I'd like to take a minute to praise this design - here are the highlights:
- Incredibly fine masking - even teas with really fine particulates (such as Rooibos and some green teas) leave almost no residue at the bottom of your cup.
- Perfect fit for almost any cup in my cupboard - even fits in teapot (and is large enough), if we have guests.
- Insulated lid keeps the tea hot for a good, long steep (I like my tea strong and hot!) - and it's rubber all the way around, so you don't burn your fingers when you remove it.
- The lid has a ridge, which helps it insulate better, but also doubles as a "parking spot" after steeping, so there's no mess!
Beside the design, the quality of manufacture is also great - the masking is the finest I've ever seen, and the metal parts are beautifully finished, almost like chrome.
In my humble opinion, this is the best tea-strainer you'll find.
And this is coming from someone who thinks 98 out of 100 products (especially kitchen products) on the market today are absolutely terrible in terms of design. Manufacture, for the most part, has gotten cheap and very good in the past 5-10 years - but design, in general, has been reduced to second-place, in favor of branding.
Consumers, pay attention! Don't be fooled by over-priced brand-name junk - recognize good design, and spread the word when you see it. Talk about the products - ignore the brands. Help bring back good design and put an end to consumerism!
Given how much money you could spend on overpriced so-called "designer" junk, at 15 bucks, this product is worth every cent, and will stay with me for a long, long time! :-)
I've used many types of infusers (listed below). This FORLIFE infuser is the one I would most likely buy again. The only real competitor is the Finium brewing basket, which has an exceptionally fine mesh and may be better for teas with a lot of fines.
*Simple and safe* -- only the stainless steel touches the liquid. No BPA or other contaminants for your tea.
*Sturdy* -- thick stainless steel with machined or etched perforations. It would take some work to put a dent in it during normal use.
*Fine holes* -- my most common gripe about infusers is that they let dust through. This infuser does an excellent job keeping the tea inside the infuser. It's ideal for lose teas with a lot of fines such as chamomile or rooibos.
*Good permeability* -- too often the trade-off is between larger holes or less permeability. This infuser does both.
*Thoughtful design* -- the silicone liner on the lid makes it easy to handle. The lid keeps heat in while brewing and doubles as a holder and drip catcher for the infuser when you're done with it. Handy for work use or other locations where you might not have a sink handy.
*Easy to clean*
*Good size for most mugs* -- the basket is about 2 3/8" in diameter, the bevel below the lid should fit inside a 2 7/8" opening. Total height is about 3".
Not made in USA (I think it was China).

As one reviewer noted, if you have a small/narrow mug it may not work for you, but truthfully I've never used small or skinny mugs so I know this product works for me. My mug is a 14oz. mug.
