Convenient tea infuser also works as a yogurt strainer


Carla is fond of her stainless steel Brew-in-Mug Extra-fine Tea Infuser ($(removed)). Here's why:

  1. It fits the mugs we already have (It fits perfectly into mugs with a diameter greater than 2-7/8").
  2. The holes are tiny to prevents leaf particles from passing through but the infuser is very porous.
  3. It has a silicon rimmed lid to keep the tea warm as it steeps.
  4. The lid flips over to hold the infuser when you remove it from the mug.

The mesh is so fine that it also makes a dandy strainer for making Greek style yogurt. Just pour regular yogurt into it and let the water drain through the holes to yield thick, almost spreadable, yogurt.
