Artistic and graceful, the Asobu Tea Party Mug with Stainless Steel Infuser is like a teapot in a cup.The Tea Mug has a large infuser basket that holds the tea leaves and a glass lid that keeps the tea warm while it steeps. It is very easy to use: place the infuser basket in the cup, add the tea, the hot water and then the cover. Watch your tea leaves unfold and steep perfectly. As soon as your tea reaches the desired color, you can place the cover upside down and use it as a trivet to hold your infuser while you enjoy your tea. You can always place the infuser basket back and add more water to re-steep your finest teas one or two more times.
