I received this product for free to facilitate my review, in exchange for my honest opinion. For more information regarding product review, please refer to my media kit.
I have to say right at the start, this is a perfect tumbler for so many things. I have been using mine primarily for my daily lemon water but it could also be used for loose tea so that you can brew and drink from the same vessel. No more cleaning multiple containers just to have your "special" tea during the day or night.
I will be trying this one with all the loose teas you have at home. I think we are the "loose tea" family because I personally think loose tea makes for a better flavor and I can see this tumbler being perfect for that as well.
Another one of the things that is perfect for the hot drinks I have been using it for, is the fact that even though the inside is hot, the outside isn't so you don't have to worry about "warm fingers" when you grab and go. Oh and since it is stainless steel, inside and out, it is durable.
It really is very easy to use. I have been using mine just like this for about a week and think it will be a welcome "friend" all winter long. Here is a real quick video I did when I was first starting to use the tumbler. It's also one of my first videos one handed so ...
The infusion basket is BPA free, and can be removed once the water has been infused with your desired flavoring or as I did, just left in place to continue flavoring the water as I drank it.
As you can see in the other pictures, there is no "flip top" to drink from, the top just screws off for you to drink.
At first, I was a bit concerned that it would therefore be spilling all over when I tried to take a sip, I was wrong. Somehow the inside valve seems to regulate the flow of liquid as you tilt the tumbler to drink.
It has a non-slip padded bottom and it fits in most car cup holders. I can't tell you how many tumblers I have had that, even though they say in the advertising that it will fit in a car cup holder .. it doesn't.
Here you can see it easily fit in my car cup holder ... and did not go wobbling around as I took the curves. I will definitely be using this tumbler for many years to come.
If you are looking for an infusion Tumbler I recommend the Ovente Flavor Infusing Tumbler. It keeps your liquids hot or cold for a long time and looks pretty sleek too!
