In-Mug Tea Infuser
Great infuser for full leaf teas.
I was concerned about whether or not it would fit every mug I have at home, but it does! My loose leaf has room to expand in this. If you don't like small particles of leaves in your tea, it's not your product. I do like the bits, so it's a lovely infuser for me. The stand is handy to have. I recommend this.

There is a much better one out there
For loose tea brewing the mesh strainers are MUCH better. I have had mine for a while and use it as a backup - the bottom piece has fallen out and the mesh isn't fine enough to strain all the pieces out.

Great While it Lasted
I found this infuser to be far superior to the ball-type I had been using in the past. It is larger and that helps it to produce more flavor by allowing more hot water to circulate among the tea leaves. Yes, some small leaves of the Japanese green tea I use do escape to the bottom of my cup but that's no big deal. My one reservation is that after 8 or 9 months' use, the top parted company with the strainer. Apparently the two parts were cemented together and the bonding failed. I might try another type, but I am also open to buying this same model again and hoping it holds together for a much longer period.

Don't waste your money
I bought this tea infuser because I liked its simplicity. I thought it would work wonderful with any loose teas that I had. Unfortunately every time I use this the smaller tea particles slip into my tea. When I get to the bottom of my cup I always get a very unpleasant mouthful of tea. This works alright with teas that have large leafs but anything with smaller particles and this is useless. I would not recommend this to anyone. Very disappointing.

I thought it was little bit pricy for the simple tea infuser but it worth all the money spent. Use it every day with loose tea and it is easy to use and clean. Tea quality is great (if you use a good brand). Love it, trying to buy it for my daughter.
