Kitchen Gear - The IngenuiTEA Pot

Nick and I drink some hot beverage (at least) once a day. On the weekends we'll drink coffee since it takes longer to prepare, but during the week we drink tea. Tea making is usually my responsibility since I am often the first one up. I make two cups, one for him and one for me. I take mine to work and leave his on the counter for when he wakes up. I had been using our french press to make the brew, but cleaning it was a pain and whoever got the tea at the bottom of the press got all the good (read: caffeinated) bits. It worked well, but we were on the lookout for something better. Then, wandering through some shops in Winter Park, we spotted IngenuiTEA at one of the local tea stores.

This is the coolest thing on the planet. Okay, maybe not, but it's still pretty neat. You put in the loose tea, add water, and then brew. When it's done, you lift the pot from it's base, place it on a mug and:

 It filters the tea from the bottom straight into your mug. It's also easy to clean, has replacement filters available and is dishwasher and microwave safe. We have the 32 oz so we can get two full mugs in the morning, but they also have a smaller, personal version great for the workplace.  

Any tea drinkers out there?
