Product Description

Amazon.com

Try something out of the ordinary for your next cup of tea. This modern and stylish teastick holds just enough loose tea to brew a single cup of tea. Designed for Blomus by German firm Floz Design, the stick consists of a brushed stainless-steel tube perforated at one end with infusion holes, and a black plastic insert that slides out for filling with tea leaves. To use, simply insert the stick into a cup of hot water. Look for a wide range of stainless-steel tea accessories from Blomus to match the teastick, such as a tea caddy, sugar and creamer set, tea cups, and a serving tray.

Blomus is the brand name launched in 2001 for contemporary stainless-steel products by SKS-Design, a family-owned German design company now run by the family's fifth generation. Comprising more than 500 items for the kitchen, bath, bar, fireplace, office, and outdoor patio, Blomus products embody this philosophy: Good design is both simple to use and beautiful to look at. Most Blomus products are made in Germany. --Ann Bieri

It works really well, and was a very exciting gift for the recipient.

If they swapped out the spring for some sort of manual locking action for both open and closed position, they would have a good item.

It doesn't allow enough circulation or hold enough leaves, leaving each cup far too weak.

the concept is great.
but
i have my concerns...the inside is plastic. if you dont want to put plastic in hot water ( i dont) then move on to an old fashion tea ball.
theres also a metal spring inside the device. you cant see it; you also cant see it if it begins to rust.

you cant pack much tea in this either.. being that the tea expands when wet, i can only fill it half way, and am not able to make my teas strong enough.

hope this helps

Everything is great about this item except how well it brews tea. It doesn't allow enough circulation or hold enough leaves, leaving each cup far too weak. It's now collecting dust as I've gone back to my cuptop strainer and french press. Very disappointing for such a good idea. I'm sure a new updated version will arrive soon. Until then, this is useless.

I got this as a gift because everyone knows that I love tea...and as a gift for the tea afficionado/collector, it's fantastic because of it's uniqueness/design. However, as a tea infuser, it doesn't work as well as my cheapie stainless steel ball infusers.

pros:

--beautiful, modern design
--very portable & fun
--conversation piece
--works reasonably well in a pinch for very small leafed tea

cons:

--won't work for large, full leaf teas (won't do full leaf Sencha--my fave)
--is very tall, requires a tallish cup (I prefer english tea cups, where it won't stand up--but great in mugs)
--tea does not infuse 100%

But as a collectors item, I adore it! :)

Hope this helps!

The concept is great. It looks good, and it works great too... at the beginning. Unfortunately the materials used for the inner part deform after a while due to the use of hot water.

It is a convenient, nice looking piece of modern art that will do the job well enough but to a point.

Pros:
Cleaning is a snap.
The design is very modern.
Portability: It is small enough for you to carry with you in your purse. But I don't see many people traveling with a can of loose tea in their purse/messenger bag (so portability would hardly be the main concern).
The plastic is heat safe and doesn't add metallic taste to the tea.

Cons:
Filling it with tea is a struggle (snout is too narrow, need one hand to hold the infuser open and another to fill in the tea).
The holes are too small and only on 1 side so the tea doesn't defuse well (70%-80%). (If you like your tea mild this will not be a problem, If you, however; like your tea strong this is not for you.
Not practical for 'low rise' porcelain cups (classic english tea cup) infuser will not stand.

Some people are also concerned about the inner spring durability. Personally I do not worry about it as the spring is strong and well insolated from the part that does get wet.

One must consider his/her needs and other products other there. Compare to other infusers I give it 3* I like it but I don't love it.

My favorite part of the Teastick is its portability. And of course, clean up is a breeze. At the moment, I own 24 differant loose teas and 24 Yixing tea pots. At home I will have tea the more traditional way. But on the go...buy a Teastick.

I first discovered this tea strainer in Paris. I loved it so much - despite that it takes a longer time to steep - that I purchased one for my mother. It is most convenient and easy to clean.
