Although the Japanese have been developing a coffee culture for the last 100 years, most Westerners tend to equate Japan with tea. And for a good reason: tea is still a big deal in Japan, from the powdered matcha used in sado (the tea ceremony) to the standard nihoncha (green tea) served pretty much everywhere and a permanent feature of the omnipresent vending machines. If you are a little more demanding when it comes to tea, though, you should bypass the machines, sit on a bench and take a sip from your very own portable teapot: the Twistea Tea Infuser.
Perfectly designed and impeccably crafted, the Twistea Tea Infuser is a marvel of Japanese ingenuity: you just put the tea leaves in the top part with the strainer, screw the lid on, turn it upside down, pour in the hot water, screw the other lid, turn it upside down once again, and that's it! 380ml of tea of any kind ready in your bag, waiting to refresh you the next time you need a break. Perfect for everyday use, day trips or even longer travels, its convenient size makes it practically invisible!
