    Quite honestly, the Perfect Tea Maker has been the greatest accessory that I have bought from Teavana thus far. I use this product at least once a day - and I now have three of these awesome Tea Makers at home (since I just got my whole family into tea, it is nice to be able to make multiple teas at once; i'd buy the larger tea maker but we all have different tastes in tea at home).

    I find personally that I get more flavour from my tea when I use the teamaker as opposed to a regular tea infuser (such as the infusers in the Tumblers, for example). I think it is because the tea leaves are able to expand better since it's a wider infuser.

    I've noticed people saying it is hard to clean. At first, I had a bit of difficulty myself putting it back together - but that was because it was a new product. People say the bottom piece gets stuck - and it can if you don't place it back in correctly. There are four little holes that put the bottom piece in place, which I don't think people realize. I would just keep that in mind. Its easy to put back together after the first time reassembling it!

    All in all, this is a great product and I definitely recommend it if you are a tea drinker at home! :)

    I've owned two of these before finally giving up on them. Ultimately, it's not worth your money. There's a lot of small parts, which makes it near impossible to clean. It claims it's top rack dishwasher safe, but I tried that on my last one and the plastic around the screen melted. And if it's melting in the dishwasher, who knows how well it's actually holding up to the hot water of tea -- always worried with plastic about it leeching chemicals. If you want something cheap and don't need it to last long -- maybe for a dorm room or something -- this isn't a bad option; but otherwise get a glass one.

      I have had this tea maker for years now and have never had a problem with it, I like to brew my teas multiple times so I put the whole thing in the refrigerator until I want to make more tea. I have never had an issue with it and although it can be a little hard to clean when little tea leaves get stuck, it is not that hard, and I believe it is completely worth it.

      Wonderful cup of tea!

        I often use the tea infuser balls but find tea bits floating in my cup. I also find that the tea doesn't have the opportunity to expand as much in the tea ball. I love the perfect tea maker! It is so easy to use, and as long as you pre-measure your water amount for cup size there is no need to worry about using a clear mug/cup. I don't find cleanup to be difficult as I just dump the leaves out and then rinse it out. This makes a wonderful cup of tea and looks good out on my counter!

          I bought this product with my first purchase at Teavana. I figured it was the best way to start trying loose teas without the cost of an arm and leg. I really like how innovative the product is and how easy it is to use. I did not realize I would need some clear mugs to go along with it, so I could see how much tea was being poured out. Also, I wish the coaster to set it on was a bit larger so I don't lose tea when trying to set the pitcher back down.

                  I love this infuser, and my Peach Tranquility tea, I probably drink about 10 pounds a month. I never use anything but this infuser, it makes the perfect cup every time.

                  This perfect tea maker lives up to its name. Since i have received this tea maker as a gift, I can brew a better cup of tea. Before, i placed the tea in the pot directly, or used the diffuser, which was messy or made the tea bitter from over brewing. The only thing that annoys me about the pouring system is that i cannot use a regular mug, this works best with clear cups and mugs so you can easily see how much tea you are pouring. This tea maker is convinent, easy to clean, and brews a terrific cup of tea.

                    I purchased this product for work and home. We have three of them. My husband and i both enjoy drinking cold teas and this makes making a cup of tea very easy. I first purchased for work so i didn't have to take three cups with me into the kitchen. One for ice, one for hot water and then one to hold my tea strainer. I get to have fresh cold or hot tea every day with no mess at my desk. Love the product.

                      I purchased this over a mug with a detachable filter since they were the same price and I thought the Perfect Tea Maker would make everything easier. However, I find it's not that much easier and it comes with its own caveats. First, I have yet to be able to remove the filter - even though it says it is removable - for fear of breaking it based on others comments. Even if I were able to remove the filter, its a bit messy to clear the tea leaves out - even more so when you can't dump ANY of the leaves down the sink (workplace). Second, don't get this unless you're going to drink all of the tea at once since you can't easily remove the tea leaves after they've brewed and have a pot available for refills (though it holds a little over a large cup of tea, so that's not too much of an issue.) When all is said and done, its a bit over-engineered.
