Mesh Tea Ball

Whether you're brewing cups of your favorite loose-leaf tea or seasoning wine, cider or soup with spices, you'll be happy to have this infuser on hand. Fine mesh retains spent tea leaves and spices so they can be neatly removed and discarded. A simple hook attaches the chain to the rim of a cup or pot. Made of stainless steel.

Works OK for tea
January 23, 2013
I don't know if I just got a product that's been stored away for a while, but the chain was rusted. Also, when I open it completely, the hinge gets slightly out of place enough that it's not easy to close. I have to guide the hinge while closing the ball in order to get it closed completely. It keeps most of the tea out of the cup, but some still seeps out. In the end, I guess it gets the job done, but not nearly as easy or nice as I thought it would be.
Pros: Easy to Clean, Easy to Store, Size, Design, Weight
Cons: Quality, Temperamental

The Truly Handy Mesh Ball
December 25, 2012
I love this little mesh ball - I use it for tea, for mulling spices, for herbs dropped into a sauce. I even filled it with peppercorns once, and let it sit in a pan while cooking some short ribs. It's just so handy! It is easy to store, easy to clean, weighs next to nothing and sits there in the drawer, ready for it's next adventure.
Pros: Easy to Use, Easy to Clean, Easy to Store, Size, Versatile, Weight

What I was looking for!
February 16, 2012
The item is terrific for doing what it is supposed to do! The ball sinks down in the tea cup unlike tea bags. I've put tea bags into the tea ball to get the most flavor out of the tea bag as possible. I used to keep my tea bags floating on top of the water while sipping the tea but now I don't. The tea diffuses quickly. It is terrific for great big coffee mugs because the chain is long enough to to sink to the bottom.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Quality, Easy to Clean, Easy to Store, Design, Weight
