What IS this?!

Husband got given this free piece of promotional swag at a conference.

It's a double walled glass receptacle with a tiny basket in it. Wondered if it was for coffee/tea but there's no sippy bit so no good for hot drinks on the go?

We're mystified?

Is it one of those water bottles that have a section for herbs/lemon slices etc?

Water bottle with an infuser for lemon or cucumber etc?

Yes, I would say it’s for making cold infusions. The double wall helps it keep cold, and the basket stops all the gubbins coming out when you pour or drink from it.

But where the gubbins would sit, if you drank or poured from it, you'd end up with gubbins in your mouth/cup.

It's also quite small, so in terms of taking a drink on the go, it doesn't hold a lot!

Waterdrop bottles are this design although they have a removable insulated outer for hot drinks. They don't have a 'sipping bit' you just drink from the bottle. They also don't have a little basket you dissolve one of their tablets to flavour the water.

So no-one's any the wiser! 🤣 I don't feel as silly now!

You put the bits in the bottle and then the filter on top, surely?

bibbityboppityboo · 20/05/2023 13:45

You put the fruit in the bottom with the water, the tiny strainer is so you can just sip out of the top and the fruit doesn't come out! Like lemon / mint / lime etc

Exactly this. It's a strainer, not an infuser basket.

It's to make infused water - the fruit or whatever goes under the strainer so you can drink without it getting in your mouth.
