I didn't want to purchase loose leaf teas (too lazy; too inconvenient if I'm traveling), but my hubby wanted to try a tea that was only loose leaf variety - so I bought this. Great quality - not as annoying as I would have pictured. We still have to buy the pre-bagged teas (travel - I detest most hotel teas), but this was good quality and worth the purchase.
I have never purchased a tea infuser before since I have always used tea bags. When I decided to buy some canisters of loose teas from the Sipscriptions collection, this seemed like a great option. I have not been disappointed with this infuser. The teas taste great and I have not noticed any leaves in my tea due to the small holes this infuser has.
