Product Description

Product Packaging: Frustration-Free Packaging

This glass tea mug turns the act of brewing tea into an artistic presentation. Loose tea leaves are placed into the glass infuser, hot water is added and when the water reaches the desired color or strength, the infuser is lifted out along with all the loose leaves. The lid is turned upside down on the table to act like a coaster. The tea infuser is placed on the coaster to no tea drips onto your table. With its wide loop handle, the mug can be picked up and carried without fingers touching the hot glass. Tea flowers look beautiful in the mug, too and work best without the infuser. Made of lightweight yet laboratory-strength borosilicate glass that won't stain, the mug may be used on the stovetop or in the microwave and both the mug and infuser are dishwasher-safe. For the tea drinker, Primula also sells a glass teapot and packets of tea flowers, which are AA-grade green tea leaves and actual dried flowers that are hand-sewn into tight balls by artisans in China. After a tea flower ball is place in hot water, it will slowly sink to the bottom and unfurl into full "bloom." Some even have two different kinds of flowers that unfurl into a colorful spectacle and add flavor to the tea.

...it is a 12 ounce 3-piece set: Lid, infuser, cup.

Out of the box, my first impression was looks and feels fragile, but so do most laboratory grade glass. I like the fact that it is made of this borosilicate glass. Resistant to thermal shock, hard to stain, and microwave friendly. The glass is thin, so more fragile than most glassware I have at home. Handle with care, and keep away from children. The glass can handle the high pressure spray of a dishwasher, but might not survive clashing against neighboring dishes if unsecured to a tray.

The infuser has 12 tiny slits at the bottom that act as filters when the infuser is lifted above the cup. Takes about 3 seconds. Safety tip, lift/lower the infuser slowly. Overflow may happen because not enough time is given for water to go through the slits when lifted/lowered in a hurry. After removing the infuser from the cup, it was easy to clean out the Jasmine tea leaves I used. I found a tiny piece stuck in one of the slits but a simple faucet rinse usually cleans it out. If not, I use the bristles of my toothbrush and press through the slits to clear out any debris.

To sum it up, I could not be happier with this product. My only downside is it makes me want all my glassware to be borosilicate glass.

Primula 12-Ounce Personal Tea Maker Set, Clear

I adore this Tea-Maker! I'm not one to write reviews unless I feel strongly on way or the other, and this is definitely one of those items that I just had to gush about. I was on the hunt for an all-glass tea press (plastic+food/drink turns me off, and I'm very sensitive to the taste of metal), and this fits the bill.

I love the borosilicate glass (I throw everything in the dishwasher, and this is tough enough!)but despite its resilience, it feels light and thin, like crystal. And the strainer works wonderfully -- no stray tea leaves in my cup!

For a single serving tea maker for all your loose leaf teas, this is the best I've found.

Although used primarily for the "flower" blossom tea, this clear glass infuser has led to many comments among my tea drinking friends. I have consequently purchased several for them. I have seen and purchased a slightly cheaper "no name" tea maker of thinner glass at an import house. It broke in the dishwasher...the Primula cups are years old and still beautiful. The lid serves as a great tray to hold the infuser while using the cup to drink...no need to immediately return to the kitchen.

Received my 2 sets of the 3-piece Primula tea maker set today - ordered it with Prime yesterday so the speedy shipping was fantastic! Both sets arrived without any breakage or cracks and I now have a set for home and another set for office.

I used my office set this morning with loose-leaf green mango peach tea by Tea Forte and was a little surprised at how much "stuff" remained in the bottom of the cup after I took the diffuser out. But I will say that the stuff that is in the bottom of my cup pretty much stayed there and is of a "silty" texture so if I end up drinking it, that's not an issue.

Overall I love the concept - easy to use and practical.

While the cup/diffuser can withstand boiling water, I agree with the other reviews in that I would not let a child use the set and I will be careful putting it in the dishwasher for fear of breaking against another glass/ceramic item. Otherwise, with care, this tea-maker set will probably last for a while.

I am most happy with this product and would definitely recommend it!

This is no frills, functional all glass tea maker set. Handle is comfortable to hold and does not get hot. All pieces fit well and I like that the lid functions as a coaster for the infuser. Infuser's design appears to be best suited for whole leaf teas.

Now for negatives: I don't care too much that lid get's bit too hot to handle but I cannot quite get used to how infuser looks. Glass around the slits have chipped and I'm a bit concerned if some more can chip into tea (it looks as if the cutting tool was not sharp or spun too slowly to make the incisions).

Pretty, but disappointed. It works well enough for flowers, but other loose leaf teas fall right through between the slots. I don't mind a bit of sediment, but way too much with this infused. I understand the reason for the big handle, but I found it uncomfortable. I don't buy tea flowers, so this will be gifted to a friend who does (with a warning).

so beautifully designed, doesn't look like it breaks too easily, hopefully! and more than anything practical. made my tea making so easy during the day, when it's only me at home, and I don't need to waste a lot of tea on a tea pot to have one decent cup. also, I can add and mix different types of tea to make the perfect cup. why didn't I get one sooner. my husband also fell in love with it, and is stealing it from it once in a while. I'm ordering another one for his office and one for him to use at home, and leave mine alone!

I love the cup and the top for it, but the infuser can be a royal pain to clean. The slits in the glass are too small to clean easily. Also I've had two infusers now crack on me under regular use (while trying to clean them).
