Product Description

Tea and the British seem to be inseparable in our perception of English culture. When BODUM was asked by the British Tea Council to develop a new way of brewing tea we were rather proud. We set out with the goal to make an innovation in tea drinking and the simple BODUM tea-brewing system was born: boil water, place your preferred tea leaves in the stainless steel filter, pour in the hot water, let steep 3-4 min. or to your preferred taste and press down the plunger. The brewing process has stopped - no need to remove the filter - no mess - no burned fingers, only the true unforgettable and delicious taste of your preferred tea. The clear glass makes the infusion visible at all times, making it a very attractive table piece. Everything can go in the dishwasher, the jug (without the rod and lid) can go in the microwave.

Even though this is a 17-oz pot, it holds enough water for 2 large 16-oz mugs. I measured 25 oz when filled to just below the rim. I usually only fill it to 20 oz. I really like the metal strainer and lid. I get no plastic smell or taste at all. Also, I think metal is more durable. I had a plastic lid version of a similar pot before, and the plastic did not last. The ring around the rim and plunger bottom are rubber. It is better than plastic, again from a similar pot I had. The seal is tight. Tea smells and tastes wonderful!

This is part of my diet plan, to drink more tea and eat less food. It was recommended by Matt Might's blog at http://matt.might.net/articles/least-resistance-weight-loss/. He is a computer science professor at Utah, but also has a few non-nonsense tips on life. I have lost quite a bit of weight in the past month of following his advice. ;-P

I also bought from Amazon, Heavenly Tea Leaves - 4 best selling cans and Eatsmart Precision Scale (0.2 lb accuracy). These are both part of my diet plan.

We use this pot exclusively so I am ordering another. We agree on the teapot but not the tea, so to share tea time we must brew two pots. We have many fine pots and gadgets for tea, but this is the best and the only one we want to use.
Note also that the tea is in contact with only stainless steel or glass when brewing - that was a factor in choosing this pot the first time.

This is a great little tea maker and imparts the flavors you want in your brew perfectly. The strainer is placed in the pot just at the right spot to get all of that taste you want in a tea. The only reason I am not giving it five stars is the thin glass. Be careful - it appears to be very easy to break with just a bump on the sink. Having said that - it is the best tea maker I have used. I drink tea most days so it gets lots of use.

I've been through several tea pots over the years, and I keep coming back to Bodum. Bodum knows how to make a good strainer, unlike a lot of the other companies out there. The welds between all the pieces of the Bodum stainless steel strainer are very tight and do not allow for much debris to fall though into your pot. I've also noticed on some other manufacturer's strainers, that there are a lot of sharp edges, not so with Bodum. This strainer does not have holes near the bottom, or holes in the bottom, as it is used in a press, which must prevent steeping when the press is closed. So you are limited to brewing between half and a full pot in these tea pots, just something to keep in mind, if you are buying the larger version.

The glass is another point of discussion. I've had a couple other brands, and their glass has that rough feel to it near where the handle is attached, which I assume must be due to the way they are attaching the handle. Every Bodum I have had, has had smooth glass all over, which is nice, especially on the handle.

Yes, the press is made of plastic, honestly, I don't know how this could be done differently, perhaps the hard part of the press could be made out of metal, but a seal of some sort is needed in order to seal off the tea, which is the whole purpose of the press (if you are concerned with plastic, then I'd look for a regular tea pot, and just remove the strainer when your tea is finished brewing). I feel like the fit and finish of the press is outstanding. With the strainer being so tight, it is interesting that once you have past all the holes in the strainer with the plunger, the plunger becomes almost impossible to push any further.

Very nice little tea maker. I love to make herbal teas. I mix my own herbs. And I need a good filter so I can drink a pure tea without any peaces of leaves or herbs. This maker does it so well! And size it just enough for 2 cups what it perfect for me. Can not be happier!

very durable, very good design. i had mine over a decade and use it almost everyday . i love that it tolerates well in the dishwasher.
must have in my home and great gifts for others. i prefer this version of stainless steel lid as it is more durable.
i find the 34oz size much better than this 17 oz as this size is only good for about 1.5 cups and you might as well use the tea bags for it instead of brewing in the pod.
for tea stains, just scrub it with some baking soda and dish soap, it would be as good as new!

This thing really works. I often like 2 cups of tea when I drink tea and this is perfect for that. I was skeptical about the plunger stopping the steeping, but it does. The bottom portion of the strainer that does not have holes and when the plunger compresses all the leaves into that area the water circulation is stopped. My only minor complaint is that the strainer does not go quite far enough to the bottom of the pot to work well for just one cup of tea. My wife and I each have one of these.

I knew the pot would be fragile, but I didn't expect it to crack as soon as I took it out of the box! I don't think the packaging protected it enough during shipping -- a couple of cardboard boxes aren't enough to protect a thin glass pot. When I picked it up from its towel after rinsing it out with hot water, I heard a crack and saw a split in the glass where the bottom of the handle joins the pot. Hoping it would still be usable, I brewed my first pot of tea with it only to find water slowly dripping from the crack in the glass. For $40 plus $15 shipping (and the price has gone up now!), all I got was a broken pot.
