Simply awesome.

I had a Chatsford infuser for my teapot and a ForLife infuser for brewing in a mug. The ForLife has been difficult to clean and a little hard to balance in a bigger mug, but nice otherwise. The teapot infuser is much easier to clean but not designed to rest in a mug at all. As the Finum looks a lot like my Chatsford, only mug-friendly, I thought I’d give it a shot.

It is great. Easy to use, easy to rest on the rim of bigger mugs, doesn’t leave behind a lot of flotsam and jetsam, and easy to clean.

100,000/100,000 stars!

That’s a lot of stars.

Upton has had these on sale for a while at the best price around that I’ve found. Not sure if they still so but I know I stocked up lol

Anyanka

Yup, that’s where I got this one. Six-dollars-and-something-cents. In a lovely burgundy, to match my tired eyes.

Anyanka, Thanks for your comparison of the Finum and the ForLife brewing baskets. It was very helpful!

Sil and Anyanka,
Thanks for the heads-up on the Upton pricing! Their $4.40 shipping fee is also very reasonable. We just received a pair of them, size medium, in an attractive shade of green and are very pleased with them!

Sil

Nice! That’s great :)

Anyanka

I went missing for a bit, but I’m glad this was helpful. I continue to prefer the Finum over the hard-to-clean ForLife.

Bio

Here are the things I drink: Tea, water, coffee, beer, whiskey, wine.

I’ve been drinking tea since I was a little girl, but only recently began learning about tea and drinking loose leaf.

I prefer unflavored tea to flavored, tea leaves to tisanes, but I’m not inflexible and will try nearly anything.

I’m still learning, so thank you in advance for your patience and your help.

Also, I had to come up with a way to quantify my ratings because I was being really inconsistent:

100-90: Delicious, must keep in stock.

89-80: Excellent, a definite reorder.

79-70: Good, an occasional reorder.

69-50: Pleasant, but it was a one night stand.

49-30: Not good, but drinkable.

29-20: Bad, but I finished the cup.

19-10: Terrible. Couldn’t finish a cup.

10 and below: Undrinkable, requires mouthwash and counseling.
