Product Review: Aspen Tea Infuser Mug from Grosche

Being a tea addict, I love my teaware almost as much as the tea itself. There is something about getting a new mug or a new teapot and adding the piece to your collection.  I already have a few Grosche pieces in my collection but I have to say, this is one of my favorites! The Aspen Tea Infuser Mug is the perfect answer to steeping loose leaf tea at work!

Let’s start with the mug itself. The mug is a great weighted glass mug that fits into the curve of your hand perfectly. I have this oddity where a mug has to feel right in my hand.   Something just clicks and I know the mug and I are going to be friends. That happened instantly when I held this mug.

Now to the infuser portion of this set and why this is the perfect set up for an office environment.   The infuser fits perfectly inside the mug with a little cap that goes on the top of the infuser. When you are steeping your tea, you can remove the cap and use it to place the infuser after you are finished steeping.  No mess no fuss! You don’t need a tea ball or need to deal with an infuser stick. In just three pieces that are made remarkably well, you can steep tea to your heart’s content!

I’ve brewed up green tea, oolong tea, herbal tea, black tea, white tea, you name it, I’ve tried so many different varieties.  And the process couldn’t be simplier! Scoop a few spoon fulls into your infuser, pour in your water, allow the tea to steep, remove the infuser, and you are set. Doesn’t get easier than that!

Clean up is easy as well. Just scoop the spent leaves out and you are set for your next cuppa! I’m a huge fan of this set up and am pondering picking up a few more for when I’m at my parents’ house or at home.

Overall, a wonderful addition to any tea lover’s collection or the perfect piece for a new tea enthusiast.  I highly recommend this piece for anyone’s collection! Plus, whenever a product is purchased from Grosche, Grosche will create 5 days worth of healthy drinking water for someone in need on your behalf.

A great piece and a amazing cause. Just a few reasons why I love Grosche so much!

Taster’s Review:

Being a huge green tea fan, I thought for sure I would not love this tea.  To be honest, I thought my tea snob would come out and say No- I will not like you.  You are a tea bag.  Mind you, I have been drinking tea bags from Paper Box Goodies all week but I still had that feeling.

Yep, my inner snob was shut up right quickly with one sip of this tea.  I am surprised how good this is.  Clean and refreshing green tea.  No fuss.  No mess.  Just a solid smooth almost sweet green tea with a hint of vegetal going on here and there.

I prepped this tea up using just the water spout on our coffee maker at work and VIOLA! Green tea on the go and in a flash! This tea saved me in a meeting that I thought for sure I was going to fall asleep in.  This tea is a great every day kind of tea.  One that I could drink all day every day!

Nicely done Ringtons.  This is the first tea I’ve had from them and I can say it won’t be the last.  Tasty!
