Kid Boy Galaxy Robot Alien Letter Food Casual Set Review
Dove: It's a mesh ball. It holds enough tea for a very large cup. It closes tightly enough that the tea leaves don't leak out. Not much else to say....
DRTMUSIC: Its nice and does what it has too.. does leave some impurities in tea when dealing with finely grinded herbs. Overall, im happy with the purchase.
E. Degroot "Designer & Cynic": While I didn't have any leaf leakage, the moment I opened the ball, the latch fell off. It is attached by a tiny, misshapen dot of metal (someone described it as about the size of pencil lead) that shows no evidence of stopper or notch that might keep the latch in place upon it. I was able to finagle the latch back on enough to stay shut and be useful, but I don't think I want to deal with this every time I want a cup of tea.My suggestion: don't waste your time or money on this tea ball. Pay a few extra bucks for something trustworthy or hit up your local tea shop and make sure you're getting a good product in person.
Ellie: I gave a review on the OXO tea ball, which I had to buy because I hated cleaning this type of tea ball. I need this product for my loose green tea and for chamomile tea. To clean the mesh after either of these types of teas is an absolute chore, and one that I hated doing, and that is why I bought the OXO tea ball. This mess one, I do not recommend.
ellonwheels: It gets near daily use for tea and I also use it occasionally for herbs in soups and stews. I like the stainless steel. It cleans up nicely in the dishwasher. The mesh will hold on to small bits if you're not careful, but that's just because it's a fine mesh. The mesh part looks a bit battered these days, but again, that's just a quality of the mesh. If you like fine teas, it's just the thing. Initially, I found the chain a little loose, but I just squeezed it together better with my fingers and haven't had a problem since. It goes through the dishwasher well, but I often wash by hand since I'm just going to use it again immediately anyway. The stainless steel looks better when it goes through the dishwasher, though.
