Tea and the British seem to be inseparable in our perception of English culture. When BODUM was asked by the British Tea Council to develop a new way of brewing tea we were rather proud. We set out with the goal to make an innovation in tea drinking, and the BODUM tea-brewing system was born:Boil water... Place your preferred tealeaves in the filter... Pour in the hot water... Wait 3-4 min. or to your preferred taste... Press down the plunger... The brewing process has stopped - no need to remove the filter - no mess - no burned fingers, only the true unforgettable and delicious taste of your preferred tea. The clear glass makes the infusion visible at all times, making it a very attractive table piece.
