These simple strainers allow loose tea to be as easy to prepare as tea bags. The cylindrical strainers have very fine perforations -- much finer than typical cup shaped strainers -- and have rubber coated handles that keep the strainers suspended in the cup or pot. They are excellent for one cup of tea or a whole pot. It just depends on how much loose tea you put in. The best part -- they are very easy to clean. The used tea leaves shake out of the strainer with only a few leaves clinging to the metal wall. A quick swipe with a finger clears it all and quick rinse in running water and the strainer is ready for re-use. It has encouraged me to try to discover a whole new world of flavorful teas so much better than mundane bagged teas.
I now use this product everyday. An incredibly simple and elegant solution to a need for convenient loose leaf tea brewing in my mug at work. The rubber covers for the arms of the basket do a good job of keeping it in place on the mug, and the removable cap becomes a convenient place to place the basket when you've removed it from your mug to enjoy your tea. Easy to rinse and clean. Convenient and affordable. I really could not ask for anything more from this product.
These were an excellent purchase. I love the lids. They work great for keeping in the heat while steeping and then as a coaster afterwards while you wait for the tea to dry out before cleaning. No wet/messy counters :)
