This is the LCTC infuser of choice. It is BPA free and is ideal for brewing the perfect cup of tea. The tea can only be dispensed when the infuser is placed of top of a cup. Plus, the leaves are there waiting for your second infusion. We don't recommend washing with soap. Use baking soda with boiling water and let soak, then rinse. Holds 16 fl. oz. Comes with a coaster and is available in brown or green.
