Review: ingenuiTEA

I'm not a huge tea drinker. I used to be years ago. Now that I have one of these ingenuiTEA cups (courtesy of my brother), getting back into the tea habit will be made that much easier.

Using it is super easy.

  1. Add tea leaves
  2. Add hot water
  3. Steep
  4. Put ingenuiTEA over cup
  5. Profit!Drink!

ingenuiTEA holds 16 oz of water, so you can make 2 or 3 small cups of tea to share with others, or one big cup to enjoy all by yourself.

Pro: If you like loose teas (which I prefer), it makes brewing single cups really easy. The strainer part is fine enough that you don't end up with tea leaves in your cup (unless you like that sort of thing). It's also fun watching the tea drain out. Also comes with a little dish to catch drips. Microwave and dishwasher safe too!

Con: Because ingenuiTEA sits on top of the cup, you can't really see how full your cup is getting (unless it's clear) so you'll kind of have to guess from how much has drained out. You'll have to be quick because ingenuiTEA drains pretty quickly. Of course if your cup is bigger than the amount of water you've put in, this isn't a problem.
