After trying several travel tea mugs, this one is the one. No leaking, no loose tea leaves in my tea and it keeps it hot on my long drive to work each morning. I even use in the afternoon for another cup of my Republic of Tea tea!

Mainly great with one small issue

I just received this travel mug the other day and really love it! The double-wall design keeps the tea hot without burning your hands. I drink a lot of tea, so I appreciate the 12 oz. capacity. I agree with the other comments that the plunger is not long enough. Even when I use two bags of tea, it doesn't seem to make sufficient contact to fully press the bags. I have just purchased some 1.75" X .75" whiskey disk stones to serve as a spacer. One of those at the bottom of the press should allow me to squeeze the steeped tea to my liking! Hopefully the manufacturer will include a longer plunger in future designs.

Great for loose leaf and tea bags

I bought this primarily because I've been having a hard time finding a way to steep my loose leaf tea without getting little bits of it floating around. I also take a lot of my tea with me on the go, so this was a perfect solution to all my problems. The mug is a great size and fits well in my car cup holders and it also carries a great amount of tea to sip throughout the morning. I'm also extremely happy with the press because not only does it contain all the loose leaf tea in the bottom of the mug without letting little bits float throughout, but when using a tea bag, it allows you to leave the bag in the mug without making your tea taste like the bag after a while. I couldn't be happier with this product, I use it every day and only wish that I had more!

I get so many compliments on this cup. I got it for Christmas a few years ago and actually forgot I had it. This is the best gift I ever got. My only regret is not using it sooner. My husband wants one now and he rarely drinks tea.

Bought two of them and so glad I did. Have one at work and one at home. Have had no problems with the loose tea staying below the plunger.

Many other travel strainer mugs don't have a sippy cup lid. I really appreciate that. When you're on the go, a standard cup opening isn't wise.

The press does not prevent tea leaves from getting in the tea. The sieve is faulty. The plastic lid is flimsy and does not prevent tea from dripping on your front as you sip your tea.

This is an outstanding travel tea press. The liquid stays hot and the loose tea stays below the the strainer. Its easy to clean and worth the investment. The press top and flip sip cover are tight and any leakage is very minimal and actually due to my filling it too high. The grip is large and provides you with a good sized area to hold the hot mug. II highly recommend this one.

I've had one of these for over a year, and I'm pretty happy with it. Recently my dad decided he wanted one like it, and only after shopping around and discovering the store from which I purchased mine had stop carrying these did I realize how rare the design was for tea mugs. It's very practical for people who want to drink loose-leaf tea on the go in a self-contained, durable unit. Also, it's priced much more reasonably for the value. Other designs I've seen require you to set the steeper to the side or figure out how much tea you can leave in indefinitely without it going bitter. Not to mention many are made of glass or porcelain, which looks nice but carries the potential of breaking when you're on the move. This travel press comes with none of those issues. My only complaints about the RoT Travel Press are 1) the snap-back top is not completely sealed when closed, so it can leak a little if tilted, and 2) as others have mentioned, the press doesn't go down quite as far as it could. In my exper

I have 3 of these and LOVE them..

I love this travel mug. I have the smaller 6 oz mug as well and love that, too. Others have complained that the plunger does not go down as far as the smaller mug does - but this mug is 12 oz. and therefore requires double the amount of tea. If you add 2 teaspons or use 2 tea bags, the plunger is perfect. If you are only using one serving (1 tsp of tea per 6 oz), then no, the plunger does not go down all the way.

Love this so much!!

This was perfect. I have the smaller 6 oz travel mug and loved it so much I wanted a bigger one. Others have complained that the plunger does not go down far enough, but you have to remember this is a 12 oz. mug and needs twice the amount of tea. With two rounded teaspoons of tea, the plunger goes far enough.

Very pleased with the mug. Does make you sip and enjoy - now taking more tea on the go! Do wish the press did go down a little more than it does.

Major Disappointment - the design makes no sense!

The Travel Press went to the bottom and I loved it, but it wasn't big enough, so I sent it back for the bigger one, never dreaming the design would be different. The press does not go to the bottom, so you have a space with tea and tea leaves or tea bag. I should have read the reviews!

Too Much Space

I love this cup. Only thing that would make it better is if the press was closer to the bottom. If you use a loose leaf tea it won't press to the bottom and if you use a tea bag there is still so much liquid in the bottom to drink.

Love this go-cup! A perfect way to enjoy loose-leaf tea at work or on the road. Only thing I'd change is the length of the pole to the strainer - it should go closer to the bottom, please, so that we can actually press into the leaves.

Love the cup! It's a great idea for loose tea drinkers on the go. And I'm able to brew the leaves again. There are just a couple of small things that could be improved. One is the size. I would love for the cup to be just a bit larger (I drink a lot of tea). And also, it would be great if the plunger didn't prevent the last bit of liquid from coming into the cup portion. Maybe I wouldn't care too much about the second part if the cup was larger ... All in all, though, I really love the concept and have had no problems with tea leaves escaping the strainer.

This is a wonderful container for preparing tea on the go! Love the rubber sleeve and the spout. My only issue is that the plunger doesn't reach the bottom of the container. I wish the loose tea/tea rounds got more thoroughly smashed under the plunger. I get the feeling that the tea under the plunger is still steeping and therefore can mix with the tea above the plunger.

I bought this a couple days ago as I LOVE to drink loose leaf tea at work. The two things I didn't like about it is that some of the leaves still manage to make it into my drink. Also, the plunger doesn't push to the very top of the tea leaves so there is some extra liquid that you can't get to. I like it okay but isn't that great.

Not well thought out

The filter press screws off the same direction as the top, so when you unscrew the top, the filter often unscrews from the press bar and stays in the bottom of the cup. You then have to go back, fish it out, and try to get it cleaned. If the filter screwed on backwards, this wouldn't happen.

I saw this for sale in a coffee shop last weekend and bought it to use as a travel French press for coffee. I must say - I'm very satisfied! I will have to invest in some loose-leaf tea, of course.

It gets the job done, but it is really messy to clean up and doesn't store much drinkable tea. There are much better travel mugs out there.

Overall this cup is ok and well made, but after about 10-15 uses the leaves start to slip past the silicon seal.
