I've not been much of a tea drinker in the past. It's not that I don't like tea per se, it has just never been convenient for me to drink and honestly, I forget it's even an option!
I know tea has some amazing healing properties which is why I've always wanted to become a tea drinker and believe me, I've tried. It just never really stuck.
Until I ran into the Libre and my whole tea-drinking world changed for the better!
Before we get into the awesome specks of this tea chalice, here is a little bit behind the company itself:
"Our company started in 1999 and began enjoying tea moments with Libre in 2008. We are proud to be a 100% wholly owned Canadian company, and we are committed to sustainable people and planet practices, excellent customer service and engaging tea moments for all to enjoy and relax with.
Tea, for me, is symbolic of an ancient ritual celebrating the secular as sacred. It is a space to take a breath, reconnect with oneself and the world. It is a time to stop — to enjoy life, people and the planet and remember the joys that life has to offer.
Inspiring tea moments - anytime, anywhere - is my mission."
There are a few different tea glasses you can choose from, but for this review I was sent the Libre glass'n poly Original, which holds about 9 oz.
Each Libre product has a glass interior and a polycarbonate exterior, making them perfect for keeping hot liquids hot and cold liquids cold longer. You're also able to take these puppies wherever you go without any worry of spillage or burn danger!
Worried about BPH in your plastic? No need with this glass; the stainless steel tea filter is surrounded by BPH free plastic so you can enjoy your tea moment without feeling guilty.
Aside from all these specs, the glass is sleek and very lovely, especially the top with gold tone decorative characters and a unique looking lid which is what first caught my eye when I took my glass out.
You can enjoy your tea one of two ways, viewable in the above graphic or below in their how-to video which can also be found on their website with several other useful tid bits of information::
Personally, in my opinion, this is the best product I've come across yet and I'm not just saying that! Once I got it, I went a little tea crazy and I actually enjoyed drinking the tea rather then forgetting it was there. And it's so EASY!
My only problem is finding more tea to enjoy ^.^
