Taking hot tea to go is fine and dandy if you're using the bagged variety, but it's much harder to figure out what to do with loose leaf tea. Bodum’s Travel Press, originally designed for coffee, has found a new purpose with tea leaves.
We poured in a scoop of our favorite loose tea, filled the clear travel mug with hot water, waited a few minutes, twisted on the lid and pressed the mesh plunger to separate the leaves from our beverage. The mesh is fine enough to prevent the tea from over-steeping, and the black grip and easy-open spout make sipping while driving a breeze. The press also works just as well for bagged tea.
