1) The tea infuser as the directions DO indicate is used for loose tea. The directions on how to use the flowering tea are actually right on the box itself and I am unsure how someone could miss it. One must actually read the loose directions that come in the box to uderstand how to use the tea infuser for LOOSE tea which is in fact what a tea infuser is used for. This does not however seem like the best infuser but its a free addition so I wont complain. I actually like using this infuser to drain the pot for the last cup without getting all of the loose tea bits mixed in.
2) 40oz is 40oz. It makes about 5 cups of tea. I am talking about actual tea cups not going out and buying a 32oz Big Guld and calling it a tea cup.
3) There is a plastic shell that does partially encase the pot...go ahead and take a look at the picture. I have mixed feelings on this. I like to see the tea blossom and a totally clear pot allows for this to a greater extent. The plastic casing however does help insulate the pot and allows you to handle the pot a little easier as it does not tranfer the heat to the handle and the base.
4) Incase anyone was wondering the Spanish review said that the pot came broken. This is more of a shipping issue than a pot usage issue. My pot came boxed in bubble wrap and was not broken.
5) Hope this review helped...Happy Sipping!!!
I had this product for about a year when it broke while I was cleaning it. I used it 2 times a week. The spout had
slid to the left side. While I wiped the pot I though I should try to fix the defect. I used no more force than I normally did to clean the pot. I had to rush to the hospital to have the tip of my finger sewn back on. This was a few months ago and I still have a deformed finger and nerve damage. This $20 tea set ended up costing about a thousand dollars.
I buy mine in the housewares section of a local Asian supermarket for about $5 each - a fraction of the $20 - $25 that I see them being sold for online. For a $5 teapot, they are WONDERFUL. For a $20 teapot - well, for that kind of money, I can buy a teapot that is just as function but doesn't look like something I picked up in a dollar store.
As I write this the price quoted is $19. At that price, I would give it 3 stars - it is a perfectly functional cheap teapot with a strainer basket. But it is made out of cheap materials and LOOKS cheap. If you want something utilitarian and don't mind overpaying to save the hassle of visiting an Asian market, then go for it. At the $5 price I pay for it at the Asian market I would give it 5 stars - it will make your tea just as well and just as easily as a more expensive pot will.
One plus, by the way, about the pot is that it pours without mess. I have an expensive cast iron teapot that I have pretty much stopped using because, when one pours it, some of the tea runs down the side of the spout and, if one is not careful, out the lid, and makes a mess. I have also had porcelain teapots with traditional spouts that also dribbled down the side of the spout. The primary reason I use this teapot is because it is less messy than more expensive ones I have had. The spout does not dribble. And, of course, the strainer basket helps minimize mess as well.
When they arrived I was a bit disappointed by 3 things:
1) one teapot came in a cute box with a photo of the flowering tea blooming in the pot while the other teapot came in a plain white box with a product code and "made in china" printed on in black block letters (not so pretty to give as a gift);
2) the box with the picture of the teapot had an "As Seen on TV" emblem on it, which made it seem a bit cheesey;
3) The quality of the plastic was cheap and the glass seemed really flimsy- it wasn't the nicest teapot to give as a gift.
Still I thought giving it with the box of teas made it a decent gift for a yankee swap, so I did. I kept the 2nd teapot for myself.
The first time I washed it I was so careful, but I still tapped the side of my sink when moving it from sink to draining board (I hand washed it as a safeguard- ha!). The glass shattered into many tiny, sharp shards. I cleaned it up, but it was pretty dangerous (I'm glad it broke in my sink and not on my floor!).
All in all I'm disappointed with this purchase. The product isn't high quality and the glass is so flimsy, I knew it was just a matter of when (not if) it was going to break. I'm just glad I got it for free. I would not buy again and I would not recommend to others :( Which is too bad because I did enjoy watching the flower bloom when tea was steeping.
