But alas, the end of the day I was seeking a good cup of strong tea, and there are several issues with this novelty item:
You have to fill it nearly to the BRIM of you're cup to properly submerge it to the top of the holes near his waist. Personally, I avoid filling a mug so full it would spill if I tried to hold it The main issue is in the design as the little paws hold onto it high up. The torse needs to be a little longer in my opinion, or something. I gave up and let my Sloth completely drown to make sure I was getting the most out of the infusing.
Unfortunately, even that never provided a remotely strong cup of tea. It just tasted like water. I am so sad. It is adorable, but not functional at all for the purpose I needed. Especially for spending $10 on it...thus, I processed the return.
Instead, I decided to be boring and ordered Schefs Premium Tea Infuser - Stainless Steel - Single Cup - Perfect Strainer for Loose Leaf Tea instead, WHICH IS ABSOLUTELY PERFECT. I highly recommend it if you are a tea snob and want a good strong cup of tea. That one has holes everywhere, stores plenty of loose tea, securely clicks into place to close the lid, has a hook to put onto the edge of your cup, and fits perfect in a travel mug so you can steep and keep it hot before using. Most importantly, makes a delightful cup of tea. I began this search to make Mae from the bulk item Cruz De Malta 1/2 Kilo Yerba Mate (next time Ill get the full kilo, i ordered this smaller one by mistake... yes im that much of a mate addict).
-Tea comes out
-Mr. Tea gets in the way
-Not enough room for more tea leaves
Overall, I felt like I wasted my money. At the time of purchase, the item was $10.
In terms of the infusion, the silicone doesn't add any "weird chemical flavor" and looks cute on the mug. We did have some issue with really small tea particles floating out into the water but it's not an issue if you enjoy the tea anyway, in my opinion.
It's screws onto itself when you fill it with tea. Try to use half a tea spoon at a sitting to prevent it from spilling out while you're filling it. It holds about a table spoon when it's full.
In terms of cleaning, just rinsing it with hot water seems to keep the sloth nice and clean. It can just sit out to dry as well.
Overall, easy to use and doesn't leave any weird aftertastes, looks cute on a mug. Fits the bill.
