Update December 2012:
We still use this unit all the time and it has held up quite well. One note is that the coaster in the video no longer comes with the unit. We misplaced it a long time ago anyway.
However, I'm just going to note a couple of things that have made this teapot a little "bitter" for me.
First, I have three of them now. All of them leak a few drops from time to time. It's a minor thing, but you do have be cognizant of what and where you sit them during and after brewing. The tea can discolor some counter tops.
Over time, the tea tends to accumulate and discolor the plastic. Additionally, it begins to slowly clog the fine screen at the bottom that serves to filter the tea. This can be delayed by cleaning the teapot after every brewing, but it will still eventually happen. Particularly if you brew a lot of tea. You'll notice that the teas (especially fine greens) begin to drain slower. The teapot will also start retaining the last bit of tea that sits between the bottom of screen and the valve. This is because the wet tea forms a hermetic seal and the air pressure keeps that last bit of tea from draining. You have to move the teapot around a bit to get it out. Annoying, but not really a huge deal.
Sadly, there is no easy way (that I've found) to clean this screen. I've tried brushes of various compositions, as well as the green kitchen "scrubbies". I've also tried soaking in a variety of liquids, like hot soapy water and vinegar. Too much physical abrasion will damage the screen, because it's rather fragile. If you have any effective ways of cleaning yours, please leave a comment, I'd love to hear it.Read more ›
After talking with other friends, it seems like the same thing happened to them...This item would be great if it had a longer life expectancy.
But there's one serious design flaw...well, for me, at least. The release for the drain valve is a platform that moves upward and opens the valve when you set the teamaker on a cup to drain it. Most of the tea drains directly down from the valve, but a certain amount of it splashes up onto the top of the platform that operates the valve. After several months of daily use, those splashes accumulate, the accumulation gets pretty disgusting--especially if you brew a lot of dark teas. (I do.)
The problem is that the top surface of the platform is underneath the bottom of the infusion chamber, and there's no way to get to that surface to clean it. I've tried snaking all kinds of things through the small openings in the bottom of the drain valve platform in an attempt to scrub the accumulated crud out of there, and it's nearly impossible to get to most of it, and completely impossible to get to all of it. And there's no access from the top side because the bottom of the infusion chamber is in the way, and the valve opening is way too small to provide any access.
The result is that the teamaker, which initially is perfectly transparent and very attractive, eventually becomes a crud-infested mess in those inaccessible areas at the bottom. The overall design concept of the IngenuiTea is great. But for cleaning purposes, it was very poorly thought out.Read more ›

Great tea infuser. No leaks (as other reviewers have complained about). Use it multiple times a week for 6 weeks now.Published 18 hours ago by Melissa Hale
This way, I can brew single-serve glasses of tea at work, while conserving the pouches I buy (since I can break them open and pour them in as loose leaves). Read morePublished 1 day ago by Valiere
