The pincer spoon tea infuser is perfect for making one cup of tea. Simply open the spoon by pushing the end of the spoon forward, allowing the scoop to separate and scoop up your tea. When you release the end of the spoon, the scoop will recover. Then, just let it steep in your cup of hot water. It is made from 18-8 stainless steel so it will never rust. The fine mesh will contain your tea leaves so that no leaves or residue gets into your drink.
