Another ingenious stainless steel tea infuser is perfect for brewing a cup of tea at any time. No more having to worry about your mesh tea ball opening up and spilling out the leaves. With this you just push the button to slide it open, scoop up your artisan loose leaf tea straight into the spoon, then release the button to close it securely. Place it in your cup pour in the water and steep for the recommended period of time. When your tea is ready just set it aside. Easy to use; easy to clean. No mess!
