Love to travel! "katiemn" on June 24, 2014 at 2:52 am.
This is too funny! I purchased two of these tea pots in Tokyo at least 5-8 years ago. I use it daily as I am an avid tea drinker. I dropped the lid on my ceramic tile kitchen floor .. cracked it in half .. repaired it with glue .. and continued to use the kind of ugly looking thing for several years more rather than start using the second one I had in reserve! Afraid I might break that one also I guess!
Finally after several years of this depriving myself .. I asked my son who travels to Tokyo on business if he would mind purchasing me a third one so I could improve my esthetic experience of tea drinking! Well he just got back .. handed me the box and informed me that he couldn’t find it at the same store in Tokyo but since he reads Japanese .. he googled it .. AND FOUND IT ON AMAZON! I just couldn’t believe it!
You my dear reader do NOT have to take this circuitous route! After a lifetime of tea drinking .. having graduated from the early years of tea bags to the QUALITY of loose tea .. I have tried SO many different forms of tea preparation! This little unit is by far the absolute best! The basket is large enough to allow the tea leaves to circulate and bring forth their full flavor .. just wonderful!
For ease of preparation I just do this .. place filtered cold water up to the rim .. put the tea pot in the microwave for 6 minutes (in my microwave) for black tea .. less for green tea. Then place the basket in with 2+ teaspoons of tea .. put the lid on and let it steep to whatever strength level you like. Works like a charm! I wouldn’t want to be without my little tea pot .. my tea cup is a large 2.25 cup and is filled to the brim with beautiful aromatic tea each morning! Enjoy .. without all my efforts!

1. It’s large infuser allows tea leaves dance, i.e. they move along with water convection, which is necessary to make good tasting tea.
2. Infuser makes removing tea leaves easy.
3. Tea leaves motions are visible.
4. Good outlet shape, which does not allow spill.
I handle this carefully to avoid destroying.
