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 bought 2 infusers. One is exclusively used for tea. The other we use when whole herbs or spices are required in a recipe. Yesterday I needed 3 large bay leaves, 4 whole cloves and 10 peppercorns in a stew recipe. These all went into the infuser with room to spare. After the stew was cooked I simply picked out the infuser with tongs. After cooling, just unscrewed the infuser and dumped the used herbs. No fishing around for bay leaves or tying and untying muslin bags. Easy!
This is exactly what I have been looking for. I love that it twists apart and has strong threads that aren't likely to dall apart. I was initially looking at some tea balls that had a flat top that was held on by small projections that could easily fall off. With the full threads to hold the halves in place, this feels as though it will last longer. The holes are fairly small but do still allow some dusting of loose leaf tea through as you can see in the photo. However, I believe that adds to the whole experience. Overall, I would definitely recommend this to others!
I love this!!! I searched for a while trying to find something that would work for the loose leaf tea that I had just ordered and I saw plenty of negative reviews elsewhere. I decided to take a chance on this one when I read the reviews and I am glad that I did!!
It is easy to use, easy to clean, and I love the little tray to set it on when I remove it from my cup! You do get a few very tiny pieces that manage to escape, but as far as I am concerned that is to be expected in order to allow the water to move through and the tea to actually steep.
A bit bigger than necessary- takes up too much space in regular size mugs, but great for large mugs or teapots. The screw feature means that I’ve never had a issue with leaves falling out like I have with others. Easy to clean. Have had it about a year now and hasn’t gotten dingy
This is a great tea infuser. I love that it is rigid and not a soft metal mesh. It is easy to clean. The big size allows the tea leaves room to expand. It also screws together, so it locks the tea leaves inside.
I like that each half is fairly large so that you can put enough tea into only half of the ball and then easily screw on the other half. The chain is long enough to be used in a teapot. It's sturdy and fairly easy to screw the halves back together.
