One of the ever going battles with loose leaf tea drinkers is how to drink their tea on the go. There are so many options out there now that it is sometimes hard to pick just one. I have a few in my collection and I love them all for different reasons.
This particular tea steeper from Dave and Solomons Tea is unique. Here is why. Most of the steepers that are portable that I own are glass. This particular one is plastic. I’m not going to lie, I really like that. I know. I know. Glass is how tea should technically be drank but there is something comforting to the fact that one slight move won’t break my steeper and I’m left with a mess on my hands.
So this tea steeper works similar to a lot of the different options. Scoop your tea into the bottle, fill with water, screw on the lid and you are good to go. This steeper works great for both cold brewed and hot brewed tea. The bottle does get a bit hot so if you have a cozy for the bottle, I’d recommend it. I have a few I picked up on Etsy and I’ve even made myself a few (with my mom’s guidance of course!)
I have found that even though this tea steeper has a lovely fine mesh strainer at the top that you screw on, fine pieces of tea and inclusions do find there way out. Not a huge deal. Something that is totally normal for most steepers. I have yet to find one that strains every single stray tea out. Nothing that I would say would detour me from continuing to use this steeper at all.
All in all, a great alternative to the steepers out there. I do find that I love this one for cold brewing more than hot brewing but I’ve used the tea ware for both. Easy to clean, easy to use, just an all around easy option. I find myself reaching for this one and another steeper more than the others I’ve had in my collection for years. But really, you can never have too many pieces of tea ware in your collection!
