Bodum describes the Assam tea press as an innovation in tea drinking. The tea press is easy to use. Simply boil your water and place your preferred tealeaves in the filter. Pour in the hot water and wait 3-4 minutes or to your desired flavour/strength of tea. Press down the plunger to stop the brewing process. There is no need to remove the filter leaving no mess or burned fingers – the only thing left is great tasting tea! The clear glass make the tea pot an attractive table piece as the infusion process is visible at all times. The product is dishwasher safe.
