Did you know that Tea Bags aren't biodegradable? The tea is, but not the bags!

And there can be nothing nicer, certainly in Scotland than a good brew from a crystal, clear mountain stream using the best quality loose leaf tea or filter coffee.

It somehow makes for the perfect camping day and when this was recommended by someone just recently, it brought all the pleasures of 'enjoying the moment' back in a rush.

The MSR Mug Mate stores inside your mug and weighs in at a mere 28g. As it is hollow, you can still keep your stove or brew kit inside.  In use you can add the correct number of spoons of coffee or tea of your choice, for that 'fresh start to the day' taste.

When used, simply tip out the contents and spread them about, give it a quick swill and get back on the trail.

Not cheap, but certainly well made and built to last. Chocolate biscuits not included!

Service with a smile

My new Mug Mate was pressed into service 10 minutes after I received it and proved to be exactly what I needed. It makes a great mug of coffee and is so easy to use. From order to receipt to use, I have been very pleased. Than you, backpackinglight for an excellent service and product. All this and a free bag of sweets!

A pleasure for tea-drinker
Wednesday, 19 November 2014  | 

I have used this for years and just bought a second one for the office. I enjoy the ritual of measuring loose leaves and brewing a nice cup, then putting the sieve on the little lid. When it is time to clean up, I just knock the leaves to ground (outdoors, not in office) and they become just another bio matter. And I get to make tea as strong as I like from the tea I like.

For a tea lover luxury worth the weight.

Many uses

Coffee, tea, rinsing the quinoa. Repeat purchase: we've lost a few in both hemispheres (no-see-um midge netting is not a good substitute...messy)

good cup of joe
Thursday, 18 July 2013  | 

As a coffee lover bought this so that I didn't have to carry filter and filter holder on the WHW. Cup of Joe in the morning and then carry hot water in a small flask for fresh at lunchtime. The smell was justification enough!
