Product Description

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.

A quick demonstration of the Ingenuitea teapot. We like the ease of use of this product and especially how easy it is to clean. We tend to not use tea bags and prefer loose leaf tea. This little infuser has us drinking tea more frequently. Watch how easy it is to make a nice cup of tea:

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.

My wife bought one of these when we were vacationing in Eureka Springs a year ago, and I thought it was another gizmo to add to the cupboard. Was I wrong. I started using it more and more, mostly for green tea, and thought it would be good to have one for work as well. So I ordered one from Cooking.com and use it all the time. I just put the tea leaves in the container, add hot water, let it sit for 5 minutes, then set it on top of my cup. The valve on the bottom opens up and the tea pours into the cup, with out the leaves (with the green tea I buy from China, the leaves are full leaves, and I can get another 2 cups out of it, so refilling is easy). The nice thing is, I can use it for coffee as well as black tea. The coffee, especially if you grind your own, tastes so much better. To clean, I just invert in a trash can, and rinse out what's left.

I got this as a gift, over two years ago. I drink a lot of tea and it has been a really nice, efficient and exceedingly easy way to brew tea. Reading through the Amazon reviews, anyone will be able to find out what a neat device this is.

However, I'm just going to note a couple of things that have made this teapot a little "bitter" for me.

First, I have three of them now. All of them leak a few drops from time to time. It's a minor thing, but you do have be cognizant of what and where you sit them during and after brewing. The tea can discolor some counter tops.

Over time, the tea tends to accumulate and discolor the plastic. Additionally, it begins to slowly clog the fine screen at the bottom that serves to filter the tea. This can be delayed by cleaning the teapot after every brewing, but it will still eventually happen. Particularly if you brew a lot of tea. You'll notice that the teas (especially fine greens) begin to drain slower. The teapot will also start retaining the last bit of tea that sits between the bottom of screen and the valve. This is because the wet tea forms a hermetic seal and the air pressure keeps that last bit of tea from draining. You have to move the teapot around a bit to get it out. Annoying, but not really a huge deal.

Sadly, there is no easy way (that I've found) to clean this screen. I've tried brushes of various compositions, as well as the green kitchen "scrubbies". I've also tried soaking in a variety of liquids, like hot soapy water and vinegar. Too much physical abrasion will damage the screen, because it's rather fragile. If you have any effective ways of cleaning yours, please leave a comment, I'd love to hear it.

I got a pot of tea at a cafe recently and they served it up in an Ingenuitea. Within about 5 seconds, I realized this was the perfect way to make tea - or coffee, actually, and that this is how tea should be made. If you like loose tea and tea balls are awkward - not to mention hot to take out, etc. - the Ingenuitea is the BEST. No drip, no mess, no nothin'... simply tea. Ingenious, indeed!

I just purchased one of these after using a friend's, and I love it. This is the perfect way to make loose leaf tea for one. Unlike with tea balls or spoon-size infusers, the leaves have plenty of room to unfurl as the tea steeps and there's no clasp to come undone. Unlike with basket infusers, there's no dripping or mess when it's time to remove the leaves. You simply get perfectly brewed tea with no mess every time. I can't recommend this enough.

I received one of these for a birthday present and have used it every day since! For those who have never experienced the flavor of loose leaf teas, you don't know what you're missing! The only problem I have is making that second cup of tea by reusing the same tea leaves. The leaves have a tendency to get stuck in the valve on the bottom and I occasionally have come back to dispense my tea into a cup and have found my tea all over my countertop! I have found that as long as I don't reuse the tea leaves, this product is perfect!!

When i first got my teapot over a year ago, i was so happy with it that i bought it for all my fellow tea lovers. However, after about 9 months of use, i noticed that i would come back to puddles of tea on my table top. I looked online and tried all the tricks other users had done such as soaking, using a hair dryer, etc. Nothing worked! There were also no visible leaves that blocked the stopper.

After talking with other friends, it seems like the same thing happened to them...This item would be great if it had a longer life expectancy.

I was a little worried when I bought this because of some of the negative reviews I've read, but I am very happy with this purchase.

The strainer at the bottom is tightly fit and I have never had an issue with it floating up or coming loose. In fact, at first I thought it was permanently attached. Just make sure that when you put it back after cleaning it that you push it in all the way. Once it gets filthy beyond repair, a replacement filter can be bought from Adagio's website for $3.

It is VERY easy to clean and it certainly does not take several minutes just to get the tea out. To dump out the tea I turn it up side down over my trash can and use a spoon to help get most of it out. Then I use water to rinse out whatever tea residue is left.

The lid IS detachable. Just open the lid and pull back at the hinge to remove it. All of the parts of the Ingenuitea can be detached which makes cleaning it really easy. Just be careful when taking it apart. To remove the bottom part I like to remove the strainer and then push the white rubber bit down until the bottom comes off. When you put it back you should see that there are little nubs that you need to align with the body. It is small so if you have big hands you may want to consider buying something else as it will probably be a bit difficult to remove the strainer since you need to stick your hand in there and pull it out.

It is made out of plastic so it will stain. To get rid of the stains without using nasty chemicals, I suggest soaking it in lemonade. I think it's the acid from the lemon juice that cleans the stains.

Also, the smell of the last tea you brewed does linger (I hand wash it, I'm not sure if it's the same if you run it through the dishwasher).
