Product Description

Primula Double Wall Mug with Tea Bag Buddy

The Primula Tea Bag Buddy is an innovative new item that makes brewing tea fun and easy. Paired with a beautiful 16-ounce glass mug, it is sure to become a tea drinker’s new best friend! The elegant double-wall mug is made of hand-crafted borosilicate glass, and is microwave safe. A large, ergonomic handle makes the mug comfortable and easy to grip, and the crystal clear double-walled borosilicate glass retains heat and freshness longer, while keeping the mug free of condensation.

Tea drinker? Meet your new best friend!

An innovative tea bag brewing accessory, the Primula Tea Bag Buddy is the solution to tea drinker’s most common issues. Made of 100% Silicone, the Tea Bag Buddy is stain-resistant and microwave and dishwasher safe. The Tea Bag Buddy can be used with your favorite variety of tea bag, and the special slot on the top of the Tea Bag Buddy means that securing the tea bag string has never been easier! Keep your tea hot by using the Tea Bag Buddy as a lid on your favorite mug or pitcher. The 100% silicone Tea Bag Buddy traps heat and steam, insulating the mug to keep your tea brewing at the optimal temperature for full flavor extraction. Use the Tea Bag Buddy to squeeze excess water from hot tea bags keeping your fingers cool and dry! Between brews, hold the used tea bag in the convenient caddy that is created when the Tea Bag Buddy is turned upside down. Instead of a saucer, set wet tea bags directly in the Tea Bag Buddy. There will be no mess, since any excess liquid is collected in the Tea Bag Buddy’s deep reservoir. After use, simply put the Tea Bag Buddy in the dishwasher for quick and easy cleanup!

What is Borosilicate Glass?

Borosilicate glass is made mainly of silica and boron oxide. Known for having low thermal expansion properties, this type of glass is less subject to thermal stress and shock due to temperature extremes. This means that the glass can go from hot to cold and vice versa without risk of cracking or breaking. Borosilicate glass is a widely used material in cookware and beverageware products due to its heat resistance, durability, and versatility.

This would make a great gift for a tea drinker.

The mug is double walled borosilicate glass which keeps the handle cool to the touch and keeps the condensation off the outside of the cup.

I like the Tea Bag Buddy - you can squeeze the teabag without burning your fingers.

The concept of this tea cup is great! I was excited to receive it and try it out, since I drink tea often in the winter but am typically distracted often and end up with cold tea. An insulated double-wall cup was just what I needed! When I opened it, I was surprised at how light the cup was. I assumed a double-wall tea cup would have more weight, yet this was lighter than my regular cups. Right away I was afraid of the breakable factor.
I brewed a cup of tea, let it steep the five minutes the bag called for (and the strength I like), then tried to use the silicone top to squeeze the bag. Well, that silicone was hot! It was nearly too hot to squeeze comfortably. Likewise, the insulating factor worked so well that I still needed to let my tea cool a smidge before drinking.
I finished my tea (it stayed nice and warm until I was done), and set the cup by the sink to wash later. I couldn't find on the box whether it was dishwasher safe, so I thought I would take the safe choice and handwash. Unfortunately, a small bump to the cup tipped it and it shattered in my sink. The glass is thin, which is why it is so lightweight. Sure, I could have been more careful, and glass breaks all the time. All in all, it's not a sturdy cup like I have seen some reviewers say.

Amazon.com description says this is dishwasher safe. Have to rely on amazon.com description because there is NOTHING in the box nor is there a sticker on the mug providing information on whether dishwasher and/or microwave safe. Before using put in dishwasher to clean. Came out cloudy. Contacted manufacturer. They said NOT dishwasher safe and said would send replacement. Decided to brew cup of tea in mug while waiting for replacement. The mug cracked on the inside while tea was steeping. It has been one month and no replacement.
What a piece of junk...a tea mug is supposed to be able to handle HOT water (I did not even use boiling water).
The only thing nice I can say is that it was a pretty mug if you don't use it.

After going to the Primula site and watching their instructional video, I found out how to use my Primula Double Wall Glass Mug with Tea Bag Buddy. I also learned how to pronounce Primula correctly. I had to go to their site because there are absolutely ZERO instructions with this item. Oh sure, I can make tea, but just exactly what does one do with the interesting silicone hat? According to Primula, you use it to hang the tea bag down in the water and then later to squeeze the last precious drops of tea whilst keeping one's delicate phalanges from getting mussed with said liquid. Well, at least I learned something today, right?

Personally, I liked the mug part the best, although the little tail on the handle should not have been left. My pinkie does not fit inside, it's a bit in the way and no doubt will be broken off by the various cretins roaming the kitchen at my abode. That said, the mug seems sturdy yet light, even though the double-walled glass is quite thin. The mug is microwaveable (the package does not state this, although their site does if one looks very hard) and my tea was boiling nicely with no explosions or mishaps. And the mug was only lukewarm to the touch.

I used the silicone hat thingy to squeeze my teabag for all it was worth. Yes, it's faintly warm to the touch, but nothing seriously burning at all. Afterwards, I let the teabag drop into the proper disposal unit and poured a bit of Grand Marnier into the tea (with orange spice tea an excellent combination) and a bit of soy milk and was in heaven, holding a faintly warm mug with very hot tea inside. This is truly a special mug. The "Buddy"?

Primula Double Wall Glass Mug with Tea Bag Buddy is so inventive, simple, AND elegant. Pour your hot water into the double wall glass mug, slip the tea bag into the bag buddy, adhere to the top and a fine cup of tea will begin to brew. Once you are at desired strength, remove the tea buddy with tea bag. If you are like me, enjoying tea weak, your tea bag will be ready for another dip and if not, without burning fingers, drop it into your garbage can to eliminate. The tea bag buddy saves your flesh. The double glass mug insures you won't be sipping warmish tea soon, sustaining heat for a much longer time than an average mug. Wonderful.

I am so impressed how elegant the double mug is.....classy, yet not pretentious. Gently crafted yet sturdy. The tea buddy is green which is my favorite color so voila...happy customer!

Great gift for yourself or others.

Bought 1 and back for two more to give for Xmas. This is the best tea mug ever. Keeps water hot and lets you remove tea bag and keep your fingers dry and cool. As well as some place to put the bags till you're ready to toss it out. Ands it's microwave safe.

This review is mostly just for the mug, because the Tea Bag Buddy does work as advertised.

The first thing I noticed about the mug when I unboxed it was the weight. It was very light, much lighter than a regular coffee mug. As I suspected, this did not bode well for the mug in terms of keeping tea warm for a long time. If the 'double-wall' construction helped at all, I was unable to tell.

You can buy the Tea Bag Buddy for around $5 separately, which would mean this mug costs about $15 - overpriced for what you get. I would not recommend buying the mug + TBB combo unless you're trying to buy a quick and easy gift. You'd be better off spending your $15 on a better quality mug that the TBB would work with. The TBB is 4.25" in diameter, so any mug smaller than that would work fine.

One quick note about the TBB. Mine did not really appear as bright green as you see in the product pictures. It actually was more of a puke/olive green. I added an image to this product listing to demonstrate. It's nothing that really annoys me but I was a little let down when I pulled it out of the box. Otherwise, I think it's a really smart little item.
