First of all, the style is perfect for me because I'm a fan of the movie Elf that has the unicorn/whale creature, Mr. Narwhal. I saw this and thought, "Ooh, what a unique addition to my collection!" When it arrived, I couldn't wait to brew a cup of tea using it.
So besides being cute, how does it work? Well, I think it works very well. I put some very finely ground tea into the infuser and set it into my mug of hot water. The infuser gripped the sides of the cup well - although if it were a mug with thicker sides, it may not have worked - and the water moved in and out as it should. I did find that the tea seeped much quicker if I moved the infuser around a bit rather than letting it just sit on the side of the mug. I also found that with the finely ground tea that it will fall through the holes of the infuser when it's moved around. That isn't something that bothers me, but I wanted to mention it here.
The Narwhal tea infuser is a really great buy for any tea fan - especially those who like Elf.
This novelty silicone tea infuser comes in the shape of a manatee named Fred that will hang on the rim of your cup to be your tea infuser. The ManaTea Fred manatea tea infuser comes apart in the middle with ease so you can place your tea on the inside. The body is made of a soft yet durable silicon so it will be able to handle the high temperatures of boiling water of you glass of tea. What a great conversation starter or even a great way to startle someone. As how often does one see a manatee having a glass of tea? Thank ManaTea for Fred the manatee tea infuser.
We have a small handful of tea infusers in the house as we do drink tea on occasion. The ManaTea tea infuser staring Fred the manatee does stand out from the rest of our tea infusers. The daughter is who saw this product and wished to have it for her cups of tea with her friends. Our only concern is what exactly is the tea infuser silicon make up. As we could not find out if it was BPA free or not. We would recommend this product to others if they were seeking a novelty tea item.
We were not paid nor discounted in any way, shape or form for giving our honest opinion here of this product as a review to assist others. We believe, as a family, it is important to give an honest and accurate review to assist others so they can make good purchasing decisions that can benefit them and their family. And not be lead to cheap, unwanted purchases that are scripted by advertisers to buy their products. We are a family that believes in a minimalist lifestyle while trying to be green as much as possible in all departments of our life. As we care to leave something, anything, of this planet to our grandchildren so they may enjoy it as we have.
My only gripe (hence my "4.5 stars out of 5, but rounding up" headline) is that the shape of his head (where the loose tea goes) is a little tedious to empty once you're ready to rinse and refill him with fresh tea. Fortunately, his head is soft and flexible, so one may "squish" it to help coax the used tea leaves out. But I imagine some of the other designs are much more straightforward and involve less hassle.
A final comment: I've seen that some tea infusers marketed as "food-grade silicone" sometimes come with steel inserts, which aren't always clearly visible in pictures provided by the manufacturer. In my opinion, steel inserts entirely defeat the purpose of using food-grade silicone. Most of us who wanted to transition or already have transitioned to silicone tea infusers do/did so because steel rusts -- yes, even so-called "stainless" -- and rust is definitely not something anyone wants to ingest! The Octeapus doesn't come with any steel inserts or other bits. He's entirely metal-free!
