Whether you're taking your tea with you on holidays or you're a person always on the go. Tea infuser bottles or insulated tea tumblers are a great way to brew tea without all the accessories.
Tea infuser bottles are an all-in one solution and are perfect for people on the move and who don’t want the fuss of brewing tea in a teapot.
Some of the most practical tea infuser bottles are the ones that have in-built tea infusers, so you can easily brew loose-leaf tea without having to transfer the steeped tea from the teapot into your teacup or mug.
The main features to look out for apart from styling, is how well the tumbler or travel mug can insulate the liquid contents inside the body.
Clever design and engineering have made it possible to keep your brews piping hot for up to 3 hours and cold drinks for up to 9 hours.
This comes down to the materials used such as some premium bottles using triple-walled insulation with vacuum seals, while some opt for double-walled thermal insulation.
You’ll also want to ensure that if your bottle is not made from glass or stainless steel, then check that the body is made from BPA free plastic.
We’ve done the hard work and picked out our favourite tea bottles that you can buy from our online store.
If you need to take your tea on the go...then the key features to look out for are:
The TWISTEA tea bottle infuser by Vitantonio is an ingenious must-have tea flask for people on the go. The heat-resistant, double-walled Tritan BPA free body has a twist mechanism that opens and closes a valve so that you can control the strength of the tea with a simple twist.
This tea infuser bottle has a modular design, meaning you can unscrew all of the components and easily wash each part individually, however, it is not dishwasher safe.
The infuser sits at the base of the bottle and as its own small tank which is sealed off from the main body by a valve system. The idea is to fill the infuser with 2 teaspoons of your favourite loose leaf tea and then screw the bottom lid back on.
Turn it around and then fill the main tank up to max marker with hot water. The double-wall body means you can hold the bottle without burning your hands. After filling the main tank, screw the main lid back on.
Finally, twist the bottom tank to open the valve. The water from the main tank will enter the bottom tank and the tea infusion begins. Shake the bottle around a bit to help with the infusion. Twist the valve shut to stop the tea from over steeping. Or open the valve to let the tea steep longer.
The HARIO Filter-in bottle is an elegantly designed bottle with a built-in filter. Unlike other infuser tea bottles in the list, the HARIO's main purpose is for cold brewing teas.
In Japan, the process of cold brewing tea is called - MIZUDASHI.
Green tea has different tastes and physiological functions depending on the temperature of water when it is brewed. Cold brewing Sencha for instance will result in less bitterness and astringency than hot brewed Sencha.
Designed in the shape of a wine bottle the HARIO sits pretty in the fridge or at the dinner table.
The standout feature of this model is the high-quality heatproof glass body. HARIO have been making heatproof glass since the company was established in 1921! So they certainly know a thing of two about heat-resistant glass.
Brewing tea is easy with the HARIO. Just add 3-4 teaspoons of your favourite loose leaf tea to the bottle. Fill the bottle up with filtered water and let it brew in the fridge for 3-6 hours.
When the tea is prepared at a low temperature slowly, the tannin and caffeine will hardly dissolve into the water, and theanine, an amino acid, can be accentuated.
The silicon spout has a filter which means you can pour the contents of the bottle directly over a glass of ice and the tea filter will prevent the loose leaves transferring into your glass.
The HARIO filter-in bottle is great for brewing cold brew tea but is also an excellent choice for flavouring water with fruit.
