LIbre Loose Leaf Tea Glass Review!
Here is a great item for my neighbors who love their loose leaf tea. It is from Libre and is a glass 'n poly Loose Leaf Tea Glass. I love the design. It is not only functional, it is pretty too! It holds 9 oz. It is double walled. The inside being glass and the outside the poly. When you remove the lid, you will see the stainless steel filter that is built in side the second lid. This is really nice for carrying your tea around with you throughout the day. You remove the lid and filter and fill your glass with hot water to just below the rim of the glass. Screw on the filter and place 2-3 grams of loose leaf tea in the filter. Place lid on and tighten. (Be sure to allow to cool a little so steam does not cause leaks.) To steep the tea turn the glass upside down. When it is the color and strength you like, remove the lid and filter together and enjoy your tea. The leaves can be saved inside the filter to use again if desired. Now you can make some tea throughout the day, as long as you can heat water. Pretty nice, I think. And like I said it is also very pretty!
From Libre:Benefits of Loose Leaf Tea
"Loose leaf tea has a much smaller eco-footprint than teabags. Unlike ‘bagged’ tea, loose leaf tea is sold by weight, easy to dispose of and biodegradable. It also requires minimal packaging, unlike bagged tea, which requires significant packaging resources and generates considerably more waste with its bags, boxes and plastic wrappers.
Bagged tea is often made from loose leaf tea production’s tea dust or ‘fannings,’ resulting in a brew that is much less flavourful.
As loose leaf tea is sold by weight, only two to three grams are required for every cup, making it much more cost-effective than pre-packaged teabags."
Ever wondered about the caffeine in tea? See the chart at Libre. You might want to consider following Libre on Twitter. And on the left hand side of their website you can sign up for an email newsletter that will let you receive updates, specials and promotions.
This would be great in a gift basket with some different flavors of loose leaf teas. I know I would appreciate something like this. You can purchase the Loose Leaf Tea Glass for $24.99 right on their website. So stop by and see what they have to offer at Libre.
