You start out by making sure the filter is in place on the infuser, put a couple of scoops (with the included scooper) of loose leaf tea into the infuser and then fill it to your liking with hot water. Leave the tea sit for about 5 minutes and then carefully place the bottom dispensing infuser over top the cup and let it rest. When the infuser is placed on top of the cup, the tea comes out of the bottom of the infuser, directly into the cup. It’s easy and very mess free. Cleanup was as simple as rinsing the infuser out and washing the color changing mug by hand. The mug and the infuser fit perfectly and there’s even an included adapter for bigger cups that the infuser may not fit well on. If you’re worried about the infuser leaking or drops of tea , you can place the infuser on the included coaster.
The only time I have ever had tea as fresh as The Fine Life loose leaf tea was when I purchased it from Starbucks or a local tea shop. Now I can make them at home with ease! The Fine Life has many tea flavors to choose from and they even come in sets of 4 so you can take turns trying them all. Speaking of Starbucks, you’re not limited to making tea in the infuser. You can make coffee too!! You read that right…you can make coffee!!
Did you notice that the mug is color changing?!?! The writing ‘I’m Living the Fine Life’ is a color very close to the same color as the mug and you can see it slightly. Once you pour your beverage into the mug, the writing turns white right in front of your eyes – like magic! My included pictures show my mug about halfway filled so you can see the color difference in the writing. I am in love with my tea infuser set and am so glad that I finally own one!!
