I've recently started drinking loose leaf teas again, and needed a second infuser for my office.
I like to be different, and have unique items that others don't have, and that put a smile on my face - so Pink Pig Infuser came along!
The material is a light...silicone? Plastic? I'm not quite sure what it is to be honest! It is thin enough that the plug on the bottom of the pig is easy to take out and put back in, but not so thin that it's flimsy (aka it is not flimsy at all). It easily holds the 1 teaspoon of tea leaves I normally use (it could easily fit a Tablespoon!), and cleans out and dries so quickly and easily.
I like that the chain is stainless steel - it will last me years to come!
The holes look small, but as per one of my pictures below, it does leak out smaller grains of tea into your cup. This doesn't bother, me. If you don't want any leaves in your tea, I would probably just go for an old fashioned all stainless steel infuser instead.
When you place the pig in your cup, it does float near the top, however, it also steeps the leaf flavour into the hot water as well - only a few holes might surface with the pigs head.
The best part is taking the pig out (I'm so juvenile sometimes!). You'll find out when you have your own tea pig.
Overall, if you like cute things and tea, and don't mind some tea leaves floating around in your tea, I would give this infuser a go.
