The Steep & Go bottle infuser

When I was in Wisconsin recently, I bought a new tea gadget that I was eager to try, this Steep & Go cold brew bottle infuser for use with loose leaf tea.

The set consists of a cylindrical column with holes pierced in it,  a cap (shown at left), and two different sizes of ring attachments (both shown on the column here).

Just glancing at the package, I had assumed the column was supposed to then be filled with tea, but when I read the instructions, I learned that no, that is actually the part that filters out the loose leaf tea. That was surprising, and I liked the fact the loose leaf tea gets to "swim" while it is cold brewing.

I was skeptical, but friends, this thing works like a charm! I cold-brewed some Grapefruit Oolong from Adagio, and it gave me the citrusy taste I was expecting, and not one particle of tea slipped past that magnificent filter!

I also liked the fact it has a sports-bottle type of cap that lets you sort of squirt the tea out for sipping. Now I wish I'd bought two of these gadgets! Every year I try new bottled teas, and about 9 times out of 10 I am disappointed with the flavor. Now I have an easy way to take my owned bottled tea on the road, and I couldn't be happier with this infuser. It's made by The Tea Spot, and you can find it in their Green Tea color as well as a few other colors by clicking here.


  1. What a great idea! I'd much rather brew my own tea than use a pre-bottled one. Thanks for the information.

  2. Angie, That is a cool gadget for us tea drinkers. Great that it fits on most bottles so less to carry while traveling. Thanks for sharing. Sylvia D.

  3. That’s neat. I’ve never seen anything like it.
