super lilttle dipper
love being able to use the tea leaves more than once , actually 3 times!
Works great, as I expected
I have had a hard time even finding this item now that I have it I find that it works great, as I expected it would.
I don't know about tasting...I just know I bought it for my mom for her organic Earl Grey and she loves it!
Love My Little Dipper
It is great for brewing just one cup of tea. It is holding up great. I like that it is stainless steel. It cleans up great too!
Love My Little Dipper
This is perfect for a cup of tea. I use mine every day, and I'm had it for several years. It is an excellent investment. Only fill it on one side, as most teas expand a lot.
The Little Dipper
Made a great stocking stuffer. I use it every day! Great purchase!
Awesome little item, I been using it every day for the past 4 months and have no complaints about it, I'm actually thinking of buying another one just in case.
Great for the office
Handy infuser for home or office if you use loose tea leaves. Never have to worry about being out of filters.
The perfect little infuser
Awesome little infuser, just the right size. Stays shut very well and doesn't leak tea leaves. Takes a minute to clean, but otherwise perfect!
Perfectly Suits My Loose Tea Needs
I like the ease of use (spring-back mechanism), and am very happy with this item.
Snazzy little Helper
Very handy managing loose tea; just scoop it in and drop it into my cup. No escaped "edibles". Only recommendation would be to make the hand-held portion with a flattened area so it doesn't twist in hand when holding open
Looks great but leaks!
I bought the Little Dipper at a local store. I love the look of it. It holds enough tea for a single serving. BUT it leaks leaves out the sides, even when it appears to be snugly closed, even when I take care to tuck the leaves into one half and make sure none are in the way. Too bad, because I thought the point of an infuser was to keep the tea leaf-free. (Maybe I'm wrong. I'm relatively new to loose-leaf tea.) The handle absorbs heat from the water, of course, so be careful not to burn yourself when removing it from your cup. (This is not a problem with chain infusers.)
Does the job...
I currently use two of these infusers to steep tea in my large thermos a few times each day. They do the job... But not without escaped leaves (always). I do wish the capacity of each bulb was slightly larger, too. All in all, just OK.
One of the best things about it is that it doesn't leak tiny leaves like so many other infusers do. And it arrived so quickly!
Better than the kind on a chain
Great for individual servings, just put the tea in,set it in your cup, and pour the water over. I don't know why I prefer it to the little ball on a chain type. It just has a 'cool' factor for me.
Best for smaller leaves
I've found that using this with a tightly rolled or large-leaf tea simply doesn't work-- the leaves expand too much and end up being cramped inside the infuser (steep them loose or in a basket instead). For smaller leaves, however, it is a wonderful and convenient addition to my tea shelf.
