lProduct Description

An essential tea tool, this universal in-cup infuser basket fits all cups, mugs and pots and makes brewing your perfect cup of Bluebird tea effortless and hassle free.

 

Infuser baskets are the best way of brewing loose leaf teas like ours because they give the leaves space to fully unfurl and infuse all of their delicious flavours.

 

Just pop into your cup or pot, add tea, pour water, wait, then remove the infuser basket and throw away the leaves. A quick rinse under the tap and your ready to go again!

 

Infuser lip is 9.5cm wide and the basket is 5.5cm meaning it fits almost any mug!

not too hot, not too open

I ordered this with some trepidation after reading reviews saying the rim got too hot and that smaller tea leaves escaped the mesh. Having now used it extensively with my porcelain teapot, I can say that:

1) The rim does get plenty warm, but not too hot to handle. It might be different if used on a ceramic mug (which conducts heat more than porcelain), but in my usage it's fine. I wouldn't want a rubberized or silicone edge, as some have suggested, because it would make this simple infuser harder to clean. It's fine the way it is.

2) I drink a lot of Scottish breakfast, rooibos, and chai teas, all of which tend to have very small leaves, and have had no issue with leaves escaping the infuser mesh.

3) This is much easier to fill than a filter bag, better for the environment, and pretty besides. I'm quite happy with it.

Life changing

I was always a tea ball kinda girl. But let’s face it - tea balls are fiddly. I never knew how much easier making a cup of tea could be until I tried this little device. So much quicker and easier to make tea and cleaning up is a breeze!

*****

What’s not to like?

This does the job perfectly! Small mesh so even fine bends don’t leak through and it cleans out beautifully.

*****

Great for making pots!

Great little addition, really useful if you don't have an individual tea infuser or if you want to make a bigger pot!

Best i’ve Had

Seriously robust, the mesh is perfect

Tea strainer, no brainer

Love this! Small, simple and easy to clean. Could do with a little handle as it can get hot when it’s been sat over the boiling water. Otherwise does the job.

Simple is best

Absolutely love the little infuser, I take it camping with me instead of having to lug around all the other amazing gadgets I seem to have collected. Its light weight and the rim is wide enough that it sits on any cup I own.
Only (very small) downside I've found is that some tiny particles seem to sometimes fit through the mesh, but honestly doesn't bother me in the slightest.

Amazing service has per usual!

Great infuser! I started off

Great infuser! I started off buying tea bags to use with my Bluebird tea but wanted something less wasteful. This does the job and is really quick and easy to use. I find its best emptied when it's cooled down (and when most the moistures gone) so leave mine in a cup in the sink after using. Perfect tea everytime :)

A loose leaf convert. This

A loose leaf convert. This basket takes the faff out of the job and is a doddle to clean.

Easy to use and wash

I'm a big fan of this infuser. I have used a couple of similar products in the past but this is by far superior. The design allows the tea to expand. It is cleans well. It fits all my mugs of all different sizes. It just makes everything really easy!

Needs some insulation

Just tried this out for the first time, and it's a great little gizmo. The wide rim means it will fit about 99% of cups/mugs. Couple of downsides, though...

One is that it let one or two tiny pieces of tea through, despite being very close mesh. As a newbie to the whole loose tea thing, maybe that's just an occupational hazard.

The second thing, which just needs a small design tweak, is that the rim becomes quite hot by the end of the brewing period. The simple addition of some rubber insulation on the outer edge would fix this, I think.

I find this open tea

I find this open tea infuser better than my closed cup model as it lets the tea unfurl

Tea infuser

I have a couple of other infusers which you leave in the mug which were awful, but this infuser is the best and I wish I had bought it sooner. Its easy to use, works well and fits all my mugs perfectly! Thank you

The In-cup infuser basket is perfect, easy to use and easy to wash! Would definite recommend it to make the perfect cup of tea :-)

Universal infuser does what it says on the pack

this is brilliant for all loose leaf teas. Easy to clean and its rarely away from my side and is well travelled as it goes away with me even when i'm away from home. Easy, simple and worth every penny

Gorgeous teas

I bought some Skinny Minny a couple of months ago from a shop near me and then found Bluebird Tea Co. online with loads of teas to choose from. I had to order loads more and an infuser.
I'm not a massive tea drinker but love my Skinny Minny which not only tastes good but it really has helped to curb my appetite between meals. Loads of my friends and colleagues are drinking it too and qll of them have told me how much they like the taste. Great stuff - I'll definitely keep ordering more....Read more

Blue Bird Tea Infuser

Very handy little gadget - it almost, but not quite fits our tea pots, and is much easier than most infusers, but best of all does an excellent job of sitting on the top of a mug to infuse an excellent cup of bluebird tea.
