From stocking-fillers to keepsake presents, our original suggestions are sure to please husbands, wives and youngsters.
Eva Solo Tea Brewer With Red Neoprene Cover
You can make tea in two different ways with the Tea Brewer. The jug features a patented filter system which guarantees the best result. Herbal tea leaves are tipped directly into the flask so the tea can infuse optimally, and the leaves are then strained off automatically when pouring. Alternatively, tea leaves with tannin are placed in the filter holder and, once brewed, the plunger is fully depressed, thereby stopping the brewing process. It is also possible to make half a jug as the filter extends right down to the bottom. The tea brewer also features a drip-free pouring lip and a flip-top lid which opens automatically when pouring. The neoprene cover keeps the tea hot while emphasising the beautiful, rounded shape of the flask.
