Economical & Efficient
For brewing tea, this is a must. Most infusers have holes too large so the tea leaves or dust will leak into the tea cup/pot/pitcher. Too many infusers are primarily plastic, which retains the flavor of the teas.
The Finum mesh screen is so fine, I rarely have any particles steep through to my cup. Because the screen is stainless steel, the Finum brew basket does not retain any odors! I wash it by hand; it does not need the dishwasher.
The Teavana 'perfect tea maker' is anything but! The teas would get caught in their larger openings of the plastic straining screen, the plastic container itself retained the flavor of the teas (despite declarations of their employees and packaging) and it took forever to completely dry out after brewing.
I use this brew basket in my 16 ounce/32 ounce glass measuring cups, directly into my 2 quart glass pitcher or travel mugs. I usually want more than an 8 oz cup of tea so I brew a variety of portions. This basket is perfect for a variety of brewing needs.
Due to plastic retaining odors from coffee, tea, hot chocolate, etc., I stopped using plastic lined travel mugs. I now use only glass, porcelain, ceramic or stainless steel to brew/drink my tea. The odors wash completely from the these without difficulty and without using the dishwasher.
Happy Brewing
