This is a very cute infuser, but not really useful in the regular brewing of tea. It has three main problems that prevent it from being anything more than a novelty discussion piece:* It is difficult to load, with a neck opening only around 1.5cm (0.5 inches) across. My other infusers are all a bit over an inch.* Many leaves come through the large infusion holes.* The shape makes it difficult to clean.I'll still leave it sitting around my desk at the office as a funny little pun, but after giving it a few tries for tea making I've reverted to my conventional infuser.
I really like the T-Rex infuser. He is much easier to appreciate if you have a clear cup.I did not find him to be very easy to clean. It wasn't super hard, but you really need something to help pull the tea out. Also, the holes in him are a bit big so a fair amount of tea leaves will leak out. This is a problem with most silicone infusers, but a bit worse with this one. Neither of those are serious issues or any kind of deterrent in making this purchase.
cute looking but not practical. To small of an opening to get loose tea in. And the filter holes are too large so loose teas spills out in your water.
