I picked this up for $18 off of Amazon and I couldn’t be happier. It is perfect for the kitchen, and if you pair it with an electric kettle it is perfect for your desk. If your on the edge about this, get it.

A fantastic way to make individual mugs of any full-leaf tea and most tisanes, this steeper is not so good with rooibos, mint, the yellow flower petals in “pretty” teas, or any other small things. The filter is fine, the problem is cleaning. After use, you pretty much need to be by a sink to get all the little bits out. Not normally an issue, but this will not be in my bag when I go camping in the future.
Received this today and… Wow! Such a difference from tea bags! It’s so easy to use and, having seen the size of the unfurled leaves, I am so glad I went with this rather than a tea ball or similar!
My only minor complaint is that with one of my Rooibos teas, some of the leaves escaped. However, the leaves do seem exceptionally small, compared to other Rooibos teas that I have. So probably just a rubbish tea!
