Product Description

Product Description

We set out with a goal to make an innovation in tea brewing and the patented Bodum tea press system was born. Brewing loose-leaf tea or tea bags has never been easier or cleaner. The Bodum Shin Cha Small Tea Press serves 2 or 3 people and is made from durable, heat-resistant borosilicate glass. Designed after the traditional teapot shape, the Shin Cha tea press combines timeless lines with modern functionality. To brew, simply set the durable stainless steel filter into the pot. Fill the strainer with the appropriate amount of your favorite loose-leaf tea. Pour hot water over the leaves, filling the pot, then set the plunger/lid in place in the up position. Allow the tea to brew to your liking and then press down on the plunger. The press compresses the tea leaves below the infusion holes in the strainer; completely stopping the brewing process. The Shin Cha puts an end to bitter, over brewed tea. Once you press, you can rest assured that your first cup and your third cup will taste exactly the same. There's no need to remove the filter and there's no mess. What you have left is the true unforgettable and delicious taste of your preferred tea. Some teas can even be brewed a second or third time, making the Shin Cha tea press the perfect choice. Just stir up the tea leaves and fill the pot back up with hot water, repeating the process. It is a clean and easy way to enjoy loose-leaf tea whether it is black, green, white, blooming or herbal tea. No Bodum teapot design recalls the simplicity of the traditional British teapot as does the Shin Cha. The handcrafted spout and Borosilicate glass sphere give it a classic look - uniting beauty and function

Amazon.com

A lovely way to brew tea to your exact preference, the Bodum Shin Cha tea press combines elegant shaping with crafty functionality. The spherical glass pot features a stainless-steel plunge infuser inside and a stainless-steel lid. Fill the infuser with loose leaf or tea bags, add hot water, wait the desired amount of steeping time, then plunge. The plunger pushes the tea below the infuser holes, so brewing stops on a dime and tea does not oversteep to the point of bitterness. To clean up, the unit goes safely in the dishwasher. With its glass spout, body, and handle, the Shin Cha showcases tea colors beautifully but does require somewhat careful handling. For total break-resistance, check out Bodum's Assam tea presses in cast iron. --Emily Bedard

Want to add a note, the pictures of this teapot is misleading. I just ordered my Shin Cha and got it last week. To my dismay, instead of the tea strainer being 100% stainless, they now add a rubber cushion around the top lip of the opening and continues down the strainer about an inch into the inside of the teapot.

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.

People have been complaining about how fragile the thing is, but I don't see it. It's glass, you drop anything made of glass and it will break... I don't see how you can expect glass to stand to impact and not shatter, if you're worried about that then get a metal teapot or something.

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.

So far, so good. The handle is reasonably ergonomic and seems sturdy. I do agree with some users that the glass seems pretty thin in some places, especially the spout, so I'm going to be extra careful when I wash this pot.

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 is a pot you must buy if you wish to enjoy your tea. The stainless filter is easy to clean and holds back even fine tea dust, keeping the tea clear and free of loose leaves. Only dislike is it is now made in China.

I have a ton of teapots. The Bodum Assam was my favorite, but without an extended spout it always dribbled on the table unless I poured it high up, then it splashed. When I married and wanted a bigger pot for tea to share. I bought another clear one so I can see the brewing, but the glass top had to be held when pouring and once I did not---so it fell and broke. This one is great because of the insert. First, it has tiny holes so small residue leaves don't go through so easy. Second, the plunger allows you to stop the process without removing the infuser, which makes Bodum brand superior. Third, unlike my old reliable Assam it has a rubber gasket around the top of the infuser so it says in place and the metal lid stays as well so you can pour one-handed. It is the perfect size for two people to have more than a cup without being too big. I finally found the perfect teapot.

Overall I like the size and the design but it is very fragile. You need to be very careful when u clean it, especially in the sprout area. Glass was very very very thin in that portion. How I know it? Yes, I broke it.

As someone who drinks several cups of tea a day, brewing a cup at a time seemed very inefficient. I experimented with brewing in a large thermos, which was nice in some regards (portable, piping hot), but cleaning it out didn't seem worthwhile when I was around the house. I had been skeptical of teapots because I worried about the tea becoming bitter, and teapots struck me was the domain of 80 year grandmas.
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.
