To use all you have to do is load and brew it’s that easy! You can set it flat, add a measure of your loose tea or even your coffee ground, add your hot water. As you steep, your tea will expand and float while releasing it’s flavor. It makes sense as I’ve only ever used the tea bags and bails but having it float and release it’s flavor would make a full bodied tea. You can than dispense your tea or coffee into your coffee cup with no mess or fuss as the strainer keeps the tea from leaking out into your cup.
To maintain or clean, simply hand wash with warm water to easily clear your Infuser then towel dry. Thank goodness for this because now I don’t have to picking all the tea particles and coffee grains out of my teas and coffees. With this purchase you also get a 1 tsp spoon, extra filter and an acrylic extender to fit your Ideal Infuser over any sized mug.
