Tea particles escape

      Comments about Teavana Perfect Tea Ball:

      The lid doesn't seal tight enough. If you have finely ground tea (like yerba mate), tea particles will come out into the mug.

      Great "Teabag" without the Issues

      By Joe the Plumber

      from Tampa, FL

      Comments about Teavana Perfect Tea Ball:

      It is a great alternative to a teabag that allows the flavors to be enhanced and allows your tea to be put in just the way you want! The infuser is a little hard to put back on, but that's okay because it's easy to take off (you twist it on and off because it locks in, which is wonderful.) I just wish that it cleaned better, but I am being a little anal on that. Almost perfect!

      Can't get much better than this!

      By OrinjNanu

      from Columbus, OH

      Comments about Teavana Perfect Tea Ball:

      By far the best tea infuser I've purchased. I see a lot of complaints about the lid's holes being too large, but a simple fix is lower the ball slower if the water will go over the top. Others say the cup's holes are too small, just swish it around a bit. I never had any issue putting the lid on or taking it off, I've accepted the fact that it will not lock on 100%, but that doesn't mean it's not secure. I have had the best brewed tea since I got this. my only question is whether or not it's dishwasher safe.

      Finally, the Perfect Infuser!

      By YesImPicky

      from Lexington, Ky

      Comments about Teavana Perfect Tea Ball:

      I've tried several different infusers, and since the blend I use is very fine/small leaves, I continually experienced a layer of sediment floating through the infuser holes into my tea. This Ball absolutely eliminated that -- 100%. It's so tall that the very top of the ball, which does have larger holes than the sides--is above the water (I use it to brew single cups, not a teapot). The base sits solidly in the bottom of your cup. I experience a strong, deep brew within minutes with NO sediment. It's large enough to hold enough tea for a pot if that's your preference, but is still quite handy for a single cup.
      I'm sold -- all my other infusers will be stashed away for company or anyone who wants them...

      If it is hard to open, it can't be useful.

      Tea particles come out the top

      By Cicero

      from America

      Comments about Teavana Perfect Tea Ball:

      At first it is just great but when you immerse it in hot water, tea parcels then come out the top holes which are much larger than the bottom holes. Big mistake. It could have worked well.

      Ok, not great

      By Mackenzie

      from Minneapolis, MN

      Comments about Teavana Perfect Tea Ball:

      The strainer on the cup part is great but the lid has wider holes on it and the tea escapes through the lid. If the lid had the same small holes, it would be great, but it does not, and therefore, it is meh.

      Not as Functional

      By Teaologist

      from San Diego, CA

      See all my reviews

      Verified Reviewer

      Comments about Teavana Perfect Tea Ball:

      First off, the material of this tea ball is made out of high quality stainless steel, so it will last forever if you take good care of it. Secondly, the tea ball is actually huge, so a taller tea mug should be used or tea pot of your choice.

      Unfortunately, the holes are absolutely so tiny that it takes forever for the tea to steep. Yes, majority of the tea particles won't escape. But no matter how much you leave that tea ball in there, you will not receive any progress. Also, if you happen to hand wash it, it's difficult, especially if you have some tea leaves stuck between the holes.

      For the price, I wouldn't buy it. I just have a difficult time trying to use it. I honestly am better off using a tea infuser or French press.

      I haven't used this yet because I can't get the top off. It's ridiculously I'm on my way back to the store!
