It’s October and the foliage is breathtaking. Autumn greets us with a crisp palette of purples, reds, burgundy’s, golds, oranges and browns that dramatically decorate our landscapes. Along with this beauty though comes the chill of frosty temperatures. And that means turning up the furnace, pulling out the cozy blanket and soothing your soul with a hot steamy beverage. For many, an aromatic tea is the beverage of choice.
Tea is the second most consumed beverage in the world and organic loose leaf teas are all the trend. Making a pot of loose leaf tea can be messy and you still get some pieces of tea leaves floating in your cup. I’ve found a sustainable solution, enter Libre Infuser.
Libre is an earth-conscious company that is committed to sustainable people and planet practices. They’ve created drinking vessels that are not only beautiful, they’re environmentally friendly and good for your health. Their glasses have two layers; the interior layer is made of Borosilicate glass and the exterior layer is made from durable BPA Kodak Tritan plastic. Each glass comes with a removable stainless steel filter, twist on cap and an extra gasket.
I’ve never seen a stainless steel filter on a drinking glass so I think it’s an ingenious idea. The stainless steel filter catches all the little leaf pieces so every swallow of tea is pleasant. Plus, I love the eco-friendly and health conscious idea of having your fluids in glass instead of plastic.
The Libre Infuser Gift Set comes with 6 Tea Glasses- two each of Starburst Turquoise 14oz, Lively Leaves Green 14oz and Garden Dance Pink 14oz. I love the patterns, they’re elegant, whimsical and cheerful. Researchers have found that having positive words or images on your drinking cups lifts your spirit and changes the energy of your fluids. The word Libre means; the state of being free, letting go, bringing one’s mind and body to a place of rest and free from restraint. To me, it means finding your quiet zen place, your tea moment space, and I’m all for that!
The Libre Infusers are lightweight, portable, easy to use, easy to clean and can be used for any beverage aside from tea. We’ve used them for water, coffee, smoothies, hot chocolate, green drinks and of course delicious teas. They do keep your drinks hot for about an hour and tepid for another hour. The gasket on the cap ensures a tight seal and we never experienced any leaks.
Looking at these glasses you might assume that they would be hot to handle if they’re filled with piping hot drinks. Surprisingly, they are not; they’re very comfortable to hold so even little children can hold and drink from them. My family and I adore the Libre Infusers.
Whether you’re a teetotaller or love your chocolate mocha’s the Libre Infusers are the perfect drinking vessels to keep you sipping in style. Swing by Libre and check out their other infusers.
