Bodum Assam Tea Press


In stock. Ships next business day

The Assam tea press is the most popular item in Bodum's tea maker collection. The Assam's appeal might be its low price point or because it's easy to use but whatever the reason, the end result is memorable. The Assam tea press infuses the most delicious aromas of your preferred tea, whether it's herbal mint, as you might enjoy in the famous Kasbah of Marrakech, or a "two leaves and a bud" first flush Darjeeling.

The ABS plastic handle is attached to the Assam's heat resistant glass with a high-tech fixative to provide a secure and easy grip when pouring tea. The unique Bodum tea press strainer, made of polycarbonate plastic, can be cleaned in the dishwasher together with the teapot, making it the ultimate everyday tea maker.

Instructions for use:

  • Put the desired quantity of tea into the base of the strainer column.
  • Pour boiling water into the strainer column but do not overfill: leave approximately 1.6 inches from the lip (an overfilled teapot will not pour properly).
  • Position the plunger at the top of the strainer column and wait 4-5 minutes before pressing down on the plunger, or when the tea has reached the preferred strength.
  • The plunger should be depressed firmly enough to seal the tea in the base of the strainer column.
  • To speed up the infusion, gently move the plunger up and down two or three times. If using teabags, take care that they do not become trapped between the plunger and column wall.
  • We recommend 3-5 minutes for black teas, or 5-10 minutes for herbal or fruit teas. For green and specialty teas, follow the recommendations of your tea retailer or refer to the instructions on the Bodum tea package.
