This is my daily go-to at work for brewing tea to drink straight (no sugar or cream).

Fits well in my hand
Doesn’t leak unless you turn it all the way over
I can brew one batch of leaves in the cup, and still have more in the lower compartment for being on the go on a long day
Fine mesh strainer doesn’t let anything through
Insulates very well – I don’t burn my hand, and it stays fairly warm for a decent period

Can’t remove leaves from bottle after brewing
Small bottom interior means I can’t fit my hand down in for thorough cleaning
If you take it all the way apart for washing, it’s hard to get it dry, and you end up with moisture/steam between the walls

I’ve got a green one with leaves printed on it – there’s a blue one as well. I got mine on Amazon.

When I was a very young child, I swallowed an ice cube whole. It got stuck in my throat, and my mother had me drink hot tea to melt it away. That started a love affair with tea that has never abated.

I dabbled with Celestial Seasonings and other grocery store teabags for awhile, in my young and foolish days. But a few years ago, I received a tea of the month subscription from Adagio, and I found that there was a whole other world of tea out there that I had never experienced.

I love drinking tea, and I love the personal ceremony of making a glass or pot of tea for myself. It’s like a meditation.
