Travel Tea Tumbler

tea tumblerTea Bud readers know that I’m not a fan of Teavana tea or products but I was gifted their new Contour Tea Tumbler and have to admit I’m loving it. Here’s why: 1) Large 16 oz container brews 2 cups of tea; 2) removable stainless mesh brew basket is fine enough to keep out even the smallest tea dust (it also fits nicely in a mini-teapot); 3) slender design fits into standard cup holder; 4) cap turns over to hold the mesh strainer after brewing; 5) after 2 hours in 35 degrees the tea was STILL hot; 6) push button lid works great with no leakage; and 7) cool green color! Apparently, not everyone has had good luck with the product. Adding milk, honey, sugar, etc. can alter flavor results and will require extra cleaning which is NOT easy with this model. Lots of complaints registered about this. I’m a purist so have had no issue with this. Note: Directions are in teeny tiny print but DO read them. No dishwasher or microwave. If you have one, I’d love to know what you’ve experienced. Check out colors and pricing here.
