Product Description

Product Description

Vacu Vin was established as a brand in 1986 and initially built its reputation by manufacturing and selling innovative, high-quality barware appliances. The original assortment included the award-winning Wine Saver Pumps, Vacuum Bottle Stoppers and Rapid Ice Wine Coolers that are now used in over 35 million households. In recent years, the organisation has placed considerable emphasis on expanding into the kitchen and food preparation market. The company's product portfolio continues to grow on a yearly basis as it strives to fulfil the ever-evolving demands of consumers in more than 80 countries throughout the world.

The Vacu Vin Tea Stick is a perfect gadget for those that enjoy drinking 'loose' tea (leaves) on a regular basis. The stainless steel section of the device features an angled opening that enables users to 'scoop' the desired amount of leaves into the stick in order to create their drink. With the leaves now inside the appliance - and the cap attached - simply place it into a mug/cup/glass of hot water in an upright (or slightly angled) position. The tea will then be released gradually/consistently from a series of small holes until it is ready for consumption. The stick can also be used to stir the tea whilst it is entering the water.

Any left-over leaves are trapped by the detachable cap and are easy to remove for subsequent cleaning. The Vacu Vin Tea Stick is highly durable and dishwasher safe.

I had rather hoped that with the tea stick I could wave farewell to teabags. Which? Gardening, the magazine published by the consumer watchdog, found that six out of the seven largest tea bag manufacturers, do not make fully compostable bags.

This is a good effort by vacuvin to replace the bag, which in my opinion isn't quite pulled off. The principle is good, but I found the resulting brew weak. If I used more tea leaves, then the boiling water couldn't circulate sufficiently around the leaves.

The process for removing the tea leaves is also not quite as simple as you are led to believe. Attempt to expel them while they are hot and you sting your fingers. Leave them to go cold and they set into a tough little pellet which resists all but the most violent attempts to be removed from the device.

After only a month, this has been relegated to the back of the cupboard , alongside the teaball. I'll keep looking.

Seemed like a great idea but is in fact pretty fiddly and awkward to fill with tea leaves. They should include a funnel of some sort. Also a messy afterwards. Tea bags look a whole lot better now...

The concept of tea sticks is quite good and I was really excited to try one, but perhaps I chose the wrong brand. For there are two major negatives with this device that I just can't get past. One, the thing is just not that easy to load (or charge) with tea especially if the container in which you keep your tea is deep or worse still you are running low. The way you load the stick or wand is to push it into the tea inside the container et voilà the wand is charged. Sounds simple enough, but the reality is unless your container of loose tea is fairly full, it just won't be that easy. A secondary issue with loading the stick has to do with the type of tea. Not all teas are created equal. Some variety use broken leaf tea and other whole and still other a mixture. Broken tea works pretty well with this system as they are generally of a finer consistency. When you attempt to load leafy varieties or specialty teas such as a Christmas blend it is much more difficult to get the tea into the wand. The other problem I have with this system of infuser is that it just to brew properly. I pretty sure that there are two reason why this is: 1) the holes in the tip of the wand are very small and there are not many of them, thus water is not able to flow freely through the interior of the wand resulting in a very weak and insipid cup of tea every time; and 2) the way the tea is load result in the tea becoming compacted, rather than loose again preventing water from flowing in and among the tea leaves. On a positive note, the one benefit to this system which actually inspired me to try it, is the ejection system for expelling the used tea leaves. On this infuser it is a manual systems (I've seen other that have a spring loading system) and works likes a ram rod.Read more ›
