I don't drink enough tea. There, I said it. I love the stuff, but I get so impatient with it. Ya gotta let it steep, ya gotta deal with the tea leaves...eh. This, however, is something I need to get over because tea is good, it's good for me, and let's be honest—it doesn't take that much longer to prepare than my instant coffee. I learned this lesson last March when Libre Tea sent me a loose leaf tea glass to review. And then I learned that same lesson again this weekend when I used my new loose leaf tea mug.
Yep, a mug. It's the newest addition to the Libre Tea family, and the kind people behind it sent me one to review. Gotta say, I love the addition of the handle. The original was great, but the mug version is better. Hot beverages are better in mugs, are they not? It's unexplainable, really. But true, nonetheless. Also true, "the state of being free:"
Teavana checkout counter. Do you have Teavana in your area? It's a divine little loose leaf tea shop with types of teas for just about any taste buds. I bought Pineapple Kona Pop.
My mug loved it, too. If I'm being completely honest, the whole brewing process was quite easy. All you have to do is place the appropriate amount of loose leaf tea in the brewing lid...
That's the beauty of the Libre Tea mug. It's a tea infuser for on-the-go tea moments. Can't beat that! I encourage you to visit Libre Tea and check out their selection of loose leaf tea glasses. Consider them a Daily Dose recommendation for the tea lovin' fitness fanatic in your life!
Oh, and did I mention that Libre Tea is willing to give one mug to a lucky Daily Dose reader? Leave a comment after this post in which you describe your ideal tea moment.
