Product Inspirations – Stainless Bottle (SJ-JS10)

Our large 1-liter capacity Stainless Bottle (SJ-JS10) is here, just in time for spring!

This new bottle is lightweight, compact and strapless, maximizing capacity while minimizing the space it takes up your bag. The twist-off lid functions as a standalone cup and lets you drink hot or cold liquids like you would in a teacup or mug, and conveniently allows you to let your beverage cool or warm to the temperature of your preference. The inner surface of the bottle utilizes an innovative double nonstick coating to enhance durability and provides greater protection of the stainless steel against salt-containing beverages like sports drinks.

Along with these unique features, this Stainless Bottle is made with high-quality, durable 18/8 stainless steel, and utilizes Zojirushi’s superior vacuum insulation technology. The air between the outer and inner layers of the stainless steel is removed so the heat is blocked from transferring through it, greatly minimizing the temperature change of your beverage.

This bottle is smart under the lid, too! It features an advanced stopper with a spout that is opened by a one-touch button, making pouring simple and mess-free. And pressing the close tab seals the spout. The extra-wide mouth accommodates full-sized ice cubes, which makes filling the bottle easy. The stopper and spout, as well as the other areas that come into contact with your beverage, are BPA-free. And as with all Zojirushi products, this bottle can easily be washed with warm water and mild dish detergent.

The Stainless Bottle (SJ-JS10) comes in two finishes, a classic Stainless and a bold Red with a fun camping print.

So, with a 1-liter bottle such as this, which favorite drinks would you carry around? We have so many to choose from! We always love a perfectly brewed cup of Hot Green Sencha Tea and classic British Tea. For a cold treat, we love this Shaka Plantation Tea which blends black tea and pineapple. And you can’t go wrong with Simply Iced Coffee!

No matter what you drink–water or tea or coffee–we know you’ll love carrying this stylish, versatile bottle wherever you go!

It’s National Hot Tea Month, and we love our vacuum-insulated Travel Mug (SM-YAE48) for keeping our freshly brewed green tea hot and delicious!

The Travel Mug (SM-YAE48) is stylish, versatile and convenient. It rests securely in most car cup holders, taking up minimal space while maximizing the capacity of the mug, which can hold up to 16 ounces. The leak-proof design makes it ideal for carrying in a bag, backpack or purse. And the unique lid is designed to flip open completely using a two-step process that minimizes spatters. The drinking area is designed to comfortably fit the contours of your face and the air vent in the spout is designed to let beverages flow out smoothly.

The Travel Mug also features Zojirushi’s superior vacuum-insulation technology for outstanding heat and cold retention along with the hygienic electro-polished SlickSteel® interior, which repels odors and stains. The wide mouth opening makes it easy to fill and clean, and the entire mug can be washed in warm water and mild dish detergent.

These features make the Travel Mug perfect for taking beverages with you where you might be going. Morning coffee and tea stays hot during your commute. Cold drinks such as flavored waters retain their temperature and taste throughout the day in the Travel Mug.

Brewing sencha tea with a Zojirushi Water Boiler & Warmer

We particularly love this mug for drinking hot Japanese Sencha green tea. To make Sencha green tea, start with water heated to 175°F. Our water boilers are great for heating water to the exact temperature, but heating in a kettle on the stovetop works as well. When the water is at the right temperature, place the tea leaves in a pot or large cup. Be careful not to brew the tea with water at too high of a temperature, as the tea will become bitter. Pour the hot water over the tea leaves and let them steep for one to two minutes. While the tea is brewing, swish hot water in the Travel Mug to preheat the inside. This little trick will help the mug to keep your drink hot longer. When the tea leaves have finished steeping, pour the strained tea into the Travel Mug, and you’re ready to go!

Our favorite recipe for brewing Sencha is on our website so feel free to check out.

The Travel Mug comes in four beautiful colors: Lime Green, Cherry Red, Dark Cocoa and Stainless and can be purchased on Amazon.com or at your favorite specialty retailer.

We hope you enjoy using it as much as we do. And don’t forget to pin a photo of your travel mug with #ZoGo!
