Meet the man who revolutionized iced tea
So who exactly designed this beauty? We sat down with our innovation manager and the man behind the invention, Dave, to get the scoop about this one-of-a-kind travel mug.
DT: How did you come up with this ingenious little gadget?
Dave: We wanted to eliminate some of the less exciting parts of making iced tea like cleanup and waiting time. The concept went through a few versions, but it really all came together in one day. The best balance for a new product is something simple that solves issues, but doesn’t compromise on the end quality. And I think this checks all the boxes.
DT: What makes the Iced Tea Press different from other travel mugs?
Dave: I think one of the really exciting features is that it actually completely shuts off the tea infusion. That’s big! Once the press is down, you can leave it there for ages and your tea won’t oversteep.
DT: Where would the Iced Tea Press fit into your daily life?
Dave: As a non-coffee drinker, I’ve started relying on it in the morning to jump start things with an iced maté or Japanese green tea. Before, I would have never taken the time. But because it’s portable, I can stay refreshed beyond my desk and take it with me wherever I want. Steeping on the go has never been easier!
