THE BEST TEA INFUSER EVER,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: TEA Infuser - GREEN - with drip stand - made by Tovolo (Kitchen & Home)
This is very similar in concept to the AdHoc tea egg Adhoc floating tee egg red- tea ball for cups and came out a year later. This takes the AdHoc basic idea, makes it better and looks even more stylish.
For those who prefer leaf teas to tea bags there has always been a problem with how you brew your cuppa. Used tea-leaves can be messy to get rid and old-fashioned tea infusers are often tricky to use.
The Tovolo is dead simple. The tea "chamber" is large enough for there to be enough movement by the tea leaves while it is being brewed. Tea leaves expand a lot once they come into contact with boiling water and there needs to be enough space in the infuser for them to fully circulate. This design does that brilliantly.
When your cuppa is brewed getting rid of the old tea lives is simplicity itself. You snap off the stainless steel bottom and just tap them out.
The construction of the unit feels good and I would guess that it would go on performing effectively for years.
If you enjoy fine teas like I do this is a must buy.
