I first heard of this type of cup from a YouTuber I follow - OrganizedlikeJen is her name. That woman is truly my goddess. She makes me a better housewife seriously. No sarcasm! She is organized, has the same impeccable taste as I do and we do have tons in common. I know, it's eerie...So anyways, she had a Teavana version of this cup and I needed to get my grubby hands on one. I have been drinking tea since I was a child. I crave tea every so often so why not get geared up for the upcoming winter season with a fabulous brewing cup ya know? Now I know what you're thinking.."What is so damn magical about this stupid cup?" Fear not! I will tell you what the most fabulous thing is about my new cup - it dispenses the tea out from the bottom! It's great for loose teas because I don't know about you but spitting out gnarly bitter tea leaves out of my mouth makes the experience less than stellar. So this cup will automatically dispense the brewed tea and keep the leaves on the other side of the fence know what I mean? Now I can enjoy a leafless tea woohoo!!
Like I said, Teavana has their own branded version of this cup and I think every other tea company so don't despair if you can't find this cup. I do think it's a great investment if you like teas like me and it truly wasn't that expensive all things considered. You can buy it from their site or even Amazon. Just check for the shipping if you're outside of the US as I am. Happy tea time!!
