Mr. Manatea...My New Friend

After diving deep into the tainted tea world, I began exploring organic teas and came across Numi Organic Tea and decided to give their Orange Spice loose leaf white tea a spin.  Eager to try, I dug out a tea infuser that had been stashed in my kitchen drawer for many, many years and stuffed it full of tea.

Mellowing into Zen state, I inhaled the heavenly aroma of the orange peel, schizandra berries and lemongrass before taking my fist sip of pure organic goodness and...


My tea tasted like metal - blah!  I knew immediately that the culprit was not the tea, but rather the stainless steel infuser that is typically used to brew loose leaf teas.

This was unacceptable!

I hit the internet in search of a better solution and found my new bestie...Mr Manatea.

Why I love him:
  • He's made from BPA-free, food-safe silicone
  • His tiny holes are small enough to keep the tea from escaping but big enough to let the flavor out
  • His little flippers allow him to perch on the side of the cup while brewing (he's so cute)
  • He makes me feel like I am vacationing in Florida
  • He holds A LOT of tea, for a stronger brew
  • His mighty tail doubles as a spoon
  • He's very easy to clean - his head pops off!
  • He doesn't taint my perfect tea with any additional flavoring
  • He chats with me (just kidding...or am I?)

If manatees aren't your cup of tea - try the deep sea diver, teatanic or Mr. Tea.
