Product Description

Product Description

Say goodbye to tea bags and enjoy your perfect cup of tea in style with the stainless steel YOYO tea strainer. Freely swirling tea leaves will release their full potential, like in a Bodum tea pot but on a smaller scale. With a length of 11.7 cm (4.6 inch), it fits into all Bodum mugs. The lid is dual purpose. If put upside-down onto the strainer it keeps the water warm while the tea is brewing, if flipped after the brewing it can be used as a saucer for the tea infuser. The hole on top of the tea infuser allows for easy storage by just hanging it up. All parts are dishwasher safe.

This stainless-steel infuser is ideal for the tea drinker who loves to make one perfect cup at a time. With flanges that fit over any standard size mug or cup, the infuser stays put when hot water is added and holds loose tea leaves that won’t escape through the network of minute holes. The stainless-steel lid keeps heat in during brewing, and doubles as a drip-catching trivet under the infuser when done. Measuring 3-1/4 by 2-1/4 inches, with a flange span of 4 inches, the infuser can be washed either by hand or in the dishwasher. --Ann Bieri

Fool me twice shame on me.

Some very small particles do slip through the holes, but I think such small particles would slip through all filters except for a fine tea bag.

Excellent for whole leaf loose tea.

I wanted an infuser that would allow me to make a single mug of loose leaf tea at home. This item pretty much works as expected. But the holes in the side of the infuser are rather large--about 1mm. For whole leaf loose teas, that is not a problem. But for many other teas, it allows quite a bit of tea through.

For example, when I make sencha or bancha green tea, I end up with a lot of sediment at the bottom of my mug. Also, rooibos tea is small enough to slip through the holes. And a few of the rooibos tea particles will actually get stuck in the holes, which becomes a slight hassle when cleaning the unit.

I use this unit at home but at work I have a different tea maker which works better. It has a finer mesh screen so very little tea gets through. On Amazon, it is ASIN # B0000VLMQK, but is not currently available. However, the same item can be found at Teavana as "2 cup perfect teamaker" or at Adagio Teas as "ingenuiTEA", and sells for less than $20.

I've discovered if I wet the infuser just before adding the tea the smaller particles expand and less tea "dust" falls through. This infuser is easy to clean and has a nice appearance. It can be used in either a single cup or in any teapot (of course you need to adjust the quantity of tea leaves).

Several other reviewers have complained about fine tea being washed through the infuser and into your mug. I had the same experience until I figured out this trick. If you pour your water into the infuser, it washes the fine leaves through the screen. Instead, put your hot water in the mug FIRST. Then put the infuser with the tea into the mug. This works very well, with only a few stray leaves passing through.

Amazon also sells this with a matching mug for just a few dollars more. Consider buying the set.

Flawless "tea-steeping" device. Probability of unplanned release of leaves into liquid medium during normal steeping processes is approximately zero, in contrast to failure-prone clasp of device "tea ball." High reliability values are obtained through the omission of moving parts and fabrication from corrosion-resistant metal, therefore it is probable that optimal item operation will persist beyond the cessation of original purchaser's biological functions. Omitting aesthetic considerations, the device possesses obvious heirloom suitability.

This revolutionized, streamlined, and improved my tea options: no more paper waste, paper bleaching, and packaging from teabags (not to mention poor flavor), and no more need to make a pot if I want only a cup and vice versa: this infuser makes a whole pot as easily as a single cup, with no mess or fuss.

It also enables me to make decaf tea from the same leaves, without worrying about chemical processes, because caffeine is very water-soluble, so most of the caffeine goes into the first batch of tea, and if you don't oversteep, there will be enough flavor left for a second cup or pot! So a comforting evening cuppa without it keeping me up all night, from the same leaves. Frugal, healthy, and no waste. This has really made it possible to make excellent tea with such ease, that I look forward to it daily, instead of wrestling with tea bags, tea balls, infusers and strainers, and always having a mess on my hands with the leaves. Best of all, after using my leaves twice, once for the morning lift, and once for the afternoon or evening lull, a light tap sends the used leaves over my hydrangeas to keep them blue, or else into the composter for next year's fertilizer.

Also makes coffee and herbal with ease. In fact one reason I wanted this was to enjoy roship tea, raspberry leaf tea, and other teas from herbs and flowers I already grow. No more dependence on expensive boxes of paper-and-cardboard-packaged commercial herbal blends! This infuser makes all of it easy. I can literally keep myself in yummy healthy hot beverages year round without buying a thing! Rosehips, mint, anise seed, raspberry leaf, and much more, all organic and free for the plucking in the garden.

This item is also great to simplify life for the casual or occasional coffee drinker.

I bought some loose teas online and needed a infuser. I bought this one and the holes are too large for tea that is loose and cut up. When you add the water, the tea goes through the little holes and you are left with a cup full of tea pieces. I recommend any of the kind that looks like a coffee-mesh type filter. Kind of gold in color. I don't remember the name, but that is the kind I now use as thye work the best. Steel/aluminium, whatever it is, cannot work without a disposable filter.

I was looking for a stainless steel infuser for loose tea. This is perfect, fits nicely
inside a 10-16 ounce mug, and it has no plastic parts. It is made in China
so I wonder about purity of materials, but otherwise it's great. I like eliminating all the
extra paper, string etc with bagged tea. It is thin metal and can dent slightly, but that's
not a problem and they can be straightened out easily. Also, very fine tea can escape a
bit, but again, no big deal to me. Overall, I'm very pleased with this and after much looking,
this was the only all metal infuser that I could find.
