When I read that there's a lid I assumed it covered the whole cup and not just the infuser. And the holes on the bottom of the filter are a bit large so it doesn't strain as much as I'd like. I figured the bottom of the strainer would be mesh but it isn't. It's plastic with toothpick sized holes. I'm a little sad...I expected more.
great mug, inconsistent pricing
The infuser is really great for smaller teas. I love that it has a lid to put in to prevent messes.
I bought this one week ago to try it out before buying another one to gift. Now that I have tried it out the price has gone up and I don't understand why.
My mom loves this thing, as does my boyfriend. It's really easy to use, elegant (when you take out the tea strainer) and pretty. I would repurchase this again, and I really like it.
I can make my tea quick and easy with this! I use teavana tea leaves which some of the finer teas do slip through the strainer, but overall I'm pleased with this. I often leave the leave in the strainer to brew my second cup half hour later.
BODUM® Yo-Yo Tea Set
This is my favorite way to brew loose leaf tea by the glass. The results come out perfect every time. Just make sure you use the right water temperature and time for the type of tea that you are brewing.
