Grand Prize item #1

Libre Tea
Amber has matured her taste to start drinking hot tea so I thought this tea glass from Libre Tea is perfect for her! She is old enough now to start having her own Tea Moments
The Libre Tea Glass is double walled, the inside wall is glass and the outside wall is poly carbonate, making it virtually indestructible! There are 2 screw on tops one contains the mesh strainer. 

There are 2 ways to steep your loose leaf tea! 
For limited steep times you will place your tea in the strainer between it and the cap, fill your cup with hot (almost boiling water) place the assembled caps on the glass and turn it upside down for the amount of time recommended to steep your tea. Then remove the screen and discard the steeped tea (some stronger teas can be brewed more than once) you can then replace only the top cap to take on the go.
For unlimited steep times you can just put the tea in with the water to brew and drink with the strainer on the glass to keep the loose tea in the glass and out of your mouth. Here is a quick video on how to make tea made by the owner of Libre Tea so you can see it in action! 
A few quick tips:
If your water is too hot 2 things can happen: 
1- it can scorch some of the more delicate teas and it will taste bitter or burnt
2- it will release steam putting pressure on the lid(s) which may cause leaks!
(So I would recommend letting boiling water cool slightly before putting the lid on) 
The Libre Tea Glass Should NOT go in the microwave or dishwasher!!!

We reviewed the 9 oz. glass n' poly glass, there is also a lager version of this glass in a 14 oz. and a mug version that holds 10 oz!
Our Experience:
We found the Libre Tea Glass very easy to use! There were no leaks with either of the "lids". Tea was kept hot for around an hour!  We weren't able to test it's durability since there were no drops...so far.
Overall I would recommend the Libre Tea Glass for anyone who likes to drink loose leaf tea on the go!
