Product Description

Size: 16-ounce

IngenuiTEA is a brilliant - arguably the simplest - device for preparing loose tea. Unlike the 'French Press' teaots which crush and bruise the leaves, our teapot's ingenious design uses gravity, not force, to strain the leaves. The result is great taste with less effort. To filter, simply place the ingenuiTEA atop your cup. A valve at the bottom will open, allowing crystal-clear tea to flow, while a mesh filter retains the leaves and sediment. The clean-up is equally as easy as the teapot is dishwasher safe. Made in Taiwan using food-grade plastic. Available in 16 oz. as well as 32 oz. size that's ideal for brewing a pitcher of iced tea. Perfect for foodservice, restaurant and other professional industrial uses. Bulk pricing available through Adagio Wholesale.

My wife bought one of these when we were vacationing in Eureka Springs a year ago, and I thought it was another gizmo to add to the cupboard. Was I wrong. I started using it more and more, mostly for green tea, and thought it would be good to have one for work as well. So I ordered one from Cooking.com and use it all the time. I just put the tea leaves in the container, add hot water, let it sit for 5 minutes, then set it on top of my cup. The valve on the bottom opens up and the tea pours into the cup, with out the leaves (with the green tea I buy from China, the leaves are full leaves, and I can get another 2 cups out of it, so refilling is easy). The nice thing is, I can use it for coffee as well as black tea. The coffee, especially if you grind your own, tastes so much better. To clean, I just invert in a trash can, and rinse out what's left.

A quick demonstration of the Ingenuitea teapot. We like the ease of use of this product and especially how easy it is to clean. We tend to not use tea bags and prefer loose leaf tea. This little infuser has us drinking tea more frequently. Watch how easy it is to make a nice cup of tea:

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.

I got a pot of tea at a cafe recently and they served it up in an Ingenuitea. Within about 5 seconds, I realized this was the perfect way to make tea - or coffee, actually, and that this is how tea should be made. If you like loose tea and tea balls are awkward - not to mention hot to take out, etc. - the Ingenuitea is the BEST. No drip, no mess, no nothin'... simply tea. Ingenious, indeed!

I just purchased one of these after using a friend's, and I love it. This is the perfect way to make loose leaf tea for one. Unlike with tea balls or spoon-size infusers, the leaves have plenty of room to unfurl as the tea steeps and there's no clasp to come undone. Unlike with basket infusers, there's no dripping or mess when it's time to remove the leaves. You simply get perfectly brewed tea with no mess every time. I can't recommend this enough.

I got this as a gift, over two years ago. I drink a lot of tea and it has been a really nice, efficient and exceedingly easy way to brew tea. Reading through the Amazon reviews, anyone will be able to find out what a neat device this is.

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.

I received one of these for a birthday present and have used it every day since! For those who have never experienced the flavor of loose leaf teas, you don't know what you're missing! The only problem I have is making that second cup of tea by reusing the same tea leaves. The leaves have a tendency to get stuck in the valve on the bottom and I occasionally have come back to dispense my tea into a cup and have found my tea all over my countertop! I have found that as long as I don't reuse the tea leaves, this product is perfect!!

When i first got my teapot over a year ago, i was so happy with it that i bought it for all my fellow tea lovers. However, after about 9 months of use, i noticed that i would come back to puddles of tea on my table top. I looked online and tried all the tricks other users had done such as soaking, using a hair dryer, etc. Nothing worked! There were also no visible leaves that blocked the stopper.

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.

I loved this device for about the first 6 months of using it. I still love the way it works. I have absolutely no problem with the way it brews any of my teas--black, green, oolong, white, pu-erh--it handles them all. I guess there might be a problem reaching inside to remove the filter (for cleaning) for folks with large hands, but I have hands that are probably average in size, and I can get in there without too much trouble.

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.
