Firstly, at 12 ounces you will definitely get your tea thirst satisfied. But the #1 reason I think this is the the mug to buy is it was pretty much the only one I saw on Amazon that was microwavable. So everything can be done in one cup. No transferring of water required. It's double walled so even at the boiling point you can hold the cup. The outside will be warm but not hot.
The brewing basket will drop into the water via the lever on the side of the cup lid. Once steeping is done just raise the basket by reversing the lever so as not to over steep. The basket construction is made of very fine steel mesh and plastic. The mesh should hold in nearly all types of loose tea. I used a very fine tea and there were only trace amounts that got through. So small they were drinkable bits.
The basket will hold a good 2-3 spoonfuls of tea so you should be able to get your preferred amount in.

This mug does keep the water hot. I actually had to remove the lid in order for it to cool enough for me to drink. Even then I had to wait about 11 or so min for it to no longer be too hot for me. This is great if you don't plan to savor your tea right after steeping, but a draw back if you want it right now, especially if you're on the go and can't practically remove the lid to speed up cooling. Another plus or minus depending on your POV is the cover for the drink spout (the part you drink from) It's VERY tight! I had to pry it open the first time I opened it. After that I figured how to get my fingers up under the cover's rim and pull it up without breaking my nails. So on the one had, it's definite assurance of no spills, but an inconvenience for trying to get this open, especially trying one-handed, not sure that can even be done. And I definitely wouldn't suggest trying while driving!

I bought 3 items from Amazon to do a side-by-side comparison: this Aladdin brand mug, the Bodum coffee and tea transparent press, and the Tramolina tea travel mug.

This particular item has some great advantages: overall cool looking, transparent container that makes the tea look good, the dip and steep idea with a flip lever is very very clever and is probably one of the best ways to do it...prevents teas from over-steeping and tasting bad.

Cons: (1) Transparent containers will never retain heat as well as their metal counterparts, if you want your tea very hot for extended periods of time, this wont work. (2) The infuser basket clip is not the easiest to open, and is not easy to clean thoroughly. (3) The small metal Y frame on which this basket is held in place looks flimsy, but I haven't used it for an extended period of time to give a complete review on that. (4) The biggest problem with this piece is the mouth piece - the cover is not easy to pop (it took me 2 hands and excessive force to get it to open... the question is, if both my hands were on the tea mug, who was holding the steering wheel?). The second problem with the mouth piece is that once open, that piece flops around, it isn't secure, which means that when you're drinking, it smacks your nose/face! Or you have to use your forefinger to prevent that from happening.

I have had this mug now for about 1 month and I use it every day about 5 times each day. It has never broke, got stuck or anything. It infuses the tea perfectly and then when it's done, I just pop the infuser back into the lid. The tea stays warm for about 1 1/2 hours or so. It is great for the car, park or walking to the bus stop. It's easy to clean as well. I highly recommend it.

I have been looking all over for something like this! All of the other to-go tea infusers just have a little strainer that sits on top, so you still have to pull the tea out of the tumbler before you can drink out of it. Some of the infuser mugs just go into another mug, so you have to bring 2 mugs.

This has improved my mornings greatly! Let me tell you why. As I'm gathering my things to leave for work in the morning, I have the kettle heating up my water. In this Aladdin Tea Infuser, I twist off the lid and turn it over. Inside the lid is a little tea ball/basket thingy. I snap open the basket, and drop in my loose tea leaves. I snap it shut. Right before I head out of the door, I pour my hot water in, twist on the lid and flip the lever on the side of the lid. The lever releases the tea basket from the inside of the lid and it drops into the water. My tea is steeping in my car while I'm driving to work. I usually go by looking at the color of my tea water, or 3 mins later, I flip the lever on the lid back and the basket pulls back up into the lid. The tea never touches the water again. It sits under the lid and hides while I drink from the mouth hole on the other side of it. The mouth hole has a lid that snaps on shut on the hole to keep your drink hot. Be careful, though because the steam can build up a little when you open it back up. (When I'm steeping it, I lay the mouthpiece down, but I don't snap it shut all of the way. There isn't a release valve for the steam to escape) The lid of the mouth piece folds all the way back, so it doesn't bother you while you drink. The mug itself is has a double wall, so it keeps the drink hot and you don't burn your hands while handling it.

And you know what's the best part of all?
