Description
A tea strainer designed with the details you expect! This strainer is large enough to steep a full pot of tea, but also fits perfectly into our Perfectea Glass Tea Mug for when you just need one serving. It has a silicone rim that stays cool during steeping so you can easily remove it. And includes a Teavana lid that serves as a saucer to hold the strainer when you finish. Made of 18/8 stainless steel with a laser-cut fine mesh for even the smallest tea leaves. Top rack dishwasher safe.

      Bought this to tide me over until my tumbler arrived. Was not sure what to expect on how it would go at work, but had a mug I wanted to take.

      It fit well enough, my mug top is rather narrow. The silicone surprised me by coming off in my lunch bag, but that proved to be a plus when cleaning it later--and it dries very quickly.

      The lid to coaster worked great on my desk. Though, I had a slight learning curve with draining the infuser. It hides a lot of tea. Tilt it 45° and it drains right off(into the mug, if you do it right).

      The whole set up is no more than the footprint of a water bottle.

      I've seen complaints of tough cleaning. I did not find any. A paper towel (I actually used 3) over the top, invert in palm of hand, and rinse from outside. No clog in the work sink!

      Am very happy with this infuser. Tempted to buy a spare, in case I forgit at home or work.

      I may buy another!

          Best Uses

            I just recieved my infuser a couple days ago and cant stop using it! Its features make it so convenient and fun (yes, I'm a geek!) to use. In fact, this infuser is so handy, I may purchase another so I can switch teas while my leaves are waiting for a second use in another!

            I love how it sits in any mug I choose and how the little lid fits on to steep then has a nifty handle to remove it and it becomes a coaster for the basket! You should keep in mind that the lid will have condensation on it so have a napkin or towel handy to set it on or wipe it off.

            Another mentionable pro is that the strainer is very fine and catches the most tiny particles. It does make it a little difficult to fully rinse out however, but quick rinses in between uses and a good dishwasher cleaning every few days I imagine would be sufficient.

            Excellent but fragile

            By Daily Tea Drinker

            from San Francisco, CA

            The design is brilliant; however, the handle for the lid breaks easily and the bottom of the steeper can easily be pushed out. I love it but the joints are not strong enough to keep up with me!

            Pros

            • Fits In A Drawer
            • Nice Handle
            • Stainless
            • Very Fine Mesh
            • Won't Burn Fingers

            Cons

              Best Uses

                I have tried at least 5 types of mug-sized strainers for brewing tea (all good) and yet this is the only one I have ever found that is perfect - won't burn your fingers, won't leach chemicals like a plastic mesh and yet keeps fine particles out of tea, has a sweet little lid with a handle and fits nicely into my tea drawer - what more can one ask?

                  Best Uses

                    I bought this along with the Perfectea Glass Mug. It works great and is sturdy enough to survive a depolyment overseas. It is easy to use and clean and fits the Perfectea mug perfectly.

                    I use a lot of loose tea and needed a strainer that I could not only use in a cup but any other container with hot water. This item is simply excellent!

                          Best Uses

                            I drink only 1, an occasional 2nd, cup of tea a day. I don't need anything that is going to take up a ton of space on my countertops or have dozens of little parts that all need to be washed out after each use. I store this in a mug in my cupboard and when it's dirty, I rinse it out and stick it in the dishwasher. As another commenter stated, the holes are big enough that teas like the rooibos can sneak in there. The particles settle and I just don't drink the last 2 sips. I love the cover that becomes the coaster. I will say that the rubber ring comes off for washing and is kind of a pain to put back on. I've just been leaving mine off though and try not to burn myself on the hot metal.

                                  I LOVE this infuser. I have so many products from Teavana, but this and the Perfect Infuser are my favorites. I love popping this in a teapot, adding my tea and pouring the water in. I use the lid to keep the water hot, but wipe the underside of it when thru seeping and it becomes the holder waiting of unit when lifting it from the pot. It's perfect! I don't like to leave my leaves in for long lengths of time, so I will make a strong pot of tea using the infuser, then transfer it to a glass pitcher to chill in the refrigerator and add water to the strength desired. The only thing I have to be careful with is the black rubber ring - it can slip off, but it's easy to gently re-position around the outside rim.

                                      This works really well. You get the advantage of the loose tea being non-compressed so that you get the full flavor. It is very easy to use, and also very easy to clean. I have the Perfect Tea Maker, and to be honest, I think I like this better, mostly because of the cleaning. I like that it has a lid to keep the tea warm, and then the lid becomes a coaster to set the strainer on. No muss, no fuss.
