Style Name: MISTER TEA Verified Purchase
This product works out great for a party type exchange of gifts. It is a good conversation piece and at the same time works and is a quick little handy item if you are drinking Tea by yourself. As others have stated, some of the leaves slip through into the tea but that is because of the size of the leaves are too small.

I've been drinking sweetened teas lately and recently ordered this brand; Chocolate Monkey Loose Leaf Tea 4 oz. + FREE Pumpkin Spice Chai 4 oz.. Not sure if it is because it is a blend or because it is a "premium" brand but I don't have any issues with anything getting through, which I cannot say about all the teas in my cupboard.

All you need to do with this little guy is fill his little silicone pants with loose leaf tea, perch him in your cup and let him do the rest! Silicone leaves no aftertaste, so this little guy really perfect as long as you use decent size leaves.

Style Name: MANATEA Verified Purchase
I love the way my manatee looks; I love the very concept, and I love the way she perches on the rim of my teacup, with her loose tea-laden nether regions soaking in the hot water, infusing the teacup with...well, with very little actual tea.

The holes in her silicon trunk are just not holey enough to allow for proper circulation. The only thing that comes close to the disappointed look on my face when I sip what I am hoping will be a freshly brewed cuppa, and taste instead a week mug of almost-nothing (hey, did I mistakenly order the homeopathic tea?), is the forlorn expression on the manatea herself. I think she knows what's going on. She is a tea infuser that does not infuse; she is forlorn, bereft of purpose, just another pretty (if bewhiskered) face.

Style Name: MISTER TEA Verified Purchase
I really, really, really wanted to love this. And I do, as do my children. Fred is absolutely adorable - what's not to love? Well, the fact that Fred vomits tea into your water/milk is a pretty big letdown. I have to strain rooibos through a metal tea infuser to remove all the debris before I can enjoy my beverage. I guess we shall return him.

UPDATE: We decided to keep Fred, since my kids love him so much. I still stand by my original review, even though a few folks seem to have gotten their panties in a bunch. I steeped tea in this infuser. The tea came through the holes. It's pretty simple. I usually use a metal mesh steeper for rooibos, but wanted something that didn't affect the taste. Fred wasn't the solution, unfortunately. However, even with larger leaf teas, some debris still manages to get through the holes in Fred. Some sink to the bottom, others float round in the tea. It's kind of annoying.

Style Name: MANATEA Verified Purchase
This little guy is -too- adorable. While squishier and a bit less physically detailed than they look online (the carvings aren't quite as deep, but are still precious) this wee manatee holds a TON of tea, and I love it to pieces. I think the only drawback is that he doesn't steep quite as well/quickly as metal infusers, as the little fins' situation don't let him hang quite as far down into the cup as he needs to to get your tea reeaaally well brewed. But since it's silicone, you can either let him hang on to your cup by just one flipper, or do what I do, and (since the silicone doesn't conduct heat like metal does) hold him by his snoot and "stir" him around in the cup, to increase brewing speed/intensity. Otherwise, for a primarily ornamental tea infuser, he's a gem. ^_^

I love this, he is super cute. Great addition to my tea infuser collection. The body is HUGE on this guy and fits a good amount of tea. Perfect for large-medium leaf teas.

Style Name: DEEP TEA DIVER Verified Purchase
It was kind of expensive but it was so cute I had to get it. I was a bit surprised by how small it is since there was no dimensions listed under the info about the product. It is meant for one cup of tea and I was looking for something for a pot of tea. I suppose it would do well for a single serving pot of tea but I usually brew 4 cups because I drink a lot! Even though its small a lot of tea fits in there; but don't over fill or the tea leaves wont have enough room to fully expand. Maybe its because its so cute but I could swear my tea tastes better when using the diver as opposed to the regular metal mesh ball. I wish there was a way to prevent this but even this diver is subject to tea stains. So I suspect it'll be brownish soon. Oh, also the opening is at the feet. Be very careful about where you set them to dry. I air dry mine in the little basket in the dishwasher but once his little feet somehow slipped and disappeared into the garbage disposal for almost a week! I was devastated, and I wasn't looking forward to buying another one. Thankfully I found out, so just beware because its clear and tiny so it can easily be lost.

Style Name: MISTER TEA Verified Purchase
I loved this as soon as I saw it online and bought it for my mom for Christmas. Somehow, turning every cup of tea into a hot tub makes it that much better to drink. The arms are a little flexible, so it fits pretty much all cup sizes and the pants can be turned inside out with ease for quick cleaning. Overall, it's a great little addition to a morning cup of tea and gives you an extra reason to smile

Style Name: DEEP TEA DIVER
Such a cute little guy but really useless. I received this as part of my christmas present and I made sure to use a nice dark herbal tea so it would really show up. Nothing comes out of the holes! It's basically a colored scuba dude in a class of clear water. I can't even squeeze the tea out because the bottom will pop open. Don't waste your money on this. He also just floats on top of the water. I'm really disappointed
