For many people, the day doesn’t start until they have a cup of coffee and tea. That’s why a lot of people even have reusable bottles in which they carry their beverage of choice.
But can you use a stainless steel bottle to hold your coffee and tea? Well, that’s what we’re going to talk about today.
Can you put coffee in a stainless steel water bottle?
Yes, you can put coffee in a stainless steel water bottle. Coffee isn’t corrosive enough to damage this material. Also, the stainless steel won’t leach any chemicals into your coffee and tea, even when it’s hot.
Can you put tea in a stainless steel bottle?
Yes, you can put tea in a stainless steel bottle, even when it’s hot. Tea doesn’t affect stainless steel in any way and the latter doesn’t affect the former anyway. Also, stainless steel bottles can handle most hot beverages, even hot chocolate.
Can you put iced tea in a stainless steel container?
Yes, you can put iced tea in a stainless steel container. You can also use such a container to store other cold beverages like soda and lemonade.
What other containers can you use to hold coffee and tea?
Apart from stainless steel bottles, you can use any of the following to hold your tea or coffee:
1. Aluminum bottles
These can be used for both cold and hot coffee and tea. However, they won’t maintain the temperature of your beverage and will soon be the same temperature as your drink. This is particularly dangerous when handling hot beverages.
Another thing to keep in mind when using aluminum bottles is that they are not suitable for some beverages, especially acidic ones.
2. Glass bottles
These bottles are suitable for iced coffee and iced tea. However, they don’t retain the temperature of your beverage and are unsuitable for hot beverages.
If you place hot coffee and tea in a glass bottle, it will burn your hand, making it easy for you to drop it. And to make matters worse, these bottles break easily.
3. Plastic bottles
While not ideal, you can put your coffee and tea in plastic bottles. However, opt for one that’s BPA-free so that these chemicals can’t leach into your beverages. Also, keep in mind that these bottles are better used for cold or room-temperature beverages. The hotter the beverage the higher the chances that leaching will occur.
Remember, BPA and other plastic-related chemicals can negatively affect your hormones, reproductive processes, and overall health. So the more you avoid plastic bottles, the better.
When it comes to storing coffee and tea there’s no material more efficient than stainless steel, particularly when it comes to heat retention.
