on a farm tour that included high the sheep barn. LOL It was really fun. The family who did it taught about different teas throughout the course of the thing, and you got to watch a sheep herding demo as well! Not your everyday high tea, to be sure. What I remember about Roiboos is that it is from South Africa and technically isn't really a tea. Our food coop sells it, though, and I pick some up occasionally. I have a little steeping basket that fits over the top of a mug & you pour the water in over it, let it steep & then just take the basket out of the mug. The leaves are still messy (I don't thing you can get around that with loose tea), but probably a little easier to clean out than what you described. :-)

Hi Lisa, Thank you for all the information! That is exactly the "tea" I have. I read the label again and it says tea several times, but then it says "a plant if prepared like a tea". Very interesting and I love the idea of high tea in a barn :) Plus you can never go wrong with a sheep herding demonstration!
I think I may try a mesh basket next. I was hoping this tea kettle/steeper would work out, but the holes in the metal steeping cylinder are just too big for these particular leaves.

I'm also trying to learn to knit without looking. I found this video very helpful but I practice with larger yarn and needles. I can "feel" them better until I get use to my own rhythm.

Spinatic-Thank you for the link! That is certainly something I will practice.
