Libre Tea Glass

Murchie's is proud to be able to offer the Libre Tea Glass -  the stylish, healthy and convenient solution for loose leaf tea 'on the go'.


Each Libre Tea Glass is hand-assembled and 100% BPA free - inside and out and is ideal for Murchie’s green teas, oolongs, white teas and herbals, as well as iced tea and cold infusions!


To Use: Loose tea can either go in the base of the glass and you sip through the filter lid, or the tea goes in between the filter lid and the top lid, the Libre is inverted for steeping, and then you remove both lids to drink the tea directly from the glass.


Both options are great for teas that can be infused several times.

Product Description

Details

The Libre Tea Glass has a glass interior for fresh taste and a durable poly carbonate exterior. The stainless steel tea filter is surrounded by BPA free polypropylene as is the lid interior.

How to use your Libre:

Since the Libre doesn’t have a spout like a traditional teapot, there’s no escape route for steam, and steam build-up can cause pressure. For best performance:

  • Ensure all threads at joins (all the parts that get screwed together) are clean and dry. If the threads are wet or there are particles on them, they may form ‘water locks’ and cause leaks.
  • Only add hot water to below the rim of the tea glass
  • Watch to see if steam is still visibly rising. Only twist on filter and lid to invert and/or go after steam clears (water should be below boiling temperature)
  • When opening, first un-screw the top lid slightly to ensure all water releases into the glass and does not remain in the filter section
  • Then you can remove the lid(s) to drink
  • Every Libre tea glass comes with an extra seal. Hot water is known to seep through even a 1000th of an inch, so changing out the seal in the filter can sometimes improve performance due to minuscule variations in the seal thickness.

    This is my favourite!Review by Shishi
    I like this glass to take tea with me to school. Or have it at home.

    I've already had it for over a year and I'm using it right now :-)
    It's a great size, and looks very nice as well.

    It's perfect, really.
    Thanks Murchie's. (Posted on 2013-01-16)

    Flavour Profile Guide

    Tea and coffee tasting is a very individual, multi-dimensional experience: one person’s perfect cup can be too strong or weak, too brisk or watery for the next person. At Murchie’s, we believe that the best tea or coffee is the one that YOU like the best! We use the following flavour profile guides to help compare our teas and coffees within a relative scale.



    Tea Strength Ratings

    This rating method indicates the strength of flavour each tea has when brewed according to our brewing guide.

    RATING
               
    RATING PROFILE
    Light/Delicate Tea | Murchie's Tea & Coffee              Light/Delicate: Very light in colour and delicate in flavour
    Medium Tea | Murchie's Tea & Coffee              Medium: Medium-light cup with slightly fuller cup
    Medium-Strong Tea | Murchie's Tea & Coffee              Medium-Strong: Medium-dark cup, medium body, and full flavour without harshness
    Strong Tea | Murchie's Tea & Coffee              Strong: Full body, rich cup, takes milk well
    Very Strong Tea | Murchie's Tea & Coffee              Very Strong: Rich, dark cup with very full, strong flavour and briskness

     


    Coffee Ratings

    We rate the flavour properties of our coffees along two dimensions: roast and body.

    Roast is simply a result of how long and how hot the beans have been roasted, which can be seen in the colour of the finished bean, and typically results in general flavour traits:

    Light Roast           More acidity, brightness and a slight pucker
    Medium Roast           Slightly richer flavours, some acidity, enhanced creaminess
    Dark Roast           Distinctive roasted flavour, sometimes notes of toasted sugar or charcoal

    Body is the term used to describe how the brewed coffee feels in your mouth:

    Light Body           Easy to drink with little lingering flavour, ‘thin’ or ‘clean’ feeling on the palate
    Medium Body           Heavier, creamier mouth-feel with more lingering flavour
    Full Body           Rich, full-mouth feeling: hits all of the palate and lingers


    Brewing Guides

    Brewing Guide | Murchie's Tea & Coffee

    Tea Brewing Guide

    Different types of teas should be brewed according to certain times and water temperatures to bring out their best flavours. Use this guide as a starting point, and then experiment until you find the perfect brewing method for your favourite tea.

    Based on approximately one level teaspoon (2.5g) of loose tea or one tea bag per 6-8 ounce (180-240ml) cup. For stronger flavour, add more tea. Brewing for longer may increase the strength of the tea, but will likely also cause bitterness.

    Brew times shown in minutes.



    Coffee Brewing Guide

    The simplest methods for brewing coffee are drip coffee, pour over and French press. These guidelines are a starting point; modify the ratio of coffee to water, the grind, and brewing time to your taste. If your coffee is not strong enough, increase the proportion of coffee per cup of water, grind the beans finer, or allow them to brew longer – or any combination of these factors. If your coffee is too strong, simply do the opposite.

    Drip coffee or pour over method: hot water is gradually poured over coffee grounds and slowly drips through
          • Fine to medium grind coffee
          • 1.5 to 2.5 tablespoons of coffee per cup of water

    French press: coffee grounds are ‘steeped’ in hot water, and then a filter presses down the grounds, allowing the finished coffee to be poured off
          • Coarse grind coffee
          • 1 to 1.5 tablespoons of coffee per cup (e.g. 4-6 tbsp for a 4-cup French press)
          • Pour about 1/3 of the water over the coffee grinds; wait about 30 seconds and then pour in the rest
          • Wait 4-5 minutes, then push down the plunger to separate the grounds from finished coffee, and enjoy!
