A marvellous little gadget - and I don't even drink tea!!
on 3 July 2015
I'm not a tea drinker (except with fish and chips, when I think it's the best drink to have).
But my partner and plenty of my friends take tea regularly so I am always making it for someone.
Years ago I tried other tea bag 'squeezy' things and was not particularly impressed. Neither was I particularly impressed by using the back of a spoon and then trying to fish the bag out of the cup.
I bought this almost as a joke for my partner. But, believe me, it's no joke.
It works effortlessly and I enjoy using it. Even pumping it up and down a few times (she likes strong tea) takes little effort.
I won't describe exactly how to use it because it will probably sound complicated when it really isn't. Just look at the product pictures and you will easily see.
Don't be put off by the fact that it's plastic. It's quite robust (unless you like your tea so strong that it needs hammering). And the fact that it's plastic means that it's easy to clean and doesn't tarnish.
I've ended up buying 3 of these because friends have also been impressed and I've bought the other two as presents. (It serves me right for trying to make a joke out of it in the first place!).
Anyway, I hope that this review is helpful in some way when making the decision.
Thanks for reading it.
