Product Description

Amazon.ca Product Description

We set out with a goal to make an innovation in tea brewing and the patented Bodum tea press system was born. Brewing loose-leaf tea or tea bags has never been easier or cleaner. The Bodum Shin Cha Small Tea Press serves 2 - 3 people and is made from durable, heat-resistant borosilicate glass. Designed after the traditional teapot shape, the Shin Cha tea press combines timeless lines with modern functionality. To brew, simply set the durable stainless steel filter into the pot. Fill the strainer with the appropriate amount of your favorite loose-leaf tea. Pour hot water over the leaves, filling the pot, then set the plunger/lid in place in the up position. Allow the tea to brew to your liking and then press down on the plunger. The press compresses the tea leaves below the infusion holes in the strainer completely stopping the brewing process. The Shin Cha puts an end to bitter, over brewed tea. Once you press, you can rest assured that your first cup and your third cup will taste exactly the same. There's no need to remove the filter and there's no mess. What you have left is the true unforgettable and delicious taste of your preferred tea. Some teas can even be brewed a second or third time, making the Shin Cha tea press the perfect choice. Just stir up the tea leaves and fill the pot back up with hot water, repeating the process. It is a clean and easy way to enjoy loose-leaf tea whether it is black, green, white, blooming or herbal tea. No Bodum teapot design recalls the simplicity of the traditional British teapot as does the Shin Cha. The handcrafted spout and Borosilicate glass sphere give it a classic look - uniting beauty and function.

I absolutely LOVE this teapot! It makes the best cup of tea I have ever enjoyed. The best thing about it is that I can make a pot of tea and leave it standing for hours...come back...put a cup in the microwave and it tastes like I just made it. No bitterness...no "stewed" taste. I bought this pot as a Christmas gift and then just had to buy one for myself. Money well spent.

design change, but I still like it May 18 2010
By The Conqueror - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Want to add a note, the pictures of this teapot is misleading. I just ordered my Shin Cha and got it last week. To my dismay, instead of the tea strainer being 100% stainless, they now add a rubber cushion around the top lip of the opening and continues down the strainer about an inch into the inside of the teapot.

I ordered a second one just to verify this, and the 2nd teapot came with the same tea strainer. I called Bodum, and they said that this is the new design to prevent the strainer from breaking the teapot.

Well, although I'm a purist when it comes to NOT having plastic/rubber elements in my food/drinks, I decided to still keep this teapot. I just don't fill the water high enough for it to touch the rubber, and I don't think anyone would want to fill it that high anyways.

Glass teapots make brewing my lose tea to the perfect stregnth that much easier, so I can get it steeped to the perfect time by being able to look at the color of the tea, and not just going by the time...especially on 2nd brews. When the tea reaches just the right stregnth, I push down on the stopper, and it stops steeping. And when I'm ready for another pot the next day, I just reuse the same tea in the strainer from the day before, and its all ready to go, just pour hot water in it again.

This teapot also has an excellent pour...no drips anywhere! I really like that, and it holds enough water for at least 4 large cups of tea.

So I can overlook the rubber, but it does bother me a bit that its there, but i guess I'd rather have the cushion, than a broken teapot.

Great Tea Pot for what I needed Aug. 13 2012
By nickw - Published on Amazon.com

People have been complaining about how fragile the thing is, but I don't see it. It's glass, you drop anything made of glass and it will break... I don't see how you can expect glass to stand to impact and not shatter, if you're worried about that then get a metal teapot or something.

I've had no problems using, brewing, and cleaning this thing. It looks great, I can see my tea's color change to stop at the perfect brew point. You will get some residue that's hard to clean along the spout thing, so use a wire brush to get that area.

So in conclusion, buy this if you want a clear tea pot that you can see your tea color as it steeps and if you're the kind of careful person that understands the basics of glassware.

graceful lines, good brewing June 20 2008
By Kathe cc - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This teapot has graceful lines and is delicate. I've had other Bodum glass tea pots and with the exception of the two cup size, they all made tea brewing easy with a wonderful and 'satisfying cup of tea" result.

My favorite teapot Feb. 28 2009
By kimwood - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The best teapot design around. So elegant and easy to use. The clear glass allows you to see if your tea has finished steeping and achieved the right color. I love the pouring spout so much more than the one on the Assam version. Makes a wonderful gift for any tea lover!

Perfect for one or two people Sept. 10 2008
By catsy - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I've always been a Bodum fan and I've had two of these in my kitchen. It's the perfect size if you're having tea for one or two. The nozzle stains when you frequently use it but it doesn't pose a problem. Design is sleek, it's lightweight and easy to clean. Only catch is that if you're not careful, it also easily breaks.
