I washed each of the pieces before initial use. When I was ready to make my tea, all I had to do was put two teaspoons of loose tea into the bottom of the pot. The pot has a 16 ounce capacity, and I intended to make a full pot. You would have to adjust the amount of tea leaves used based on how much you intend to brew…or for desired strength. Steeping times vary depending on the type of tea you are using. I purchased this infuser with a loose tea from the same seller…so I just followed the recommend times on the tea canister. When the tea is done steeping, just position over your mug. There is an adapter provided to accommodate many different sizes of mugs. When the infuser is placed on top the mug, the bottom is forced upwards…and the tea is dispensed through the strainer. Very easy to do…and keeps things clean and tidy. I love the green color of the infuser lid and coaster…looks great and coordinates with my kitchen. I love that the pot is BPA free. Also, it is very easy to clean…just rinse under warm water. There is a bonus additional filter provided if needed. There is also a clear measuring teaspoon…very cute and functional!

Very uniquely designed tea infuser! It works similar to a French press…you get the benefit of steeping tea loose in the hot water. This increases surface area and adds to the flavor. But unlike a French press…you don’t have to mess with a plunger! The tea is dispensed from the bottom, through a strainer! Less mess and easy to do! The pot has a nice weight and thickness to it…appears to be pretty durable.
