You load the guy with tea by popping him open -- there are a couple metal tabs which hold two halves shut. This is a slightly fiddly process, and can lead to a few stray tea leaves on the counter. Also, when closed, some tea leaves can escape through the cracks in the side, so if you're a purist about not getting any leaves in the tea you drink (and/or you tend to drink very finely ground tea) that could be a problem.
I love it, and all the people I've shown think it's great. His arms will extend to fit most cup sizes, and he seals the tea in very well. And Teabot (as I like to call it) is super easy to clean; some infusers make it really difficult to get out all of the leaves, but this one opens all the way up and it's no problem.
This infuser is fun, effective, and has a nice little presence in the kitchen when he's not in use. I definitely would recommend this product.
the infusers are pretty small, about two inches high or so, and are very lightweight. they open well enough, and have plenty of space for the loose tea to fit inside. after i placed the tea inside, i went to snap it shut, and it didn't want to close properly without a little finessing. when i closed it, bits of loose tea kind of flew out. not a big deal, but not ideal either.
however, it kind of sealed the deal when i put the little guy into a cup of hot water: bits of loose tea just kept coming out of the holes. this is a deal breaker, as i don't love drinking in hard bits of tea-makings.
it is a real disappointment, as i loved how this infuser looked (he reminded me of the big daddies in bioshock), and he even came with his own little tray.
the sad part is i couldn't in good faith recommend this to anyone. it just lets far too much loose tea out in the brewing process. back to disposable bags it is.
It is difficult to fill the tube with tea unless it's scoped with the tube and even then it scoops poorly especially when wet. The narrow space doesn't allow the leaves to properly expand and the tube broke at the top row of slots after first use. I can't imagine how difficult emptying the wet leaves would have been.
I received this item as a gift.
Overall a nice fun product.
If you worry about tea leaves in your cup buy a supertight tea ball with miniscule holes or just don't drink tea.

Arrived as expected. The clamp that holds the two parts is somewhat flimsy. Can open and let tea leaves out, so do not over pack the amount of teaPublished 3 days ago by J

I love this tea infuser. It's cute and easy to use. Some cons: some of the loose tea can escape and the hinge seems a little loose/flimsy to me. But overall very nice!Published 4 days ago by Merci_Me
My favorite infuser. More prone to spilling a few leaves (very few) than silicone ones, but it's just so cool. It also fits every mug/cup I have. Read morePublished 12 days ago by Revieweiver
