This basket-shaped tea filter is made of stainless steel and is dishwasher safe. The strainer is tight, keeping the leaves well-contained, yet it is still very easy to clean. Both sides of the strainer are smooth and flat, making it easier for the leaves to detach during cleaning. The strainer is also spacious, allowing the leaves to fully open, which in turn helps to bring out the flavors of the tea.
Place the tea leaves in the infuser and put the infuser into the tea cup or teapot. The lid protects the infusion during steeping, and after steeping, you can use it as a coaster.
