Are you living an increasingly busy life? Are you finding it harder to make time for a cup of relaxing and delicious tea? If so, we want to help you put an end to that.
Well, since our lives are squeezed to the fullest, having tea on the go is essential and having a steeping tumbler can help you have your “ahhh” moment even on your busiest days.
How to Use a Steeping Tumbler
Steeping tumblers are generally an insulated glass or metal container that comes with a built-in place for the loose leaf or bagged tea. Simply fill the tea container with your choice of tea, add boiling water, and steep for the ideal time. Then, you can remove the filter basket OR pour the tea from the tumbler into a separate cup so you can reuse the tea tumbler again by refilling it with hot water and repeating the steeping process.
Which option you choose depends on where you go. If you are going into a public place with sitting areas and hot-water dispensers, bring another cup. But if your primary concern is to prevent the tea from spilling — like at a busy and crowded shopping mall — then remove the tea filter and just keep the tea in your spill-proof tumbler.
As for tea choices, feel free to use any you like! Just make sure not to let them steep for too long or they might turn bitter and lose their flavor notes.
Often, people recommend bringing a fork or some type of stick to remove the filter since the water can get pretty hot (and you don’t want to burn your fingers). Instead, if you’re using loose leaf teas, you can put them in our Tea Filter Bags. This still allows the leaves to move around and release their flavor while preventing any of them from escaping.
Types of Tumblers
There are two main types of tea tumblers: Glass or metal. Which one is for you?
It really depends on your lifestyle. Art of Tea has one of each, designed to make drinking tea on-the-go an awesome, delicious, and refreshing experience wherever your day may take you.
The glass tea tumbler, for example, has a silicon grip sleeve to make sure you don’t burn your hands or drop the tumbler. It’s also double-walled to keep the heat inside for hours and the lid is silicon with a little slit that prevents unwanted spilling.
The stainless steel tumbler is fantastic as well. It’s a much sturdier version than the glass tumbler — you could say it’s built for a more “rough and tumble” lifestyle. But, don’t let its resilient shell fool you; it comes with a stylish design on the outside and has a slim aesthetically pleasing build. This tumbler also comes with a removable mesh filter under the twist off lid, which is perfect for both loose and bagged teas.
If you’ve been struggling to find spare time to enjoy a hot or cold tea between work, the gym, soccer games, school plays, or whatever life throws your way, then add these tea tumblers to your shopping list. It’ll enable you to drink your favorite tea no matter where you are or how busy your life gets.
