Libre Tea Glass & Ming Mei Tea Sponsor Review

I have been using my Libre Large Tea glass for quite awhile now but now I have a smaller one which they say is the Original Libre Glass. I love it because some days I just don't feel like drinking as much. The great folks at Libre Tea have been so nice to send me the smaller glass to review and a package of Ming Mei loose tea to use in the glass.

Both glasses are so easy to use and they have included instructions for you if you need a little help. The bag of Ming Mei will have 15 individual tea bags in the bag that they let me review and will also be the same bag that my winner will win in the From Our Hearts to Yours Valentine's Day Giveaway that starts on the 1st and ends on the 14th.

Ming Mei tea is one of the 30 top Chinese Teas and it is a green tea and you are gonna love it!

The Libre glass ’n poly Original has a health-conscious glass interior for fresh taste and a durable polycarbonate exterior for ‘on the go’ practicality. The stainless steel tea filter is surrounded by BPA free polypropylene as is the lid interior. Can be used 2 ways to brew and travel with loose leaf tea. I like that this size is easier to fit into my handbag and in the cup holder of my car! Oh, and it is alot easier to fit into yours or your children's back packs. You all can have fresh tea while you take a quick break while hiking and enjoy whatever flavor of tea you like the best right out there with nature!
Each Original glass has these requirements:

1.Volume: 260mL
2.Size: approximately 7.5" tall, 2.5" diameter
3.Materials: glass, BPA free polycarbonate, stainless steel

The third cup or glass is the only one that I have not tried yet and that is the Libre Tea Mug. I think if I ever do another review, I would love to try them. The difference in the mug is that it has handle on one side to hold just like a coffee cup. I am wondering if that would fit in my handbag also? The handle might be the only problem that I can see. It would be kinda cool to have a see thru mug to drink out of! I also love that you can buy the finer filters now that are better at holding the smaller bits from rooibos and herbal teas. That has been my only problem and looks like now they have solved that by making the finer filter! Alright! No more little pieces floating around in my cup of tea anymore!

Found a little history in the About Us about how Libre Tea was born:
Thanks for being curious! Libre tea glasses are brought to you by Energetic Marketing – we are committed to sustainable people and planet practices, excellent customer service and engaging tea moments for all to enjoy and relax with.

My journey began in 2006 when I visited China and enjoyed many tea tastings. I traveled to many gardens and temples and loved all the opportunities for tea moments.

Tea, for me, is symbolic of an ancient ritual celebrating the secular as sacred. It is a space to take a breath, reconnect with oneself and the world. It is a time to stop — to enjoy life, people and the planet and remember the joys that life has to offer.

Inspiring tea moments - anytime, anywhere - is my mission. I welcome any comments or ideas, and value your input to give these tea moments shape and meaning.

Our company started in 1999 and began enjoying tea moments with Libre in 2008. We are proud to be a 100% wholly owned Canadian company and so appreciate this opportunity to share the convenient and beautiful Libre tea glasses with you and your customers.
You can use this locator to find out if there is a store near you that sells the Libre Tea products if you don't like ordering online. I know some people are still squeamish about it and that's okay. Just check out the locator and see if you can find a place near you to go and look them over. You can also become a fan on Facebook to keep up with what all is going on with Libre Tea. And lastly, you can view a video on YouTube if you need help with any of your Libre products.

As I said in the beginning, you will see the Original Libre Glass and a bag of 15 individual loose leaf Ming Tea bags in the giveaway, From Our Hearts to Yours Valentine's Giveaway/Blog Hop. Good Luck!
