We've been using these ones for years. I keep one for tea and one for coffee because it's fine enough to make real coffee with when out too :D It packs away inside my mug and takes a wee poly bag of tea inside it too.

I was brought up on earl grey and have become a slight tea snob because of it. Now I'm really thinking of buying that to replace the qt I've bought. I actually don't mind qt but I'd absolutely love a nice cup of earl grey. Lol.

I like lapsang souchong or gunpowder for breakfast : ) though I sometimes just start a mug with one of the hand tieds and keep that going all morning. Jade rings were in the mug this morning though :)

Same issue as the clamp one. Filling it's a footer, the fine tea comes through the mesh, and it's crushable in a pack.

Brewing in a mug means that the leaves don't get room to swell properly when further confined in most strainers and they don't settle the way they do in a pot.
I think that's why the mug shaped, and very fine meshed, strainer really does work so well. It's fits inside my mug, but has a greater volume to allow the tea leaves to soak and swell, to mask and give off their full flavour. It simply lifts out and a gentle tap removes the leaves for disposal.....unless using a multiple infusion leaf when the strainer can just be set down on it's wee cover.....which is another good thing :approve: It keeps the tea warm as it's masking.....I've minded the English.....when it's brewing :eek: (always sounds like beer to me :eek: )

Sounds like someone is a tad addicted to tea! :D jokes! Lol.

Could be worse you could be addicted to cigarettes like me! :/
