What our Citizens are saying about this great gift of the leaf...
Falls in cup
October 03, 2013
Works fine in small mugs, but lacks "ears" for larger mugs (thus, the infuser falls in and sinks to the bottom). The plastic infuser is hard to clean, the tea leaves tend to stick to the mesh and don't easily wash out under running water. I have a Finum Brewing Basket (made of metal mesh) which is very nice. It has none of the defects that this one has.

Works great as advertised. I have both the plastic and the Stainless. The Plastic seems to be just a little finer mesh. Although I have had no problems with it, I ordered the stainless as an extra as it might be more durable for daily use. Both work great, no problems.

I've been experimenting with these baskets. The plastic ones are lovely, but they stain and warp easily.
The stainless steel one rusts even when washed and dried right away. I like the shape of the stainless steel one better than the plastic because it is a bit wider (to sit on the lip of the cup). I wish I was more pleased - the idea is great . . .
a perfect mate for the brew basket

If you have problems with the diameter of the stainless Republic of Tea Brew Basket consider using it in the classic Starbucks 12 oz. ceramic thermal mug - a ceramic copy of their original white paper "tall" cup. Its as if they were made for each other - thus you have a portable 12 oz tea pot and thermal tea mug with lid to-go!
Wow - I love this!

I have bought three of these so we all can have tea at the same time. I got the wire ones, and they fit so well right into the top of every cup I have. 5 Stars is all I can give it. It doesn't let me do 10 stars!
