Sun's Tea (Tm) 18oz Ultra Clear Spill-proof Strong Double-wall 3-Piece Borrosilicate Glass Tea Tumbler with Strainer
Top customer reviews
1.) You want to avoid plastic, BPA, and it's BPC/BPP..etc cousins that are incredibly toxic when heated.
2.) You like to watch your tea steep and enjoy the change in color, or enjoy seeing the leaves uncurl and float around.
3.) You're not clumsy and can handle carrying a piece of glass around everywhere. It's not for the faint of heart, but as I always say -- High Risk, High Reward.
4.) You can't stand tumblers and travel mugs that aren't leak-proof and will spill when turned sideways or upside down.
In addition to tea, this works great as a water bottle as well, in fact I actually use it for both throughout the day switching back and forth as needed. It's fairly resistant to heat shock, just don't do anything stupid like taking it when it's ice cold and adding boiling hot water since that most likely will shatter it. In regards to heat retention, this will keep your tea hot for about 30min, and warm for about an hour. If it takes you longer than an hour to drink a cup of tea I'm not sure what's wrong with you, but regardless I'd suggest looking into an insulated metal on glass thermos or something similar that's actually designed to keep a liquid piping hot for hours on end.
That said, it's foolish to blame the product when really you're just complaining about the laws of physics here, glass on glass can only do so much, but in comparison this will keep your tea/coffee hotter for significantly longer than an open ceramic mug or an entirely stainless steel travel mug. I really do love that this tumbler is spill-proof so long as you don't lose the gasket, so you never have to worry about carrying it or tossing it around for fun like I do (It's more fun this way people, put a little excitement into your life for once).
Lastly, I'll mention that the strainer works well enough for loose-leaf tea. Of course it's not going to work well for Rooibos or Mate, but again this comes back to the laws of physics. You'd need either a serious lab grade stainless steel filtration matrix to ensure a particle-free drink, which simply doesn't exist in a consumer product, or you can sacrifice with a ball-type tea strainer with the tiny minimal holes which quite frankly will never let enough liquid to exchange back into the tumbler/mug and will result in weaker-tasting tea every time (No bueno). For those two types of teas, you pretty much have to use tea sacs or bags which logically makes perfect sense. I also bought the optional basket strainer separately, which I recommend since it lets you remove the tea leaves easily once you've hit your desired steeping time. It's awesome that both of these baskets seal securely inside this mug-- a lot of competing glass tumblers don't seal nearly as well leaving you with stray leaves mucking about in your tasty tea.
UPDATE July 30, 2015: Although my replacement tumbler was in storage and unused longer than the standard guarantee period, when I finally used it and it cracked the company did send me another replacement. I have increased my rating because this company does seem to make an effort to correct problems in a timely way even if there are some quality issues. Another observation is that from what I have seen you have to pay a decent amount more money to get a tumbler with tea strainer of much better quality.
Received replacement mug and it does indeed come with a gasket. The customer service is amazing also.
I'm not sure if there is supposed to be a gasket inside the lid, but it leaks. I can't even tilt the bottle back to drink it because it comes out through the lid before it even reaches the spout. If there is supposed to be a gasket and the gasket solves that issue, I would gladly give it 5 stars because it is otherwise a great glass bottle. It keeps my tea warm and the strainer stays in place. I also like that it holds a decent amount and the glass doesn't make my drink taste funny like plastic and metal do. But if there isn't a gasket then the lid is pretty useless. I'm giving it 2 stars instead of 1 because it is still useable without a lid, albeit you're drinking from glass jar with a threaded opening, which is kind of awkward.
Put a layer of saran wrap on top before you screw the lid down or the alcohol will start to craze the plastic.
