cool design...so-so functionality,
This review is from: Blomus 63188 6-1/4-Inch Teastick (Kitchen)
I got this as a gift because everyone knows that I love tea...and as a gift for the tea afficionado/collector, it's fantastic because of it's uniqueness/design. However, as a tea infuser, it doesn't work as well as my cheapie stainless steel ball infusers.
--beautiful, modern design
--very portable & fun
--works reasonably well in a pinch for very small leafed tea
--won't work for large, full leaf teas (won't do full leaf Sencha--my fave)
--is very tall, requires a tallish cup (I prefer english tea cups, where it won't stand up--but great in mugs)
--tea does not infuse 100%
But as a collectors item, I adore it! :)
Hope this helps!
