Hobo Mama Giveaway: Libre Tea Glass — loose-leaf tea on the go! {8.12; US/Can} CLOSED

This giveaway is now closed. View the winner here! Thank you all so much for entering!



I love loose-leaf tea, but it can be a lot harder to take with you than other drinks … until:

The Libre tea glass!

Libre Tea is offering my readers a giveaway of a Libre Glass 'n Poly tea glass — perfect for sipping your favorite loose-leaf tea on the go!

I live in Seattle, which is a coffee-loving city. I feel a little out of place without an ever-present cappuccino or latte to carry with me.

Fortunately, the tea culture has also grown stronger, and there are so many yummy, high-quality teas to sample and tea shops to visit, and loose-leaf varieties have become the astute drinker's tea of choice for many ecological, economical, and delectable reasons. I now have a full cupboard of delicious teas, but till now I had no way to take them with me like all those cool coffee drinkers.

That's why I was so excited to receive the Libre tea poly 'n glass to review. Now I can look like the cool kids, or even better, since my glass is so unique and aesthetically pleasing. And speaking of cool, this glass works perfectly for iced tea as well as hot, perfect for the summer months!




Libre Tea glass decorative top
The first thing you need to know about the Libre is that it's pretty. Oh, so pretty.

Libre Tea glass parts
These are all the parts. It's simple, which is good, and it all feels like very high quality. The box includes instructions for how to use the glass, which you can also read on Libre Tea's website and even watch a couple little videos they have. In the picture, you can see the two parts to the top: the filter at left and the cap at right. It's best to handwash the glass, but it's easy enough to do.

Libre Tea glass
This is the poly 'n glass version. There's also a glass 'n glass version, if you prefer all-natural materials. All glasses are made in China. Both versions are double-walled and thermal to keep hot tea hot and cold tea cold. The poly 'n glass version is a little lighter and less breakable (good if you're going to be slinging it around in a bag, or are just clumsy like me!). The glass 'n glass keeps hot tea hot for slightly longer. The difference in price is only a dollar. The poly 'n glass model has two different ways to brew, and I prefer the method that the glass 'n glass does not allow (see below). For me, the poly 'n glass is the better choice.

Libre Tea glass with loose leaf tea in filter
So, there are two ways to brew tea with the Libre poly 'n glass. This is the way I prefer, which is to fill the glass with boiling (or near-boiling) water up to the bottom of the filter, screw the filter onto the top of the glass, put your loose-leaf tea into the filter, and then flip it upside down to brew. When it's done brewing, you can flip it back over, remove the filter and cap as one, and drink from the glass once the tea has cooled to the right temperature for you.

The other way works for the glass 'n glass as well, which is to put the tea into the glass, then screw on the filter, pour boiling water in, then drink. I prefer the upside-down brewing (which is not possible with the glass 'n glass) if I don't have a separate teacup to pour it into after brewing; otherwise, the tea steeps too long for my taste before it's cool enough to drink. When trying it out that way and trying not to oversteep my tea, I ended up burning my tongue (oh, poor me!).

Note that you can also use tea bags with the Libre tea glass; there's no law against it! So whatever you have or is easy for you, feel free to pop your tea into the filter, screw on the lid, and then tuck the glass into your bag to bring with you. Then when you're at work, on a hike, at a coffeeshop, or over at a friend's house, all you need is to bum some hot water and your tea will be ready in minutes!

Libre Tea glass brewing upside down
This shows the tea brewing upside down. Please follow the directions, which I didn't do, to allow 2-3 minutes to pass after adding the boiling water for the water to cool slightly and steam to escape before screwing on the filter and cap and turning upside down. Otherwise, you will have some leaks of hot water, which could be a disaster if you put your glass near your laptop or day planner! Once I let the steam out and made sure the cap was absolutely secure, I had no problems with leaks, so just be obedient, unlike me.

Libre Tea glass minimal leftover tea specks
I took this picture to demonstrate that the filter, though it looks like the holes are wide, will contain most types of loose-leaf teas. The first tea I chose, a black tea, did not drift at all through the filter. The second tea I chose specifically because it had smaller flakes, and only a few specks were left in the glass at the end, not even enough to do a tea-leaf reading! It might depend on your specific tea preferences, but the filter works effectively for me. I hear, though, that they're considering a finer mesh for the future for customers who prefer very small-leafed tea.

Libre Tea glass ready to drink
Once your tea is steeped, drink up! 

If you want your tea chilled, simply prepare it in advance, adding sweeteners like honey when it's still hot enough to mix in as desired, and then store the glass in the fridge or add ice cubes for an iced version. Ah! Sweet summery goodness, and it will stay cold for quite awhile. 

