You all know I am a tea-a-holic drinker. I have at least one mug a day. I does not matter if my tea is in either loose or bagged. However I do have a few favourites that are sold loose. When I do have loose tea I don't like to bag them because they do cost extra. They are great for on the go in a traveling mug. I preferred to use a strainer to hold my tea leaves. For awhile I did use the ball and the chain for a few years but one day I lost it. No idea where it went. Then I decided to purchase a mug with a cup strainer for easier cleaning and not getting lost.
I think this yo-yo set (cute name) is fantastic! I love the tray could be double up as a lid and a trivent to prevent the strainer from dripping all over table when I take it out of the mug. It is dishwasher safe and microwave safe. I dont have a dishwasher so it will be mostly washed by hands. I love when items are microwave safe. I hate to find out it was not and gets me annoyed that I have to find another cup that is. It holds 10oz so it holds enough for my morning tea but sometimes it might not be big enough when I am so thirsty...so I will fill it up again. See problem solved. The strainer works with any cup and works with any loose tea leaves. I have seen other strainers and I think they were useless since the holes are large enough for certain tea leaves to pass through. I hate to swallow tea with the leaves. It is gross. This strainer is perfect, something I was looking for to keep at home or the office. This is a great Christmas gift for tea-a-holic or just starting out drinking tea. I think this is a perfect gift for everyone. Grab one of these mugs and add a bag of tea leaves = the perfect gift for this holiday season. It is so affordable at MSRP $10 and it is available at The Bay.
Bodum would like to offer one of my readers their own yo-yo mug set.
