4. Built-In Strainer Tumbler

Some tea tumblers come with a strainer built in at the top of the bottle to allow your loose leaf tea to float in the water as it steeps. This can help certain varieties of tea steep better than smaller infusers that may cramp the leaves. If you like to sip over a long time, it may be wise to find a variety of this that allows you to remove the leaves easily so as not to oversteep.


  • Greater space for loose tea leaves to mix and infuse the water with the tea flavor and benefits.
