A great spring-action infuser for brewing tea leaves in a cup or mug. With a simple pull down motion, you can open the infuser and scoop up your desired amount of tealeaves. Once released the infuser springs shut, capturing the leaves inside. A fun, novel and attractive way to infuse loose tea in a cup or mug.

I can see why loose tea would be a problem, but this is great for things like fresh mint tea, or more bulky infusion options. This is what I got given to use in a lovely french chain of restaurants and worked a dream for fresh mint.
Completely impractical. As others have said, the two halves don't fully slide apart making it hard to empty/clean when the leaves are wet, and it can't be used solely with a mug/cup of tea because the tea leaves escape, floating around in the cup. Had to try to make it work by making the tea in a jug then pouring it into a mug with an additional tea strainer - a joke!
I agree with other comments about the wet tea leaved being difficult to clean out after use, and the leaves escaping out the side of the strainer when brewing. I could almost forgive all that, because it's a pretty product, but mine actually broke the second time I used it. I'll be taking it back for a refund. A real shame :(
After attempting to use the product..twice, and failing to make a decent cup of tea without a mass of tea leaves..I have to conclude that, as per the other reviews the product is NOT fit for purpose.
Very disappointing as Whittard's standards are usually quite high.
I agree with the above buyer. Tea leaves all over the place when trying to empty and not great to fill either. Disappointing product and not used a lot as not efficient .
