Just doesn't work

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 have been using one of these for a year and recently ordered 2 more so I can keep one at my office, one at home and one 'just in case'. They work great!

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.
