Libre Tea Glass Review #HolidayGiftGuide

2013 Holiday Gift Guide

I am a tea lover. Herbal tea, rooibos, steaming jasmine tea, chai tea, sweet black tea… My current favourite? Earl Grey tea with half a shot of Irish cream!

I remember sitting on my father’s lap when I was four or five, drinking hot milky tea from a bone china teacup. I felt so grown up! Nowadays I’m constantly busy and on the go, and bone china is a little too delicate with two young kids. I need a tea receptacle that will fit my lifestyle. And now I’ve discovered a great present for the on-the-go tea-lover in your life: Libre tea glasses!

Canadian company Libre makes dual-walled tea glasses with a glass interior and a durable polycarbonate exterior that keeps tea hot yet remains cool to the touch. All the parts are BPA free, and the stainless steel filter and lid screw off for easy filling and cleaning.

A Libre tea glass is the perfect tea gift for your tea lovin’ friends and family – they're sure to appreciate a relaxing tea moment anywhere, anytime.

I really like the look of these tea glasses. The glass and poly cylinder has a classic and minimalist look I love, and the lid has a lux gold filigree design that keeps the glass from being too plain. I don’t miss having a handle because my glass never gets too warm for comfort, though Libre does offer a mug version with a handle for those who prefer it. The classic 9 ounce size tea glass that I received for review fits perfectly in my car’s cup holder and in my purse. Yeah, you heard read me correctly – I can carry my tea glass in my purse! No leaks!

How Does the Libre Tea Glass Work?

The two-part lid allows you to make tea two different ways. Put your loose leaf tea in the glass, add hot water, and allow the tea to steep. Then screw the stainless steel filter on to keep the leaves out of your mouth when you drink.

Or, for a tea with limited steeping time, add hot water to the glass, screw the filter on and put the tea on top of the filter. Give it a few minutes for the steam to dissipate, then screw the lid on and turn the glass upside down to steep. When the tea is ready, flip it back over and unscrew both the filter and the lid to drink.
