The simplest and easiest infuser we have found. Just drop into your cup, add a 1 teaspoon -1 tablespoon of loose leaf tea. Steep & Enjoy. When done steeping, simply remove the infuser and discard tea. However, we recommed recycling the used tea leaves. They make a wonderful fertilizer (like coffee grounds) for your garden, are compostable, or if you are so inclinded you can dry them and use them as odor aborbers in litter boxes (just sprinkel it in), your fridge (we use a paper cup) , or put them in a muslin bag and throw them in your gym bag (take that Odor Eaters!).
