Libre: Black Brush Tea Glass, Giveaway and Showcase

Yes, you read that right, it is time for a giveaway! The people at Libre were awesome enough to provide one of these beauties for a giveaway, and everyone should enter! Before I get to the entry form, allow me to introduce you to what has become my favorite cold steeper of all time.

The Black Brush Tea Glass! I have reviewed the tea glass on the blog before, where I talked about the pros and cons, but at that time the only thing I used it for was for grandpa style steeping, where I toss in leaves and hot water and go about my business. I neglected one of the most wonderful uses, cold steeping, and since it is starting to get warm the timing is perfect!
It is so easy to toss in whatever tea or herb (hello osmanthus and chrysanthemum) I am wanting to cold steep with cold water, put the lid on, and put it in the fridge before I go to bed. The next day I have cold steeped tea waiting to accompany me on whatever adventure I go on, be that at the zoo or just sitting at my desk playing video games.
As before my only real complaint was it not being fit for the dishwasher, I still have my scrubby on a stick so I can really get in there and clean the bottom, so no worries there. One piece of advice I will give anyone who either buys or is the lucky winner, read the instructions carefully! If you overfill it the glass can leak, and if it is too hot the lid can pop off creating a massive mess, these are not really complaints on the design, just problems that could be had if not minded. I might have on occasion added more liquid than I should have and made a mess in my purse, oops. So now the part you are all waiting for...giveaway time! You have until midnight on the 11th to enter, I will contact the winner for their address and phone number, so only enter if you are ok with that, good luck everyone!
