It comes with a coaster to place this on while steeping, as well as an extra mesh strainer and acrylic stand to fit larger/smaller mugs. You simply place this on top of your mug (or cup if pouring over ice) and once its drained, you’re good to go!
I usually brew my tea or coffee two times before I throw it away, put it in the garden or composter etc. I rinse it out with warm water and its ready for the next time! I got the set with the color changing mug and the Raspberry Rooibos tea. What a great set for the coffee or tea drinker in your life!
