I've never had a tea infuser before but this little monkey face tea infuser is so cute. I just love how cute it is hanging on the side of my cup. The face of the monkey changes color to let you know when your tea is at the right strength to drink. I think this would make a really cute gift for the tea lover's in your life. I didn't have any loose leaf tea so I cut open a tea bag I had and poured the tea leaves into the bottom container and added the silicone monkey to my cup of hot water. It works just like it says it does and the holes in the infuser are small enough to let water in while not letting the tea leaves out.
When you place the little silicone tea holder into your cup, the face of it is brown. As the tea steeps and gets to the right strength...
the face turns red. And as you can see, it really works and the color of the face really changes color as it sits in the hot water.
