Steep & Go

My schedule is really busy so I’m always looking for ways to make tea on the go. When I saw this little doodad I knew that I had to have it. The Steep & Go is basically a modified water bottle cap that strains out tea leaves, making cold brewing a breeze. I actually had to pick up an Evian bottle to use this because the only bottles that I had were ones with short eco-friendly caps. I’m happy to report that it works like a charm. No accidental tea leaves in my teeth and now I can make cold brewed tea anywhere I want.

The instructions said that the tea would be ready in 10 minutes. I prefer my tea much stronger so I will usually leave it steeping on the counter for about an hour. It’s fairly easy to clean and I use it almost daily. I’ve had a lot of fun experimenting with cold steeping different types of teas now that I have such an easy way to strain them. Although it is made out of plastic, I am very happy that it is BPA free. The Steep & Go comes in four bright colors and is dishwasher friendly.


I purchased my Steep & Go from iHeart Teas.
