Recently, I received a Mighty Leaf Tea – Tea Top Brew Mug. The travel mug is stainless steel which is great for keeping beverages hot or cold. The body is shaped perfectly for holding the mug while walking, driving, or curled up with a book in Barnes and Noble. My only complaint – the steel on the top portion of the mug can become pretty warm and uncomfortable to hold when full of hot tea. However, the remainder of the mug remains cool and easy to handle. Additionally, I was specifically enamored with the extra-large spout. As the proud owner of several stainless steel mugs, it is quite irritating when air bubbles form under the lid, pop and hot tea shoots through burning my lips. Not a problem with the Tea Top Brew Mug.
But the greatest thing about the Tea Top Brew Mug, is on the opposite side of the lid – there is a slit made especially for tea bags. A bit picky about the quality of my tea, I was excited to test the Tea Top lid with one of my loose-leaf tea sachets. It was simple – after sliding the tea sachet/bag tag through the slit the bag itself dangled into the Tea Top Brew Mug while steeping. Once complete, the slit is made wide enough for the sachet to be pulled partially through while sipping tea (see picture to the right). The bottom half of the tea bag fits neatly into the special molding of the lid. I must report, it worked like a charm… no mess… no fuss… What an awesome travel mug!
