The Tovolo Tea Infuser really looks like a device from an alien movie. Despite appearances in can be very useful when making tea. It’s made of heat-resistant polycarbonate and stainless steel and works very much like most tea spoons/tongs. Additionally it comes with something like a dock or base which prevents dripping on surfaces and where you can leave the infuser in case you want to make more tea. This product id dishwasher safe and comes in three different colors – green, purple and red. To use it you need to place the leaves in the strainer and then attach the handle. I think the design is quite versatile, as it can be futuristic, modern and retro at the same time depending on the context you decide to put it in.
