This is one of my favorite and best (in my opinion) way to brew my tea. It is durable, doesn’t leak, doesn’t crack or doesn’t do anything bad. It’s really easy to use and works for all types of tea. It’s also pretty cool when you see all the leaves floating around and the darker tea at the bottom. Also, it is really easy to use and fits directly over any mug. I’ve had no troubles cleaning it or using it. I highly recommend for all beginners or people looking for a cheap, easy way to brew tea.
