I love beautiful drinking bottles, they just make me feel more glamorous when I drink from them, more sophisticated I guess; so when I was contacted by the people at Libre Tea I was excited to check out their product.
When the bottle came and I opened the box and saw the gorgeous contents I was excited! This is one of the most beautiful glasses I have ever had the pleasure of drinking from, the lid has an inset sparkling Mother of Pearl looking background with a gold floral scene on top of that.
If you remove the lid you will see a strainer, this is so that you can put your loose leaf tea into the container and then screw the strainer on and you can drink without any of the leaves coming through. It really works too! I didn’t get any particles coming though, I even poured it into one of my kitchen glasses to make sure and there were no leaves.
Another way that you can use the Libre Tea is to put the leaves in the top of the strainer while filling the bottom with water; screw the strainer onto the bottle and then put the lid on, turn the bottle upside down and let your tea steep and then remove the strainer and drink straight from the glass.
If you read my post about BPA (or if you know about BPA) you know that it isn’t a great idea to drink from containers that are made of plastic. One of the best things about this tea glass is that it is glass and poly! It has glass inside to give you a fresh clean taste and a durable polycarbonate exterior which helps when you are “on the go.” The stainless steel filter is also surrounded by BPA free polypropylene and so is the interior of the lid. Just knowing that I am not drinking BPA makes me feel better and I always feel like drinking from glass tastes better too!
No matter how you use the Libre Tea it is really a great invention! It is beautiful, easy to clean and convenient. I think that anyone who loves tea (or just a beautiful drinking container) should check this out! This makes a fantastic gift, I already know I am getting a few for some tea lovers in my life this year. This could make a wonderful gift for a work friend, your boss or someone who you don’t know so well because it isn’t an intimate gift but it is one that I think anyone would love.
