Recent Tasting Notes
Decent infuser & cup set that can be interchanged with others. Great alternative to a teapot when I’m the only one drinking tea, or if my partner and I have different tea cravings at the time. I often use just the infuser filter and cover with an everyday mug, as I’m afraid of shattering the glass Bodum cup especially when it has no handle. However most mugs don’t retain heat as well as the double-walled glass of the Bodum cup. Its also visually appealing to have around.
If there was one thing I would change, it would be the filter material. A metal mesh would be better as I found with dark teas, it stains the white mesh of the filter and doesn’t get as clean as before after washing.
I bought one of these at TJ Maxx a couple of months ago and I really like it. I use it to cold brew tea. It is borosilicate glass so it is very strong while being very light weight. We handle it a lot, and no chips, cracks or breaks so far. The lid has a built in strainer. I don’t even remove my leaves and it hasn’t made the tea bitter. The lid can snap apart for more thorough cleaning.
The reason I am writing about it today is because I saw that Marshall’s had gotten a ton of them in. I figured it was only a matter of time before they went on sale. They did! Retail price is $40, TJ Maxx was $19.99, and they have been marked down to $15. If they go any lower, I will gladly buy another one!
These look like the glasses I got from Teaopia before they closed, but without the filter. I have three sizes. A mini almost like shot glass size, an 8oz and a 12oz. I LOVE them. I think they are so nice to look at and they keep the outside of the glass nice and cool… or warm (if you are drinking something cold). I love these. Highly recommend.
I got two of these for my birthday this year, but so far find I only use this tea set occasionally. I use one glass to hold the stainless strainer and prepare subsequent brews and use the other for serving, so rotate between each. I use this tea set when I am making specialty teas and I’m only going to drink a 4-10 ounce tea followed by a 2nd,3rd,4th brew. The double-walled glass stays a manageable temperature to the touch, the lazer cut stainless steel filter is perfect for fine leaves as well as larger ones, the easy lift extension on the strainer is great for grabbing, and the lid functions as a cover and or saucer. A nicely designed tea set, well constructed and the fact that it has no plastic or rubber parts is a major plus. Very light and nice to handle as well.
I got this in the 12oz size because it was all they had at Crate & Barrel, aside from the 2.5oz espresso size, and that was a bit small for what I wanted it for.
This is perfect. The outer wall gets warm but not hot, which is great because I don’t like drinking out of vessels where the heat retention is so good that the outside can get cold while the inside is so hot. It’s a more sensory experience this way.
It feels very delicate, especially empty, like an egg that’s been blown out. I feel as though I’m holding a shell. It’s such a strange feeling. It’s no more strong when tea is in it then when tea is not; yet it feel much sturdier when full. It’s very light. But it’s shaped perfectly for a hand size, and it’s beautiful. The rim isn’t too wide or too thin. Fantastic mug.
I just bought this last night and tried it out today. I am completely satisfied with its performance and I love being able to see the color of the brewed tea. It’s a little more difficult to see what’s happening with the leaves, but I could see well enough to get the idea as they unfurled and sank.
I deliberately picked a white tea with what I hoped would be subtle accents to find out whether the filter contributed to the taste in any way. It did not.
This one’s going to live at work but I think I’ll probably get one or two more — one for home and one to stash at my sister’s place until she begins to understand what she’s been missing, at which time I MAY get her one, too.
I have an older model of this Bodum Tea for One, and I use it all the time to brew loose tea at work. The only complaint I have is the mesh gets stained easily and it’s not easy to clean it off. Doesn’t affect the function of the infuser, just cosmetically it doesn’t look nice. I recommend this simple system otherwise!
This is a beautiful and sensible Tea for One Set.
I love being able to see the color of the tea, and because of the double walled glass feature it really does keep your hands cool with hot tea.
The infuser is very fine, so I really do not see how any leaves would end up in your brew.
The cup is light and comfortable in the hand.
However the glass almost feels a little too light.
I have not had it long and maybe it is tougher than it feels, but I am constantly concerned about breaking it.
It just has a more delicate feel to it.
And I am a clumsy person.
But, it has not broke yet and I hope it will not anytime soon, because I enjoy using it immensely.
I got one of these in gray, and I love it. I use it all the time for loose-leaf tea when I’m just brewing for myself.
The clear walls allow me to see how the tea is brewing, but because they’re double walled I can still hold it even when it’s filled with steaming hot water. The tea filter is big enough to give the tea leaves a bit of room to expand, and does a great job filtering out pretty much everything solid. The lid also doubles as a holder for the filter, which means I don’t have to search around for a spare plate or something to rest it on or worry about dripping liquid everywhere. And it’s easy to clean. :)
This is the perfect solution for someone who doesn’t want to bother with tea pots. It holds 12 ounces of tea (or whatever other beverages you might put in it), and is all-in-all well-made.
The double-walled glass is incredibly nice to look at – it’s as though the tea is suspended in the air. Beautiful. It also doesn’t get too hot to hold, even if you pour boiling water into it. I personally dislike cup handles, so this is perfect for me. The double layer keeps your tea hot – or cold, if that’s your thing!
The plastic mesh filter it comes with is incredibly well-made. Quite easy to clean, too.
The plastic cover, too, is very nice. It keeps the tea hot. I had some recently brewed black tea in this thing, put the cover on it – an hour later, it was still nice and hot. As a plus, you can put the filter on top of it so that things don’t get messy.
It’s available in several colors. I myself got a white one.
