I've gotten a few compliments and it has been a great way to find out who drinks tea around the office. It also does a nice job at keeping my tea hot until I'm ready to drink. It is easy to clean
The list of negative points. It drips when you remove it from the cup and flip it over. And the holes in the tea ball are rather large and allow finer teas to escape. The fit of the plastic leaf section of the tea ball is poor. I feel this level of function and workmanship is not worth the high price tag.
I would not buy this again or recommend it to a friend. In fact, I plant to purchase some type of disposable tea bags for my loose tea.
I like the saucer because it keeps the heat in and more importantly, it keeps bugs and other things from dropping into my tea. It's also excellent for green tea because when I'm done brewing, I just flip it over and all the liquid pools into the edges of the saucer. I'm surprised that this is actually cheaper than some other tea infuser options. It's easy to clean. The metal part and leaf are attached and come off the branch easily. The leaf of the infuser is what clasps it together. This is better for taller cups, not shallow cups, but if you shift the ball a bit, as long as the cup is as long or longer than the branch, it will fit.
The saucer looks flat in the picture. It is actually slightly convex so that any liquid drips onto the mound and into the edges of the saucer.
