See this great product here: Squirrel Tea Infuser by Decodyne
My husband and I lately have become loose tea junkies. We discovered that one of our local markets has a fantastic selection of bulk loose teas and have been sampling many to find our favorite blends. We have an infuser teapot, but sometimes I just want to make a single cup for myself, so a smaller tea infuser like this silicone squirrel is perfect for the job. I have several individual tea infusers and this by far is the cutest and most clever design of them all! I love the way that the squirrel perfectly perches on the edge of my cup, and my two young children are also quite amused at the sight of the squirrel and the way its tail rotates around. In addition to being pleasant on the eye, this really makes a great cup of tea. The squirrel’s tail easily pops open to reveal a good sized cavity to easily place your favorite tea leaves. It is equally easy to attach back together, then all you have to do is fill your favorite cup with hot water, rotate the squirrel’s tail to a downward position, and perch it on the side of the cup. There are many holes in the tail portion which allows a nice flow for the water to mix with the tea, but are also small enough that no large pieces of tea leaf will escape out into your cup. The silicone surface is also very easy to clean when you’re done – just dump out the spent tea leaves and give it a quick rinse in the sink! I’m very glad that I was able to order this through a promotion in order to evaluate and provide my honest review. It will get a lot of use in our house!
