The Smart Tea Maker is great for the every day tea drinker. Put the loose tea in, pour your hot water over, and let sit for the required brewing time. When it is ready, simply sit the Smart Tea Maker over your cup and your tea will be released thru the chamber on the bottom directly into your cup. The fine mesh strainer will not allow any sediment through. The Smart Tea Maker is especially useful for green, white and oolongs, which can make multiple infusions.
