i have my concerns...the inside is plastic. if you dont want to put plastic in hot water ( i dont) then move on to an old fashion tea ball.
theres also a metal spring inside the device. you cant see it; you also cant see it if it begins to rust.
you cant pack much tea in this either.. being that the tea expands when wet, i can only fill it half way, and am not able to make my teas strong enough.
hope this helps
--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!
Cleaning is a snap.
The design is very modern.
Portability: It is small enough for you to carry with you in your purse. But I don't see many people traveling with a can of loose tea in their purse/messenger bag (so portability would hardly be the main concern).
The plastic is heat safe and doesn't add metallic taste to the tea.
Filling it with tea is a struggle (snout is too narrow, need one hand to hold the infuser open and another to fill in the tea).
The holes are too small and only on 1 side so the tea doesn't defuse well (70%-80%). (If you like your tea mild this will not be a problem, If you, however; like your tea strong this is not for you.
Not practical for 'low rise' porcelain cups (classic english tea cup) infuser will not stand.
Some people are also concerned about the inner spring durability. Personally I do not worry about it as the spring is strong and well insolated from the part that does get wet.
One must consider his/her needs and other products other there. Compare to other infusers I give it 3* I like it but I don't love it.
The reason I didn't vote 5 stars is because I feel it is over-priced compared to similar products.
Overall the product was packed well and it does the job. A little messy for office (as compared to a tea bag), but I can live with that. Great for infusing mint and other herbs with your tea. I hope this product lasts long as I do not see the plastic material to be that heavy duty. It is easy to clean and maintain.
Do not buy it thinking that it is "Made in Germany" and you will be happy.

I bought this at a high end shop, thought it was a nice option to the clunky tea balls.
It's hard to fill and then close without losing some of the tea. Read more
This was very difficult to use. The spring kept snapping back as I tried to fill it which would fling tea everywhere, and it didn't hold much tea. Read morePublished 15 months ago by Angel
