Great concept, but the filter holes where you put the loose leaf tea let half of the tea leaf pieces into what my husband is drinking.

Unable to use the product because it leaks
I love the idea of this product and was very excited when my husband bought this for me. The downfall for me was a huge flaw in the design. First the pro. When it is vertical, the water doesn't escape into the tea leaf area which is a super. However, as you angle it to infuse the leaves it is the same motion to drink from, therefore, when I went to drink the liquid the higher the angle the more the tea disappeared into the lower section and it became a bit of a "tea all over my face" moment by the time I managed to get the tea to come back! It's not so bad when there's a lot of liquid in there but as it depletes this issue arises. I feel like there needs to be some sort of contraption which will prevent water from entering the leaf area whenever you want to drink. As an aside, user error came first as I didn't screw the bottom tight enough so the water leaked - definitely double check!

Was so excited to receive this as a gift but then when I took it apart, I discovered that the openings on both ends are wide mouth (I'm one of those "spill down my face" people if I don't have a little opening on whatever I'm drinking in the car...). Also although it is called Tea To Go, it doesn't actually fit in my cup holder (Honda CRV)... Really cool idea and fairly cool idea but didn't quite hit the mark... Might keep it but only for at home use of loose teas...
Unfortunately like some of the other reviewers this arrived defective. It looks as though the rubber seal is missing from one end and it leaked badly on that side. Only gave two stars as the one end worked fine so it seems like this would be a great product if both seals were in place.

Great gift idea for tea enthusiasts. Great quality!
I received the Tea to Go mug as a gift during the summer, and was very excited to try it out on the first chilly day of fall. Unfortunately, neither end is properly sealed, so no sooner had I begun to add water than I was covered in tea. Perhaps a faulty model? There is no seal in the top lid, and the seal in the bottom is visibly loose.
The Tea To Go is very well made and very stylish. The main components are made of glass so for my daughter this was great. (This product was bought for her Birthday in the USA) She loves the product but for one thing. She stated that the convenience of drinking the tea is simply not there since she has to "unscrew" the glass to drink. To make the product better for drivers/people on the go, she suggests putting a "flip top" type of mechanism on the top for drinking instead of having to unscrew as one cannot "unscrew" while driving. But other than that the product is perfect. My daughter loves her Tea To Go and was very happy to receive the gift for her Birthday. Thanks Uncommon Goods!
No comment. It was never used due to the leaking...
Always on the go Quick and easy
