Libre Tea Promotes Tea Moments

Comments 3 by Rebecca Bollwitt

I first heard about Libre when I was running my contest for the Genie Gift Box. I finally met Wendy of Libre recently and learned a bit more about her product, loose-leaf tea, and the Sunshine Coast.


Libre is a portable tea “to go” mug made of glass and polycarbonate, and the mouthpiece is BPA-free plastic. Basically you can put hot tea right in there (or cold), watch it steep, and take clean sips thanks to the little strainer screen.


If you have black tea or a finer blend, you can flip it upside down to steep and clean out the strainer before taking it on the go. It’s also ideal for blending matcha powder with just a few shakes.



Wendy brought me their “Glass’n Poly” as well as their all-glass style, which is just beautiful. She also supplied me with some local tea from the Tiny Tea Company in Gibsons.

Tiny Tea Company, Gibsons, BC

It was really nice to hear about local businesses and what Wendy calls the “lost corner of the 604” since Gibsons is also in the 604 area code.

You can purchase their tea glasses online and right now Wendy is also offering up the following: 10% off on the Glass’n Poly style with 25% of proceeds to a well-known non-profit for clean water. Also if you purchase 3 or more she’ll throw in free shipping.

If you do get your hands on a Libre glass, take a photo and share your “Tea Moments” on their Flickr group.

This was definitely a great reminder that the next Bollwitt day trip adventure should involve heading over to the Sunshine Coast (and that I should be drinking more tea).

Disclosure: I was not paid to write this post however I will be enjoying some local loose-leaf tea in my Glass’n Poly.

    Oh tea on the go! What a neat thing to have. If you can find hot water though. Wonder if it would work with my loose tea I get from Steeps.

    For sure, you can pretty much put any tea in there – from matcha to loose leaves, it’s great.

    If you do head up the coast, I would highly recommend hitting up “The Old Boot” in Sechelt for some Italian chow. Get the freshly made Focaccia as your (or one of your) starters. Yum!
