Bodum Assam Tea Press With S/S Filter

Tea and the British seem to be inseparable in our perception of English culture. When Bodum was asked by the British Tea Council to develop a new way of brewing tea, Bodum set out to produce an innovation in tea drinking, and the Bodum tea-brewing system was born.

The classic Assam teapot with the new stainless-steel filter comes with a brosilicate glass jug, glass handle, stainless-steel infuser and lid. The clear glass means the infusion process is visible at all times, making it a very attractive table piece. Dishwasher safe; the jug (without the rod and lid) can also go in the microwave.

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.

The Bodum Assam Tea Press is available in 0.5 L (17 oz), 1.0 L (34 oz), and 1.5 L (51 oz) sizes.
