Glass Infuser Mug Recommendations

I had a Primula and the glass infuser insert broke a day after I got it (no kidding)

Now I have a glass mug and a Finum mesh filter which seems to be the best of both worlds.

I kind of had a feeling that there’s no such thing as an infuser that’s both sturdy and glass. I guess I’ll just use a Finum Brewing Basket in glass since it seems inevitable that a glass infuser will break.

I got one from DavidsTea. I’ve had it for over 6 months and it’s still in perfect condition. I like the little lid that you can set the basket on cause it collects the excess water too.

Teavana also has a couple where the steeper is glass too so you can actually see your tea leaves as they steep. I haven’t used them before though so I don’t know how they compare.

My personal favourite glassware product is the noble glass travel thermos. I just find it very beautiful and it’s an added bonus that you can take it with you (as long as you’re careful with it).

I just bought a Libre glass infuser tumbler and it is awesome!! Double walled glass, BPA free, there is a screw on mesh strainer that is separate from the screw on lid. It advertises the mesh strainer is fine enough for loose rooibos but I haven’t tried it for rooibos yet. It comes in different sizes, I got a 9 oz which I love, becuase it is not too big and not too small. Leak proof. 3 ways to brew the tea. Super happy with this purchase, even though I have more than enough tumblers, one for every day of the month…and more.

Has anyone tried the one from Jing Tea…

It looks very nice, but I’m trying to decide on whether I need one. I currently use the Luci Infuser from Tea Forte and put in a standard mug…

I think it works well with some of the smaller leaves, but isn’t so good for rolled teas or larger leaves. It does look rather lovely as well.


I’m madly in love with my Bodum Pavina. Madly. I just have the 8oz glass and use a separate infuser, but I know they sell a “tea for one” set with an infuser that comes along iwth it.

Based on this thread I picked up the Finium Brew Basket (Large) and David’s Tea Perfect Tea Mug for my hubby as a valentine’s gift. He uses primarily herbals so I wanted to be sure he had a very fine filter.

They both work wonderfully! I bought a Finium for myself as well. Thanks for the recommendation Steepsters!
