By far these are the best finders for loose tea. They allow you to make a large mug of tea. Smaller ‘ball’ type tea infusers don’t allow for the 2 teaspoons needed for a full 12 oz mug.One note is these don’t fit easily on wide mouth mugs so you need to balance it on the lip of the mug while it brews but I have not found this to be a problem.
Fine mesh works great for Rooibos and other fine teas. Mesh and cup is easy to clean.
I'm a daily tea drinking. Like may cups per day. I've brewed many types of tea and yerba mate using these and have been very impressed. Little to no tea makes it past the fine strainer so you don't end up sipping loose leaves. I read that some people have trouble cleaning them. I don't find it difficult. As the tea dries out, it easily releases from the basket. Mine rarely has time to dry out becuase I use them so often, and even removing wet leaves has been easy. Simply rinse the basket upside down and shake. To make them even better, they are made in Germany, not China, and that's hard to find these days! Overall, these are excellent brewing baskets at a very reasonable price. Wish I'd found them sooner!
These filters are great for when we want to make individual cups of tea and don't want to dirty the whole tea pot for just one cup. They're also great for when two people want two different flavors of tea. We like using loose leaf tea for the fuller flavor they provide. I'm glad they come with the little covers as well so my hubby doesn't leave a mess on the table when he takes the filter out of his cup.
Best in the mug tea filter out there. Fits my large travel mug like a glove. For those that are all bent out of shape about cleaning these, give it a rest - literally. Just let it sit and dry out before trying to get all the leaves out. Then knock the top flat in your sink or what ever and the junk will fall right out. Even Rooibos comes out easily with that method, granted you might need to give a scrub with a wide soft bottle brush now and again, but I've got one I've used for years and it works fine. If you get any scale build up from water evaporation, just give them a soak in some diluted white vinegar, rinse well and allow to dry and your good to go. This from a heavy tea drinker - I go through ounce of English breakfast tea, Sencha Green and Rooibos blends every week and these hold up just fine.
I've had this set for several months now, and I use them on a daily basis. I didn't really know what to expect because I've always used a tea ball, but I doubt I'll ever go back as long as these are being made!The positives:- They've fit every cup I've used, in all sizes, without the need to prop them up or dig them out when the tea is done.- They're easy to clean - the screens are so small that nothing really gets stuck. I just flip them over and run water over the outside, and it all comes right out!- The cap doubles as a holder for the filter after use, so no mess or ring to clean up.- They keep the tea IN the filter! I don't mind herbs floating in my tea, but I prefer it when they're there on purpose.
