IngenuiTEA is a brilliant - arguably the simplest - device for preparing loose tea. Unlike the 'French Press' teaots 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.

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!
It may be good as an infuser, but if I can't clean it, it is just a disgusting piece of junk and a waste of money. I'm looking for something better
Update: found a YouTube video on how to disassemble. I had to watch it a few times to catch how he was getting the filter out. Instead of pulling or turning, you push the center part to the side. Once it is out, it can be cleaned easily.
The ONLY point off, is it's a pain to clean out. The leaves make a mess, and get stuck on the grate and it is difficult to get hands in there to get it clean. It also is difficult to get it out without washing tea down the drain. I don't want tea clumps going down the drain. Outside of that one issue? Perfect.

Forgot to update this, but I changed to using paper tea bags that I now use in this. It is 100% perfect. I still absolutely love this thing. I usually leave it at the office because a nice cup of team is sometimes a life saver. Doesn't hold a ton, but I can always make more. So still loving it. :)
I use the tea blends they sell on their site and some mugs I bought at Walmart that fit this pot perfectly. The tea blends they sell on their site are fantastic. The sampler size they have is a really good, low cost, way to try out new teas as well.
Also, sign up for their newsletter to get nice tea offers. They dont bombard you with garbage everyday or anything like that.
Summary: Great product, I recommend it to everyone I know who drinks tea.
