This uniquely designed tea-infuser makes it easy to brew loose leaf tea. The Floatea is simple to use; simply insert the loose-leaf tea into the stainless steel chamber and place it into a cup of hot water. The tiny holes allow the tea to brew while preventing particles in the mug. The infuser will float in the mug during the perfect steeping process-- about 2 to 5 minutes. Soft-touch on the grip handle makes removal easy.
