Product Review: ingenuiTEA Teapot

Ok, so I realize that this post isn’t directly related to veganism, but as a huge coffee and tea fan, it all goes hand in hand with the food — at least in my opinion.

A couple of weeks ago, my friend invited me to a Tea 101 class at the Louisville Tea Co., a new spot in town to buy loose-leaf teas and to have a cup or two. I was excited to go, but already being a tea drinker, I didn’t think I’d learn much. Boy, was I wrong. The two-hour course was super-informative and I learned lots of interesting things about how different types of teas are processed. If you live in or around Louisville, I highly recommend the class. It’s a lot of fun.

While there, I was introduced to the ingenuiTEA teapot. I’m always looking for an easier way to brew my tea and after just a few uses, I’m already in love. Just add your tea leaves and pour in the water. The leaves have plenty of room to expand so that you get the most flavor and benefits from the tea. After the appropriate brewing time, just set the teapot on top of your cup and the water comes out of the bottom to leave the leaves and any tea dust behind.

And, of course, be sure to serve your tea with vegan scones, biscotti or shortbread (see what I did there?).
