A two-way tea-leaf compartment – Brew and Filter – allows you to choose how long to brew your tea, preventing the bitter taste of over-brewing by placing the mug upside down as well as to filter out chunk leaves, rose buds. Such special design makes it easy to add tea right into the compartment without lump in tea.
Great for coffee drinkers but ideally designed for tea drinkers, the Pào Thermo Mug allows you to enjoy your favourite loose-leaf tea on the run. Beneath the ingenious locking flip-top lid, you’ll find a tea infuser: simply fill this with tea, add boiling water to your flask, replace the lid, and turn the entire thing upside down in order to brew your tea.
With an insulated double-wall construction to keep your tea hot while you enjoy it, there really is no mug better for the job!
