Libre Tea mug review and giveaway {School Rules}

My husband is a tea drinker.  He loves to unwind with a night time tea at night after we've tucked the kids into bed.  When we go to the mall, he likes to stop into Teavana and check out the loose leaf teas that they have there, but he especially likes the blooming strawberry tea.  He's the one who took the Libre Tea glass 'n poly for a test drive. 

Aspects about the Libre Tea Glass 'n Poly mug that hubby liked: 
  • It stayed cool to the touch, even with boiling water in it.
  • It kept the water hot longer, so the tea steeped better.
  • The filter didn't let a lot of loose leaves through.
  • It's big enough to get a good-sized cup of tea.
  • Portability is great and it fits in the car's cup holder.  Pour and steep on the way to work!
  • Tea mug is aesthetically pleasing with a glass interior and poly carbonate exterior.
  • It cleans easily (we  plan to hand wash)
  • It can handle loose leaf or blooming teas.  I liked that I could keep re-infuse the blooming tea in the same mug.
Things he didn't like, but could work around:
  • Screen popped out when he dropped it and it was work to get it back in. (So be careful there.)
  • He wishes it were microwaveable (at least the base part) to heat the water.  He doesn't have easy access to boiling water at work.
Overall:  Hubby gives it a 9/10 (still wishing it was microwaveable).  He would recommend Libre Tea mugs to his friends.

Buy it!  You can purchase a Libre Tea mug at their website.  Prices range from $24 to $32.50.
