I like this pot. It has a little press to force the tea out of the
water after it's brewed. Much better than similar teapots at coffee
shops I frequent.

HERE IS MY HANDLE!!!

I thought it was probably Bodum. I like how everyone saw it and was able to call it right away. They make my fabulous Pavinda double-walled espresso and 8oz glasses. *swoons*

I like their 9oz tumbler. Though I prefer cups with handles even if they're unnecessary given the design.

Is that a Bodum? Let me know how it goes - I wanted to pick that one up, but opted not to because some reviews on Amazon said it tended to break easily. Right now I've been using a pot with a basket and another with a large teaball.

That's a great mug!

Ick. What part of it breaks?

I can see issues with the press part but the rest seems sturdy enough.

The mug was a gift. I like the design and that I could probably kill someone with it. Hefty.

We have that one as well (along with many others), the glass is a bit thin, and I'm guessing the people that say it breaks are just rough with it.

Right. Don't bash against skulls. got it.

The glass parts used to break all the time in the dishwasher at Barriques so don't do that and you should be fine. It might even have a warranty on the glass, my french press from them did anyway.

The glass breaks easily, if I recall. I'll have to see how yours works. :)

I certainly won't be beat people up-side the head with it, if that's what you're waiting for!

But...isn't that one of the dual purposes of all tea-time accoutrements?!

I have that pot!
abmann From: abmann Date: May 20th, 2008 01:39 pm (UTC) (Link)
Have you broken it before?

Where can I buy this?
abmann From: abmann Date: May 20th, 2008 11:18 pm (UTC) (Link)
I got it at Target.
