We all know that everything tastes better in glass. But I didn’t realise until recently, how much better. Tea, green smoothies, even cool water with lemon slices. In glass. Much better.
I was travelling through China a few months ago, and everywhere you go, people are carrying glass bottles with infused tea inside. Glass bottles with straps, covers and handles. The Chinese taxi drivers don’t leave home without 2 or 3 glass bottles full of green spicy leaves and hot water. Glass tea bottles are BPA, phthalate, PVC, and polycarbonate free.
Using glass for hot or cold drinks means no chemicals leaching into your drink and no metallic taste. The wide mouth bottle design makes it easy to add loose teas, fill-able tea filters, or ice.
In China I bought a glass tea bottle with a black rubber cover for insulation. I use it every day for my green smoothie or tea. I fill it up with my drink of choice, throw it in my handbag and sip away whilst dropping the kids to school and then on to the office. It tastes fresh. It looks good. I’ve converted.
