Libre Tea Glass {Review + Giveaway}

Monday, May 6, 2013

Hello friends! Today I am so happy to share with you an amazing product that I recently found! 


I am a HUGE tea drinker. I don't drink coffee - it gives me heartburn and I hate that awful after-taste that just seems to linger even after brushing my teeth or chewing on gum. So tea is my "morning wake-up" drink. I always make sure to bring a mug to work filled with tea. However, I always use tea bags because I never found a product that has a built-in strainer for the loose leaves. I love purchasing tea leaves in bulk - it's both economical and environmental! Plus the Teavana store in the mall has a wide variety of tea leaves to purchase that I have always wanted to try - doesn't the Sparkling Strawberry Rose Champagne/Peach Tranquility tea blend sound so yummy?

So when I came across Libre, I was so exited to learn more about the products that they have! Their products are designed to infuse tea while you take it on the go - to work, to school, on a road trip, to your yoga class, or even to visit your friends down the street!

I received the Original Glass n' Poly, which holds 260mL (9 oz.). It is the perfect size for me, since it fits nicely in my car cup holders and my lunch bag when I return home from work.

The first thing I noticed when I opened up the box was the pretty designs all around. I have an eye for pretty things, and I just couldn't help but notice how pretty the designs are, both on top of the lid....

Aside from all the prettiness, the design and engineering of the tea glass is what I love the most. At first, I noticed how the interior of the tea ifuser is made of glass, which is awesome since it won't absorb any smell, taste or colour as you use your glass over and over. The exterior of the tea glass is BPA free plastic, which is great since you won't burn your hands holding on to the glass.

And third, the glass actually goes higher than the plastic. This is great if you decide to drink your tea without the stainless steel filter.

The tea glass comes with a stainless steel filter surrounded by BPA free polypropylene.

There are two ways you can steep your tea - pour your leaves right in the glass or pour leaves on top of the filter for teas that need lesser time to steep. I ended up doing the pour-in-the-glass method! I purchased oolong orange tea, which is known to sharpen thinking skills and improve mental alertness. Yay!
Libre Tea Glass Review
I have been using the tea glass for a week now and love it. I love the fact that I can pour boiling water into my glass, grab it and run out the door in the mornings - no hot or boiling sensations felt! I also love the fact that the tea remains hot for a very long time, since my travel time to work is an hour. And the tea is still hot even when I arrive. 

However, the only one thing I would recommend is to have a thermometer somewhere to show you when the "ideal" temperature is reached so you can drink without burning your mouth. This way, you don't have to "test" it to see if it is cool enough to drink. Other than that, I am really satisfied with this product and will recommend to all my friends who love to drink tea!

Libre is a Canadian company that ships to both Canada and the US. They have other sizes of tea glasses available, so make sure to check them out! You can order your own libre tea glass through their site.
