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 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.
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.
