I bought both the SG tea and coffee infusers expecting to love the coffee one. I returned the coffee one but kept the tea one.

I have tried a few tea infusers over the decades, none of which were good. This one is simply superb. I use it with (shock, horror) a mug. I find 5g of loose tea yields two or three mugs. (I'm using FT organic first flush Darjeeling from a small tea company based in Bristol with which I have only a customer connection.)

The reason the mug works so well is that, after the first infusion, I place the infuser in a ramekin until the next infusion. Since it almost fully drains there is no bitterness (and this is where the gold-plating comes into its own) associated with re-infusing.

Importantly, the plastic body within which the three gold-plated sections are enclosed, neither results in a plasticky nor metal taste.

Bought one of these in a retail shop a long time ago.
Finally found a seller on Amazon, and bought 3 more.

Tea leaves don't "escape" from the infuser, but the flow of water allows quick infusion.
Fits great in a tea pot, but probably too big for a mug.

Good tea infuser. Catches the tiniest amount of tea leaves and sits nicely inside a tea pot (as long as pot isn't one of the smaller ones. Well made, would recommend.

Works fantastically. Got it as a present for my father and he loves it. Holes are fine enough that no leaves get through and the gold plating means there is no dilution of the taste at all.

Tends to bob at the top, so could do with being less buoyant.
