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

I've intentionally placed in the order above - this an order of my preferences.
#1 is just perfect - it fits Bodum 10oz and 15oz tea mugs. It is too long for 15oz Bodum Latte Mug, but it will be just standing instead of hanging. It fits pretty much every mug in my home and my office and any other mug I can foresee. My only wish - that it would be a little bit thicker.
#2 is most universal due it's smaller size. Because of it's compactness it will fit everywhere and can be used under my coffee maker, which I use for a tea in the office. The only problem I can see - it might be too small to make larger amount of tea.
#3 is most beautiful but least universal item. It's made in a first place for a FORLIFE large round teapot. The original teapot basket has the same size, but slightly different construction - thicker walls, larger holes. This item also being sold with matching mug, which I did not by. You might be lucky to find such a mug on your own. Why important match? - This items has nothing to hold it on the mug as #1 and #2, so it MUST fit snugly into the mug. I.e it will fit perfectly into standard 12oz mug, acceptably into standard 8oz mug and Bodum 10oz mug, no good for Bodum 15 oz (Tea or Latte)
I do not see any reason not to buy all of them, as i did.
