The body is a borosilicate carafe with a hand-friendly double wall. The top is a ribbed silicone stopper that plugs neatly into the mouth. Remove your filter after the pour and the silicone will act as a gentle lid while the dual wall insulates. The assembly can also be used for loose leaf tea, with the stoppers thin flanges intended to act as a filter.

The result is reminiscent of both French press assemblies and modern tea sets, while maintaining a distinctive profile. I wonder if the silicone would be easier or worse to clean than a French press filter, but I bet I'd also be less likely to let it sit guiltily on my counter for days.
