Joie's Meow Cat-shaped Tea Infuser makes it fun to steep a fresh and flavorful cup of loose leaf tea as easily as using tea bags. Fill the infuser only halfway with loose tea, so tea leaves have room to fully expand. Hang the cat onto a tea cup or mug with the infuser inside and pour in just boiled water. Meow will steep tea in 3 minutes while it releases the essential oils for a maximum infusion of aroma and flavor. Once desired brew strength is achieved, set the Infuser aside to cool before emptying and cleaning. Great for making mulled cider and wine, too. Fill with desired spices instead of tea. Made from 18/8 stainless steel and BPA-free plastic. It's fun to use, easy to fill, reusable, and more economical than using disposable tea bags. These fun and functional tea accessories make clever gifts and kitchen decorations, too! Hand wash in warm, soapy water.
