Making tea has its messy aspects: the tea bag needs a place to rest comfortably after being extracted from your mug, or the in-pot strainer can let tiny pieces of the brewed leaves through into your drink. The Lippa Tea Infuser is designed to make teamaking mess-free and easy. Simply add loose tea to the fine stainless steel filter and close it with its silicone cap. Place it cap side up in a mug and pour your tea. Once your tea reaches its desired strength, use the built-in handle on the cap to lift out the infuser and place it cap side down, where its lip will catch any drips. Its compact, durable shape makes the Lippa Tea Infuser easy to carry and use on the go at the office or while traveling. Hand wash with soap and water.
