A couple of weeks ago I ran out of coffee, and then I ran out of tea bags. I need my morning caffeine! So I figured I’d make use of the tea infuser spoon that somehow I acquired some years ago. I had LOTS of lose tea. It works remarkably well! The tea can be just as strong than with a tea bag, it works for two mugs of tea and the tea leaves don’t come out. Of course, it’s messier than a tea bag and I have to wash it, but I’m saving a lot of money on tea bags AND I’m getting to use the enormous quantities of lose tea I have.
I’m not sure I’ll continue using it once I go through all my lose tea (several months from now, I’m sure), but meanwhile it works great!
