Take precision tea steeping to new heights with this fine stainless steel tea basket. Numerous micro holes line the walls of this structured metal filter allowing for three critical processes that lead to great-tasting tea: 1) cross-flow in a large volume basket releases full-bodied tea infusions, 2) fine filtering so that even the smallest leaf bits and herbals, like rooibos, don't escape into your infusion, and 3) rapid draining when your infusion is complete allows for precise steeping and re-steeping. Go ahead and turn any mug into your tea mug, and start steeping like a boss!

Easy to clean

Smooth stainless steel very easy to clean. Does not fit in some of the smaller coffee/tea cups but that’s OK because I prefer a larger cup. I also purchased the tuffy steeper collapsible style and that fits very well in any size cup.


When I just need one cup, this is perfect.

Great customer service

Thank you TeaSpot, for your prompt customer service and replacing the mesh basket. This experience is unlike other online companies. I appreciate so much that you heard and responded.

Not the best...

Tea leaves get stuck in the rim of the basket. Not the best experience. I purchased two hoping I would love them. When I inquired about returning them was let down to realize would only be refunded a small fraction of what I paid because of the their return policy. Totally disappointing and not the best experience...

Hi, Deborah! Thank you for taking the time to review our Tea Filter Basket. We take all feedback to heart and are very sorry that this product wasn't what you were expecting. A member of our customer service team will be in touch shortly via email to see if we can help.

Perfect for bubble mug

I have several Polish pottery bubble mugs that most infusers just fall in. But THIS! It fits perfect so no loose tea free floating while steeping or sipping! It’s perfect.
