I drink lots of tea, this looks like fun, and its super cheap, so I gave it a shot
The thing is made of a soft silicone material, filling it with tea was east, the lid does't stay on very well, even when dry I didn't get a great sense that it would stick, and I was right, on her maiden voyage this yellow sub opened her cargo door while in the water, dumping her cargo of tea leaves into the cup. So I quickly fished it out using the attached chain, threw that cup down the sink and tried again.
The second time was a bit better, maybe she needed the hot water to help seal the door.
After that it was cool, it floated for a little bit then slowly as the hot water got into the sub she began to dive, little by little, the whole process took about 5 to 10 minutes. The tea I used is rather dark, and while letting it steep, I the flavor didn't come through as well as it should have, or as well as it does with other tea balls.
It works, and its kind of fun, I imagine kids would get a kick out of it... I did, since i'm just a big kid myself. It's not a big thing, but this item came via registered mail from Turkey. I wasn't home when it arrived so I needed to go to the post office and sign for it, I thought everything came from China nowadays, but this apparently is a Turkish product.
Very cool thing to bust out when friends are over because its neat, but otherwise i'll keep using my other tea balls
-Really cute and cool (I mean, obviously)
-Is attached by a chain so you can lower it so it's however long you need it to be
-It has a little piece that connects the cap to the bottom of the sub so you don't lose your cap
-A bit flimsy
-Lid doesn't stay on extremely well but works okay
-Doesn't steep your tea very well (Silicone Tea Infusers seem to all have this problem though; I own like 5 different ones now)
-Only stays submerged if you squeeze the air out of it under your water... (Squeeze VERY carefully or the lid will pop off)
Overall, this guy will work, but expect some weak flavored tea. I would really dislike this little guy, except he's so darn cute.
P.S. - Sorry for the poor quality photo.
Alas, our voyage was scuttled. She went belly up. No amount of nautical cursing or cajoling could right her parakeet bright hull. Being no closer to the sailing life than a familiarity with cracker jack snacking, I feared the worse. After further research I discovered the following:
'To keep the submarine level at any set depth, the submarine maintains a balance of air and water in the trim tanks so that its overall density is equal to the surrounding water (neutral buoyancy). When the submarine reaches its cruising depth, the hydroplanes are leveled so that the submarine travels level through the water. Water is also forced between the bow and stern trim tanks to keep the sub level. The submarine can steer in the water by using the tail rudder to turn starboard (right) or port (left) and the hydroplanes to control the fore-aft angle of the submarine. In addition, some submarines are equipped with a retractable secondary propulsion motor that can swivel 360 degrees.'
Adding this level of engineering would leave very little space for tea. Obviously the construction is flawed. Albatross flawed.She does not submerge, she floats on her back above tea level like a jaundiced otter.
It's a great product too. The right size, easy to fill, easy to empty and easy to clean. There is a convenient hook at the end of the chain to keep it from slipping into your tea.
The only reason I took off a star was that the chain discolored after the first use and left a dark stain on the inside of the cup. It was left sitting overnight though, so maybe that was why. We cleaned them both up and while the chain is still dark, not shiny silver anymore, it doesn't impact the taste of the tea at all.
In terms of the submarine not tipping over, hanging it from something above rather than hooking the chain over the side seems to help, but with all that I just reach for my other more practical, less cute infuser.
1. It does not come in the box shown (would have been a bit more presentable as a gift).
2. It comes in two silicone pieces that fit together (the front half and the back half) but it seems really loose already. I think the person I'm giving it to will enjoy it for a while, I'm not sure it will last a long time.
1. Many of the other reviews mentioned that the holes were too big for loose tea. While I haven't used it myself, they look like the standard size for a tea infuser like this.
2. It's so darn cute! I love the yellow color.
Bottom line: Not the best quality, but a cute novelty item.
