Commencing with their Santos Vacuum Pot Coffee Maker in 1958, Bodum has always focused on manufacturing products for daily life that are exceptionally beautiful. They have continued to merge design and function in a full line of French presses, kettles, grinders, cups/glasses and various tea and coffee related products that are all beyond comparison in character and style.
BODUM's classic ASSAM tea press utilizes the same brewing system as the French Press to allow for full control of the tea steeping process. The silicone plunger locks tea leaves into the bottom of the filter once brewing is complete, cutting off access of water to the tea leaves. Allows tea to be recycled for multiple uses.
- Perfect for use with any loose leaf tea or tea bags
- Silicone rim secures filter firmly into the teapot for precision pouring, and stays cool to the touch for safe removal
- Borosilicate glass body and handle; stainless-steel infuser; plastic knob
- Patented system stops brewing when tea is plunged so tea is not bitter

- Safe in the dishwasher except for rod and lid; also available in cast iron
We set out with a goal to make an innovation in tea brewing and the patented Bodum tea press system was born. Brewing loose-leaf tea or tea bags has never been easier or cleaner. The Bodum Assam Small Tea Press serves 2 - 3 people and is made from durable, heat-resistant borosilicate glass. Designed after the traditional teapot shape, the Assam embodies a more modern, spout-less look. To brew, simply set the durable stainless steel filter into the glass pot. Fill the strainer with the appropriate amount of your favorite loose-leaf tea. Pour hot water over the leaves, filling the pot. Then set the plunger/lid in place in the up position. Allow the tea to brew to your liking and then press down on the plunger. The press compresses the tea leaves below the infusion holes in the strainer; completely stopping the brewing process. The Assam Tea Press puts an end to bitter, over brewed tea. Once you press, you can rest assured that your first cup and your third cup will taste exactly the same. There's no need to remove the filter and there's no mess. What you have left is the true unforgettable and delicious taste of your preferred tea. Some teas can even be brewed a second or third time, making the Assam tea press the perfect choice. Just stir up the tea leaves and fill the pot back up with hot water, repeating the process. It is a clean and easy way to enjoy loose-leaf tea whether it is black, green, white, blooming or herbal tea. The clear glass leaves the infusion remain visible at all times, making it a very attractive table piece. The Assam is dishwasher safe and the glass teapot is microwave safe. The glass Assam Tea Press is available in both small (2 cup - 0.5 l, 17 oz.) and medium (4 cup - 1.0 l, 34 oz.) sizes.
