So this is how it's supposed to be used: Brew loose tea in a pot, pour tea into a cup through the strainer and the stray leaves are caught.
This is how I use it: Put loose tea in the strainer, put the strainer over a cup, and fill the cup all the way up to the brim because the basket is so shallow, let it steep, and then lift strainer out and dump the tea.
A deeper basket is much more useful in this regard. Generally I use my deeper basket and after I dump the tea leaves I rest the basket in the ... dish ... thing. However, i will say that the handles on either side of the basket I'm reviewing reach nice and wide and will perch on mugs and not just slender tea and coffee cups.
For me, it's a backup. I misplaced my deep basket, purchased this, found my original basket, and now have a lovely cooperation between the two ... and a backup plan.
