HIC's Brew In Mug Tea Infuser easily steeps loose tea leaves directly in the cup and prevents bits from escaping into the brew for a perfect, cleaner cup of tea every time. The Brew In Mug Tea Infuser basket nestles into the cup while the handles rest securely onto the rim to steady it in place. No need to hold it in place so hands stay safely away from hot contents. The lid confines tea leaves inside the basket so tea steeps without loose bits escaping into the brew. Easy to use. Simply measure in loose tea and place the lid on top. Set the infuser basket into a cup so the handles rest securely on the cup rim. Pour boiled water into the cup and allow tea to steep for 3 minutes to release tea's essential oils for maximum infusion of aroma and flavor. Once the desired brew strength has been achieved, remove the infuser and discard the used tea leaves. Great for making mulled cider, too. Fill with favorite spices instead of tea. Made from 18/8 stainless steel with non-slip silicone handles. It's sturdy and durable, reusable, economical, and compact for easy storage. A useful addition to kitchen utensils and tea accessories, it's easy to use and empty. Dishwasher safe for easy cleanup.
