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.

I totally agree with most of the comments above. I went into the Whittard shop in Nottingham last Saturday for some green tea bags, they only had loose tea in the flavour I required, so I asked for some help on which infuser to buy, I was told that the spring action was a good one because it is so easy to clean, all I can say is this person totally lied as I don't think he has ever used one. It has been such a waste of money and as I don't live near the shop I can't take it back without spending the same amount in petrol. I am very disappoint in Whittards!
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.
