Takeya Modern Flip Straw with Carry Handle 18oz

I'll let you in on a secret. I love iced tea! I grew up drinking lots of the sweetened stuff. Now that my tea tastes have changed a bit I prefer unsweetened varieties but I still very much enjoy swigging a cold one. The trouble is, finding bottled unsweetened iced tea these days is like finding a needle in a haystack. Bringing my own seemed to be the only solution. I've tried both plastic and aluminum travel bottles but they were all hard to clean and added unpleasant tastes. That is why I was so excited when I saw these new glass bottles from Takeya.

I'm rather accident prone so glass makes me nervous. Thankfully this one also comes with a silicone cover. My klutzy ways have already caused it to take a few bumps and tumbles. I wouldn't recommend allowing it to fall from a large height though. It looks a bit like a grown up sippy cup when you are drinking from it but it certainly gets the job done. The lid is fairly airtight, though I did occasionally get a few smalls drips that were trapped in the straw. I hate the way plastic straws feel so I really like that this one has a silicone cover. I have a feeling that this bottle and I will be inseparable once summer time comes around.
