Review: Adagio's IngenuiTEA

ingenuitea (1)

I am a tea-totaler.  I love tea.  Coffee and I are not friends, but Tea and I are bffls.  I prefer to drink loose tea, and I've tried many different methods of brewing it: infusers, disposable sachets, etc., but none of these methods really stuck with me.  I always ended up falling back on the easy alternative: tea bags.

And then, my lovely boyfriend who knows me so well bought me an IngenuiTEA from Adagio Teas for my birthday (along with some herbal teas because I've convinced myself that I can't have caffeine after 3pm).  I have to say: I'm a convert.  Not only is it SO FUN to use, it's stupidly easy to clean.  Here's how it works:  scoop the necessary amount of loose tea into the container.  Then pour your boiling water and let the tea steep (duh).  Once the tea is ready, place the IngenuiTEA on top of your cup.  The mechanism on the bottom of the pot pushes up and opens a valve that lets out your freshly-brewed tea!  It pees tea!  Tea pee!  Watch the video below to see it in action:

Best gift ever.  I loved it so much, I bought a second one to keep at work.  It's only $19 and Adagio has crazy fast shipping.  If you have the IngenuiTEA or if you end up purchasing one, let me know how you like it!  And leave a comment with your favorite kind of tea.  Links, please :D
