The perfect cup, every time
With our ingenuiTEA teapot, brewing the perfect cup has never been so easy. After adding your leaves and water, the open body allows your leaves to expand fully, releasing the true flavor and aroma of the tea in a way that teabags or small in-mug infusers simply cannot provide. Once finished brewing, simply place it on top of nearly any mug, and let gravity do the rest! A release valve will allow the tea to flow through the integrated filter, preventing any debris from entering your cup. Lift the ingenuiTEA off, and the valve seals tight and stops any further drips! This 16oz. model is perfect for personal use, or for sharing with a friend (if you're feeling generous)! So why wait? The perfect cup is out there, just brew it.

IngenuiTEA is a brilliant - arguably the simplest - device for preparing loose tea. Unlike the 'French Press' teapots which crush and bruise the leaves, our teapot's ingenious design uses gravity, not force, to strain the leaves. The result is great taste with less effort. To filter, simply place the ingenuiTEA atop your cup. A valve at the bottom will open, allowing crystal-clear tea to flow, while a mesh filter retains the leaves and sediment. The clean-up is equally as easy as the teapot is dishwasher safe. Made in Taiwan using food-grade plastic. Available in 16 oz. as well as 32 oz. size that's ideal for brewing a pitcher of iced tea. Perfect for foodservice, restaurant and other professional industrial uses. Bulk pricing available through Adagio Wholesale.

Turns-out the new metal screen CAN be removed easily, and it makes a huge difference in being able to clean what is really a super tea maker (the best I've used!). This helps prevent different servings of tea flavors I make from influencing one another (like alternate cups of black tea and fruit tea).
Removing the screen housing the first time is a little more work than subsequent removals, but far from difficult. Start by filling the inside an inch or so with warm soapy water (this will provide a tiny bit of lubrication). Using your fingers, gently wiggle the center 'peg' of the screen housing - a tiny bit up and down, then left and right - while gently pulling upward. Presto, the screen housing will eventually come completely free.
If this doesn't work right out of the box, try making tea several times. The repetitive heating and cooling plus some of the natural oils will likely make it a bit easier to undertake the method above with success.
Re-attaching the screen housing is as easy as gently wiggling the filter housing back into the bottom. I found it doesn't need to be fully pushed down all the way to the bottom to work just fine, and this makes it a bit easier to remove again (which I do every time now before quickly washing).
I've attached 3 pictures to see what the screen housing looks like removed.
Update December 2012:
We still use this unit all the time and it has held up quite well. One note is that the coaster in the video no longer comes with the unit. We misplaced it a long time ago anyway.
I'm giving it 5 stars for ease of use and cleaning and my overall product satisfaction.
This infusion mug, if you will, really is an ingenious invention. It's gravity controlled, so there's no need to stopper it up or try to overcomplicate things. Just put your desired amount of loose tea in the cup, pour over the piping hot water, make sure to lower the lid, and allow it to steep for the recommended amount of time. When the steeping time is up, rest the base of the Ingenuitea on top of the mouth of your mug or cup and let gravity do the rest. The valve will be release when you place the base over the mouth of the cup (make sure it fits and if it doesn't, make sure you're holding on to it) and the hot tea will pour right out. It's a controlled stream from the center of the cup, so you shouldn't get sprayed unless you're doing it wrong.
The first time I used this, I thought that I might need to pull the bottom part down so that it would secure the "valve" inside the cup...this was before I realized that it worked from gravity. I didn't look up directions, I just washed it and put it to use. Well, instead of pulling, I pushed it and release the piping hot water all over my arm. I won't make that mistake again! Don't do what I did! Let gravity do it's thing! :)
Don't put this baby in the dishwasher. It's very easy to hand wash. If you ever need to, you can gently pop out the strainer at the base of the mug and hand wash that. I haven't had to do that yet, but I can see where finer tea leaves might get hung up in the sieve.
Above all, enjoy this as often as possible! If you're a tea drinker, you know how great the benefits of tea are! If you're not a tea drinker, get on the wagon! It's good stuff!
