I ordered a second one just to verify this, and the 2nd teapot came with the same tea strainer. I called Bodum, and they said that this is the new design to prevent the strainer from breaking the teapot.
Well, although I'm a purist when it comes to NOT having plastic/rubber elements in my food/drinks, I decided to still keep this teapot. I just don't fill the water high enough for it to touch the rubber, and I don't think anyone would want to fill it that high anyways.
Glass teapots make brewing my lose tea to the perfect stregnth that much easier, so I can get it steeped to the perfect time by being able to look at the color of the tea, and not just going by the time...especially on 2nd brews. When the tea reaches just the right stregnth, I push down on the stopper, and it stops steeping. And when I'm ready for another pot the next day, I just reuse the same tea in the strainer from the day before, and its all ready to go, just pour hot water in it again.
This teapot also has an excellent pour...no drips anywhere! I really like that, and it holds enough water for at least 4 large cups of tea.
So I can overlook the rubber, but it does bother me a bit that its there, but i guess I'd rather have the cushion, than a broken teapot.
I've had no problems using, brewing, and cleaning this thing. It looks great, I can see my tea's color change to stop at the perfect brew point. You will get some residue that's hard to clean along the spout thing, so use a wire brush to get that area.
So in conclusion, buy this if you want a clear tea pot that you can see your tea color as it steeps and if you're the kind of careful person that understands the basics of glassware.
The tea infuser basket does not reach all the way down to the bottom of the pot. (Unlike the photo on Amazon...) It looks like there's at least 1/2 inch of space between the basket and the pot's bottom, maybe even 3/4 inch. There aren't any holes on the infuser basket for more than another inch high from the bottom of the basket, so I don't think this will be good for making less than 3 cups of tea at a time. It looks like it will be good for roughly 4 servings.
Another note: The pot that I received was probably a previous Amazon RETURN. The teapot was really loosely wrapped in bubble wrap inside its box. Honestly it did not look securely wrapped enough, so I was immediately worried that it could be damaged -- but I don't see any damage, so that's okay.
This teapot solves at least my first problem. The last cup of tea tastes like the first. It doesn't preserve the temperature as well as a thermos, but it does okay and is easy enough to clean. I may have to walk further down the grandma road and get a tea cozy though.
If there are any fine particles in your tea, they may make it past the filter. And plunge slowly. I haven't spilled but it's been a little exciting a couple of times when I jammed it down.