I found it was also possible to rebrew the leaves that were left in the filter, so you can save on tea in that way. In fact, I liked one of my brews better the second time around! I poured the hot water directly through the filled filter on that occasion, and it brewed it almost instantaneously and was really rich without being overdone.

You can also use the Libre tea glass for any beverage that you think would benefit from being shown off in an elegant, see-through glass, so if you run out of tea while you're out, you could always refill the glass with water or some other beverage. The poly 'n glass holds about 9 ounces of liquid, which is the same size as one of our teacups at home. I did a quick search, and it seems like traditional teacups are about 6 ounces, whereas oversized mugs can be much bigger. At any rate, 9 ounces felt like a good tea amount for me!

Here is a completely pointless video to demonstrate what happens when you let your 3-year-old help you do product reviews:



But, as you can see, he loves the tea glass, too!

By the way, after watching Wendy of Libre Tea's videos, I realize Mikko and I are (mis)pronouncing Libre more the Spanish way, but she's doing more of a French version — my high-school Spanish kicked in by accident, but now you'll know better.


So now tea lovers can be as hip as coffee lovers — if not more so! Enjoy your tea on the go with the Libre tea glass.


BUY IT!

You can purchase the Libre tea glass at LibreTea.com at $24 for a glass 'n poly model (the one I reviewed) or $25 for a glass 'n glass model (at left).

Libre Tea ships glasses readily to the U.S. and Canada from warehouses located in each country, and you can contact by email for other international shipping quotes. If you are in British Columbia, Alberta, or Ontario, Canada, you can also find the Libre at several retail locations. There is a distributing company within the U.S. and Canada as well, so you could check likely retail locations near you (natural food stores, tea shops) to see if it's stocked there yet, and recommend it if not.

I would use this at work. I've been suspicious of teabags ever since I read that the chemicals they use to make the paper strong enough to survive the brewing process probably have all kinds of carcinogens and stuff in them. This would solve that problem! Thank you!

What a clever and gorgeous way to brew tea! I drink tea like it's going out of business. This would be fantastic to keep it nice and hot!

You should try the Chamomile Citrus @ Mighty Tea. Very mellow with a hint of citrus flavors.

Hobo Mama, this is a tea drinkers dream! I simply can't get enough tea, and I have two tea plants growing in my yard. I drink tea both cold and hot. I would use the Libre Tea Glass pretty much on a daily basis. I would use it at home and on the go. This would be perfect to use with my loose black tea, green tea and white tea varieties. Sweet tea is my favorite Southern beverage.

My favorite loose leaf tea is one I grew myself. I currently have chamomille, peppermint, and spearmint.

bettycd said...

I would use this while working. Coffee is wonderful for morning commute and then I'd like either hot or iced tea during the day. We have access to hot water but making a pot of tea is too much. This would be so much better than using tea bags.

bettycd said...

I was just gifted a tin of Harney & Sons African Autumn - caffeine free red bush w/ cranberry and orange and highly recommend giving it a try.

bettycd said...

The Libre site had a history of tea link. Tea origination stories include a tea leaf falling in a Chinese emperor's hot water that he was drinking and also that leaves were boiled testing for medicinal properties. Both origin stories have been long told in China.

Not really a recommendation, more a preference... I love the Rooibos tea you get from South Africa.

whoa, this is perfect for me. i love getting iced tea at the coffee shop by my house and they make it half peppermint/ half jasmine from loose leaf tea. it is really good! this container looks great for making my own tea at home.

Q. will the Libre glass’n poly break?

This Libre is much more durable than the glass’n glass although I have heard of a few that have broken. Over all customers have advised it is more durable than they expect and personally I have dropped it on a kitchen floor from counter height, on the road out of my car and on a cement garage floor without breakage.

I would use this to brew loose-leaf tea because I have not had much luck with infusers. I've recently become interested in hot tea and trying all different varieties, so I would love to win this!

I haven't tried many loose-leaf teas, but my favorite so far is french vanilla

I learned from the Libre website that the caffeine in tea is released at half the rate that it's released in coffee.

I have a long drive every morning. I would use the Libra Tea glass to carry with fresh tea with me.

time consuming (and awesome) that to actually brew some tea and sit down with a mug seems like mission impossible.

Thanks!

I wish I drank more tea, but motherhood is so exhausting

I can't decide whether I'd give it to my mom or use it myself to easily make the various loose teas floating around my kitchen.

I love jasmine flavored green tea - the one I have is imported from China by Fujian.

I never knew that they brewed tea with salt and ginger when it was first discovered.

Yeah! What a great mug! I love tea and would love to have a good on-the-go cup for loose leaf tea. I'd slap in into the side pocket of my backpack and we'd be off!

My favorite (morning) loose leaf tea is Irish Breakfast from Adagio.com
