"Hopeless leaker" star star_border star_border star_border star_border I hoped this little infuser would allow me to experiment with the vast range of loose leaf teas out there - alas I was wrong. I filled it for the first time (Twinings Earl Grey so a good quality brand), made sure the 2 halves were firmly together and put it into the cup of boiling water.....only for tea leaves to immediately begin escaping through the holes. The whole point of using one of these was so I wouldn't have to get the teapot out for a single cup or mug but I guess it is back to teabags for me.
