Product Description

The Thermal Columbia Tea Press is a simple solution for brewing loose leaf tea and keeping it warm without over steeping. Made of double wall stainless steel, the Columbia Tea Press will keep your tea hot for approximately 2 hours. Because the press completely stops the brewing process, you can enjoy your tea over time with the confidence that the extraction and flavor will remain the same as the moment you pressed and stopped the brewing. The Columbia eliminates "stewed" or bitter over-extracted tea. Just add loose leaf tea to the infuser, fill the pot with hot water, and let the tea steep to your liking. Once you are ready, press the plunger down and stop the brewing process. Now you are ready to enjoy your tea. For even better results, preheat the pot with hot water to maximize the insulation. The 4 Cup Columbia Tea Press yields approximately 4 - 8 ounce cups.

This is a marvelous piece of work, when it works.

If you don't mind plastic parts/ materials being used in your teapot then you might not even notice this issue.

Shortly after buying this tea pot water became trapped between the two layers of metal.

This is a marvelous piece of work, when it works. My first one is perfect. But three later ones, purchesed a year or less later, are all defective: the whole top, including tea strainer and strainer cover, is removeable. I mean the whole top that covers the entire top of the pot, not just the cover for the strainer. When it is correctly manufactured, the underside of the top of the pot has three ball-bearing-like protrusions that keep the top snug on the pot. And, when twisted clockwise, the top locks into place and cannot fall off. On the later pots, this top is loose, does not lock into place, and falls off when the pot is tilted, releasing hot water all over one's hand. There is obviously a manufactruing defect in the leter manufacturing runs of this pot!

Otherwise, my firtst, good one, is fabulous. The best.

I bought this teapot about 4-1/2 years ago. I go through alternating phases of preferring coffee and tea so I haven't used it daily that long but it is that old. The last few weeks we've been big into tea. It started with bagged stuff (MarketSpice Teabags, box of 24 (Market Spice Tea)) but we then ordered a bunch of loose leaf tea direct from marketspice. Since then we have been putting this tea pot to use at least once a day. I know that's an aside but that tea is extraordinary.

At 32 oz this teapot comfortably makes 4 mugs. The insulation is pretty good too. Don't expect Thermos-level performance (the walls are insulated but the entire pot is not sealed) but your tea will stay hot for a good while. Exactly how long depends on all kinds of variables of course but as a ballpark expect your tea won't go from "hot" to "warm" for somewhere in the 30-60 minute range (the 2 hour claim in the description is predictably exaggerated). Unless you like your tea piping hot it is about right for you and somebody else to have a couple of cups with a chat or game. If you want your tea to stay hot half the day you're probably better off using a Thermos or similar sealed container. You may be able to improve the time somewhat with a cover on the spout but I haven't tried this since the performance matches my habits well.

Even after 4 years the plunger seal still keeps the leaf from bittering the rest of the pot. There's room for maybe 3 teaspoons or so of loose tea in the sealed part of the tea reservoir, or enough for what most would consider medium strength to 4 mugs (not brewed individually, but in a teapot you need proportionately less tea as you brew more at a time).

I bought this teapot for its thermal design and because being made out of metal it would be easily cleaned and not breakable. I always seem to smash the lids and can think of no more uses for the multiple lidless teapots I own. Shortly after buying this tea pot water became trapped between the two layers of metal. I didn't notice initially since there such a lot of sloshing of water when it comes to making tea. I enquired at the internation Bodum site in English and got a reply in French that amounted essentially to 'tough luck' "tant pis" you should have taken it back to where you bought it. all well and good but that would have involved a 1600 km round trip, I have since enquired from the company how to remove the water or stale old tea from the two layers but they've ignored my enquiry. Since my only experience with this pot and the company has been disappointing I award it one star and wonder if they will print it. I could make a video demonstrating the quantity of trapped liquid between the metal layers. It is an expensive pot. Too bad the company appears indifferent to customer (dis) satisfaction. Smart companies listen to complaints about their products. They learn more from complainers than those who shrug their shoulders and buy a different brand.

I really had my hopes up for this teapot, as I've been searching for a good quality thermal pot that will keep tea warm for awhile. The press has a plastic plunger with a silicone gasket which (supposedly) seals it against the metal basket after you plunge it down, which in theory seals the tea leaves from the hot water, stopping the brewing process. Unfortunately I noticed a strong unpleasant aftertaste to the tea. It had a very plastic-y taste, which I could only guess was from the plastic plunger being submersed in scalding hot water/tea for a longtime. If you don't mind plastic parts/ materials being used in your teapot then you might not even notice this issue. However another complaint was that the tea cooled down in about the same time as a non-thermal teapot would take to cool. For the price, this should be a quality thermal pot that keeps tea hot for a longtime. Not impressed Bodum. Would love love love to see a decent quality stainless 40+ oz. thermal teapot WITHOUT any plastic parts!

It holds more than one would think looking at it. Keeps the tea warm and I can bring it to the table right away - instead of dealing with taking the tea leaves out after 3min I just press down.
