reviewed Tea Infuser Mug by Aladdin
921 tasting notes

This infuser is probably the most useful thing in my tea tool arsenal, it beats out all my fancy tea baskets, cups, pots, and spoons…why, you may ask? Because it is extremely versatile!

The double walled plastic allows for the tea to remain hot for quite a while and it keeps your hands from also becoming hot, a huge plus. It is one of the most frustrating things to be out and about and stop at a tea shop for a cup on the go and even when those cups have little jackets I still find them too hot. This mug is insulated! I get to have one of those adorable crocheted jackets for aesthetics for once.

Another of this infuser’s HUGE selling points is its adorable flipping basket. There is something really entertaining about flipping the basket down into the hot water, watching it steep, and then flipping the basket back up until needed again. I wish that the basket could drop lower, because the tea sometimes does not reach the bottom unless you vigorously flip the basket a few times to stir it up.

I was warned in advance that this infuser leaks (it says it on the label) so as long as it is kept up right then there is no problem. Sure at times I wish this was a ‘toss in your purse and drink later’ kinda mug, but I worry things would be lost in the process (like the precious basket!!)

I have had this lovely mug for over a year and I have not noticed any staining or weird smells, so I continue to love it. I have microwaved the mug a few times and noticed it performs just as well as when I use stove heated water.

I am a nerdy, obsessive, crafty, tea blogging, gaming nut. Yeah, that about sums me up! Ok, you want something more informative….

I am a Geek, hardcore fan-girl Geek. It shapes my life. I spend a large chunk of my life painting miniatures and contemplating my various army layouts. I hoard dice, get obsessed with games, and will talk about whatever fandom, game, etc that I am obsessed over until I am blue in the face. I am not just a gamer girl type Geek, I also fit in the collecting knowledge and spending way too much time reading and researching category of Geek.

But there is more to me than just being a giant nerd. I love tea, always have and have just gotten more and more obsessed as I get older. I love trying new teas and then writing lengthy descriptions about them on my blog, I love reading and researching the history and culture of tea, I love collecting tea pots and fancy tea tools.

When the weather allows it, I love to go mushroom hunting. I don’t eat them, instead I use them for photography and spore prints. I love nature and worked as a Naturalist in the Northwoods one summer, it might have been the best job ever.

I have Fibromyalgia, it sucks, but I feel people who are going to interact with me should know since I tend to vanish because of it so fair warning! I do tend to not vanish very long though. Also I have some ‘social disorders’ which basically translates to I am really awkward and bad at socializing, so forgive any lack of social graces.

I also have cats, love the ocean and all aquatic life, have teal hair, love cheese, and collect hats.

My favorite tea is definitely Oolong, but I also love Japanese greens and…ok I just love tea actually :P I am not a huge fan of lemony black teas or tart fruit teas. I also loathe hibiscus (usually)

This is my actual tea wishlist, you know that I actually update and keep track of…I tend to forget Steepster’s https://www.facebook.com/notes/amanda-wilson/tea-wishlishtshopping-list-perpetually-in-progress/10152336515414411 I use my steepster WL to keep track of teas I have had and really want more of :P
