Libre Original Glass'n Poly Tea Glass ~ Review

Libre sent me an Original Glass'n Poly Tea Glass. I will be honest with you, at first, I had no idea what a tea glass was. It wasn't until I received it & started reading up on it that I found out. It is BPA free, has a glass interior & a durable Poly Tritan exterior. You use it for loose leaf tea. 

I have to take a moment and comment on how absolutely beautiful the cap is. It has a copper/gold colored image in it that is spectacular to look at. It also has a design engraved around the cap which is very pretty as well. All in all, the designs make it look very elegant.

The Libre glass'n poly model can be used 2 ways:

1. You can add the loose leaf tea in the bottom of the glass & add your boiling water. Then when it has steeped enough (about 3-4 minutes) you unscrew the filter cap & drink from there. The filter will strain the tea as you drink so that you do not get leaves in your mouth.

2.  You can add the loose leaf on top of the filter, add the boiling water & then slowly to ensure you have a good seal, turn your glass upside down for 3-4 minutes for a time restrained steep. Then you turn it right side up & remove both caps at once and can drink your tea.

One of the most impressive things I have found about the Tea Glass, is that even with the boiling hot water in the glass, the outside of it merely stayed warm (a definite perk for cold winter days like today, you can use it as a hand warmer) The caps, while warmer than the glass, were just slightly warmer & I was still able to touch it easily. The tea stays hot for quite sometime as well!

I didn't really believe that it was "leak resistant" I mean, how many thermos's have you bought for your kids & next thing you know, their bags are soaked? The Libre Tea Glass really IS leak resistant though! I turned it upside down and once I saw it didn't leak I gave it a few shakes. Not one drop! 

Now you should remember that when you are steeping your tea, either way listed above, that sometimes the steam can build up. So when you are ready to drink, slowly twist whichever cap just a little. If there is no steam escaping, go ahead & open it the rest of the way.

Think how often you could use this. At work, school functions, shopping. This way you can have your favorite tea whenever you want & not have to worry about if certain places carry it or settle for a different brand.
