The easy grip, silicon rimmed, stainless steel lid doubles as a saucer/drip catcher.
Hint: Use baking soda dissolved in warm water to clean tea stains as needed.

I recently switched to using looseleaf tea instead of bags. This is so much easier to use than those clamp spoon infuser things. This makes it easy to measure out how much you want, and are easy to clean. It fits snugly in most mugs, and fits in a couple smaller-mouthed ones too. And I love the lid.

I bought this thinking "hey, I'll give it a try!" I would be lost without it. It sits perfectly on a mug or my travel mug, the lid keeps everything hot. And it is super easy to clean. There are so many different type of tea infusers on the market, but this one is well worth the investment!

I miss my loose-leaf tea when we travel, so have been carrying a cheap strainer that isn't very convenient or effective, especially with different sized mugs. This stainless steel filter is perfect! I love the micro holes that keep tea leaves out of my cup and the fact that it fits so well in the cup. Now I can freely carry my own leaves rather than be forced to drink the inferior tea bags that even the best hotels insist on serving. Thanks, Arbor Teas!

I can't recommend this highly enough. I didn't buy it here, but it's the same item. Fantastic. The large area means the tea has lots of room to float around while it steeps. Easy to clean -- I just rinse mine out and throw it in the dishwasher occasionally. Turn the lid upside down and you have a convenient place to put the steeper. Indestructible.
