Tea Thermos - I don't know who uses one, but this home does!

Postby heliospace » Feb 8th, '13, 17:39

I see lots of pots, and cups, but not very often do I see thermoses that people use for their tea. I acquired this one for a christmas present to my partner, and when she's not using it...I am! I just wanted to share a breakdown diagram of the vessel. When the tea is not in use, you can flip the tea holder around with a lid to store it to save for later (steeping times are important to many of us here :)). Would you use one of these? Great way to drink tea on the go...

It has a gasket of some kind, but it is not removable. I am not sure if it is silicone, but it looks like it. I'll take a picture.

I use one to take chai with me when going out sometimes. Saves me money too, cos most drinks here in Melb start at AU$3.50 :roll: That counts up quickly given the frequency I visit the city.

See item 2 in this photo--I have a couple of these large stanley thermoses, good to make enough tea for one to drink over a reasonable-length working day at the office, or enough to share over an afternoon's clinic.

I have become more selective in what teas I brew for the thermos, because it takes a special tea to hold for hours before drinking without unpleasant deterioration. I usually stick to deeper roasted oolongs & mellow puerhs.

I got that little basket filled with some chocolate as an Easter gift, and it turns out to be perfect as a carrier to transport my teacups from the office to clinic or to nearby meetings. So I grab my thermos of tea, the basket with the teacup, and a handful of folders, and off I go.....

To be frank, this tea thermos is designed for tea, however, for what I really like to drink, it's kind of a pain due to the vacuum it creates with higher hot water temperatures. Oolong can hardly manage in it, and black tea is almost out of the question. It is recommended for green and white tea due to the temperatures being different. When it is closed, my partner, she has a difficult time opening it. Kind of requires strong hands.

Cool to see others use thermoses, too. I might have to consider an alternative to the thermos solution with a regular thermos, and just brew the tea (black and oolong) and then add it to a thermos.

Except I'm just carrying around my teacup in the basket, and leaving the teabrewing back in the main office.
