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.
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.
It's adorable and functional.
It's definitely not like your typical tea steeps/infusers - it takes a bit of effort to take it apart, fill it then put it back together without making a mess.
If you use smaller tea fibers, like needles green or more powder-like tea, the holes are a bit wider than normal so expect some "escapees."
I have a habit of drinking my tea with the infuser still in it. This rates higher in that area because it doesn't move as much as the metal infusers. The little guy stays in place.
I wish his silly little face was more defined.
It's not the best infuser but it's not the worst - to be honest, I can't see how you can really eff up a tea infuser.
That being said, I don't regret purchasing him, and I still use him regularly. I just can't use him as much as I would like, and have to keep around an uninteresting but functional metal infuser.
