Tea and the British seem to be inseparable in our perception of English culture. When Bodum was asked by the British Tea Council to develop a new way of brewing tea we were rather proud. We set out with the goal to make an innovation in tea drinking, and the Bodum tea-brewing system was born: Boil water… Place your preferred tealeaves in the stainless steel filter… Pour in the hot water… Wait 3-4 min. or to your preferred taste… Press down the plunger… The brewing process has stopped – no need to remove the filter – no mess – no burned fingers, only the true unforgettable and delicious taste of your preferred tea. Made in brosilicate glass jug, glass handle, and steel infuser and lid. The clear glass makes the infusion visible at all times, making it a very attractive table piece. Everything can go in the dishwasher, the jug (without the rod and lid) can go in the microwave.
