This review is from: The Fine Life Ideal Gift Bottom Dispensing Loose Leaf Tea Infuser and Coffee Brewer 16oz
I am a big tea drinker and while I normally use tea bags, I do like the option of being able to purchase loose tea and use an infuser to make it with. I also have a favorite decaf coffee that I like to drink on a fairly regular basis. I decided to try this infuser out, since it can be used for both tea and coffee.
This kit comes with the infuser container, two filters, a measuring spoon, a mug /cup extender ring and a coaster. It also comes with a nice laminated colored instruction card which has not only English, but two or three other languages on it as well.
I decided to make tea in my infuser, since I had some lovely English Breakfast tea leaves to use. All you do is measure out your tea or coffee to the desired strength or cup size you are using, and put that amount in the infuser. I have a fairly large cup, so I used two teaspoons of loose tea and when I put the water in the infuser , I filled it about 7/8ths of the way full. Once you have put the hot water in on top of your tea leaves or coffee, you just let it sit for the desired amount of steeping time. I let mine sit about 5 minutes.
Now, this is the funny part. I was trying to figure out how that tea was going to get from the infuser into my cup… I was looking for some mechanism I had to use to release the tea from the infuser. Well, all you have to do, is set the infuser section down on top of your cup or mug and in about 3 seconds, all the liquid has drained down into your cup and all the tea leaves are left in the top part. Its pretty cool!
This is a pretty nifty infuser set and it would make a lovely gift for your favorite tea or coffee enthusiast. I suggest purchasing some loose leaf tea or ground coffee along with it and you could even include a fun mug also, for a really nice gift basket of hot drink goodness.
Share the joy
