My Thoughts:

Ever since being diagnosed and treated for cancer, I have been looking for ways to improve my healthy, through exercise and the foods that I eat.  During treatment, I was turned onto loose leaf teas, and learned that they leave a small Eco-footprint, in addition to all the many health benefits teas like green tea have to offer. 

While I love my cup of Jo in the AM as a pick me up, I find myself reaching for the loose tea containers on mornings, and even evenings when it is cold outside.  There is something about a freshly brewed cup of tea made from loose leaf tea that helps me relax. 

But, being a busy mom on the go, when I have a craving for tea in the AM, I usually had to either make a quick cup with a tea bag and throw in a Thermos, or make and put in the refrigerator, to return to and warm upon arriving home.  It was always my luck that the instances that I took the brewed tea in the Thermos that the tea bag would open during the hustle and bustle of trying to get everything and everyone ready, and I would find myself sipping on the now lukewarm tea with bits of tea in it -- not enjoyable at all.  


"The Libre glass'n poly Travel Tea Mug Infuser (10 oz.) with a convenient handle has a health-conscious glass interior for fresh taste and a durable polycarbonate exterior for ‘on the go’ durability. The stainless steel tea filter is surrounded by BPA-free polypropylene as is the lid interior. It can be used 2 ways to brew and travel with loose leaf tea – tea in the tea glass or tea on top of the twist off filter."

It wasn't until I recently received the Libre 10 oz. Loose Leaf On the Go Travel Mug (currently on sale for only $24.95), that I could finally start enjoying freshly brewed loose leaf tea on the go, without the worry of swallowing tea pieces.  Last year, I shared my thoughts on the Libre Original, and still use this tea infuser to this day.  But, I have always wanted to grab and go travel mug of sorts to bring my freshly brewed teas in. 

Already being familiar with how the Libre tea infusers work, it was easy for me to brew up my first cup of loose tea green tea to enjoy.  Here is a quick video from the Libre Tea website that shows how you use their products to brew loose leaf tea --

Ever since receiving the Libre Loose Leaf On the Go Tea Mug for review, I find myself drinking more and more tea, as opposed to coffee, which is great, as I am not suffering from caffeine headaches or bad caffeine withdrawals if I don't got a cup of hot Jo every morning.  And, you know what, I feel better together, as I know that the green tea is great for your health.

When it comes to finding just the right gift for that hard to shop for person on your holiday list this year, why not consider picking them up the Libre Travel Tea Mug Infuser, or another of the Libre Tea styles, that will brew up a fresh, filtered cup of loose leaf tea each and every time?  Click here to learn more about the different Libre Tea styles available, as well as more about the company --

  1. My favourite tea to drink is peach tea. I would probably keep this.


  2. I have never had loose leaf tea. I would give this to my mom, she drinks tea all day.
