Cute little unit

I got a 2nd one as I found the silicone tended to retain some scent of the fragranced teas (Naughty & Nuce, etc) so I got a 2nd one to use with unflavored teas

I should have read the reviews

I was hoping this would be easier to clean than the metal strainer. It is not. I can live with that but the holes are too big and ended up with tea leaves at the bottom of the cup. I will save it for travel but mostly because it wouldn't bother me to lose it unlike some of my other brewing equipment.

Thank you for taking the time to review our Tuffy Steeper. We're sorry to hear that this was not what you expected, but glad to hear that you will find it useful for travel. Thanks for trying it out!

I didnt pay enough attention to the design

I like a big cup of tea and have a hard time finding a strainer that wont sink into the cup. My husband made me a tool that holds my steeper at rim level on my oversized mugs but I was looking for something more permanent. I had high hopes for this steeper and was excited to see it had a "handle" that would hold the steeper to the rim of my mug. I purchased hastily and when i arrived I realized that the "handle" faced inward and there was no way the steeper would attach to the mug. This steeper is useless for me as it doesn't stay afloat on a wider mouth mug. I also purchased a mug with steeper from this sight and love it and that is the way to go for me..a few mugs and steepers!

Thank you for your feedback. We're sorry to hear that this steeper did not fit your oversized mug. Please contact customer service if you need assistance with a steeper that will be right for you!

Doesn't work that well

Unfortunately quite a bit of tea escapes through the holes. It's also not too easy to clean. I think I prefer a stainless steeper.

Thank you for your feedback. We're sorry this steeper didn't work well for your tea.
Some teas and herbs that are processed into finer pieces (such as rooibos) will escape through any steeper, but larger whole-leaf teas and blends should stay put! One of our customer service representatives will be in touch with you to see how we can help. Thanks for trying our Tuffy Steeper!


So easy to use
