This is my favorite loose tea gadget. It's a little tea strainer that you fill with your favorite loose tea and insert (hang) into any size cup of hot water. I actually prefer to pour the hot water over the tea when filling my cup. Steep as long or short as you want. It cleans easily and is very fuss-free. It looks nice too. Consider adding some teas to your gift too. Teavana teas are absolutely scrumptious.
