To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
(update) It's not stained with tea, it's rusted. It did the job for a few months, but it's cheap. Will be purchasing a different tea infuser.
(old review) I would probably repurchase this. It's inexpensive and easy to use. It's not so easy to clean. I've found that it's stained with tea after a few weeks and I cant get the stain out. C'est la vie. Only four stars because the two halves of the tea ball sometimes inexplicably become misaligned and I have to straighten them out so the tea doesn't fall out in the pot.
Rust spots after hand washing twice. Hard to clean, since you have to hold it open to get anything out. Doesn’t stay shut unless there’s absolutely nothing on the rim, so you end up with little tea leaves in your drink. Just not impressed.
