The past couple of years I started getting into loose leaf tea, but I always found it annoying using one of those closed spoons because the leaves would often fall out, leaving little twigs in what I ended up drinking. The first time I saw this tool, I was instantly intrigued. You add hot water and loose leaf tea, and then when the tea is brewed, you set the Perfect Tea Maker on top of a mug, the contraption releasing only the water into your cup. You end up with no twigs, and it’s easy to clean by adding water and pouring the contents out the top.
