Review: Fox Kitchen's Steel Tea Infuser and Tea Scoop

The last tea infuser I had, I gave to my mother-in-law because she is a big tea drinker. But, then I had to temporarily quit drinking my loose tea because I no longer had an infuser. Luckily, I got another one. In fact, I got two from Fox Kitchen. One is big enough for a tea kettle, the other is small enough for a coffee cup.

   And it came with a handy-dandy tea scoop. All of these tea tools are made of stainless steel, so they look simple yet stylish. And I will not have to worry about them breaking anytime soon. They are also dishwasher safe, so I don't need to worry about scrubbing them by hand.
   The kettle infuser is smartly made. It is not clunky, but the handle is big enough for you to grab and lift it out of the kettle. The holes are small enough to not let any tea fall through and into your water. I am grateful for that, because I am not a fan of drinking leaves. The cup infuser comes with an attached chain, so you don't have to fish around in your cup with a spoon to get it out. Again, the holes are plenty small.
   The scoop can be deceitful. If you are a pro at drinking loose tea, it will be easy for you to determine how much to add to your infusers. If you are not a pro, I suggest start with little and build it from there. I learned that the hard way. The first cup I made was so strong, I was unable to finish it.
   Other than that little unfortunate experience (brought on by my ignorance, not product failure), this is a delightful pack. Recommended.
Full disclosure: I was sent this product free of charge in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
