I have one of these and it's my easily favourite bottle. It's so good that I shill it to all of my friends whenever I have a chance.

  • Keeps tea at 60°C for up to 6 hours. It's so well insulated that if I make tea in the morning, it will still burn my mouth at the end of the day. Hence the need to pour into a cup before consuming, which I guess may be a disadvantage for some of you. I've put ice and water in it and it took 30 hours until all of the ice melted.
  • Pretty easy to clean, there's a removable silicone filter at the bottom of the mouthpiece that makes cleaning said mouthpiece not that difficult.
  • The thread in the cap is designed such that a half turn removes it entirely instead of multiple full rotations needed on many other bottles. This makes removing the cap while driving much easier with 1 hand.

    Thanks, hope these don't rust easily. I've purchased a random one in the past and ended up throwing it away after a few uses. Maybe this is better quality.

      I've had mine for over 2 years and there's no signs of rust. Your previous one might have used a cheaper type of stainless?

      If you'll allow me to get technical (I work at a commercial kitchen equipment manufacturer, think deep fryers etc)… I suspect that the T2 bottle is SS304 and your other one might have been SS430. SS304 is much more expensive due to its nickel content, but the nickel gives it much better resistance to chloride corrosion. A simple test to determine the type of stainless is using a magnet: SS304 is non-magnetic while SS430 is magnetic. This isn't a bulletproof test since there's lots of other stainless steel alloys that are magnetic and lots of others that are non-magnetic, but these 2 grades are the most common ones and therefore for most everyday objects there's a pretty high chance that if it's stainless, it'll be one of these two alloys.

      There's lots of different corrosion mechanisms but what most likely happened is chloride corrosion, perhaps from the chlorides present in tap water. Even SS304 will rust if you expose it to salt water too long, but it's much more resistant than SS430.

        Thank you for the informative and detailed response. I appreciate it.

    I took this to the beach once. BIG MISTAKE. the grains of sand wil scratch away the black paint that coats the flask.

    Can you use it for coffee?

      I've found that beverages that have really strong smells aren't a good idea because it's hard to remove the smell/flavour without soaking it in a bicarb soda solution overnight. Wouldn't recommend it.

      I think it's the mouthpiece/cap that retain the smells and not the bottle interior but I'm not sure.

    If you need a bottle for tea, there are better options IMO. There are bottles with tea filter at the bottom, in other words you don't need to pull the filter out to take a sip. And perhaps glass is a better material for the tea. I can't find any good deals at the moment, this is just for reference

      Thanks didn't think about that, cancelled my order.

      • +1 vote

        I was thinking of cancelling too but in reality you would brew and take the infuser out before you take this on the go

        It's not a good idea to leave the leaves in there for too long

      Not sure what you mean by this? You don't need to remove the infuser to drink from it, the silicone piece at the bottom of the mouthpiece is a pretty effective filter.

      •  

        I don't have this bottle, so I'm not going to argue with you - it might be possible to sip from the bottle while the filter is inside. However, if you check the Amazon listing, there are pictures of the box with instructions on it, and the last step is 'remove the infuser' :)

        • +2 votes

          Ah. You can still drink with the infuser inside, but personally I remove the infuser after a few minutes otherwise my tea becomes over-steeped.

      You don't need to pull the filter out to take a sip on this one too. Did you think you had to?

    •  

      I have seen those types. Looks interesting, unfortunately they are not insulated. Defeats the purpose of having tea in a bottle

      •  

        Double wall versions also exist, although much more expensive. I got a single wall glass bottle in neoprene sleeve, it works pretty well for my needs.

    •  

      DUDE! You make the tea before you go. You don't leave the infuser in.

  • +1 vote

    Review is spot on. Also on the strong taste part. Got a lemongrass tea from T2 and the smells lingers forever!

  •  

    A question for those who uses a tea infuser bottle like this, wouldn't the tea overbrew from sitting in the bottle the whole day? Unless you guys throw the tea leaves away immediately after brewing it.

    • +5 votes

      From the listing advice you're supposed to remove the infuser before you take it out on the go

    • +1 vote

      It will indeed overbrew if you leave it in, so I generally remove the infuser after several minutes.

      • +1 vote

        Huh. I'm that case why not just brew it in a pot and then transfer the tea over to an insulated bottle?

        I guess it's a slight convenience and one less pot to wash.

        •  

          That would also work.

          Personally, I don't own a teapot and this bottle effectively serves as one for me.

          •  

            @naisuda: Fair enough. I suppose the other alternative it to just cold brew using the bottle.

            •  

              @ilikeblue: Yep, that works really well too! In summer I'll put some oolong tea with cold water and let it sit through the day, it's excellent.

    • +1 vote

      It actually depends on type of tea and the brewing process. I usually drink Taiwan Oolong and infuse it at the temperature 85-90 degrees. In the summer I use cold brewing process, i.e. pour cold water and put the bottle in the fridge. Both methods produce good results without overbrewing. You can also bring a second bottle with just hot water and dilute the tea in the bottle if it becomes too strong.

    I bought one of those really durable stainless steel ones from stanley. first time I used it, i squeezed a couple of tea bags into it and filled with hot water. i realized i was an idiot and it was impossible to get out. so i left it in there and it ended up making the tea taste like shit throughout the day.

    when cleaning it, it was still near impossible to get those tea bags out of the small hole. i had to use tweezers and make a mess. i guess this is what those are for!

  •  

    It depends what tea you brew, but you end up burning most after 5 minutes.

    If you left it in there for hours, it wouldn't taste nice. I assume people drink fruity teas or something.

    This looks good tho, but I'd hate to keep using a cup personally.

    I bought this 300ml version a couple years ago for $10.12 still in great condition.

    OOS or severely jacked? link points to $50 price

      Yeah what's the deal

    bad idea to put tea in stainless steel container. so amateur.

    •  

      Why? Do you have any sources?

      I had a look and couldn't find anything to back up your claim.

      The results suggested that the tea infusion from Zisha and Zhuni pots contain higher levels of EGC, EGCG, total catechins, and lower amount of caffeine than the ceramic, glass, and plastic pots; and tend to have the lowest total mineral contents, potassium and volatile compounds in tea soup. The statistical difference were not all significant among Zisha, Zhuni and stainless steel pots.

        I spoke to tea masters, and they would often talk in terms of elements and symbols, i.e. tea represents tree, and metal vessel represents axe; axe kills the tree. Clay pot represents ground/soil which suports and nourishes the tree.

          SS container won't bring out the warm and authentic of food and drinks. Needless to research. It goes beyond the taste and health. Just good for keep drinking water.

    Had this for 5+ years, great device, still going strong.

    There are some comments re: overbrewing; if, once brewed, you pour out a cup, the level will be below the infuser and it won't keep brewing.
