A modern twist on the traditional teapot, the Assam Glass Tea Pot is made from durable, heat-resistant and dishwasher-safe borosilicate glass and features Bodum's innovative tea press system. Its durable stainless steel filter and dual plunger/lid make it perfect for brewing up to 4 (8 fl oz) cups of loose-leaf tea. Just add hot water, brew to your liking, and then press down on the plunger. The press compresses the tea leaves below the infusion holes in the strainer, completely stopping the brewing process so you don't end up with over-brewed, bitter tea. There's no need to remove the filter, and there's no mess. Beautiful.
