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.
I like that the basket is roomy. It makes it easy to mix the tea leaves as it steeps. My only complaint is that some small tea leaf particles get through the filter and settle at the bottom of my tea cup.
I like the design and functionality of this tea brewer but am disappointed that the seam and cap are rusting after only 2 months. I use it once a day and wash and drain it in a dish drainer immediately after use to allow it to air dry. I notice rusting happens with poor quality steel so will be trying another brand.
I specifically asked a question before ordering and was told this would gif INSIDE a 6” tea pot. It will NOT. I understand it’s meant to sit above the tea pot but then the lid can not go on. The problem in this is the temperature of the tea is too cool and the loose tea can not reach the depth of the water in a real tea pot with a spout. This would only work in a very large tea kettle but not a porcelain tea pot. Whoever answered my question obviously doesn’t know the difference. That said, it’s a nice material and quiet large. It would hold enough loose tea for at least 2 gallons of tea. Perhaps if you’re making it for a large party and place it inside a gallon jar it would work ok.
