I am joining that rascally rebel who said to add teaware like this! I used my Joemo XL for the third time today, but the other two times I was on the run and was pouring in lukewarm already made tea that I didn’t expect to be taking with me. Today I knew I would be using it at work and filled it at 10:30 am with good hot stuff! About three hours later I started sipping my tea and burned my throat just a tad – it was still that hot. At 4 pm I finished my tea and it was still nice and warm, much better than the super cheap travel mug we had purchased at a discount store. In that thing, my tea is cold by an hour later. So the Joemo XL gets a thumbs up from me! It was the Steepster Select a while back from Teafrog – that is how I first heard about it. If you order one, you might as well go ahead and get some of the chocolate and cream deliciousness they sell as well….
