A great spring-action infuser for brewing tea leaves in a cup or mug. With a simple pull down motion, you can open the infuser and scoop up your desired amount of tealeaves. Once released the infuser springs shut, capturing the leaves inside. A fun, novel and attractive way to infuse loose tea in a cup or mug.

This looks gorgeous. Bought it as part of a gift with lots of different loose tea's how ever, first use concludes that it's a waste of time as the holes are two large to contain the tea there it needs straining anyway :(
Very disappointed especially as it was given as a gift :(
I took mine back for a refund as the two halves don't slide open enough to get a good quantity of tea in. Then the wet tea leaves are impossible to get out without a lot of poking with a sharp knife. As I drink 12 cups of tea a day, totally useless.
Have to agree with what has been already said. Very pretty but not fit for purpose. A bother to get used tea leaves out and also lots of stray tea leaves escape into the tea when ready to drink so much so that it really has to be strained again . Not good.
I can see why loose tea would be a problem, but this is great for things like fresh mint tea, or more bulky infusion options. This is what I got given to use in a lovely french chain of restaurants and worked a dream for fresh mint.
Completely impractical. As others have said, the two halves don't fully slide apart making it hard to empty/clean when the leaves are wet, and it can't be used solely with a mug/cup of tea because the tea leaves escape, floating around in the cup. Had to try to make it work by making the tea in a jug then pouring it into a mug with an additional tea strainer - a joke!
