tbuddy.pngThis 20 oz. plastic bottle with a tea filter built in is marketed as a teapot and a teacup in one and it is exactly that. The bottle has screw-on caps on both ends, with the three-inch filter attached to the bottom cap. The directions say to put the tea into the filter from the bottom, then pour the tea into the top whenever it is convenient. There are watertight seals on both ends even though I still couldn't deny my paranoid tendencies and kept tightening them. The bottle is slimmer on the bottom than on the top, making it very comfortable to hold. It came with a neoprene sleeve to protect hands from hot drinks, and a detachable wrist strap as well. I appreciated having the neoprene sleeve, even though it sometimes got in the way when I was trying to open the bottom again. I usually like removing the tea leaves from my teapot to prevent over-acidity but the directions here claim that's not necessary; it wouldn't be convenient anyhow, without some spilling and mess. The filter is a fine mesh cylinder that was very easy to clean. I like having the convenience of tea on the go and appreciated the considerate additions of strap, sleeve, and watertight seals. This feels like it was made by a tea lover. The Tea Buddy is supposed to work for coffee too, but I haven't tried it in that capacity. I took it through two airports recently (empty, to appease the security guards) and after asking for hot water from coffee stands, this was a very pleasant way to enjoy my own tea while traveling.
