reviewed Libre Tea Travel Glass by Teaware
1235 tasting notes

This is a really pretty travel glass. Beautiful gold accents on the lid! My co-worker had one and I felt I needed to get one too. These clear travel glasses are great for showing off pretty teas with lots of colours and flower bits.

It came with an extra rubbery washer, which was nice. Lightweight too.
Keeps tea decently hot, but not as great as a stainless steel mug or a 100% double glass mug would. The mesh is pretty fine and kept even rooibos chips away.

Unfortunately my Libre leaks. If I get tea on the top past the strainer area it will leak. And once I tried the alternative steeping method (put tea in the lid and invert the glass) and it leaked and burnt my fingers in the process. My coworker went through 2 of these travel glasses and hasn’t had a problem with leaks, so maybe I got a dud.

I’m considering getting another one as there is a larger size. More tea capacity!!!!

I was raised on floral oolongs and green teas, mostly “beauty” teas. Early on as a kid, I can guzzle an entire pot of tea (or two) at a Chinese or Japanese restaurant.
These days I like adventurous and interesting tea blends. I’m fearless in trying new teas! I’m into oolong, pu’erh, white, green, black, guayusa, mate and herbals. I’m not into red rooibos but I keep buying it anyway.

The tea brand that got me started into loose leaf teas was DAVIDsTea. I used to live in Vancouver Canada and had access to their shop, however that is now limited since I moved to southern California.

However, the perks of living in the US is ultra cheap, fast shipping! Since then, my tea stash insanely expanded.

Other stuff I’m into that sneaks into my tea notes: Brazilian jiu-jitsu, metal music, drawing, painting, cooking, photography and nail polish.

BTW, my Steepster cupboard is not even close to accurate and I track my teas on a spreadsheet. Last update 573 Teas – August 2015.
