Loose Leaf Tea Tumbler

Loose Leaf Tea TumblerBoth coffee and tea are staples in my diet, with breakfast, with baked goods and with dessert. I also often take an insulated mug or thermos out with me when I’m on the go, especially on chilly mornings. This works best with coffee, as tea bags left in thermoses will easily oversteep, and loose leaf teas take extra time in their preparation. When I saw this Loose Leaf Tea Tumbler, I immediately was drawn to it. The thermos’s lid has a specially designed tea steeper built into it for loose leaf teas! Simply fill the wire mesh basket with the tea of your choice, fill the thermos with hot water, screw the lid on and flip the whole thing upside down. With this design, the tea can steep in the water as long as you’d like and when it’s done, simply flip the thermos back over. This stops the steeping and you can drink your hot, perfectly-brewed tea as you might from any other thermos or teapot.

I also think that this, along with a couple of loose leaf teas, would make a fantastic gift for someone who likes tea, whether they already drink a lot of loose-leaf or want to venture out from pre-bagged teas into more exciting options.

    These are also easy to find in Chinatown. Now, I live right outside Philadelphia, so I can’t speak for every Chinatown. I’m so obsessed with shopping at the grocery stores and open markets there. I’ve picked one up before and they work amazingly. It’s a great tag-along. They’re not as flashy looking, most are just plain brushed steel or black, but they’re relatively cheap. It’s one of my favorite little gadgets.

    we are tea fanatics and friends at school often laugh at all of the paraphernalia I tote around….bags of tea, infusers, mugs, etc…..I had something similar to this mug one time, but the tea often tasted like plastic, so I gave up on it…now I just have a spill proof stainless mug. Another FANTASTIC tea invention is the ingenuiTEA you can find at my absolute favorite tea shop’s website http://www.gongfutea.com

    This is a great idea! That is one of the most common complaints with filling a thermos with loose leaf tea– over steeping it. Most people end up taking the tea out too early, or drinking it too quick! Thanks for sharing!
