Great strainer

By Kelly

from Chester County, PA

Comments about Teavana Cool Touch Tea Strainer:

This strainer is fantastic!!!! Almost nothing gets through it that shouldn't (I drink chamomile tea a lot and chamomile goes through-gets stuck in everything, it even wiggles its way through the finest mesh somehow. Very little chamomile gets through and what does, you can't feel or taste.)

I have both this strainer and the PerfecTea maker- I noticed that the tea tastes different from this strainer, as best I know it's because there's a reaction that happens with all metal in an electrolyte solution that changes the taste slightly. This isn't a bad thing, it's purely a matter of preference. Owning and using both this strainer and the PerfecTea maker, I can't find fault with either but I honestly prefer this one.

One tip: If you are using the rock sugar and adding it when brewing, unlike the PerfecTea maker, you'll have to give the tea a stir after you remove the strainer. Otherwise all of the sugar will wind up at the bottom and you'll have super sweet tea at the bottom and unsweetened tea at the top!

It appears well made, is very easy to clean and does exactly what it's supposed to. It fits every mug that I've tried, and is even wide enough to fit my enormous 30 ounce travel mug (which the PerfecTea isn't wide enough for.)

Favorite Strainer of ALL TIME

By Jane D

from Philadelphia, PA

Comments about Teavana Cool Touch Tea Strainer:

I have bought and used a zillion strainers over the years and this one is by far my favorite. Can make either a cup or a pot of tea, and if used in a cup, the leaves are thoroughly saturated since there is so much room in the strainer. I really notice a difference - tea tastes so much fuller and richer. Also when used for a cup, the lid completely seals in the heat. I love this strainer and have asked for more for Christmas.

I love it

By Kaela

from California

Comments about Teavana Cool Touch Tea Strainer:

I really love this strainer. I've had it for about 2 months now and use it a few times a week. It's great for when I'm feeling lazy and don't want to use my teapot, as well as when I just want a small cup of tea.

It's really easy to clean. I like to remove the silicone rim first. It comes off easily and you can slip it back on, but what is nice is it isn't going to slip off by itself.

The lid is the reason I decided to get this. I love that it doubles as a little plate to hold the strainer in between steeps. A little bit of steam will naturally get on the bottom of the lid when steeping, I just keep a small rag nearby to protect my table from the moisture.

Cheap lid & bad customer service!

By LunaLace

from Connecticut

Comments about Teavana Cool Touch Tea Strainer:

I was wary about buying this tea strainer after reading reviews that the handle on the lid falls off. However, I decided to take the risk and just be extra careful with the lid. I've used the strainer a total of TWO times, very lightly each time. I stored it in the box after each use to be extra safe. Yesterday I took it out of the box and found that the handle had somehow fallen off on its own. There's absolutely no way to fix it (glue will just melt when the lid gets hot).

I contacted customer service asking if I could receive a replacement, and they told me I would have to pay for the return shipping to get an exchange. They couldn't even give me a shipping label! I'm not buying this cheap strainer again...Teavana, you've lost a customer!

Rusting after 5 uses

By Breck

from Dallas, TX

Comments about Teavana Cool Touch Tea Strainer:

Really like the idea and use of this, just has rust around the upper rim where it comes in contact with the lid. Now this does not hinder the use as the rust is in an area that does not touch the leaves or water. Just was disappointing to see.

bottom fell out

By Kant git enuf tee

from Warren PA

Comments about Teavana Cool Touch Tea Strainer:

I use this tea strainer every day and its bottom just fell out. Now it won't stay in and I have to purchase another tea strainer. I used it for my teapot every day. I bought it about 9 months ago.

overall, a nice tea infuser

By cs

from S.C.

See all my reviews

Comments about Teavana Cool Touch Tea Strainer:

this is a decent little tea infuser. it is in 3 parts: main body, rubber rim-guard, and saucer. the rim-guard seems a bit silly, but it is quite necessary and useful when you have a really hot cuppa steeping! it comes apart, for east rinsing.
I had some tea 'debris' seep through, but it wasn't too bad. easy to rinse out and reuse again and again.
overall, a good investment--I use it at least once a day.

Perfect design, easy to clean

By Livy

from Charleston, SC

Comments about Teavana Cool Touch Tea Strainer:

I adore this strainer. It's simple to use and easy to clean. I received the 16 oz. glass Perfectea maker as a gift but I still prefer to use the cool touch strainer. It sits flush on top my 8 oz. (and larger) mugs so so minimal heat loss during steeping.

Must have!

By Jen loves tea

from Milwaukee, WI

See all my reviews

Comments about Teavana Cool Touch Tea Strainer:

I use this tea strainer nearly every day for brewing a single cup of tea. It works great and is easy to clean as long as you do't wait too long to rinse it out. I recommend rinsing it right away, especially with smaller leaf teas. I've had mine for over a year and it is still in good shape.
