Product Description

Say goodbye to tea bags and enjoy your perfect cup of tea in style with the stainless steel YOYO tea strainer and PAVINA double wall glass. The PAVINA glass is made from mouth-blown, heat-resistant borosilicate glass which allows tea lovers to visually enjoy the rich colors their favorite teas offer. Freely swirling tea leaves will release their full potential, like in a Bodum tea pot but on a smaller scale. With a length of 11.7 cm (4.6 inch), it fits into all Bodum mugs. The lid is dual purpose. If put upside-down onto the strainer it keeps the water warm while the tea is brewing, if flipped after the brewing it can be used as a saucer for the tea infuser. The hole on top of the tea infuser allows for easy storage by just hanging it up. All parts are dishwasher safe.

Let me first say that I really did enjoy this product. The infuser is far easier to clean than the previous stainless steel infuser I had in the past. The glass feels quite sturdy, but this is where the problem arises. I had the set for a day before breaking it.

I was one of those people who read the reviews and said "There's no way I'll be clumsy enough to break this." Sure enough all it took was the handle of another mug tapping it slightly in the sink and the outer shell of the glass broke off.

Overall a very beautiful product, and I'll be using the infuser in other mugs for quite some time, but be very careful when washing the glass. Definitely not as strong as you'd expect for the price.

From what I can make out, this Bodum YoYo Double Wall Glass Personal Tea Set seems to be a combination of one of the 12-ounce glasses from the Bodum Pavina 12-Ounce Double-Wall Thermo Cooler/Beer Glass, Set of 2 and the Bodum New YoYo Stainless Steel Tea Infuser with Lid. If so, then that provides the option to buy replacements (or extra glasses) if needed. Also, it might be worthwhile to keep an eye on the prices of the individual items to see if it might be cheaper to make your own set. Anyway, this is a nice tea "set." Everything is well-made and is easily used and cleaned. I do have some quibbles with the set, though:

- From other reviews and from the official write-up, the glass is some kind of "lightweight, thermal, borosilicate glass; 2-layer construction resists heat and prevents condensation." But, to me, it feels a bit like plastic. It looks and acts very nice, though.
- The glass might be too big and rounded for people with smaller hands. I like it just fine. But, my wife says it's a bit hard to hold.
- The infuser's holes are big enough to let fine tea particles through. It's not that much of a problem though, since the glass' shape is such that the loose particles drop down into the rounded bottom and stay out of the way until you get to the very last drop.

So, minor as those are, I'll have to drop my rating for this set to "just" a Very Good 4 stars out of 5. Still recommended, though.

EDIT (01/17/11): Just a note that the glass only lasted 6 months. My wife slid it across the counter into the wall and broke it.

Bodum's 12-ounce double wall glass is just what you need to keep your tea, or any hot beverage, HOT, without burning your fingers. The borosilicate glass is ultra smooth, seamless, and a pleasure to drink from. The stainless steel tea infuser is a snap to clean - just rinse under running water and wipe dry. The lid doubles as a handy drip catcher. The handblown construction is simple, elegant and visually stimulating, making your tea time a delight for all the senses.

I really loved having this tea-for-one glass/infuser. It's really convenient, however the infuser itself has a major flaw. The holes are too big. When I brewed roobios, or peppermint tea a lot of the leaves would escape through the holes and I'd have to spoon them out after it was done brewing, which can be very tedious. If you are using this just for oolong, green, or black tea it's not a problem. (Though some green teas like genmaicha which can have lots of particles can be a problem too)

Bodum sells this same product but with a mesh infuser instead of a metal one, which I highly recommend over this model for the reasons mentioned above. Also you don't have to worry about the infuser rusting (mine started to rust a little towards the end, even though I cleaned and dried it fairly well).

The only other complaint I have was how long this particular item took to arrive in the mail.

Flaws aside, it's a good and convenient way to brew tea!

Do not listen to all the reviewers that whine about the Bodum double walled glassware, including the glass that comes with this setup, is defective and here's why. First, anyone with an ounce of common sense can tell this is a delicate piece of glass (hand-blown by the way, no two are the same). Secondly if any of these people had bothered to read the included lit. that comes with every piece of Bodum, which I doubt, they would have seen that the manufacturer tells you it is delicate. It says do not drop ice cubes in them, do not use metal spoons in them and try not to bump them against anything. If you do not think that something this delicate is for you then be smart and by all means do not buy these products, they will break. If you don't mind being a little extra careful, do yourself a favor, spend a few extra dollars on this stuff, you won't be sorry. I have been using Bodum products for years, and they are every bit as bright and crystal clear as the day I bought them. Sure I have broken some, but that was my own fault. But if you're one of those who cannot be bothered to read a few simple paragraphs (and this reminds me of all those who would not read the instructions on how to set the time on their VCR's, I made a fortune on doing it for those types who were too lazy to read) stay away!
And by the way, if you enjoy a real tea made from real tea leaves, this set is second to none in steeping an individual cup of tea. And the double walled Bodum glass that comes along with the package will keep your beverage hot twice as long as anything else out there. Just be careful with this and it will give you a lifetime of enjoyment!

Update:
Other reviewers are right about the holes in the strainer being on the large size.
